Prepaid phones have thier place. I dont think any cell phone is popular in the well liked category =P. However they are picking up speed, and also there is a new generation of services emerging that are hybrid post prepaid accounts. Such as T-Mobile SMart Access and Go Phone Plan by cingular (Not to be confused with Cingular Prepaid go phone) They are services with a monthly bill that Cut off services after a dollar amount or usage is reached to prevent overage. SPrint just came out with fair and flexible which in a twisted way is similar but not as assured of bill control.
Prepaid is popular among younger children and people that simply want a phone in the case of an emergency, as well as people with poor or no credit, but they are not a savings at all.
I was wondering if prepaid cell phones were popular or if people really enjoyed there preapid service
