Plans: Post-paid Vs. Pre-paid
Traditionally we would recommend going prepaid for your child’s smartphone, however with Telstra introducing new month-to-month plans with no lock-in contracts, no excess data charges in Australia and Unlimited standard national calls and texts, bill shock is now a thing of the past and if you leave, simply pay out your device.
