If you only need a basic phone, only need one for a short time, or simply don't want a contract, then Prepaid is for you. Put as much or as little as you want, (as long as it meets the minimum), towards your account and you only get charged for the talk, text and data you actually use. No extra charges, just your monthly minimum, any extra options you select, and the time and data you decide to use. You'll never be charged extra. Safe and Simple.
