Verizon Wireless Rehashes Prepaid Plans
Verizon Wireless has adjusted its selection of prepaid service plans for smartphones, basic phones, and data devices. Verizon now offers three plans to smartphones. The least expensive option, $30 per month, includes unlimited voice/text, but no wireless data — Verizon expects customers of this plan to access data via WiFi only. Verizon is also offering $45 and $60 prepaid smartphone plans that include 1GB and 3GB of data, respectively. Basic phones have two options: The $15 plan buys 300 talk/text (combined) and unlimited data, while the $30 plan buys unlimited talk/text and data. Last, Verizon now offers data devices (tablets, hotspots) weekly, monthly, and bi-monthly options. Verizon prepaid customers can opt to pay $15 for a week's worth of access to 500MB of LTE 4G data, or $20 for a month's worth of access to 1GB of data. The bi-monthly options cost $35 for 2GB, $60 for 5GB, and $100 for 10GB. The bi-monthly plans allow customers to access those data allotments over a two-month period. Verizon's new prepaid plans go into effect today.
