Reasons for Having a Pre Paid Mobile Phone

Reasons for Having a Pre Paid Mobile Phone


There are many reasons why some people choose a pre paid mobile phone rather than having a bill every month. Pre paid phones are especially great for children, as you don’t need to be a certain age to get one and you cant spend more money than you have topped up with, so no massive bills for mum and dad.

Pre paid mobile phones are also great for people who do not use their mobile much, if you don’t make many calls then you may not benefit from a contract and may in fact save money by going pre paid. Many of today’s pre paid plans even come with free calls and text messages, just like a pay monthly plan.

With a pre paid phone you do not need to worry about spending more than you can afford. You choose how much and how often to top up your phone and that is all you can spend, because you don’t receive a bill at the end of the month there are no nasty surprises and you can keep track of your spending easily.

Another reason many people choose a pre paid phone is that you are not tied into a long contract with a particular provider. If you come across a better deal you are free to switch providers, although you will need to purchase a new sim card and possibly get your phone unblocked so it will accept it. You can also change your handset as often as you like, something that is difficult and costly to do if you are on a contract.

There are of course drawbacks to having a pre paid phone, if you do make a lot of calls you may be better off financially with a contract phone as many of these come with free minutes and texts for a set price a month. If having the newest most up to date phone is important to you this could be costly if you are buying the handset on a pre paid tariff. Also if your handset is lost or stolen you will likely loose any credit on it and it could be difficult to get your original phone number back to use on a new handset, if however you have a contract phone your provider simply cancels your sim card and issues a new one.

Although there are drawbacks to having a pre paid mobile phone, they are very well suited to a lot of people. Pre paid phones are great for children and people who do not use their phone much as you are not paying for minutes you are not going to use. Many people also use their mobile phone simply for incoming calls, this is another great benefit of pre paid phones as with many tariffs there is no minimum top up so you can top up your phone once and then anyone can get you wherever you are.…

With the growing need for cars to become more environmentally friendly, and safer to drive the need for more computer control has become evident, and therefore the trend has given way to a more and more electronic car over the years.

I personally don’t know if this is a good thing, or a bad thing, the more gadgets you add to your car, the more likely it’s going to break down, but by the same token, along with this trend cars have also gotten a lot more comfortable to be in.

With the addition of LCD TV’S, and high end stereo equipment right from the factory, it’s more like being at home while your driving your car, you can even hook up you game console to the TV in your car, and the rear view back up camera had defiantly helped put with the safety side of things.

Cell Phones, Pre-teens, and the Horrible Parent

Cell Phones, Pre-teens, and the Horrible Parent


We’ve all seen it before. A young girl, 8 or 9 years old, wanders around our place of employment or a store we frequent. There’s no sign of an adult accompanying her, but thankfully she has the almighty her cell phone in hand.

Unfortunately for this little girl and others like her, she’s being neglected by her parent. If someone wants to abduct your daughter, chances are the first thing they’re going to do is slap that phone right out of her hand. The majority of children under the age of 13 have no need for a cell phone, because they shouldn’t be in a situation where they’re left to wander around without adult supervision for extended periods of time.

These are, of course, only my personal opinions on the subject. Letting your child have a cell phone isn’t always a bad idea, but it’s up to the parents to not let it change how they care for their child. A good rule of thumb is that if your child’s baby sitter can fit in their pocket, they need a new one.…
