Prepaid Or Post-paid
I was in the telecommunication industry for 12 years. We represented all the major carriers, sold phones across the country. Had wireless stores, carried locked and unlocked phones along with hundreds of accessory items. Had multiple national accounts that we provided phones and service to. We offered prepaid or post-paid accounts. Actually at that time post-paid accounts reigned supreme, and prepaid was without actually ever saying it, for people that had credit challenges or was unable to afford a post-pay account. Today, people look at prepaid totally different, and rightfully so.
The carrier wants you locked into a contract for two years, that is what they are pushing. When you are locked into a contract, they are better positioned to project their revenue. Something they need to be able to do for Wall Street and their shareholders. You can absolutely rest assured that they have done their homework. They know with you in a contract, it is a lot less likely you are going to switch before that contract is up. They know what you will generate for their bottom line, in that two year time frame, down to the penny.
The question is:
Are you going to gain or lose by moving from a post-pay account to a prepaid account?
Let’s look at the cost of ownership with a two-year contract versus Solavei.
There are any number of phones we could use which is a factor in determing the overall cost of your mobile service. Let me explain, if you go with Solavei over any post-paid carrier out there your phone will not be subsidized. That simply means you will be paying full price for the phone, when you sign a 2 year contract, the carriers figure the cost of the phone, into the overall contract. So instead of paying$199 for a subsidized phone you would pay $550. Some may automatically think well, I am not going to do that, why would I, that is a three hundred fifty dollars difference. To make a wise decision you have to look at the math. Here is the bottom line, you either pay for the phone upfront or you pay for it over the contract. Just remember you are still paying for it.
I know someone that works for a carrier, and a couple months ago when I spoke with him, he was thrilled with the HTC One S. I spoke with him 3-4 days ago and now he is in love with the Samsung Galaxy S3, so that is the phone, I am going to use for this example.
When you purchase the phone from a carrier with a post-paid contract you are also agreeing to data fees and a early termination fee if you cancel early. They have all of this calculated into the overall price of the whole package. This is just an example.
Wireless Carrier – 2 year agreement
Samsung Galaxy S3 $549.99
Instant Savings with Contract-$350
Activation Fee $36
Monthly access rate $40
Monthly Rate (4GB data) $70
Access fee, 24 months $960
Data fee, 24 months $1,680
2 Year total without tax $2876
Solavei – Prepaid, No Contract, No Credit Check
Samsung Galaxy S3 $549.99 (Solavei does not offer this phone)
One time Enrollment Fee $49
Monthly Rate $49 – unlimited talk, text and data
Data Fee $00.00
2 years of service $1176
2 Year Total without tax $1774.99
Our comparison with Solavei does not factor in the opportunity of getting your Unlimited Nationwide 4G Talk, Text and Data for Free. Let me just give you a couple of examples. Let’s say you sign up for the prepaid service and refer three people who also see the value and savings, and sign up. Your mobile phone bill just dropped to $29 per month plus taxes. That total without taxes is $696 for two years. If you refer six who see the value and savings of this prepaid service and sign up, your mobile plan is now only $9 per month plus taxes. That total without taxes for two years is $216. How is that for a savings?
Refer three – mobile service is $696 for a total for two years $1294.99 Savings over post-pay with Solavei – $1581.01
Refer six – mobile service is $216 for a total for two years $814.99 Savings over post-pay with Solavei - $2061.01
Wow, is about all you can say, in the example with Solavei you are buying the phone outright and paying only $49 per month and still experiencing a savings of $1101, with no referrals. The other great thing about Solavei is it is GSM. The benefit of that is you can take the Sim card out and put it in another GSM compatible phone and be up and running in no time at all. Solavei uses the T-Mobile backbone or system so it works great.
For those concerned about customer support, Solavei has put in place a top notch customer support. The Head of Member Experience is Maria Pinchevsky who is the former VP of customer service at T-Mobile.
We have not even factored into the equation of getting your service for Free. Solavei is the best deal going with out question. If you are looking to cut expenses, here is one way to do that. Normally, when thinking of reducing one’s expenses it means settling for something a lot less. Not with Solavei, here you get more and pay less. You cannot only save money, but you can make money as well. If you would like to know how to get started saving and how you can make money, then contact me today to get started. That is the question you need to answer Prepaid Or Post-paid?
