While prepaid phone plans can be confusing, T-Mobile starts you out with a cell phone (including a Sidekick) and $15.00 of airtime as a starter kit. Sound good?
Some phones include instant messaging, speakerphone, and Web browsing (based on the model). As with other prepaid cellular phone plans, T Mobile doesn't require a credit check or contract. It does tack on extra fees for text and mixture instant messaging.
If you don't like the T Mobile prepaid cell phone deal, perhaps having a gold card will help. T Mobile offers minute refills, and if you add $100 to your account, you become a Gold Rewards customer and receive 15% more minutes. Pay As You Go tip: Just make sure to pay attention to the expiration date of the minutes so they don't go to waste.
Can even a gold card save a system that PhoneScoop.com derided? If you keep track of your minutes and don't talk too much (you'd be surprised how quickly $15.00 worth of minutes can add up), you can Get More out of your prepaid cell phone plan.
