According to my point of view, Prepaid Connection is better than the Post Paid connection. Because if you get the Prepaid connections, you have more advantages, like we can talk as per the available balance with us. We can recharge based on the money available in hand. The Call charges may be cheaper than the post paid connections. (General point of view, not comparred with the special plans) If you have money, you can recharge and talk, if you dont have a money, you can give the missed call and you received the call from the other end, and you can contine to talk through your mobile. There is no fixed monthly rental for prepaid connections, and also in most of the prepaid connections, you will get the Full Talk time for your recharged amount. What is your opinion about this topic, please share with us Have a Good day.

Well, in your opinion, I can see that the only advantage you get, using your prepaid account is because its cheaper right? Do you always carry call card so that when you ran out of load you can immediately reload? If you don't, what if one night you suddenly found out that you have no more load and you just have to call someone trapped in an emergency situation. It's already way past midnight and you can't find any open reloading station? Well that's just one. So for me I still enjoy my postpaid. This way, you don't have to say, "hey bro, can I use your phone? I ran out of load." Lol

I agree with you,. Pre-paid Cellular Subscription is really better and you don't worry about the bills.. It is budget-friendly.. Ever since acquiring a cellular phone, I am a prepaid subscriber because it fits my budget, I can even get free load from loved-ones as well..I believe this is the best for me and my family..

I am a postpaid user, and I find it more convenient than prepaid lines. postpaid had been a great help especially for the business people, who always use mobile phones as their way of getting in touch with their clients. there's lots of types of post paid lines. there's this fix amount and consumable. just like mine, I am a sun subscriber and I do have a post paid line with the fix amount of 350/month. I do have a 250 free text from the other network. and I can also use it to call to other networks and it was only Php 5.00/call. I don't have to buy and buy cards, and it's a hassle free.

hi chennai. Hmmm.. There are actually positive and negative points for both connections. Personally, since I train quite a lot of people, I need to have a postpaid line. Definitely if I were still a student, I would opt for a prepaid connection since I would be on a very tight budget. But since I'm working, it's cheaper to get a post paid line. With the plan that I have, I can actually budget my money (I guess it's all a matter of discipline.) Plus, if there's an emergency, I do not have to worry about not having enough load. This is one of the main reasons why I got a post paid plan in the first place. With the post paid plan that I have, calls are cheaper plus I can still take advantage of the promos that pre paid connections have. I can also use unlimited texting at the same rate as well. I'm not sure of the hidden charges. As far as I know, the bills that I've gotten were correct. Although the only negative thing that I saw was the tax thing. But it's included in the plan already. Another thing that's good about post paid plans? If you stay with the company a long time, they'll give you free phones.

I personally prefer prepaid rather than postpaid. Postpaid is good if your company is paying your mobile bill. :-)

Prepaid is much better than because we can control our expenses. Postpaid has monthly bills and a lot of hidden charges. Prepaid is more practical than postpaid. Welcome to mylot..

I enjoy more prepaid and based on what I have heard on friends and family having post paid I have never have been shocked by a high bill. I pay what I can, I can change plans, and how I use my cell, with postpaid there is a contract and other hidden fees according to each cell company. To me prepaid is much better.

For me, the prepaid option is the best. There are no monthly fees and it is relatively easy to add minutes. There are no credit checks, so anyone can have a cell phone. I was so shocked when I went to get a cell phone with one of the per month companies. I was turned down because my credit score wasn't high enough. Who knew? I got a tracfone, which I really liked. I do have to say, their customer service is the worst. Long waits to speak to someone. They are all scripted. And God forbid you ask to speak to a manager. If you don't get disconnected, you are on hold again forever. I am now with boost mobile. Customer service is much better.

I prefer prepaid in cellphone. I can monitor my cellphone expense. But in internet connection, postpaid is more reliable and unlimited.In that way, postpaid becomes cheaper and practical than prepaid.

i am a postpaid subscriber for 2 years now and well i had my fair share of high bills too. but apart from that known disadvantages there are also lots of advantages that a postpaid plan can do, like i don't have to run to the nearest convenience store or reloading station to reload my phone specially when it run out of airtime while i'm on a call. with post paid i can always be sure that i can use my phone in case of emergency wherever i am, unlike when you're in emergency and you have no prepaid credits.

Hi, there I use to have a prepaid cell phone, and I didn't like it that much because I had to keep buying those minute cards at the store and each card only had about 30 minutes, and the cards cost 10 dollars and sometimes you have to pay 40 dollars in order to have enough minutes and it never seemed like I had enough talk time, at least now that Im on a plan I only have to pay once a month but sometimes even plans are to expensive, but I just god tired of keeping up with buying those minute cards, so i switched to a plan I think prepaid phones are ok but for me a cell phone plan is a little better.

hi chennai, i used to own a prepaid phone and now i own postpaid. i have the latter for almost about five months now and I don't know which one is better. i just chose to buy postpaid because that's what i can afford during that time. u know, get a plan then phone comes free. when i computed the total price that i have to pay for two years which is the contract's worth, it's cheaper even after i provided a buffer for the extra expenses i assume i would consume. i don't know for other countries or other networks but for the network i'm in the calls and texts are cheaper. thanks. have a good day, too/

I also think that prepaid is better than postpaid. One can recharge to lifelong vaildity at the rate of less than 300 rupees. The good thing is that a person can then topup according to the money he has. I think in prepaid most times we call according to the balance or amount we have and we charge with the money we have. So most times we does not need to spend money as in the postpaid having a huge bill at the end of the month. I also think it is nice to have no fixed rent for prepaid connections.

It's based on the useage of each individuals... The way I use my phone, if I went with pre-paid, it would cost me a small fortune... I have unlimited plan so there's noway that I could go over the minutes that are lotted to me... I'm paying $116 a month for my cell. phone plan & it is expensive for a cell. phone plan... But not really if you compare that to the way I use it... I used about 2700 minutes last month on voice calling portion of my bill & that averages out to little over 4 cents a minute... That's not counting all the text messaging I've used & internet access I've used for the month... I use my phone for work purpose as well so I do a lot of calling & messaging... If I had a prepaid phone, I'm pretty sure I would've spent more than $116 for last month...

even i feel that prepaid is much better than the post paid as i think its not possible to keep the track of money you have to pay or and the amount of calls that they have charged but in prepaid we can do so and we can know for each call how much money is charged and according to that we can make calls and as per our wish we can spend money on the mobile bill but it doesnt happen with the post paid and you make calls as much you want and at last we get a heavy bill to be paid and its a big shock. and there are much good facilities with the prepaid and more offers. specially for students the prepaid works very well and for bussiness sack the post paid is recommended.
