Prepaid Mobile Phone

A prepaid mobile phone (also commonly referred to as pay-as-you-go, pay-as-you-talk, "pay and go", prepaid wireless, or Prepay) is a mobile phone for which credit is purchased in advance of service use. The purchased credit is used to pay for mobile phone services at the point the service is accessed or consumed. If there is no available credit then access to the requested service is denied by the mobile phone network. Users are able to top up their credit at any time using a variety of payment mechanisms.

The alternative billing method (and what is commonly referred to as a mobile phone contract) is the post-paid mobile phone, where a user enters into a long-term (generally lasting 12, 18 or 24 months) or short term (also commonly referred to as a rolling contract or a 30-day contract), billing arrangement with a mobile network operator or carriage service provider (CSP).

Famous quotes containing the words phone and/or mobile:

    Nobody wants to phone me,
    Even collect.
    Cole Porter (1893–1964)

    From three to six months, most babies have settled down enough to be fun but aren’t mobile enough to be getting into trouble. This is the time to pay some attention to your relationship again. Otherwise, you may spend the entire postpartum year thinking you married the wrong person and overlooking the obvious—that parenthood can create rough spots even in the smoothest marriage.
    Anne Cassidy (20th century)
