From Postpaid To Prepaid

One of the reasons I stuck to postpaid mobile for quite some time is because I got totally confused by the terms like ‘top-up’, ‘recharge’ and ‘talk-time’. But my mobile phone bill is reaching all time high (business+personal use through the same number) and I had to take few steps.

I’m slowly shifting from postpaid to prepaid and already obtained a special number by paying few extra bucks. I also got two extra numbers for my family so that we can talk longer. I hope there won’t be hidden charges. I’d really have loved to keep my existing number but it looks like the mobile number portability is still out of reach of the mobile operators in India. The latest news is that the MNP will not be available until the end of this year. I’ve two options : Discard my earlier number (which I really love) and two, keep both the numbers. I think its going to be really painful to keep two cell phones and also face the extra radiation emerging from them.

I wish I had bought a dual SIM phone.

    I wish too. I carry two mobile phones everywhere. Dual SIM phone would have made it easier plus I didn't have to answer questions like "why do you carry two mobile phones"

    If you are into business, then forget prepaid.

    Use Postpaid with certain restrictions. Simple use landline phone at work / home to call someone who has landline. Call mobile users from mobile. Will really save much more money. Provided you need to have a landline phone either at home or office.
