Prepaid: Not just for burner phones anymore | Android Central: " . . .The numbers don't lie. With the same phone and relatively the same service (or even better in terms of data offerings) from a prepaid carrier, you'll save hundreds -- or even thousands -- of dollars over the life of the 2-year contract. The deceptive marketing of the major carriers in the U.S. masks the true cost of ownership of a device over the life of the contract. Putting it on a chart like this, which shows that even in the most expensive case you "break even" in 8 out of 24 months, makes it extremely clear what savings there are to be had by going prepaid. Now there’s no need to keep making the same point over and over, I think the above chart and graph speak for themselves. There’s no way to make a blanket statement about everyone’s situation, but the numbers would have to be significantly different for the prepaid carrier to ever be more expensive than the postpaid carrier in the long term -- or even the relatively short term. . . .There are officially some 40 distinct MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) carriers in the U.S., giving you plenty of options to choose from . . ."
