Prepaid and postpaid are the two methods of using a mobile phone. In India prepaid is the favorite way to pay for your mobile phone.
According to a report from Nielsen, prepaid mobiles are popular in emerging markets. India ranks 2nd only after Russia. Prepaid users are not known for being loyal to their mobile operators, they just terminate the connection if they find a better plan from another operator. But getting a connection in India is not as easy as it use to be before – one has to give all necessary documents.
