Please take a moment to understand one common misconception regarding Prepaid Wireless Refills. Your cell phone is "profiled" to work with a specific wireless carrier such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc. Only products offered by that carrier will work on your phone. Furthermore, some wireless carriers offer multiple Prepaid Wireless Refills.
Prepaid wireless is an alternative to a traditional monthly cell-phone plan (covered in our report on cell-phone plans ). Prepaid cell phones (also called pay-as-you-go) are a good option for people who don't use cell phones that often or those who need a cell phone only for emergency situations.
If you are trying to decide between a regular monthly cell-phone service and a pay-as-you-go plan, you need to do some careful math, and reviews say prepaid wireless may end up costing more than a monthly plan if you don't watch your usage. Experts say that choosing the most cost-effective pay-as-you-go plan means estimating your minute usage, analyzing the degree to which you will travel out of the coverage area (since roaming may cost extra), estimating the amount of text messaging and other extras you will use, and understanding how the plan charges for its various features. Finally, phones with prepaid plans sometimes cost more, since companies tend to subsidize phones for monthly service but not for prepaid cell-phone plans.
But for a lot of people, the benefits of prepaid wireless can outweigh the downsides. There's no monthly bill, so it's easier to control costs. Any taxes and fees are included in the price of prepaid wireless plans, so there are no surprises. No one will check your credit, and if you don't want to continue with your prepaid wireless plan, you just stop buying minutes.
