>> Postpaid Mobile Plans
A Postpaid mobile connection is like any other telephone connection, where you get a SIM Card, use it and pay for your monthly bill based on rentals, plan charges and usage charges etc.
Post Paid plan is a model of cellular service whereby the customer is charged for usage in the prior month (hence 'post' usage), and hence does not feature any limitations on volume of service used. In contrast the Prepaid model asks customers to add a certain amount to their accounts prior to usage and their maximum usage is limited to the amount that is added to the account.
Postpaid service typically requires two essential components in order to make the 'post-usage' model viable: 1. Credit history/Contractual commitment: This is the basis on which the service provider is able to trust the customer with paying their bill when its due and to have legal resource in case of non-payment 2. Service Tenure: Most postpaid providers require customers to sign long term (1-3 year) contracts committing to use of the service.
Failure to complete the term would make the customer liable for Early Terminiation Fees (ETF).
Depending on the country of usage, there might be a number of types of charges associated with such service: -Line Rent or Fixed charges which are basically fees charged by the service provider for the privilage of maintaining a phone number and account with them. -VAT/Taxes/Govt Fees which vary depending on the country but could add up to a substancial portion of the bill -Usage charges per minute of voice service, per text/pic/multimedia message sent or received
