Yes, My card is Prepaid Card, Since i dont have much usages i have selected the Life time card.. for which i have to recharge a minimum amount of recharge once in a six months period.. then my validity will continue for the stipulated period.. As for as the post paid connection is concern, whether we are using or not, we have to pay the rental and the respected the Tax portions.. So, based on the usages, we have to choose the Connections, whether it is prepaid or post paid.. As for as my husband is concern, he is using the Post paid connection, which has been provided by his company, they have lots of benefits by using the post paid connections, since its a corporate connection, They have been connected under the plan of (CUG-Closed User Group) they can talk to the entire group at free of cost at any time. Like that lots more benefits over there.. So what type of connections do you have...? Give me your opitions about the Prepaid and the Post paid connections..

When i got my 1st cell phone, i was using a prepaid card as i think that i wun be using that much.. I was right for the 1st few days, but within a month when i got familiarised with how the phone and card really works, i started to take for granted and i ended up with heavy usage, having to top up my card every few days with at least $20-$30 of value each time.. And so by the end of the month, i'm using almost $200-$300 of value.. hehe =D PLus that time i was not even working!! After that lesson, i decided to change over to post paid as it's cheaper with free SMS and free calls too.. When it comes to end of the month and i compare between the 2, i found that post paid suits me more ^_^ hehe

I use postpaid now. It's so much easier to budget my phone bill this way. Even though I don';t enjoy the benefits of being rewarded for my loyalty to the company, I find that this works best for me. Not only do I stick to a budget, I also won't be charged extra and unnecessary fees.

i am using a prepaid connection because it's cheaper. From midnight to eight o'clock the following morning, it's already free. I usually connect the internet at around four o'clock in the morning and end up at seven except now.

I also have a prepaid connection with lifetime... I dont call much hence i had opted for lifetime validity... I reacharge about Rs 50 monthly... thats enough for me... Call rates are high for lifetime customers than normal customers.... But then that dosent affect me much... All of my friends except one have Prepaid connection....

I have a postpaid connection.but still i speak very less on the phone.prepaid is better tn terms of money you have no balance you cannot make calls.The advantage of postpaid you can speak as much as you like and then pay monthly bills.

i use the prepaid connection. but its not lifetime. i think there the call charges are very much. i use the pack mainly for 3 months or 1 yr validity. i also use cell very less. so it does not need to be top up very often.i have also not taken the post paid as we need to pay the rental we use it or not.

My outgoing calls are very very limited, so, i went for a life card.

I use prepaid card only. I'm more involved in texting messages to my friends than making calls. So, I choose a prepaid connection that provides me with unlimited free text sms. I dont think any service provider gives this type of offer in post-paid connection in my place.

I am using Prepaid connection right now and I have a lifetime validity which means I have to recharge my phone once in a year. I like this connection because there is no head ache of recharging it for validity every month. But before this I was using Post paid connection and I use to get a huge amount of bill at the end of the month and then I use to cry at the end of the month looking at the bill. My usage was a lot at that time. I used this post paid connection for about two years and later on I shifted to prepaid connection and my bills are controlled now and I am happy about it.There are plus and minus point for both prepaid and postpaid connection. In prepaid you don't have to bother that much about the bill and just recharge your phone whenever you want to but minus point for this connection can be that sometimes you might need to call urgently but you find out that you have no money while for post paid the problem is that you never can control over your calls and ending up with a huge bill.

prepaid is best - prepaid holds good
Personally i hate this postpaid because whichever button u press your charged for it! yes messages are charged call rates are high, and the mobile to landline calls are high i really hate them, they even charge us more my dad was having post paid connection i dont know how he had made such a huge amount of rs.2000 as his monthly bill, i always use prepaid connection if i want to make a call ill top up for rs.10:) hee hee and use it as im in 1 year validity period i will only get less amount due to activation fee/processing fee and taxes! that is okie rather than using this post paid and my guy is in u.s if i use prepaid i need to have some certain amount to call him back but in prepaid it has no deposit to be made so i enojoy my prepaid card and in my plan there is no daily rental but messages rates are too high though!

i am using a post paid connection. in fact i've always been on a post paid plan. i've had a mobile phone way before prepaid connections were introduced in my country. i didn't find it necessary to change as i use my mobile daily. it's more convenient to have to deal with one bill at the end of the month. it's also more convenient as i won't run out of credits in the middle of a conversation. i think i'll need to top up my card pretty often given my usage. it'll be cheaper to just use a post paid connection. cheers ;p

Speak-Out - Pay As You Go
I am quite new here in Canada so I opted to get a Pre-paid SIM. They call it "Pay as you Go". But you have to buy it together with a cheap handset. I got one which was provided sold by 7-11 stores which is branded speak-out phones. There are a lot of plans here but it is a bit tricky compared to plans in my country of origin (Philippines). There are a lot of hidden charges. FYI, you can't really save if you use pre-paid plans here as you are also charged when you receive a call.

I'm using post paid currently. Actually the rate in post paid is lower. I'm choosing post paid so that when i call back to home and chat with my family, wouldn't be too expensive. It's more worth to use post paid if always make calls.

I use prepaid account. The reason for this choice is simple, it's easier to control one's expence on calls. I'm not a heavy user anyway and I rarely make "frivolous" calls that won't benefit me. I mean I don't consider making calls just to "gist" a wise thing to do. Prepaid account is suitable for people who make few calls every month. It's equally suitable for people who find it difficult to resist the temptation of calling once they have credit in their phone. Prepaid account is equally suitable for persons with low income and those who have other line(s) to support their mobile line. Postpaid account is suitable for those who are heavy users and that gives them better value for money. It may be suitable for those who join the connection courtesy their organizations.

I am a prepaid user but i have lots of use like i have internet connection unlimited only rs.20 daily with good speed and it is also cheaper than postpaid connection. lots of schemes like sms,std schemes are also beneficial for me in postpaid

no no, this is not like that, u will be deducted an amount at the time of recharging it self, if you recharge for Rs.300/- then u will get a talk time of Rs.150 only appxly, and also u r loosing money when u made a call from your prepaid mobile, because the call rates is too high comapared to post paid connections, so preferable go for a post paid connection, & today we have lot of options in post even u get a low rent, cug minutes, free talk time etc etc., go for a prepaid if u really dont want to talk, but simply u receive calls for 13 years atleast. reg, ramesh s
