Verizon Wireless has officially unveiled a pair of new pre-paid smartphone plans. These new plans are available as of today and are being touted as “wallet-friendly.” That being said, the plans have arrived priced at $60 and $70 per month and they each include some data along with voice and messaging.
In fact, both of the plans include unlimited calling and text messaging. The $60 plan will give the subscriber 500MB of data and the $70 plans brings the data up to 2GB. Those choosing to go this route will be on a month-to-month basis, which really just means that you will not be signing a two-year commitment.
That bit sounds sounds nice, however that means you will need to bring, or purchase a smartphone. Unfortunately, if you go the purchase route, you will need to purchase that smartphone without any of the subsidies. Verizon Wireless has several handset options to choose from including more than a few that happen to be running Android.
Of course, if the cost of a new smartphone is an issue, Verizon Wireless has reminded users that they do not necessarily need a new smartphone. They have said that “no-longer-used smartphone sitting in a drawer at home can be activated on a prepaid plan with no annual contract.” Bottom line here, regardless of whether you have an old phone or decide to purchase something new — Verizon Wireless now has two new pre-paid plans available.
