Choosing between prepaid or postpaid SIM type is always confusing while buying a new phone connection or changing your phone plan. The differences between prepaid and postpaid play a vital role in this decision-making process along with user needs. However, to make it easier for you, let us understand what prepaid and postpaid plans are and which might better suit your needs.
