      My mobile is on contract. I pay £45 a month for 1200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data. My previous data limit was higher, but I sacrificed 250MB data to get free tethering on my iPhone, which can be handy if I'm stuck waiting an hour for a train as the cafe in my local station doesn't have WiFi.

      I never use my full data anyway. I have WiFi at home, my parent's house, my girlfriend's parents and if I go round my friends I often get their passes and just return the favour and offer mine when they are here.

      My husband and I are on a contract family plan. Although we have way too many minutes, it's nice that we have unlimited data and texting. I wish they had some sort of couples plan, since we really don't need 1500 minutes, especially since it's free to talk to each other and my family.

      I am considering moving to a contract as you get a better phone. But at the moment I only spend around £10 a month pay as you go and a contract with a decent phone will be about 3 times that amount per month.

      I am on a 2 year contract, with a free phone every 2 years. Just started it last week, and got a free iPhone with it. I pay £21 a month for 100 minutes, 500MB of internet and 500 texts. Previously I was on a sim-only contract, which was unlimited texts and 500 minutes for £10 a month, which was a brilliant deal.

      At one time i was paying $100 a month for 2 contract phones. Then i ditched that for pay as you go phones which cost $1.00 every day you use and $0.10 per minute to call non-network phones. Good thing though, cause it's free calling to in network phones and i would call my honey on the phone while he was on the job and we would talk three or four hours at a time. I let him talk to the baby too. LOL! She was so little at the time. That was pretty much the only time we all got to spend together cause of his schedule. That was sometime back. Now i have just an emergency 911 phone that has no valid sim card but still works to call emergency 911 number. And, i don't pay for that, the emergency call is free and has already been used once in the last 2 years. So very necessary.

      I prefer contracts, they offer better phones.....and my contracts are only a year and a half long anyway... :) I get a new phone every year and half so it's not that big of a deal for me :D

      Have a plan with 2 phones. Unlimited data, text and shared 900 minutes. We barely get even close to the talk minutes, a lot of texts and on my end I easily pass the 5GB mark each month downloading podcasts and streaming music while at work. Thank you for unlimited data.

      Don't like pay as you go, it seems iffy to me. XD Contract is more reliable i think.
