3 Must-Have Telstra Prepaid Phones

Whenever we’re buying a new phone, we always see to it that we’re getting it right with the brand, specs, build, colourways and other preferences. We mostly focus on these categories that we often overlook other choices. Just like the prepaid or postpaid options.

For some people, especially the younger ones, whatever’s given to them is usually fine. But if you’re already a strong independent man and woman, you must know what will work best for you already.

But don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with getting torn between two options sometimes. In this case, to go prepaid or to go postpaid. To help you decide on which one’s the better option for you, below is a brief explainer.

Prepaid – going for a prepaid mobile phone means that you are paying upfront first. For this arrangement, you will get a certain number of calls, texts, and data for a certain amount of money.

The expiry and daily limits of your provisions will depend on what kind of prepaid plan you’ll subscribe to.

Postpaid – when it comes to this arrangement, you will have to pay your dues every end of the month. You will receive all your calls, texts, and data credits at the start of the month, then you’ll pay for it after. In case you exceed your limits, you’ll have to pay other charges on top of your monthly dues.

This setup usually lasts for 12-24 months.

If you feel that you need a prepaid mobile plan more than a postpaid one, you’re on the right track. Below are only some of the reasons why you might be better off with prepaid.

  • It will help you save money
  • There are no hidden charges
  • You can change your network anytime you want

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, below are only some of the best prepaid mobile phones from Telstra Australia that you can buy right now.
