In addition, you must provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to Service, including, but not limited to, a mobile handset or other mobile access devices in working order and suitable for use in connection with Service. You are responsible for ensuring that your equipment and/or software do not disturb or interfere with WhyEquals's operations.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new or additional features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new products and services, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
    2. Free and Premium Plans. When you sign up for an upgrade ("Subscription Plan") or use Service in any way, standard messaging rates and the terms and conditions of your carrier service agreement will apply.

The details of Plan (number of days, prices, and benefits available as part of Plan) are incorporated into this Agreement by this reference and form part of the terms of this Agreement. All terms and conditions of this Agreement shall govern Plan. After you have signed up for Plan, you may receive an SMS receipt with the details Plan, or to inquire the details of Plan contact 1-888-885-8548.

      Plan between you and Company shall begin when Company, upon your request, has provided you with access to premium service (such access may be based on data that Company deems sufficient for your identification such as your mobile telephone number and locations).
