Prepaid or Postpaid, which is the best for value and Why?
18 Mar 08
In my country, prepaid offer best value for money for those who prefer to send text messages and postpaid for those making regular call. the charges for one text messages is 1 cent and therefore it is considered cheap unlike using postpais is about 6 - 15 cent depending on the network provider.

I like prepaid because I rarely use my phone and it is the cheapest plan for me. I only have to pay a minimum of $10 every three months if I don't use it all that much. The only disadvantages I have found is that I can't subscribe to text messaging services, though I can receive text messages and pictures. I just can't subscribed to news messages, etc on my phone nor can I access the internet. But, for someone who doesn't use a cellphone all that much, it's a great deal.

Pre paid plans are good if youe usage is limited. If you find your self too much attached to your cell phone, a post paid plan would be better. Pre paid plans are popular among teenagers as they have limited pocket money. I will explain my experience. I used to spend around Rs.400 a moth on my pre paid connection which roseup to around Rs 700 a month when I moved to post paid. My phone bill expenditure rose up to 170% once I moved up towards post paid plan. The fact is that call rates are cheap with post paid, and this makes us use it a looooooooot! The benefits with post paid is that we never run out of balance and validity period of our connection.

I've used both of them prepaid and postpaid but now as I have not much usage of phone I use prepaid package even most of the citizen using prepaid because it is easy to use. Anyhow, prepaid is better as compare to postpaid because as I say almost every citizen is using prepaid therefore the company introduce a new package every day of prepaid while postpaid does not have many packages as compare to prepaid. Therefore I will go with prepaid!
