EZEE prepaid customers will also benefit from a new method for recharging prepaid accounts. New recharge cards, will contain simple 3-step instructions for customers. The new cards are smaller — the size of a credit card – and environmentally safe.

Old unused recharge cards, which will no longer be valid for use, will be exchanged for new ones at our Cingular Wireless retail store in Kingstown.
