Verizon unveils new pre-paid plans ranging from $30 to $60
Verizon has just announced three new plans that aim to give users more control over their mobile service. These prepaid plans may appeal to users who are suspicious of contracts or subscriptions, and budget-conscious users will probably be drawn to the wi-fi-data-only $30 per month plan. These plans go live on May 15, and for the first time, Verizon is offering unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada on a pre-paid plan (but only for the $60 one).
All three tiers enjoy unlimited talk in the US and unlimited text to the US, Mexico, and Canada. If you really need to chat vocally with your friends down south or up north, you can tack on a thousand minutes of talk to Mexico and Canada to any of these plans for an extra 10 bucks per month. On the $45 and $60 plans, Verizon will also throw in an extra gig of data if you sign up for automatic payments. No tethering, however.
These plans may represent Verizon’s attempts to compete with the likes of T-Mobile, as the scrappy “Un-carrier” has been winning users over with similar, no-nonsense payment models. To check out these new plans before they go live, head over to Verizon’s news center or their pre-paid plan landing page. Are these plans appealing to you as a mobile user, or would you rather stick with what you’ve got? Let us know your opinion in the comments below!
