My bill and insurance deductibles are ridiculous!

Just curious how much the average person pays for prepaid phones/service for 1 line-4 lines?!? 
                         VS

People who have been stuck with a contract of some sort for 1 line - 4 lines?!?

There are no many other variables involved, there's no way to give you an adequate answer. 

FYI, insurance deductibles only apply if you use insurance, so those are not regular expenses.

Plus with very few exceptions, no one is “stuck with a contract”. ATT quit doing service contracts years ago.

You do realize unless you pay 2X’s the amount for the phone...you are stuck with technically a no contract but just pay full price for your devices. Say you have 3 phone lines on your plan, you upgrade for a new special (free iPhone 12) and cancel your bill(genius)...your phone won’t transfer to a new company(won’t unlock) and your free iPhone’s just cost you a $3 grand!

The title has nothing to do with the question! I asked how much prepaid customers pay versus people who pay a monthly payment/a nonContract but stuck in a contract(unless they want to pay 2X’s as much per phone)?!? 

That’s the question! Please read the question and don’t focus on the title!

The requirements for the "free" phone promotions are that you remain a good standing customer for the terms of the installment plan. So of course if choose to cancel before that time that would void the promotion.
