What should be included in a budget for prepaid calling plans?

Prepaid Cell Phone Plans

Prepaid wireless plans are excellent "starter" cell phone calling plans for teenagers and younger family members. If your younger family members are saving for prepaid cell phone voice plans, don't forget to include the activation fee and the price of the new cell phone into the budget.

Many cheap cell phone plans offered by major wireless service providers offer daytime fees (10 cents per minute, for example) with free night time calling. The best "pay as you go" cell phone voice plans also include free calls to other subscribers on the network, but regardless, be sure to read the fine print about roaming charges. Most major networks specify rates and calling costs based on the company's coverage area and the geographic limits of the prepaid cell phone voice plan.
