Contract Plans v. Prepaid Phone Plans

When it comes to prepaid cell phone plans versus contract phone plans, it’s really a no brainer. Once you have the hardware, it’s simple and easy to take your device to a prepaid cell phone provider like BYO Wireless, and activate your old phone with a CDMA phone plan or GSM phone plan. Either way, you’ll have the same great coverage on the nation’s best networks, and won’t be locked into a two-year contract for services you don’t need.

Depending on how many prepaid minutes, text, and data you need, you can choose from one of seven BYO Wireless prepaid plans. If your prepaid phone plan runs out, you can easily add additional prepaid minutes, texts, or data. Instead of your jaw dropping at your phone bill each month, you can pay one price for everything up front. Talk about flexibility!

There is a reason more than a third of U.S. smartphone sales are prepaid mobile plans, according to Tom’s Guide. And, since you can bring your own phone, you don’t have to sacrifice your device for budget-friendly prepaid cell phone plans!

So many reasons. So simple to activate your own phone.

Dont take our word for it. Here's what others are saying about BYO Wireless

OMG! How easy was that! My mother-in-law needed a cell phone-but not with all the bells and whistles. Thanks! Jennifer G.
This is great – my son can have his own phone and I don't have to buy a new one. Don S.
My husband said it would be "stupid-proof"--and he was right, he was able to do it! Who knew this old phone would be anything more than a paper weight? - Sue B
Went the lake this weekend and BYO Wireless saved me! After losing my smartphone in the lake last year, I didn’t want to risk it again. I activated my old phone in about 5 minutes, forwarded my calls using *72 and kept it on the jet ski and boat all weekend! Best of all, my BYOW phone had perfect reception when all the other phones got nothing! What an incredible service!” – Chris T
My 11 year old has been bugging me for a phone. I found BYO Wireless to be VERY affordable and super easy to reuse an old phone I had. I even let my son complete the process following the step by step directions…he had no problems and his mother and I are thrilled!” Morgan C.
