While many of us are accustomed to traditional contract-based phones and plans, more and more users are adopting prepaid phone plans instead. Where prepaid phones used to be only a select few with slim features, now virtually any device can be used on a prepaid phone plan across any number of standard carriers. The benefits are many, and may save you a great deal of money of the course of what a standard contract would run. Considering the fact that you can purchase your own device and bring it to nearly any carrier opens a great set of options for users.

Prepaid phones are a plenty — and while they still vary slightly between carriers — include many of the top devices on the market. Big carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon all offer devices that include the likes of the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 5s, and Lumia 928. No matter which carrier you plan to use, your more than likely to find a device you'll love to go along with it. Prepaid phones and plans are a great way to have more "freedom" than standard plans, meaning there are more reasons now than ever before to give prepaid phones a second look.
