    Tzones all you can eat 5.99 can't go wrong.

    T-Zones is free for T-Mobile To Go. An undiscounted $100 refill with 1000 minutes is cheaper than the cheapest T-Mobile postpaid plan if you use less than 360 minutes a month, including nights and weekends (or 450 minutes a month depending on how frequently Target or other retailers have the $50 refill cards on sale for $40, but you'll need to buy 2 and use both refill cards at the same time).

    I'm trying to follow what your saying but....

    I pay 39.99/month for 1000 minutes then $5.99 for t-zones. How is your $100 for the same thing cheaper?

    If you use all 1000 minutes each month, then the prepaid is more expensive. However, if your typical usage is less than 360-450 minutes a month, the prepaid is actually cheaper. Example:

    You are on the $29.99 + $5.99 for t-zones, use an average of 300 minutes a month. After 3 months, you've paid $107.94, but if you had use the prepaid plan, you've spent $100 (or maybe $80 if you were able to get the refill cards on sale), and you still have 100 minutes left.

    A downside to the prepaid cards is that you don't get an itemized call list from T-Mobile, so you can't be reimbursed by work for work related calls like you can with a postpaid plan.

    I see what your saying....

    Not a big enough difference to be worth bothering for me especially with the downside as you mention but interesting thought for people still considering what to do.

    For me, it's a big deal, since I still have a land line, and I use less than 100 mobile minutes/month. If my $100 refill lasts a year, it's like an $8/month prepaid plan, much cheaper than $36/month with the postpaid plan. It's all about minimizing the monthly price for the number of minutes you normally use, and in my case, prepaid is clearly saving me a lot of money over postpaid.
