Verizon Wireless has increased the amount of data included with its prepaid smartphone plans:
- The $45 plan's data allowance goes from 1 GB (2 GB with auto pay) to 2 GB (3 GB with auto pay).
- The $60 plan gets bumped up from 3 GB (4 GB with auto pay) to 5 GB (6 GB with auto pay).
Data on Verizon Prepaid plans is hard capped. When you use up your data allowance, data stops until the plan renews. If this happens you can buy more data:
- 500 MB good for 30 days for $5
- 1 GB good for 90 days for $10
- 3 GB good for 90 days $20.
There are no changes to Verizon's $30 Smartphone plan which includes unlimited talk and messaging and unlimited texting to Mexico, Puerto Rico and Canada, but no data. The $15 and $30 plans for basic phones are also unchanged.
