A good start but......

Still too expensive. At&t Go phone offers the same $2 a day on the days used and includes text messages(international also). The pay by the minute plan is just 10 cents a minute (no daily fee also). The Go phones also come with $15-$50 credit not $10.
All of the majors offer a better prepaid product than Verizon. I'm still pretty convinced that they don't want to play in this field.

Geezus, Verizon--

--get with the program. Your poo stinks just like the other carriers'. So price accordingly.
Ah, but Verizon will cleverly market their dung as high grade fertilizer and charge a premium for it. Sort of like Pantech and Kyocera phones (when they've sold them).

Still expensive....

No matter how "competitive" VZW wants to stay in the prepaid market, they are by far still the most expensive one.

Look at T-mobile on the other hand, with $100 you get 1000minutes and last you the whole year and its good for people who needs it for emergency.
Way to go T-Mo!

How is $100 for 1,000 minutes which are good for a year a better deal than $80 for 2,000 minutes which are also good for a year?
With verizon prepaid, $100 reload also has a one year expiration date. On the 25cent per minute plan, that works out 400 minutes. Depending on where you live/travel, For emergency use only it might be better to have four hundred minutes on verizon's b...

All Wrong

The $.99-per-day plan has not changed. It still offers M2M and $.10 for all other calls, plus $.10 for all text messages, exactly as it did before.

What's changed is the $1.99 plan, which used to offer M2M, N&W, and $.05 for all other calls, plus $.05 for all text messages. Now it offers unlimited calling all the time, plus $.02 for all texts. So how has the price for texts increased, as claimed in the news post?

What's gone is the $3.99 plan, which used to offer the exact same thing as the NEW $1.99 plan, only with $.01 texts. They didn't raise the price of per-use messaging on the $3.99 plan, they simply eliminated the $3.99 plan and lowered the messaging rates on the $1.99 plan (from $.05 to $.02), along with adding unlimited talk...

What's wrong is arguing over who has the best pre-paid offering. Who cares? Since when are AT&T and Verizon seriously competing for these customers? You want to be the CEO who tells investors that he has lowered ARPU chasing after the pre-paid segm...

Also the $.99 one offers N&W again, whereas they didn't before
