i am currently using a prepaid sim card, with prepaid there are a lot of advantages, as i can keep track of all the calls and the costs too. in my opinion postpaids are for people who are constantly in touch with others through phone and for people who don't have to worry about costs. Thank you.

i think prepaid is the best since you can limit your usage on texting and calling. while in postpaid, you are tempted to call and text a lot of times and then in times of billing you will just get shock of the bill that you've received.

I think Prepaid would be the best choice because using it you will have a control on your phone calls and it can help you same money. If you're using postpaid you will be making a lot of calls as you don't need to worry about recharging. To solve the emergency problem. Always keep an extra recharge code saved in your mobile phone.

PostPaid vs PrePaid.... They have their pluses and minuses. PostPaid paid have the advantage that you won't ever have a zero balance that can make you unable to call otherwise. Also rates of postpaid are a bit cheaper. PrePaid on the other hand has an advantage that you won't be able to spend more than what is in your phone. :D

I guess both have pros & cons about them. I have post paid service for my cell phone. Post paid service tend to be cheaper per minute if you use the phone a lot. In my case, I use my phone somehwere between 2,500 - 3,000 minutes per month. Most of the pre-paid service comes out to about 10 cents per minute. I'd be paying somewhere between $250 - $300 per month. That's not counting text messages. I'm now paying around $70/month for unlimited calling & messages. Far from $300/month. But then there are people who barely use cell phone. My mother uses pre-paid phone & she pays about $40 for every 3 month or so. It has to do with individual's need.

I would rather have postpaid, as I wouldn't like the idea of getting more minutes. I have nine set up enough eminutes that I don't run out, ever and it is the best way to go for me. It is the only phone I have and use so I need one that will do what I need it to, and mine does. I do text with mine some too, as my daughter will text me, when she isn't to busy. I can use mine browsing the internet, watch youtube videos, take pictures and other features. I really like my phone, even though I am limited to what I can do on it, but that is okay, as I do what I need to do and nothing more. Take care, and happy mylotting.
