I think many poeple prefer to have pre paid cell phone because we know what we have and what we are spending. In my opinion Post paid are for those who have a more air time and for using long distance calls and for business class people.

I use a prepaid. i am in lifetime validity of incoming i took it last yr n thn whenever want i can recharge accordingly for talking.... there are lots of schemes for that n for msgs, i can switch from one plan to another there are no boundation as such, it can be recharged from my place too n i find it very cheap. one thing is u will get a message after each call about your balance left. I also used a postpaid once. But i cannot control the outgoing calls during that time, as i do now with prepaid.

Prepaid is the way I buy minutes for my mobile as well. It's easier that way. I'm not spending for minutes I won't be using, and to be honest, I rarely use my phone. It's mostly just for phoning for delivery or for my mom's prescriptions. That and an emergency if one comes along, as well!

I dont used postpaid eversince, i just go on prepaid card. The reason why i used prepaid is that i dont use my mobile phone that much, i dont call always i just use it to text friends and families. So using postpaid is not really applicable for me. And now sometimes we are communicating through net so it makes me use my mobile phone not often. Now, in a month i just make 30-100 pesos or about $2 for my mobile load. So postpaid is really a big no for me =)

I have been using cell phone for the last four years. I also went for prepaid connections. I don't want to use post paid because I won't be able to track my charges. If I use a post paid connection, I will end up in making lots of calls and thereby loosing a lot of money. Also, prepaid connections has a lot of offers in my country. So, I always go for prepaid. I don't think I will ever change to post paid. Many of my friends are using post paid connections. One reaason they are saying is 'if you want to make an urgent call and if you don't have money in your prepaid accont, it will create a big issue'. I think it is the only reasont to go for post paid.

Hello, At the moment I use Prepaid, mainly because I don't really use my phone that often. If I would use my phone more often, I could have gotten a plan, because it is only worth it if you talk a lot and text a lot. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

I sue postpaid as it is easier for me. I use my phone everyday, and prepaid would get to expensive. My baskic bill is $89.99 before takxes, and the internet is $10 of that amount. I fel that it is't all that expensive so I decided to get it. The last time I had the internte it was more than that a month, and I decided that was to much. I have 900 minutes and I don't use them all, but I use about half of them every month. I leave it that many, as it is $0.40 a minute. That is very expensive so I definitely won't go over my minutes. I have always used postpaid phones, so I will just stick with them. Have a great day, and happy mylotting.

I always prefer a Prepaid account for my mobile phone otherwise I don't know what my monthly bill will reach to. In prepaid account I get to know my balance remaining and can scheduled my usage accordingly to atleast last for the month. Post paid accounts have no limits and give you full independence to make calls and what not with your mobile. But, the bubble bursts when the bill comes. So it's play safe and Prepaid all the time.

I've tried postpaid subscription before but I got a higher bill back in college. lol So after being locked up with the telco, i transferred to prepaid subscription since I do rarely use my cellphone now because I'm always online and i just use my Voip to call worldwide. =)

I use post paid & my bill is never higher than $121/month. Cell phone is only phone I use & I have unlimited everything. I have my work tied into my cell phone as well so I usually go through somewhere between 2500 - 3000 minutes a month. If I used prepaid phone, I couldn't afford it.
