Nokia Prepaid Mobile Phones

Being one of the first cell phone manufacturers in the world is not just the reason why Nokia has quite an exceptional reputation. Nokia remains as one of the cell phone manufacturers that keep on producing high quality and hi-tech cell phones from time to time. In fact, when I first saw a mobile phone, it was a Nokia prepaid mobile phone. I was too na├»ve to understand the concept of cell phones and to me, cell phone meant Nokia and Nokia meant cell phone. In other words, I always referred to cell phone as Nokia, for instance when I saw my friend didn’t bring his mobile to work, I would say to him why he didn’t bring his Nokia, though his phone was Sony Ericsson. At least, that was my first impression of mobile phone world.

Well, at first I thought that it was just me until recently I met a few of my alma mater friends and acquaintances at a high school reunion. While catching up with them, including talking to the prom queen at the time, I have discovered few things in common that we all share. We all use cell phones (of course some of them are using smartphones and PDA) and ironically, we all share the same brand; Nokia. Almost 90% of those who attended the reunion are using Nokia mobile phones. And quite more interestingly, almost 75% are using Nokia prepaid. Why? I assume that we are all fond of Nokia products since it launched its products here in our country.

Nokia has managed to conquer Malaysia’s mobile phone market for quite some time after the launch. This could be due to the fact that Nokia aimed to produce mobiles that can be used not just by the riches but also for everyone. Though Nokia is originated from Finland, almost no one at the time knows about it as we all tended to believe that the phone comes from Asia countries. Some would say that the mobile came from China and some said the phone came from Japan. In fact, no one really knew during that time that Nokia perhaps has been playing a very large role in the Finland’s economy.

Do you like history? No? All right, let’s just take a brief one. Nokia has actually inherited its name from a river in Finland which they called Nokianvirta and it was founded by Fredrick Idestam. Became popular during Kari Kairamo period as Nokia’s CEO, Nokia continues its journey by producing more and more high quality cell phones. By 2007, Nokia had captured the heart of all Asian people with its phone’s qualities as well as its unique shapes. Furthermore, since Asian phone users are more exposed to prepaid concept, Nokia has the advantages since its phones are compatible with either postpaid or prepaid plans. Nokia has again won the game.

Of course I can go rambling and rambling on about Nokia and its history but that is not what we are going to discuss here. Today my interest is to take a look at these days phenomenon that is related to Nokia. We are going to take some time to look at how many phone carriers have collaborated with Nokia to produce arrays of prepaid plans that utilize Nokia’s cell phone. There are no doubts over what Nokia phone can do and how many companies have actually used Nokia for both contract-based plans and prepaid phone plans.

There are just so many prepaid carriers in the US and I have listed down their names here just for your own reference. If you think you know any that is not in the list, please feel free to contact me or leave your comment just below the post. I have to remind you though that this list does not necessarily mean that they have Nokia phones offered in one of their plans. I’m just listing them down so that in the future if I have any news about these prepaid companies, I will definitely refer it to this post from a new one.

Alltel Prepaid Company
AT&T Prepaid Carrier
Boost Mobile Company
Cingular (merged with AT&T in 2007 and is now part of AT&T brands…)
Cricket Prepaid Plans
Earth Tones
Jump Mobile Company
Kajeet Prepaid Carrier
Liberty Wireless Prepaid Company
Locus Prepaid
Metro PCS
Net10
02 Wireless Prepaid Company
Omni Prepaid
Page Plus Cellular
Simple Freedom Prepaid Carrier
STI Mobile Company
SunCom Wireless
Total Call Mobile
T-Mobile Prepaid
Tracfone Prepaid Carrier
US Cellular Prepaid
Venture Mobile
Verizon Wireless
Virgin Mobile USA
Xtreme Mobile

Ok, all these prepaid companies are arranged alphabetically for reference purposes. If I manage to get my hands on any news about any of these companies, I will link it from the name to the new post.

Let’s take a look at the first carrier which is Alltel. Alltel does not have Nokia phones offered in its list but as far as I’m concerned, they have other brands such as Motorola, LG, HTC, and also Blackberry cell phones. Alltel itself is a reputable and has earned quite a lot of recognitions and it is worth to talk about the company soon in the future. Their prepaid plans are worth to consider too we are not going to go deeper about it yet. But they have three different basic prepaid plans; pay-per-minute, pay-per-day, and pay-per-month plan. Pay-per-month starts from $29.99 per month where you can have up to 700 minutes airtime (accumulated minutes you speak on the phone). Their popular plan at this moment is pay-per-day plan where the plan starts from 75 cents per day.

AT&T on the other hand does not need an introduction. Almost everyone knows who AT&T is. Since its merge with Cingular, AT&T could be considered as the country’s number one cell phone service provider. This Atlanta prepaid company has managed to design a great flexible prepaid plan and some of their plans are much better than other prepaid plans offered by other providers. However, their rates are considered pretty higher than other prepaid services from other companies. In other word, you should consider AT&T if you prefer to have branded names but if you are not, then you should consider other prepaid service providers as well.


How about Kajeet Prepaid? Who is Kajeet by the way? Kajeet is a prepaid company that is based in Maryland and dedicated to provide cell phones that are suitable for kids. To Kajeet, kids are intelligent and therefore they should be provided with the right cell phones. Since Kajeet believes that prepaid plans are suitable to be provided to kids, their plans are all prepaid which means you won’t find any contract plans in their offers.

