    I won't find myself with no minutes

    Affordable plans that I can understand – and no contract to sign! Unlike other cell phones, Jitterbug has plans that make sense. Why should I pay for minutes i'm never going to use? And if do talk more than I plan, I won't find myself with no minutes like my friend who has prepaid phone.


    What does the underlined sentence mean?


    Thanks

    Re: I won't find myself with no minutes

    Many mobile phone tariffs include a certain number of minutes "talk time" per month - the number of minutes you can use your phone to make calls. Once you have used all those minutes, then you say you have no minutes left. The tariff in your piece doesn't seem to work the same way so the user will never discover ("find myself") that he has run out of talk time ("with no minutes"). His friend has a prepaid plan where he pays for a certain number of minutes at the beginning of the month. From the piece, I infer that his friend regularly uses all his minutes in less than a month and is left with no minutes of talk time until the next time he pays.
