What is "Data Overage"?
Your Prepaid plan comes with a certain amount of data each month and when you use up that data, your download speed is reduced to "2G" speeds (128 kb), or is completely cut off (a 'Hard Cap'), until the end of your billing month. You can normally purchase additional high-speed Data that gets you through to the end of the month.


Additional Ways to Save:
► Look for savings with plans for more than one month at a time.
► Some Prepaids have savings for "Family" plans.
Taxes are determined locally and could be as high as 40%. If yours is too high, choose a Prepaid with 'Taxes & Fees Included.'
►  Check for "Auto-Refill" discounts.
►  Some Prepaids offer even lower prices for plans with less or no Data, or a smaller amount of Talk & Text.
►  Most carriers offer an "intro" price and a discount on a SIM.


Prepaid Ratings
What Network Do They Use?
Prepaid carriers use the same wireless networks as the Big 3 major carriers, usually at a lower price. It's your way to use, say, Verizon cell sites, without paying Verizon's prices. You can choose your favorite prepaid carrier and see what network they use, or you can choose the network and see what carriers operate on that network, for less. You get your phone, plan and customer service from these Prepaid companies instead of the underlying carrier. Some use more than one network and some allow you to choose your network.
