I will definitely choose prepaid for my cellphone. I've been using prepaid since I got my first cellphone. Prepaid is much better if we don't want to worry for our cellphone monthly bill. With prepaid we can control our load expenses. With my internet connection I used postpaid. Have a nice day..

I use prepaid services for my cellphone,telephone and Internet. Being a student myself, i prefer prepaid because i may not at times be able to pay for a postpaid connection.

Hi there. I use prepaid for my cell phone and post paid for our landline, cable and internet connections. I find that post paid plan are fine as long as they have a fixed rate (e.g. our cable and internet connections) or are used in a limited manner (e.g. we rarely use our landline for long-distance calls and calls to cell phones). Of course, the only reason I continue to use prepaid for my cell phone is because it's such a hassle to apply for a cell phone line and I don't really want to be bothered by the entire process. Of course, prepaid plans are handy if you want to control your expenses and I experienced using prepaid internet cards before we finally switched to broadband.

I also use prepaid for my cellphones. I used to have postpaid but I hate the hassle of going waiting for the bill and then paying. It's better to have it post paid so that I am not thinking of any addtional bills to pay at the end of each month. For Internet connection, I have no choice but to use a postpaid though.

For my mobile phone I use prepaid account, it is easier to manage a prepaid account in mobile phones. I have used postpaid before but I had a hard time managing my expenses. i have the tendency to call more often because it is post paid, in other words I exploited the use of my post paid and call often thus it result to higher bills. I prefer prepaid because you have the power to control it. They say that for some it is more convenient to use post paid specially if they are always on the call and that they spend more with prepaid, for me it is not really the case. As for internet connection and land line phone I have a postpaid. Now with this is more practical to have a post paid plan, in post paid plan your time is unlimited (which is not the case with post paid mobile phones) and if you will use prepaid in internet connection it is usually more expensive because it has slower connection.

Hi dong, I'm using prepaid for mobile phone and I think I'm not allowed to have postpaid here, because I'm not a citizen here. But I want to be in prepaid anyway! Internet is different because its connected at my husband office and I guess its postpaid and yes I'm very comfortable with both. Thanks!

I feel good when and only I had a prepaid connections. If we had a postpaid connection, someone may use it for unwanted things and will make you a bill of lot. But when in the case of prepaid, even the chance is same but there is a limit on bill which postpaid don't have.

i am using postpaid in my internet connection since i really need to be online everyday, not unlike cellphones and telephones (both of them are prepaid). i am thinking of upgrading my mobile phone to postpaid but i don't know if that will be a good decision. where would i possibly use all the free txt messages and free call services included in the plan when i only call my mom and a couple of friends. though subscribing to postpaid plans comes with a free mobile phone.

When i was in my country i felt comfortable with the prepaid because i don't have to worry for my monthly bills.During my first month here in the US i was using prepaid card for my cellphone but i found it very expensive than the postpaid so since then we have a family postpaid plan.
