Verizon has never really been great at offering the most extensive line of prepaid plan options to its customers, but according to some of Phandroid’s inside sources, the company is set to unveil a new prepaid plan soon. Starting March 1st, Verizon is reportedly adding a new $60 smartphone prepaid plan that will get customers unlimited talk, text and 2.5GB of data per month. This new plan is in addition to the $45 prepaid plan that gets users only 1GB of data per month. While this new plan isn’t officially confirmed yet, take a look at the image below for more proof:

If you’re still using a basic phone plan, the post also notes that Verizon will retire their current $35 and $45 basic plans, and will replace them with one plan to (hopefully) satisfy everybody. The new plan will be $35, and will give users unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data per month. For comparison, the old (current) $35 plan only gives users 500 minutes of talk per month.

This news comes after Big Red quietly increased their $45/month prepaid data allotment to 1GB. Additionally, Verizon has made some changes to their postpaid lineup, as they recently discounted most More Everything plans by $10.

Now, these new changes aren’t particularly groundbreaking, but they should be nice changes for prepaid customers looking to score some extra data for cheap.
