Verizon Prepaid unveils New $50 5 GB and $70 10 GB Walmart Exclusive Plans

verizon-new-plans
A number of users earlier noted that Verizon Wireless added a couple of new plans on their MyVerizon app. Based on posts under a HowardForums thread, users commented that they noticed some changes on their plan options:

New Plans: 
  • $50 - includes 5GB with unlimited talk and text, Always-on data (128k throttle after 5GB) and Carryover Data.
  • $70 - includes 10GB with unlimited talk and text, Always-on data (128k throttle after 10GB) and Carryover Data.
Carryover Data means that at the end of a plan month unused data rolls to the next month. Rollover data must be used within 30 days or it's lost.

Both new plans include unlimited international texting. The $70 plan also includes unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada. There are no changes to the $30/no data and $45/2GB plans which are still available. The $60 5GB plan is still available to users who are not eligible for the 5GB for $50 promotion.

Forum users have noted that the new plans might only be available with phones or SIM cards purchased at Walmart. 

Updated 10/20:  Displays promoting the new plans have been spotted in Walmart stores. The signs confirm that 5 GB for $50 and $10 GB for $70 plans are a limited time offer that's only available with Verizon Prepaid SIMs or phones purchased from a Walmart store or Walmart.com.

  3. Carryover data, What's always on data mean then?

    1. Always on data is unlimited 128 Kbps data after the first 5 or 10 GB is used.

  4. So they lowered the 5gb plan by $10..let's hear the cricket clan cry about Verizon's "crazy selfish" prices!

    1. I'm not sure what you mean? I'm in the cricket clan.

      And this offering from Verizon is actually starting to look like decent competition.

      If I had to leave Cricket, these Verizon plans would be good options. Less data, but more coverage.

      A lot better than going to boost or Metro PCS, where the prices are lower but I would hardly ever be able to use the phone due to the poor coverage from both of those.

      The best network, and prices that are starting to look competitive. I hope this provides pressure on the others.

  5. Is auto-pay gets 1GB extra? Also, $70 position is awkward.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think auto pay customers will probably get the 1 GB like they do on current plans. But until Verizon or an auto-pay customer confirms it no one knows for sure.

    1. On prepaid? Depends where you buy your airtime from.

  7. So the 2GB plan is only $5 cheaper than the 5GB plan. What are they thinking?

    ReplyDelete

    1. "Thank God it costs use less than $5 to give them an extra 3GB"

  8. Verizon prepaid is not throttled right? I'm on Boom Mobile right now on the $45 a month plan. I may switch, as I think an extra $5 (plux taxes) is worth carryover data and not-throttled (5mbit) data.

    I've had nothing but good experiences with Boom Mobile though, when I call them I get someone right away and they are extremely helpful, but that 5mbit throttle is a bummer when you actually want to download anything of any real size.

    1. Verizon Prepaid high speed data is not throttled.

    2. Yep. I could livw with throttled speeby buy more hard data caps form me.

    3. Tell me more about your throttled speeby....

  9. Couldn't gives us 6GB of data Like At&t GoPhone? Smh. They're finally getting there though, S L O W L Y

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you enable autopay, you get an additional 1GB of data, making it $50 for 6GB, which is $5 cheaper than GoPhone w/ autopay discount ($55).

      Delete
    2. Yes but they charge you tax when you use Auto Pay.Just give us the 6GB to begin with!!!

      Delete
    3. its not really a $5 discount.(if they charge you tax after they take off the $5). That's why i never used auto pay when i had ATT'S GoPhone

  10. Still not compelling enough for me to give up MetroPCS. This is yet another fail from a company that is schizophrenic about prepaid.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's on a good mobile network. MetroPCS isn't yet (and has bad coverage in most states). That's very compelling.

