6. TAG Mobile Services

TAG Mobile service is provided at the company's discretion. TAG Mobile may change pricing or the company's Terms and Conditions of Service, from time to time, without notice. Unless expressly prohibited by law, TAG Mobile reserves the right to modify or cancel a subscriber's service, an account, or take corrective action at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, violation of any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Service. Check the TAG Mobile website, https://tagmobile.com, for the most recent pricing and changes to the Terms and Conditions of Service. A subscriber's right to use TAG Mobile service is subject to TAG Mobile business practices, policies, procedures, rates and Terms and Conditions of Service. TAG Mobile may change the Terms and Conditions of Service at any time. TAG Mobile will notify subscribers of change to the Terms and Conditions of Service that are determined to be materially adverse to a subscriber's service 30 days in advance of the change. If subscriber does not terminate service within 30 days of receiving this notice of a change in the Terms and Conditions of Service, subscriber agrees to accept any such changes.

TAG Mobile provides mobile telecommunications services using the geographic areas covered by two of the largest 5G+ networks in America. International calling is subject to additional Terms and Conditions. TAG Mobile may provide Lifeline supported services in these areas based on state or entity authorized licensing areas. TAG Mobile does not guarantee coverage availability in all areas. Local phone numbers may not be available in all areas. Subscribers do not have the ability to use TAG Mobile service with any other wireless phone, device, or on another network. Subscribers may not use an TAG Mobile handset with any other service or network. Airtime may be used for domestic calling from the United States and for other services as provided in these Terms and Conditions of Service. TAG Mobile service is for personal use only and may not be used in a manner that interferes with another TAG Mobile customer's use of service. TAG Mobile has determined that ability to provide good service to subscribers may be impaired when customers place abnormally high number of calls, sends, or receive unusually high number of messages, or repeatedly place calls of unusually long duration, relative to typical usage by other TAG Mobile customers on similar service plans. Such non-typical usage suggests that a wireless phone is being used for other than personal use and is in violation of these Terms and Conditions of Service. TAG Mobile services are provided solely for live dialogue between two individuals. TAG Mobile services may not be used for any type of monitoring services, any data transmissions, or other non-personal related connections that do not consist of uninterrupted live dialogue between two individuals. An TAG Mobile subscriber account may be terminated, without notice, if a subscriber's usage is determined to be used in violation of the Terms and Conditions of Service for non-personal use, pager service, voicemail retrieval service, or other uses deemed inappropriate.

TAG Mobile services use radio transmissions and are therefore affected by limitations. Coverage is not available everywhere. Quality of service may be affected by conditions beyond TAG Mobile control, including atmospheric, geographical, or topographical conditions. Service may also be affected by damage to wireless handsets. TAG Mobile does not guarantee, or warrant, that service will be available at any specific time or geographical location, or that service will be provided without possible interruption. You should therefore never solely rely on your wireless phone for emergency calls, such as to 911. TAG Mobile customers have access to dial 911 in an emergency. However, occasionally a subscriber may attempt to call 911 in an area where there is no wireless coverage. If there is no wireless coverage, a subscriber's call to 911 may not go through and the subscriber should dial 911 from the nearest landline phone.

By applying or activating or using service with TAG Mobile, a subscriber agrees not to use TAG Mobile services in any way that is illegal, abusive, or fraudulent. This will be determined by TAG Mobile in its sole discretion. You may also not alter any of the software or hardware on your TAG Mobile handset for any purpose. TAG Mobile phones may not be sold to third parties.

In order to verify if you reside within a service area, please visit https://tagmobile.com. You may enter your ZIP code or locate coverage maps on the website to verify coverage. The map is only an approximation of actual coverage and may differ substantially from the areas of coverage shown on the website. Coverage can be affected by many factors such as weather, terrain, buildings, equipment, signal strength or many other factors that may affect network coverage. TAG Mobile does not guarantee coverage or network availability.

7. TAG Mobile ETC Services

TAG Mobile Lifeline plans are only available for activation by customers who reside in the areas in which TAG Mobile has been designated as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier (ETC) and services provided in these Terms and Conditions. To receive subsidized wireless service, a subscriber's principal residence address must be within an TAG Mobile ETC service area. Visit https://tagmobile.com to check whether you reside in an TAG Mobile ETC service area. To be eligible for TAG Mobile service, a subscriber must meet the applicable eligibility standards described throughout these Terms and Conditions of Service, which may be amended by TAG Mobile. Where applicable, TAG Mobile Lifeline plans are provided to you by TAG Mobile and are governed by tariffs. Tariffs are on file with the appropriate public utility commissions in each state when required and supersede any term related to the Lifeline Assistance program. TAG Mobile may provide access to tariffs through its website. Please be aware that tariffs posted online may not be official documents and you assume full responsibility for any tariff information you access on the TAG Mobile website. TAG Mobile bears no liability for the accuracy of any documents available on this website.

8. TAG Mobile Service Rates (Airtime), Features, Coverage, and Activation Fees

TAG Mobile voice usage is deducted in full-minute increments and all partial minutes are rounded up to the next minute. Airtime usage is rounded up to the nearest whole minute. Airtime applies to all message retrieval and voice calls. Unanswered outbound calls will be billed if the ring time exceeds 30 seconds.

Credits will not be given for dropped calls. Any unused airtime that expires is forfeited upon expiration or termination of eligibility in the TAG Mobile Lifeline program.
