If you really want to budget your money on how much you want to spend on your telephone bills, I think it is best to use the prepaid connection. However, there are plans available in a post-paid subscription that would suit your preferences. You better check out your service provider if you have one on your mind to discuss the plans available for you. Some companies offer a retention gift for subscribing to them like free cellphones you can use on top of the one you are using. The only cons I can see with post-paid subscription, is if you do not have self-control, you may pay more than you can afford to pay for your telephone bills.

I used to be a prepaid subscriber but now I've switched to a postpaid one. With a postpaid account, you get a bill with a detailed description of your usage. So you can really monitor your usage and can complain if there be any mistakes in charging. Prepaid in a way has those hidden charges since there's no way you can keep track of all your usage. There was this one time when my prepaid balance changed while I was asleep and my phone was left unused. I was robbed in my sleep, so to speak.

I prefer postpaid, they have better deals like the talk caps... prepaid credit generally expires in 30days so it's basicly the same as paying a monthly bill anyway. Also you don't have to worry about running out of credit and not being able to make calls...

According to Remo, prepaid connection is best suitable to any one. Postpaid is to useful for organisation and to who are using in a large amount of calls. We can talk within a certain limit. If we take postpaid connection then, it will be charging large amount. So it it better to choose prepaid.

If you have fixed income and often make or need connection everyday,i prefer to post paid with limitation billing,so you can control your billing.

I have been an T-Mobile customer for over 5 years. Once you get a phone and sign an agreement, you are locked into a 2 year contract. And you can't get another phone unless you buy the insurance and have something wrong with your phone. But if after a year your phone is not working completely right, and you want a new phone, you have to STILL pay full price because your contract is not up. I have excellant credit with this company and now they are being merged with AT&T. Nothing wrong except I have been doing researching showing I can go through a prepaid plan and spend less monthly on unlimited everything for 45 to 50 a month instead of 79.99 a month plus all the little taxes and phone charges. Be very careful going into these plans You get grabbed in with all the new phones out latest technology, and when you get your phone bill, WHAM you are sucked in. I pay 140.00 a month for my son and I I could be saving 40.00 to 50.00 a month if we just get our own plan and then if we want to ever change phones within that company you just look at them and get a different one to meet your needs. Good luck be careful. Contracts grab you in and then you can't get out without paying a contract fee of 200.00 I plan to get out from under mine and go cheaper.
