Upon release what will happen to any money still on my phone account? Do you forfeit it or do they give it back?

I read elsewhere that they mail you a check when you close your account. I plan on spending mine down :) 

Those last few days because he will be going stir crazy from being so close and out of food in his box, we are going to load him up on visits. So that should make it easier to spend the phone down and keep it down until he comes home.
He's home!

We plan on spending ours too. I can't ever get it right on the penny, it's not that I'm worried about the dollar and change that may be left over I was more or less just curious if they credit your card back with it or if they just keep it (that wouldn't surprise me!).
Aw thanks stayintrue! You're so sweet! I'm SO excited, but we're both getting nervous, too. Mostly a good nervous, though!
