Re: I'll stick with postpaid

Add another annoyance with prepaid... The phones typically contains software that will constantly pester you about your balance. After every phone call, text message, and web access the phone will pop up with a message telling you your current balance that has too be dismissed before you can continue, even when you've got a thousand minutes and text messages left.

That's not the phone, that's the carrier. And that's a holdover (and a good idea actually) from POSTPAID stickershock rules. Postpaid plans have the same issues, now that you're no longer on all-you-can-eat Data plans.

Another nice feature of prepaid - if I want a smartphone without a data plan, I can have a smartphone without a data plan and not be forced to pay an additional $25/month just for the "privilege" of using a smartphone.
