Change USFamily.Net National Pools to the new $8.99 pool

To check for $8.99 National Service plans in your city Click Here.  $8.99 is not available in every city.

For information on our new $8.99 National Pool Click Here.

The new $8.99 national pool is very similar to our old $13.99 national pool, in fact many of the numbers may be identical.  There are some minor plan differences.  Most, but not every city is available at $8.99 and the new $8.99 pool has a hard 150 hour limit.  This is not a significant change because the fraud detection system on the old usf-i pool essentially prevented reaching that limit.   The $8.99 plan is for a single city, we also have 2-city, and traveling accounts.

Changing from the 13.99 usf-i pool to the $8.99 "net-b.us" pool

  • The change will not take place until midnight on the last day of any calendar month

  • The first opportunity to change is June 1, 2003

  • You must verify we have a local phone number for your city Click Here.  Please write down this number.  Please dial this number on your handset to verify  that it answers and is a local call.  If there is no number available for your city the 8.99 plan is not available to you. We will continue our existing 13.99 network for those users.

  • The end of your username ("the realm") will change from @usf-i.net to @net-b.us
    You must make this change in your dialer before you can access the new number on the 1st of the month.

  • You must update the number you are dialing on the 1st of the month with the number you tested and wrote down.

  • You may change to the $8.99 pool  immediately by paying the net-b.us registration fee.  There is no fee to change at the end of any month.

  • Your USFamily.Net account will automatically be extended to accommodate your savings on the new $8.99 network.  This means your next billing date will be extended by $5 for each remaining month at $13.99.

  • If you have verified the number for your city you can request the change here with your username and password.
