I really need to know because the "Prepaid Phones" section in the shop is extremely limited and only consists of Alcatel phones. What's the difference between a Prepaid phone and a normal phone?

the prepaid phones you pay full price for (ie-no subsidy), and you have to go on a prepaid plan.  The
"normal" phones you can get for a lower cost (sometimes $0) and go on a Postpaid plan

But there is absolutely no difference as far as the phones themselves are concerned.
