As the fastest growing segment of telecommunications, consumers are beginning to take advantage of the benefits prepaid wireless has to offer. Such benefits include controlled cellular spending, no credit checks, no long term contracts, and immediate activation of service.

Our new BellSouth prepaid wireless product is the next logical addition to our comprehensive line of prepaid products and services." The new BellSouth Mobility prepaid wireless "starter kit", offered by Blackstone, includes an activated prepaid cellular phone and $30.00 of airtime. This kit retails for $99.00, and additional prepaid cards are sold in $10, $20, and $30 denominations. Retail airtime ranges from $0.40 to $0.50 per minute.
