Verizon is gearing to revamp its old prepaid smartphone plan. It’s dropping the $80 unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of data plan in favor of an identical $70 2GB plan and a $60 500MB plan.
These new changes will take effect 4 days from now on February 1st.
Verizon says that users who are already enrolled in the $80 prepaid plan will be grandfathered in, but it doesn’t seem to make any sense to want to stay enrolled in the $80 plan if the $70 plan is exactly the same.
The $60 500MB plan doesn’t seem to be as appealing as the $70 plan since the average user uses around 1GB of data. So unless you’re a less-than-average user who plans on staying on WiFi most of the time… it’s best to skip this plan.
The Verizon Wireless prepaid plans are great for you if you don’t want to sign a 2-year contract, but still want Verizon’s excellent coverage. Also if you ever find yourself needing more data, you can always add on another GB of data for $20.00.
One last thing to note is that you will be limited to Verizon Wireless’s limited selection of prepaid smartphones, and that you will only have access to Verizon Wireless’s 3G network and not their 4G LTE network.
