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?

 In my opinion the virgin mobile prepaid plans and phones are great. I also use their internet hotspot service. Up to 4 devices can connect wireless at the same time.

I had AT&T and paid through the nose for it.  It was awful.  We switched to StraightTalk and I have 3 phones on unlimited plans for what it cost me at AT&T for 2 phones and we had to watch our limits.  I love it and won't ever got back to AT&T again.

I'm on a family plan w/ Verizon w/ my mom & brother, so I don't pay the bill. We've had it forever. I had a pre-paid Straight Talk phone w/ a Samsung Precedent, but some of the "unlimited" features stopped working for my account, out of the blue, for no reason. For example, I could not send pic messages - I could only receive them. I would get txts from the company saying that I needed to call some 1-800 # before a certain date to reactivate my pic messaging. It was a lot of BS! I was on the phone w/ diff. customer service people, non of whom knew wtf I was talking about or how to fix it. It was the most idiotic thing! I wish I did not waste my money on that crap! So I ended up getting a Samsung Galaxy lll on my Verizon account & now I'm happy again.

I have pre paid... the pro: far cheaper! the con: you cant be even 24 hours late on the payment or they shut it off.. with a contract phone there is more leeway in case when needed :)

We were gonna go prepaid, but Tmobile gave us unlimited everything including uncapped 4g for 2 years $50 a phone plus brand new phones, so we stayed .
