Re: problem of group video call

It sounds to me like you may have to put a credit card on file to place the order.   When you sign up for any trial, a form of payment is probably required for 2 reasons:

 

1.  To set you up for a permanent subscription should you chose to continue beyond the 30 days.

2.  To ensure that the free 30-day trial isn't free for you every month if you decide to cancel and sign up a 2nd time (the next month, etc.)

 

If you want to ensure you don't get billed after 30 days then you would have to cancel the subscription.  I believe you can cancel the subscription nearly as soon as you sign up and you will still get your 30 days, it just won't renew.

...then I don't see how you can trial a service.  Especially one you could never pay for if you decided you liked it.  Whether I fully agree with the terms or not the majority of "free trials"  (legitimate or otherwise) all require a form of payment to avoid abuse of the trial and to pre-set you up if you decide to keep it.
