i tried postpaid plan. i used it within two years because i signed a contract of the network provider. the advantage of it, usable anytime but when look into your bill wow it's really a big money you spent on it most of it not related to business. so i stop post paid and used prepaid, now i can control my load usage. i am not discouraging to members uses postpaid because it depends upon the situation and the nature of your usage.

Ever since, my husband and I are into postpaid plan. I don't mind using a prepaid but it's my husband who insist on having a plan. Unlike before, the postpaid plans come with a free phone kit unlike the prepaid, wherein you need to provide yourself with a unit. Though it has a holding period of two years, I think it is worth it because after that, the unit is yours already. You can place a call and never runs out of load. Different service providers or networks offers different plans to subscribers for as low as Php 300. So it's up to you to choose which one is best. So far, my bills never go out of the plan too much. I know my limit and I stick to it.

not really though, i love postpaid connection and i think it gives me a freedom to call to anyone with a very high limit of talktime as compared to that prepaid plan, in which we just looking for the connection validity and talktime...lol Have Fun!!!

I use prepaid plan because I don't really consume all the balance I have since I only use it if it is important for me to send message or calling someone. Also, I can control my load usage as well and use it appropriately as possible hehe.

When you use postpaid its very hard for you to control your usage, so you will end paying a huge amount of bills every month. That is why I prefer prepaid, when youre out of load, theres no need to reload if you dont have important calls to do. And for emergency purposes you can always load as low as 10 pesos to 50 pesos.

I have post paid plan & I personally won't use prepaid plan... I use too much of cell. phone to go with prepaid... Per minute if you average out the usage comes out to be a lot cheaper for me if I go with post paid... I have unlimited voice calling plan for $100 & unlimited blackberry add on plan for $20 more... Past few month I had this blackberry phone, least I've used my phone is about 1500 minutes... That's not counting text messaging, picture messaging, emails & internet access... If I've used prepaid with that type of usage, I would've paid a lot more than what I'm paying now... I also get a discount from where I work so my bill every moth comes out to about $116 a month with taxes & fees... Here in U.S., just about every cell. phone carrier offers unlimited plan now... Depends on your usage habit, it might be cheaper to go with that plan & never having to worry about overages...

I would love to have the post paid plan but I do not think I could afford to be stuck in a contract and pay that high bill every month. I like the prepaid because I know how much I will have to spend and I can use it or not use it and not be stuck in a contract, whether I use it or not.
