Recently I switched from an AT&T plan to one of their go phone plans, I get to keep my smart phone and it's way cheaper. Instead of over 100$ a month foot so many minutes and so much data I have unlimited everything for 50$. Do any of you ladies have pre paid? What are the pros and cons?

I have a TracFone and really like it. We don't use our phones much so it's perfect for us. You can sometimes get the minute cards on sale so it's about $6 a month per phone.

My kids are on a similar plan and theirs costs me $53 a month for unlimited everything. For my husband and I who are on a plan? $200 a month for 2 phones and we're constantly pushing the minutes, can't use it as a wi-fi and the data limit is 2G per phone. Totally sucks. Contract is up in June. We'll be switching as well.

I have Sprint but I'm thinking of going back to pre-paid. I had a prepaid phone for a few years but got horrible service once I moved. Hoping I can find something that works.

I don't even use a cell phone anymore. I own one. But it's basically good for nothing but an alarm clock.

I have straight talk and I don't really know of any cons. It's just as good as when I had att and way cheaper.

I have t-mobile prepaid for $30 a month, unlimited data and text and 100 mins,4g, I downloaded an internet phone on it and use the internet phone fr calls so I  rarely use all of the 100 mins, works for me. I was with At&t before and this is way cheaper and I have 4g now not 3g.
