Shambhu Borah: A very happy and healthy New Year to you and yours!

I purchased a time card for $19.99 (60 minute card). With tax, it comes to $21.71 - has been this way for years. Today (1/2/18), I was charged an additional $1.20 - called a "PSCS FEE". Do you have any idea what this charge is for? Do you think it has anything to do with the fact that my phone is not a 'smart phone'?
I use the LG440G.
Thanks for your input.

Hi Richard,

Happy New Year to you as well. Good catch on the fee. PSCS stands for "Public Safety Communications Surcharge", a New York state surcharge on prepaid wireless service that took effect on Dec 1, 2017. So it doesn't have anything to do with your phone, just where you live.
