At the end of every month, Telna Mobile prepares an invoice for all calls placed during the month which is sent to you via email, and the amount is automatically debited from your credit card. Telna Mobile will only send statements for months in which you have made calls. For international customers (i.e. non US citizens), Telna Mobile reserves the right to charge your card each time your unbilled usage reaches US$ 100 during a month. Itemized bills will be provided, detailing all call charges, but call details can also be seen online in near realtime at any time during the month.
