The Advantages Of Pre Paid Cell Phone

Are you looking for an alternative cell phone plan? Whether it’s for your working schedule, or just trying to get an affordable cell phone plan, consider this offer which you can find in most areas.

Whenever I find myself in a new city or country, working from there for an indeterminate length of time, I often trade my usual cell phone number for a Pre Paid Cell Phone. I have many reasons for these, but the over riding factor is that I find Pre Paid cell phones to be cheaper and more convenient in the short term.

The nature of my job is such that it takes me to several parts of the country. And I remain in some cities for periods ranging from a few days to several weeks. Initially, I used to carry out my communication with the headquarters and the branch offices through my regular cell phone. But the long distance calls were expensive, and the roaming charges needlessly so. Which is why, upon discussion with the finance guys, I decided to go in for a Pre Paid cell phone.

I find Pre Paid cell phones to be extremely convenient. For one thing, they are literally ready to go from the moment I buy them. I can drop by at any of the dealerships of the numerous cell phone companies, check the charges to find which are the best, and just buy one off the shelf.

It takes little more than a valid drivers license to buy a Pre Paid cell phone in most states and countries. And the phones are ready to go from the very moment I switch them on. I quickly send out a message to the headquarters informing them of my new number and get on with my works.

The Pre Paid cell phone makes it easy for me to keep in touch with my local contacts. They no longer have to use costly air-time to get in touch with me and I am a locally available resource to them. For the headquarters, as their calls to me are more infrequent, the cost difference works in their favor. Next, I don’t have to pay monthly subscription charges on a Pre Paid cell phone unlike the one I pays on my regular cell phone.

So the value of my Pre Paid cell phone is almost all of what I paid for it. No additional fees. No unused balances. Finally, I can limit the usage of my Pre Paid cell phone to get the most from it. If I know I am going to be in a city for a short duration, I can load my Pre Paid cell phone with lesser amounts. If I know I am going to be there for a longer duration, I put in more money.

There are some disadvantages to a Pre Paid cell phone too. They are for instance, not very affordable for extended periods of time. And, being Pre Paid, the charges per minute are much higher than on long term plans. But if used right with care, you can get a lot more from your Pre Paid cell phone than a regular connection. Trust me. I have been doing it for a couple of years now.
