Finding a prepaid phone

A nifty Web site lets you compare prepaid cell phone plans.

If you're looking for a prepaid cell phone, sorting through the various plans and carriers can be exhausting. Not only do major carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile offer prepaid plans, but also there are smaller, specialty carriers like Virgin Mobile that do a lot of prepaid business.

So as I said, it can be confusing. But recently I came across a Web site than neatly wraps up all the prepaid options in the United States and Canada. Prepaid Reviews rates the prepaid options from 24 carriers. You can see the pros and cons of each operator, track which phones they offer, write reviews, and read evaluations on several categories. Also, there's a cool option that allows you to compareup to three carriers at once. If you're looking to go prepaid, be sure to check it out.
