Verizon Prepaid rolls out new options, including a $30 plan

Verizon Wireless on Friday introduced a number of changes to its prepaid offerings. The shakeup adds a new entry, low-cost entry point as well as extra options to help subscribers get more from the service. If you’re interested in a no-contract option, Verizon prepaid just became more interesting.

What’s New?

Starting on February 20, customers will find a new option that costs only $30 per month. For the money you’ll get unlimited talk and text with 500MB of high speed data. For just ten bucks more each month, though, you can receive 3GB of data. Here’s a look at the current rate plans from Verizon Prepaid.

Rate plans

  • 500MB for $30
  • 3 GB for $40
  • 7 GB for $50
  • 10 GB for $60
  • Unlimited for $75

Each of the aforementioned plans includes unlimited U.S. talk and text, Carryover data (for one month and on-time payments), mobile hotspot capabilities, and unlimited text 200+ international markets.

For those customers who sign up for the Prepaid Unlimited plan, they’ll also get unlimited mobile hotspot at 3G speeds (600kbps). What’s more, subscribers who travel to Mexico or Canada can purchase a Travel Pass. For $5 per day, it allows for unlimited talk and text and the standard data allotment. Verizon recommends that you add the Travel Pass to your account (through the My Verizon app) before traveling.

Verizon Prepaid is offering a $50 credit to customers who port their number in from another carrier. Simply sign up with a rate plan of $50 or higher and you’ll get a credit after two bill payments.
