Verizon Wireless today revamped its prepaid plans for both feature phones and smartphones. The new Allset plans for feature phones cost $35 per month for 500 voice minutes, unlimited messaging, and 500MB of data. Feature phones can jump to unlimited voice and text, and 500MB of data for $45 per month. Allset smartphone plans cost $45 per month and include unlimited voice, texting, and 500MB of data. Verizon is also offering what it calls "Bridge Data." Allset plan customers can add more data to their plan at any time. For example, customers can add 500MB (30-day expiration) to their Allset plan for $5 per month; 1GB (90-day expiration) for $10 per month; or 3GB (90-day expiration) for $20 per month. Unused data will carry over to the next month. For a limited time, Verizon is offering to double the monthly data allotment, as well as include 1,000 monthly minutes for calling to Canada and Mexico, for all Allset customers who sign up with autopay. Allset smartphone customers will be able to use their devices as a mobile hotspot. Verizon's new Allset plans are available beginning today.

Needs LTE.

Unused data will carry over to the next month. For a limited time, Verizon is offering to double the monthly data allotment,Allset smartphone customers will be able to use their devices as a mobile hotspot. Verizon's new Allset plans are available beginning today.

It sounds.nice but at this point they should be offering LTE data for their prepaid plans like At&t and tmobile.
Yeah, there is no reason they can't include LTE. Aio (AT&T) $50 plan includes 2.5 GB of LTE high-speed (8mbs), after that its throttled to 256kbs. If Verizon wants to compete in the prepaid arena they should have LTE.

Bridge Data Packages

This is a minor thing, but Bridge Data packages are added on an as-needed basis, not on a per-month (recurring) basis as indicated in the report.

"Allset plan customers can add more data to their plan at any time. For example, customers can add 500MB (30-day expiration) to their Allset plan for $5 per month; 1GB (90-day expiration) for $10 per month; or 3GB (90-day expiration) for $20 per month."

The above passage should read:

"Allset plan customers can add more data to their plan at any time. For example, customers can add 500 MB to their Allset plan for $5 (30-day expiration); 1 GB for $10 (90-day expiration); or 3 GB for $20 (90-day expiration).

This is all shiny for Verizon, and I give them credit for jumping into the 21st ...
