How is prepaid different from postpaid


    I want to compare prepaid vs postpaid plans.I may already be seeing what I want to know, but I can't tell prepaid from postpaid based on the plan names. Usually I can find anything I want online but I feel stupid on cell phone sites.


    Is postpaid supposed to be a better deal? If so, what features make it better? For the sake of discussion, I've been on the $45/month prepaid plan for around 3 years. (Not interested in Pay/Go)

        For me I went into the PAYG $3 a month due to eye problems. I don't make a lot of calls. I use my phone mainly as a "jukebox". I don't use my 30 minutes for the month. Perhaps if you live close to a corporate T-Mobile store they should be able to answer your question. Maybe someone who has a post-paid account might steeer you to the right plan.
