Prepaid phones are availed by purchasing the credit in advance of the service use. This credit is used to pay for mobile phone services when they are accessed or consumed. In case if there would be no credit available the service will be denied from the mobile phone network. In this case, subscribers can top up their credit through various available and acceptable modes. Prepaid phone service is generally known as ‘pay-as-you-go’ service.

Prepaid phone plans are usually cost effective. Users can have a better control on the usage of the service, as they will be notified of the cost of use after every usage. It would be easier for the user to control debt by limiting the usage. These plans would have validity and would last till the service is completely consumed or else if it is expired.

Best prepaid phones usually do not charge an early termination fee, if a user wishes to terminate the service before the actual validity. Thus it would be easy for the user to switch to another service at no additional cost.
