Prepaid or No-Contract – what’s the difference?
They might seem similar, but prepaid and no-contract plans are not the same. With a prepaid plan, you’ll pay up front for a top-up card that gives you a certain number of minutes. These usually expire within 3-12 months after activation. You will never
get a bill. Prepaid plans are great if you don’t use much data on your phone, or if you use your phone only in emergencies.
No-contract plans still have a monthly bill, but these plans generally offer better options for access to unlimited talk, text, and data. For both types of plans, you can generally bring your own phone. If you want to buy
a phone, you’ll need to pay for it all up front, and you might not have access to the best selection of new model phones.
