Do you prefer a phone contract plan or one that is prepaid monthly?
We are looking for the best phone plans without contracts. There are some attractive ones out there, but there is a buy out price if you break it within the two year plan. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which one they prefer and why?
i think prepaid monthly plan is better,it can save your money,and also alarm you when you get out of budget.
It depends on what your usage will be. Earlier the best option was to go for the Prepaid ones, but now Phone companies have realized that they are losing a lot of revenue that way. To earn more they have made contracts more lucrative. You can choose a plan that is best suited to your usage. If there are none then opt for prepaid else contract ones aren't that bad too.
But again you need to be sure of what you need the most and choose accordingly. If you are not sure then until then you can go for the prepaid one that is a safe bet. Once you know your usage then you can opt for the best available contract and keep your bill to the minimum.
I dislike the prepaid monthly plans, however, I think long gone are the days when I could simply pay per month. With the prepaid plans, if you forget to pay on time the phone company disconnects your phone and this is awful. Because, nowadays they'll probably punish you with a stiff fee to reconnect.
I hate that so many services are now requiring people to sign two year contracts and making you pay if you change to another provider within that time. I can understand why they do it, but it's still stupid. That said, I moved from Verizon to Cricket. Cricket seems to have lower costs for more service. I don't have a smart phone so my monthly fee is one of their lowest packages and it gives me unlimited talk and text. The contract is month to month. As long as you pay, you have service. If you decide to change providers, there's no extra charge. I did everything via computer and they automatically bill my credit card but I think you can also request a paper bill and pay by check. Unfortunately, they do add a small fee for using a check.
I guess I will have to go with a phone contract because I've always had one and have never tried the prepaid monthly ones.
