If you’re on the Verizon network, and want to keep that unlimited data plan, we have good news. Three of their more popular handsets have been discounted by about $100, giving you extra incentive to purchase your device outright. The deals aren’t node as being Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, either, so we’re not sure if this is a temporary markdown, or permanent.
The LG G2 and HTC One Max have been knocked down to $500, and the DROID Ultra has been dropped to $450. Both pricing schedules are for off-contract devices, meaning you can upgrade without changing your plan. You could also purchase the device and go prepaid, which often saves quite a bit of money.
The $70/month plan with Verizon prepaid offers unlimited calling, texting, and MMS messaging with 4GB data. With prepaid, there is no credit check, and no suspect charges on your monthly bill. If 4GB is a bit much, you can get 2GB data monthly for $60.
Those pricing schemes are in line with Verizon’s Shared Everything plans, thought here are no other fees associated. No taxes, and no per line access fees. With prepaid, you end up saving over $40 month, meaning that after a year or so you end up ahead. Rather than $2,640+ over two years with a shared everything plan, you spend a flat $2,180 going prepaid — phone and all.
Of course, if you’re already a Verizon customer with unlimited data, you know that an upgrade with a new contract will probably void that plan and put you into a new shared data plan. Either way, these are very decent deals on three really good phones. We hope Verizon customers jump on this one.
