If you can do a month by month payment for services equal to a plan without a contract:
1- You will save yourself a lot of money
2- You can choose ANY phone that you want (as long as the gsm compatible)
3- You can quit anytime, you're not obliged to finish the contract
Here in my country, I'm paying $50 per month and am locked down.
I could be paying $18 per month for the same services. That's a saving over $500, which is sure to cover phone upgrades.
And if more people went prepaid, the profits of the Telecommunications would slim down. They'd have to be competitive to actually win customers. Overall, people would be voting with their wallets and the consumers would win.
