What are legitimate uses for a prepaid cell phone service?

I mean as an alternative to a contract.


Answer by  lcapurro812 (237)

Legitimate uses of this service depend on an individual's lifestyle. For people who do not use a cell phone frequently prepaid service is much more economical.

Usually, this is a question of credit. People with bad credit can't get approval for a contract without a large up front deposit, so they use a prepaid phone.

A prepaid cell phone service lets you control your spending, as you will not be able to make calls once you have used up your available minutes.


Answer by  pollypink (36)

If you only need a phone number as a means of contact, but don't really talk to a lot of people, a prepaid phone makes sense over a contract.


Answer by  rjn613 (100)

If you use a cell phone only for emergencies, it makes much more sense to pay even $1 per minute than to pay $30 or more per month.

You do not need to worry about having to keep up with phone bills, but rather, pay as you need the service.
