What is great about prepaid phone plans?

  • Not tied down to a contract

Arguably, the best part of prepaid phone plans is the flexibility they offer by not being tied down to a contract. This can be very helpful to customers who travel a lot. Also, since you are paying in advance for the month of service, you won’t be able to go over your limit and end up paying extra fees.

  • Great option for a work-only phone

One case where going prepaid is useful, for example, is for customers who already have a personal line and would like a second phone just for work. If they already have a personal phone with all the bells and whistles, an additional prepaid phone plan might be just what they need to get work done without paying extra for features they don’t need. Also, it might give them more peace of mind when giving out their phone number during networking events.

  • No credit check required

Another great thing about prepaid phone plans is that they don’t require a credit check since you pay in advance. This makes it an excellent option for customers who don’t have great credit at the moment or don’t want to ding their score with a credit check.

  • Great option for kids phone

Lastly, many customers love getting prepaid plans for their kids. Since it’s prepaid, there’s no way to go over the limits and pay extra fees. Prepaid plans and phones are also more cost effective which makes it a great option for a kid’s first phone.
