Verizon Wireless prepaid phones are available through the Verizon Wireless website and Verizon Wireless retail stores. In addition, several major retailers stock Verizon Wireless prepaid phones, including Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy.
Verizon Wireless offers free overnight shipping on all prepaid phones and devices, making it a convenient option for shoppers ordering a particular model or who do not need to have a phone immediately. If it is preferable to shop for phones in person, Verizon has a large network of stores throughout the United States carrying its products. Retailers that are authorized by Verizon to sell their products include Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Radio Shack, Staples and Sears.
Another option for purchasing a prepaid Verizon Wireless cell phone is through a used phone retailer or auction site, such as Amazon or eBay. It is not necessary for a used phone to have been initially sold as a prepaid phone for it to be compatible with Verizon Wireless's prepaid service, as many devices are eligible to be switched to a prepaid plan even if they were sold for use on a contract basis. Not all Verizon phones are eligible for prepaid use, so it is advisable to consult Verizon's phone activation tool before purchasing a used device.
