I have switched to a prepaid iPhone with Verizon to save some money. I am wondering if that was the best thing to do? Now I don't get free phones with upgrades, however I am no longer in a contract and paying less for the same plan. The second biggest turn off with my prepaid plan is they deactivated my hotspot feature. I use this feature a lot! I don't really want to go back to a contract just for that reason, however that is a big issue for me. The service itself seems to be the exact same. No issues of dropped calls, missing texts, loss on internet connection on phone. Everything else works perfect! Which do you prefer?
