Verizon offers offer $45 and $60 prepaid plans for smartphones and a $35 monthly prepaid plan for basic phones purchased new from Verizon. There is also a $45 monthly kit that includes one month of service for customers who already have a compatible cell phone.
Verizon prepaid cell phone packages for smartphones and basic phones provide customers with monthly unlimited talk and text services. Unlimited texting applies to texts sent to anyone on the Verizon network in the United States and to customers of participating carriers in Puerto Rico, Mexico and Canada.
The exact monthly data allowance depends on which prepaid package a customer purchases. The $45 package provides 1 GB and the $60 package provides 2.5 GB of data usage per month. Additional data can be purchased on an as-needed basis. Customers who enroll in auto-pay receive an additional 500 MB of data per month. Money can be added to prepaid accounts to purchase other "extras," including ringtones and apps.
All prepaid cell phone packages from Verizon offer customers cellular services with no annual contract, no credit checks and no activation fees. Shipping and handling charges for overnight delivery are free for all devices purchased from the official website.
