Wireless Carriers with a Contract

In choosing what wireless rate plans or service are right for you, you must first decide if you want “Postpaid Service” or “Prepaid Service”.  “Postpaid” wireless service usually requires a contract.  In exchange for that contract, the wireless carrier such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile usually give you a heavily discounted smartphone and allow you to make payments monthly.  Postpaid wireless services, usually requires a credit check.

Prepaid wireless services do not require credit checks and there are no contracts. You pay for the service up front, every month. If you do not pay your bill for the upcoming month, your service will be shut off. For more information on prepaid service, follow this link
