PrePaid costs less than contract price, flash phone

by DrFrito    Dec 12, 2012, 3:25 PM

I've been checking, my phone is pretty much dead and that limits me to a choice of 4 phones I can get without a data plan.

We pay ~$88 per month after taxes for unlimited minutes and texts. If I add the 2gb data plan to our phones our cost jumps to $133.49 give or take after taxes.

BUT, if we switch to prepaid, we would have our 2 lines and 1gb data per phone with unlimited talk/text for $100 after tax.

We don't really have a choice of providers here other than spotty coverage of Verizon.

Could we flash our phones so they would work on prepaid us cellular?
mine is a Motorola w385 which is dying and my wife's is a LG something with a slide out keyboard.

Sorry so long. Any thoughts on this?
btw. Why is their prepaid so much less expensive?
