Verizon prepaid Basic Plan for $35/month now available
Verizon Wireless has just made its new $35 a month prepaid Basic Plan available on its website. Verizon prepaid Basic Plan includes 500 anytime minutes, unlimited messaging (text and picture) and unlimited mobile web browsing. Also, mobile to mobile calling (with Verizon customers) is not included in this new feature plan.
When users spend allowed minutes, a pay-as-you-go rate per minute, 25 cents, would apply. Also, at the time of the plan renewal, if there is no enough funds on users’ account for monthly plan renewal, they will be charged pay-as-you-go rates, 25 cents per minute, 20 cents per text, 25 cents per picture or video messaging and 99 cents for Mobile Web.
The leaked image also showed that new customers who purchase and activate new Verizon feature phone on this plan will receive a $10 airtime credit ones the new phone is activated.
If Verizon feature phone users find 500 minutes per month insufficient, they can switch to the $50 Basic Plan. The $50 feature phone plan includes unlimited talk, text and unlimited mobile web browsing.
Verizon has been moving in the right direction as far as prepaid is concerned. The company has recently discontinued its $80 smartphone plan and replaced it with a more affordable new $60 and $70 smartphone plans. These two smartphone monthly plans include unlimited talk, unlimited text messaging and 500 MB and 2 GB of Verizon’s 3G data, respectively. Until today, Verizon’s prepaid customers who don’t use smartphones could only choose from $50 Basic Plan with everything unlimited. However, users who don’t talk much in a month but mostly enjoy texting and were paying up to now for something they haven’t used can lower their monthly bill for $15 per month by choosing new Verizon prepaid Basic Plan for $35 per month.
