Should I buy a prepaid phone?

Well, to answer this question, you have to be honest with your needs. The main advantage of the prepaid offers is the ability to simply stop paying at any time. A good example is if you cannot commit to a contract for at least three years. Since most carriers now require you to be tied to them for a 36-month contract when you buy a new device, you might find yourself in the awkward position of having to pay for something you can’t or don’t want to use.

So by investing in a prepaid phone you can avoid this obligation for as long as you want, and for the price, the benefits are not enough:
