Wireless Prepaid Phones

by Trish Williams

In today’s fast-paced world, most people have cellular phones, but some, still don’t. If you’re among the thousands who have not yet taken that step to get a cellular phone, for whatever reason, maybe the time has come for you to jump in. Perhaps wireless prepaid phones are just what you need to get you started.

Wireless prepaid phones are a growing trend, especially for short-term use during vacations and business trips. They provide flexibility in the sense that they’re already pre-paid and one less thing to worry about on your trip. Wireless prepaid phones also offer financial control, being that you can pay for them in advance and not worry about additional costs. A wireless prepaid phone is also a great asset for emergency use.

Many wireless phone companies offer great savings and packages on wireless prepaid phones. Business people, as well as parents of concerned teenagers, have purchased these phones and have found them to come in quite handy.

Wireless prepaid phones offer decent add-ons such as glow-in-the-dark faceplates and all types of gadgets (buttons and antennas) that colorfully light up when the phone rings. They even have fashionable handsets. Many come with up-to-date software packages and information on news and entertainment. They also offer instant messaging so you can keep in touch with family. Instant messaging can be quite fun, especially when on a wireless unit.

Another reason some choose to use wireless prepaid phones is to avoid long-term contracts. Also, if you have bad credit, it won’t affect your purchase of these phones in the least.

Wireless prepaid phones can vary in price. They can begin under $10 and get higher with extra features and packages. All the major wireless companies features these phones: At&T Wireless, Cellular One, Cingular, Nextel, Sprint, TracFone Wireless, and Verizon, to name a few.

How cell phones work

If you’ve ever wondered how cell phones and wireless technology work, Cellular One has a good description, “Cell phones use low-energy FM radio waves to transmit voice to the nearest antenna site connected with the local phone network. The call goes through either a regular phone line, or by radio signal to another cell phone, depending on the service. Wireless technology uses individual radio frequencies over and over by dividing service areas into different geographic zones. These zones are called ‘cells.’” Wireless prepaid phones offer the leading technology!

The difference between digital and analogy technology

Ever wondered the difference between digital and analogy technology? Once again, Cellular One says, “Analog means voice transmission is carried ‘as-is’ on the airwaves, while digital changes voice data to binary, or computer code, then back to voice again. Analog is the original form of cellular service using waveform transmissions and operates in the 800MHz frequency range. Although digital is fast replacing analog service, analog still has the largest coverage area and can be used in rural locations where digital service is not available. Digital service has significant advantages over analog and can multiply a network’s capacity exponentially.”

So, are wireless prepaid phones for you? Truly, in this age of technology, there’s no reason to be without a convenient way to make a phone call, whether for business, pleasure or during an emergency.
