Activating an Alcatel Smartflip prepaid phone.

When I activate the prepaid phone, do I have to get a plan to complete activation or can I load a prepaid card instead?

You will not get any service until you put some kind of a refill into your account. No you cannot just leave it sit on the prepaid card that is not how prepaid cellular service works