Kajeet prepaid has a range of prepaid plans that are attractive yet affordable by anyone. With only $4.99 per month, I assume that this amount is affordable by almost anyone especially kids. Parents are welcome to subscribe to any of Kajeet’s prepaid plans for their children. I heard that Kajeet offers Nokia 6151 for one of their prepaid plans. The Nokia 6151 is a not-that-pretty cell phone yet it is a good cell phone. the Nokia 6151 does support 3G at 384 kilo bytes per second (kbps) and all other data connections such as GPRS, HSCSD, EDGE, Bluetooth, infrared, and also USB 2.0 connection.

For messaging purposed, the Nokia 6151 prepaid cell phone can be used for SMS, MMS, email, and instant messaging (IM). Oh yes the Nokia 6151 does have a camera which is 1.3 mega pixel. This cell phone could be considered as a tough mobile since many has claimed before that they had accidentally dropped the phone many times yet the phone continues to perform without any interruption. In other words, the Nokia 6151 prepaid cell phone from Kajeet is a superb cell phone and I really do recommend the phone for your children. Not just for them though, even I myself would buy the phone since the mobile is a great cell phone. oh yes, another thing is you can get up to 3000 free text messages from Kajeet if you purchase any of its prepaid plans.

There are a number of benefits when you use Kajeet cell phones. When you purchase any of its prepaid plans, you will be given a time manager or contact manager settings where you could block few numbers that are not supposed to be called by children, if you know what I mean. These numbers include (but not exhaustive) 911 and also 900 numbers. All these numbers can be blocked to avoid your children from calling them. However, one thing about prepaid plans that I don’t like is when they charge you for both sending and receiving text messages. I can see the reasons behind charging us when we text someone but I don’t see any reason at all why should we be charged for receiving the messages. No matter how low the cost is, I see that as too ridicule to be accepted. Yet, I’m happy enough now since in my area no one is charging your for receiving a text message!

I have already mentioned before that Cingular has merged with AT&T and therefore all of its products are now under AT&T brand. Yet, Cingular does offer Nokia phones on few of its prepaid plans. One of the phones is Nokia 6085. The cell phone is a camera phone and it is a flip type cell phone. Nokia 6085 does not support 3G and HSCSD but it does support Bluetooth data connection as well as USB 2.0. The camera is VGA (unfortunately) and you may capture up to 640 by 480 pixel images with it. It can be used for video capturing as well but I doubt that the video would be a clear crystal one.

Fortunately, the Nokia 6085 prepaid cell phone supports all popular media playback for music; polyphonic, AAC, and also MP3. That’s why the cell phone has a built-in slot for you to slide in your own microSD memory card up to two gigabytes. The Nokia 6085 prepaid cell phone’s talk time is up to 5 hours and standby time could last up to ten days. If you don’t have a memory card, don’t be too worry about it since the cell phone has an internal memory up to 4 MB. The mobile is quite light where it is only weigh 84 grams and its dimension is 92mm by 46mm by 23mm. If you are not that savvy or you are not really into mobile, then this Nokia 6085 prepaid from AT&T is definitely a smart choice.

When it comes to T-Mobile, I am always fascinated with its prepaid plans. But since our discussion evolves around Nokia phones, then I have to restrict my selections to only plans with Nokia phones. However, I’m not sure why they don’t have much sophisticated Nokia mobile phones in their store. One of the phones is Nokia 1208. The Nokia 1208 is a simple and basic cell phone yet it is good enough for anyone who believes that cell phone should only serves two purposes; make and receive calls, and texting. This phone from Nokia is just suitable for these audiences and if you want to get this phone from T-Mobile, just choose any of their prepaid plans. The phone’s specification is not that glamorous like any other Nokia mobile phones.

Let’s continue our journey. Virgin mobile is also one of those phone service carriers that do not need an introduction. It is an established company and Virgin mobile is recognized all over the United States though it is originated from the United Kingdom. Virgin Mobile has also expanded its services to prepaid service by introducing an array of prepaid plans that are competitive. Two types of prepaid plans are available to be chosen and they are pay-per-month prepaid plan and another one is pay-per-minute prepaid plan.

That’s all for now. I will continue with other prepaid companies in my next posts. As for now, I believe that I have made my points to show you that Nokia is a great mobile phone and there is no doubt why the cel phone is popular for both contract plan and prepaid plan.

Can you make money from using Maxis Hotlink prepaid?

If you are a long time user of Hotlink, then I believe you have more than the knowledge on how Maxis charges you for anything and everything. Why waste the money for things you do not really need when you can actually earn money from it? You may not be as rich as Ananda Krishnan, the owner of Maxis Malaysia, but at least you can earn some money from all the telcos though you stick with Maxis Hotlink.

What if I use Celcom Xpax?

I know that sometimes you don't have the courage to try switching from one service to another. You might say that you are not sure about the advantages of other phone plans or network. Frankly say, that unsure feeling is just something you developed inside you due to successful marketing strategy from Celcom. Either using Celcom Xpax or Blue, it won't matter and you don't have to worry much if you plan to switch to Hotlink or Digi. Remember, at this time the cost to change or transfer is still free and therefore take advantage of that. Change and try it for a month and then you can always change back to your original provider. However, as far as money is concern, go for package that offers you lower call rates and that will absolutely help you to earn more money when you join Mymode.
