No Contract Smartphones, Saving Money with Prepaid Smartphones

No contract smartphones, otherwise known as prepaid smartphones are a great way to get all the benefits from teh wireless cellphone carriers without the hassles of contracts and early termination fees.

Are you tired of being told you can have a new smartphone for the great price of $$$ as long as you commit to signing a two year contract. Where you're also told if you want to break your contract there will be an early termination fee which in many cases is in excess of $300.

How would you like to have a no contract smartphone allowing you to switch carriers without a penalty?

This is possible when you ditch the postpaid wireless contracts and move to a prepaid smartphone. Here is a secret that the wireless carriers do not want you to know...

You can switch to a no contract smartphone with basically all of the major wireless carriers including:

  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • T-Mobile
  • Verizon Wireless

This means you will get all the benefits of their infrastructure without the hassle of a contract and early termination fees. Also in many cases you will pay a flat monthly rate that includes any taxes.

No Contract Smartphone Features

Let me be clear in saying no contract smartphones have come along way nowadays and are not for people who have bad credit and can't get a postpaid cellphone account.

Prepaid smartphones are for consumers who want:

  • Options
  • Pay a set price
  • Switch phones anytime, anywhere
  • Like to keep their hard earned money

If you can identify with any of the above then I strongly encourage you to consider a prepaid smartphone.

With a no contract smartphone you can get the cellphone minutes that suit your needs. Have the amount of textings/sms that you want. Have a data plan that gives you access to email and the internet.

Now you may think this is going to cost a bundle but in fact it is going to be cheaper than what you're paying right now.

With many of the no contract smartphone plans you can get unlimited calling, unlimited text messaging, and anywhere from 100MB to 4GB of data usage for prices ranging anywhere from $50 to $100 per month (yes this includes all taxes and fees too)! Trying beating these prices with a postpaid wireless plan and I bet you it will be very hard to do.

Who Offers No Contract Smartphones

Guess what all of the major wireless cellphone carriers offer no contract smartphones.

AT&T: offers prepaid smartphones known as, "GoPhone." You'll still be connected to their network (if that's even a selling point for you) to derive all of the benefits from "America's largest network."

Sprint: offers their no contract smartphones through two companies 1. Boost Mobile and 2. Virgin Mobile. Both companies use the Sprint network.

T-Mobile: offers the "No Annual Contract" selection of prepaid smartphones.

Verizon Wireless: offers prepaid smartphones to suit a number of your needs, but to be honest you'll be gouged by their prices which may be slightly higher than warranted.

Prepaid Carriers: then you have the companies that exist only for prepaid or no contract smartphones and they include:

  • Cricket
  • MetroPCS
  • U.S. Cellular
  • Walmart

Now this list doesn't include every prepaid offering because in today's day and age they are popping up like wildflowers, but this does cover the top players where you will want to start.

Two Main Types of Prepaid Available

So I've been using prepaid and no contract interchangeably throughout this page and I know some of you are asking is there a difference and if so, what is the difference?

Well to be frank there is not a difference but there are some key takeways in how you can go about paying for your prepaid wireless service.

Monthly: some people prefer to purchase a prepaid plan per month which they can set to a recurring basis to make things easy. Obviously there is no contract involved so you can cancel your service whenever you want.

Daily: others prefer to only pay when they use their smartphone. Typically this means if you use your phone on a particular day you will be charge for the texts, voice minutes or data used and if you don't use your phone you have no charges.

As you can see it is very easy to find a no contract smartphone plan that can suit any of your needs. You have options to purchase just what you'll be using in the form of loading "credits" to your account but if this is too much work I would say make life easier and get the monthly prepaid plans.

At any rate I do not see how you can go wrong when you have a prepaid wireless account.
