4. Account, available credit and top-ups

4.1 The Customer shall have an account associated with their subscriber number in which their available credit at any given time to use the service will be recorded (the Account). the Customer will be informed of the available credit in their Account after each call they make or each SMS they send.

4.2 In order to make calls, send messages or make any use of the Service which involves generating voice or data traffic at the Customer's initiative, it will be indispensable to have the necessary credit in the Account to perform the requested traffic, in accordance with the applicable rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the absence of credit in the Account shall in no event prevent making calls to emergency number 112 nor, save in the cases provided under Clause 7, receiving messages and calls which do not involve any charge to the Customer.

4.3 The Customer may increase the credit available in their Account by topping up their SIM card at any time while the Service remains activated. To do this, the Customer may choose any of the means of topping-up provided by YOIGO, in accordance with the information supplied on its website, www.yoigo.com (cash points, authorised distributors, petrol stations, on the YOIGO website itself, etc.).

4.5 Calls made to the short numbers assigned to the provision of emergency service calls shall be free of charge.
