Verizon today expanded its already-large array of prepaid plan options with a data-centric smartphone option. For $80/month, the new plan includes 1 GB of data, plus unlimited messaging and voice minutes. After reaching 1 GB of data in a one-month period, users can buy additional data for $0.05/MB. The plan is available exclusively with the Samsung Illusion, an affordable Android phone with a curved glass display. The new plan will be available starting May 1st. The prepaid version of the Illusion phone will cost $170. Verizon's existing prepaid smartphone options include unlimited messaging and data - but limited peak voice minutes - starting at $95/month. The company also introduced three prepaid plan options for its Jetpack mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, including a $60/month plan that includes 3 GB of data.

Page Plus

Page Plus has the same plan for $55. If Verizon put that same phone on there prepaid unleashed plan then that would be something.
Hey Verizon, I got two words regarding that plan:

Good luck.

You Can Deal With This...

...or you can pay T-Mobile $70, get the same unlimited talk and text, along with 5 GB of data, and use any phone in their lineup. Not a great deal here, unless Verizon is aiming this plan solely at the minuscule portion of the population that A) isn't covered by T-Mobile's footprint and B) wants to overpay for something they can get with Page Plus.

One phone (with a 320 by 480 screen), and one plan. You're a visionary, Verizon. The rest of the industry will no doubt soon follow in your intrepid footsteps.
