As the main differences have recently narrowed between a prepaid, or pay as you go, phone SIM and a monthly plan, you might find yourself unsure of what's the best option for you. Here are the main differences between the two types of mobile plan, to help you make an informed decision.
Pay as you go
If you choose pay as you go, you are always in control of your spending, paying in advance so there are no surprises. If you run out of minutes and you need to make a call, you can always top up quickly and easily to carry on using your phone, so you can tailor your phone costs to your needs, even if that varies from month to month. If you don't need your phone much one month, but want to make a lot of calls the next, you can easily adapt your spending to suit you.
With a pay monthly plan, you don't have to remember to top up so you can continue using your phone – just sit back and let it take care of itself. For committing to a monthly plan, you'll get more benefits than with pay as you go, so a larger amount of minutes, texts and data. This is in exchange for paying a set fee every month, which won't vary. Another benefit of this is that you can factor it into your budget easily, knowing exactly what you'll be spending on your phone each month. If you choose pay monthly, you know you'll always be ready to make calls, send texts, or use data whenever you need to.
