Today, nearly everyone uses a cell phone, but not everyone wants a two-year commitment. Most people don’t even realize there is an alternative to contract cell phone plans. That alternative is actually quite simple – no-contract (prepaid) cell phone service. According to the NPD Group, a global information company, in the first quarter of 2013, one-third (36 percent) of smartphone sales were represented by prepaid. Furthermore, according to CTIA’s semi-annual report, the total number of prepaid users grew 23.4 percent to 76.4 million in 2012 from 71.7 million in 2011. You may wonder – why are so many people switching to prepaid? The popular answer would be that it’s cheaper. However, there are several other rewarding benefits causing people to switch to prepaid.
As already stated, the primary benefit to no-contract cell phone service is saving money. If you’ve read the blog post Keeping it “no-contract” Since 1998, you’ll be familiar with the fact that you can save over $1,000 over the course of a two-year contract by choosing Page Plus Cellular. It’s hard not to save money when our prepaid cell phone plans are nearly half the cost of most contract plans. Not to mention, there’s no “bill shock” with Page Plus – you don’t receive a bill in the mail so we won’t deck you with pesky overages. That’s the beauty of prepaid – you pay for what you need ahead of time. If you happen to run out of usage, simply add more minutes, messages or data to your account (see blog post: How to Get More Data on Your Monthly Plan for more information). Essentially, you have the freedom to do what you want. If you want to switch to another plan, just switch. If you want your account to be replenished automatically month-to-month, just set up Auto Refill. We believe in cell phone freedom without the red tape and we’ve been doing it since 1998, so it’s safe to say – you’re in good hands!
Another reason our no-contract cell phone service is becoming more popular than ever is the fact that we’re straight up about our service. You may have heard that some of the major contract carriers are offering payment plans on their phones now. What they don’t tell you is that you’re really not saving any money in the long-run. Considering they haven’t lowered their service plans, you’re essentially paying the same amount (if not more), but in monthly increments. With Page Plus, we sell you phones at competitive prices, match you up with the best monthly plan for your needs and don’t require you to sign any contracts whatsoever. As mentioned before, we’re straight up about our service – no hidden fees; no gimmicks.
Everyone’s moving to no-contract cell phone service for the right reasons – it’s simple, convenient and smart. In addition to the general prepaid benefits explained above, Page Plus offers some extra benefits. To learn more on why you should choose Page Plus as your no-contract service provider, click here.