      Delete
  11. A 5GB $50 plan on Verizon Prepaid means there will be a 5GB $50 plan on AT&T GoPhone. It's only a matter of time. Which means that the 5GB plans on both GoPhone and Cricket will be the same price unless Cricket changes their plans.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Still way too much. $45 unlimited on Boost. $60 unlimited on Metro. Sprint $60 for unlimited and you get Verizon roaming and international. $65 unlimited on Cricket. Heck, even Total Wireless would get you nearly 18GB for $75.

    Who the heck would pay $70 to Verizon for 10GB and no roaming?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Verizon is so extensive that roaming matters less on it than any other network.

      It's a lot better than Boost and MetroPCS, so the higher cost evens out.

      Cricket and Total and Gophone are competitors to this.

  13. But...but...this goes directly against that "we'll let MVNOs act as our prepaid arm" comment a C-level exec made earlier this year. Idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Meanwhile, I am getting the same thing on ringplus for free. Glad I switched from Verizon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. How are you getting Verizon's network for free with RingPlus? I would definitely be interested in that plan so appreciate the information (I can't see any of the free plans when I go to their website, just a generic activations are down message)

      Delete
    2. You can't. The network for ringplus is a fraction of the size of the network for Verizon. You get what you pay for.

  15. These (2) New plans are currently only available to Verizon Prepaid customers who purchase or purchased a Verizon BYOD 4FF SIM Card Kit FROM Wal-mart Stores or online at Walmart.com. Walmart Exclusive

    1. I believe that's true, but is that a quote from somewhere online? Where? Google can't find it.

      Delete
    2. No quote anywhere, maybe so. But there is a photo on another MVNO website that clearly shows a Walmart Electronics Department showing the $50 and $70 price point Plans WITH the typical - Only At Walmart* blue banner beneath the (2) Wal-Mart Exclusive Offers. If you look real close you can read that it is also mentions CarryOver data for 1 month. This Walmart Exclusive Offer ALSO include Unlimited International Text(countries unknown)(gotta look real close), whereas the the current Verizon Prepaid plans offer unlimited text to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

    3. I just got a SIM from Best Buy. So would buying the SIM from Walmart and calling to activate it work 1-866-893-7723? Do you have the option to get the plan from the phone prompts, as I don't have nor want a MyVerizon account. Or to get the WalMart plans you have to go throught he MyVerizon App to see them?

  16. Anybody know work round with $5 500 mb or 1 GB of data only...Verizon prepaid

    1. Throttled, no roaming, + tax & America Movil infamous customer circus disservice.

      Delete
  18. "Throttled, no roaming, + tax & America Movil infamous customer circus disservice."

    1) throttled but fast enough to play video, so the throttling doesn't mean anything.

    2) It's Verizon, the best and biggest. There's hardly anywhere you'd need to roam.

    3) Movil CS is no better or worse on average... Par for the course, for carriers.

    So... The only valid criticism is "tax".

    1. Movil customer disservice is the absolute worst, the whole company is based on ripping off customers and treating them maliciously. Any wise person will never do business with them, they make Comcast CS seem award winningly great.

      Throttled is still less for your money and maybe you don't care about roaming but several accounts I admin. would be 0 signal where they are most of the day without it, been there, done that.

      It may work for you now but eventually having a Movil service will bite you in the a$$ & cause headache and loss of $ and maybe loss of your phone #. Good Luck

    2. On Verizon Prepaid, after you use up your data allotment, you get unlimited 128Kbps. On Straight Talk, you get half the speed, 64Kbps.

  19. I purchased a Moto E kit from Walmart and moved my SIM to a Droid Maxx 2. The plans available to me in the app are the $30 WiFi plan and the $60 5GB plan. I wouldn't mind bumping up to the 5GB for $50 tier if it becomes available since I use my hotspot from time to time causing me to need add-on data.

    1. Because your SIM came from a phone purchased at Walmart, I think you should be eligible for the $50 5 GB plan. If I were you I'd try calling Verizon Prepaid CS and ask if you can be switched to the new plan.

  21. Virgin Mobile has that for $35. I'm on it now. You don't really need carry-over data if you have "always on" data.
