Cellular Plans

There are several types of cellular plans out there, prepaid and postpaid. If you hate contracts and monthly bills, and if you are the budget conscious type, go for prepaid. This type of subscription gives you the freedom to know exactly how much you spend. You control how much prepaid credits or load you get. This is a good plan for those who have no idea on how many minutes they spend or shall we say occasional users. No need to sign-up for a contract and there are no lock-in periods. Another thing is that you can easily change your number since prepaid SIM cards are easy to find and very affordable. You also need not to worry about over spending.

However, there are also advantages if you get postpaid plans. Postpaid plans offer cheaper call rates than prepaid, they also give you free minutes every billing cycle. On top of that, you only pay once a month depending on your plan choice. They also have credit limits that let you call and text on top of you service fee. This is good for those emergency situations when you need to call for longer periods. Another good thing about postpaid is they offer discounted handsets. You can even change your handset model every year if you want to.

Now if you already know what to choose between prepaid and postpaid, ask yourself, what type of subscriber you are?

If you are a talk type person, you may choose a plan that have more free airtime minutes. Some companies like Globe and Smart offer consumable plans that lets you spend your monthly service fee the way you want it. There is also what they call Group Plans which offer a discounted monthly service fee and a special call circle rate. If you are a text addict, you can take advantage of unlimited text offers. Some providers give unlimited text for as low as 20 Pesos. There is also call and text combo offers for prepaid subscribers.

Lastly, consider your location, there are areas where certain providers have poor reception. It’s useless having a cheap cellular plan but always having to get out to make your calls.

  1. I have a SMART plan – never tried Globe yet, but I am considering SUN Cellular, I can see they have better call and text promos both on Prepaid and Postpaid.
