Yes, you can use your Android phone on prepaid. You would just need a prepaid SIM instead of a post paid one. This is coming from a fellow Android GoPhone user myself. Smiley Happy

And you're welcome.

Hi there!

 

Do you mean can you use the SIM card on a Go phone? If so, you are definitely able place your SIM card in the Go Phone and use it as normal! Smiley Wink

That's how I interpreted it as well.

Yes, you may use a GoPhone on a post paid plan if you'd like. Unless you're wanting to do something else we did not understand?

Yes, you would have to pay the ETF to cancel your contract and move to prepaid service. I would recommend paying your ETF at the end of your billing cycle, but you can choose when you'd like to.

You're welcome (again). Smiley Wink Have a good weekend, too!
