While airlines are promoting all these new options as simple solutions for outdated contracts, it seems that mobile operators` plans could be more confusing than ever. Between prepaid, postpaid and now no contract options, more choice doesn`t really mean simplicity for consumers. Because if you are on a 24-month payment plan that requires a postal service from the carrier you are funding, is it not very different from a 2-year contract? “In the past, prepaid phone users had to sacrifice the ability to get cool devices for a cheap service.” Do you want to pay in advance for your phone service and may not have credit when you expire? Or would you rather have an infinite amount of calls, messages and data, but take the risk of being charged? Maybe your decision will be completely crazy by the nature of the plan that offers the biggest boom for your goat. On the one hand, there has been a radical change in the actual tally. Postpaid contracts can now be rolled, modified or terminated from month to month without penalty. In this sense, many prepaid plans are automatically renewable. The bill itself is an important part of the services that acts as an ambassador for the service provider and, in some cases, as evidence of the service itself. The invoice must be readable, understandable and aesthetically appealing for the subscriber to be interested enough to see details other than the amount of the invoice. If you reach the end of a postpaid contract, you actually have a SIM only plan, including for Postpaid plans, where you pay a handset. At the end of a postpaid contract in which you pay a handset, this handset is now fully paid for. Prepaid therefore involves a simple settlement of accounts. But it also meant access to a particular set of inferior devices. Postpaid plans are available on four lengths, usually in the form of contracts – a monthly automatic renewal base, 12 months, 24 months or even 36 months.
Monthly and postpaid plans of 12 months are usually SIM-only, with these 24 months or more in general, including a new handset. When it comes to 12-month postpaid plans, this is where big guys like Telstra and Optus come to play, offers great value for customers willing to commit for a whole year. Some suppliers may offer plans on other lengths, for example.B. six months, but these are generally not too frequent. You`ll also find a wider range of options for monthly plans from prepaid vendors that offer a series of plans that contain only a little data (1GB or less, in some cases) up to unlimited data. These days, Postpaid plans focus almost exclusively on unlimited data, although you can still find a few staggered options at Verizon, Sprint and AT-T. However, if you use less than 5GB of data per month, you can save on unlimited expensive postpaid plans by going to a prepaid service. (And if you exceed your data allocation, your speeds are simply reduced until the end of your monthly billing cycle – there`s no overrun fee.) First, at the beginning of each month, prepaid plans charge you a certain amount for a certain amount of conversations, texts and data.
