Pre Paid plans are where you pay in advance for the services – calls, texts, mobile data and extras – you want to use for the next billing cycle (typically 28-30 days). Once you’ve used up your inclusions or the cycle is finished, you will need to recharge your device. Some plans also come with the option of auto-recharge once you’ve used up your allowance or at the start of the next billing cycle.
This type of plan varies from postpaid where you pay later – usually at the end of the month. And these days these are prepaid plans offering very good value for money, often starting at as little as $10 per month.
Depending on your needs Pre Paid plans can offer a host of advantages – such as flexibility and personal control over costs. They are also easier to exit that postpaid plans. In addition, they could allow you to try out different plans at no extra cost if you want to find the one that suits you best.
