PAYG Plan Reviews

Are you researching prepaid wireless plans and looking to read or share PAYG plan reviews?  Do you currently, or have you used a Pay As You Go (i.e. PAYG = per minute) prepaid wireless plan?  This is the classic (now legacy!) plan type that started the prepaid wireless revolution, and it still lives today!  Pay-As-You-Go plans have become increasinglly competitive, and still offer great value and convenience for people who only use their wireless phone occasionally, or in spurts, but not a lot of usage on a daily or regularly basis.


If you have experience with this plan type, we'd love to hear about it!  Please share your feedback by entering your review in the form below; it's super easy!  Here are a few things to consider including in your PAYGo plan reviews, but by all means, please don't limit yourself to these topics only.  Tey're here only to help you get started thinking about the plan aspects that people tend to be interested in, but is by no means all inclussive.
  • Which pay-as-you-go service provider(s) have you tried?
  • Were/are you happy with the the denominations (ex. $10, $20, $30, $50, etc.) that were/are available for purchase?  This is the amount of money that a wireless carrier lets you add to your account at any one time.  Do they offer you access to Real Time Replenishment (also known as Topup) with open range denominations?
  • Were/are you happy with the expiration value attached to each card/PIN and your account balance (ex. 30 days, 90 days, 120 days, etc.)?
  • Did/do you receive good notifications about when your account balance is low, or when your funds are about to expire so your phone is always active and available?
  • Were/are you generally happy with the per minute value?
  • Would you recommend the service to a friend?
Visitors to this page want to know about your first-hand experience, and to hear about what's the best Pay As You Go plan out there, so thank you in advance for sharing your valuable thoughts and insights!
