Verizon Walmart Exclusive Prepaid Plans Now With More Data


verizon-walmart-exclusive-more-data
Last month, Verizon partnered with Walmart as they launched a series of prepaid plans exclusive to Walmart customers. At the time it was launched, Verizon included a couple of plans as options for users to choose from: the $50/month plan that came with 5GB of data and the $70/month plan with 10GB of data and international calls to Mexico and Canada. The two plans also included unlimited talk, text and international text with data carryover for one billing cycle.

Ever since then, Verizon has added a couple of prepaid plans to its own roster of options. The new plans it added are somewhat similar to the ones it exclusively offered to Walmart customers.

A few days ago, a Reddit user noticed that both Verizon and Walmart have already increased the data allotment included on the Walmart exclusive prepaid plans. Instead of offering 5GB and 10GB of data, the plans now come with 7GB and 12GB, respectively. No other changes were made to data carryover and international talk (for $70 plan) and text.

As of this writing, the plan is not advertised on Walmart's website. If you are interested in this plan, you will have to go to their store to purchase it.

  1. I did get the exclusive but it was not automatic. I had to request it via chat with CS. I had to take a picture of the packaging because the two did not believe me.

  2. They should drop the $70 plan to $60 and the $50 plan to $45. And they should bring BACK the 1G of free data with auto pay.Verizon Prepaid has come a long way from what they use to offer. Not quite there yet.

    1. If they did what you asked, Sprint and T-Mobile would have no reason to exist at all except for the most isolated and ignorant customers.

  6. Part of the reason why I like prepaid is because of the lack of "games" you have to play with the carrier (no contracts, low price, etc). I recently switched to Verizon's $50 5GB plan and seeing these other plans be "exclusive" really rubs me the wrong way. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get the best price on a prepaid plan...

    For example, with Cricket, anyone can switch to their promotional 8GB $50 plan. You don't have to go to a store, get a special sim, etc. You just switch to the plan.

      You have unrealistic expectations, Powers. Welcome back to reality. Here is reality, consumers OFTEN are asked to jump hoops and various other circus tricks to get our carrot! It would be nice if it weren't that way, but then again, what fun would it be? Half the fun of getting a deal is the pursuit of it.

  7. That's quite a way from the $50 500MB Verizon Prepaid Plan a few years ago.

    I remember going to the Verizon Store and the clerk there was doing everything possible for my mom not to switch to prepaid. The funny part was her pulling out her calculator and throwing out numbers why it was best if my mom remained in her contact plan.

    My mom ended up paying $20 less and went from Limited Minutes to Unlimited Talk/Text. The 500 MB of data was enough for her.

    So yes its incredible to 500 MB to 7GB today.

    1. If you have an unlocked Verizon compatible phone, then you can just buy a Verizon Prepaid SIM at Walmart and get the Walmart plan. However, if you have a Verizon Prepaid phone, I'm not sure switching out the SIM is an option.

  11. The 7GB of data is a hard cap?

    1. It's a soft cap, unlimited 128 Kbps after 7 GB.

  12. Are you able to use internet while making a phone call on Verizon Prepaid?

    Also, would porting a number from Tracfone be easy?

    1. Simultaneous voice and data on the Verizon network requires either being connected to Wi-Fi or using VoLTE for the call.

      Delete
    2. There are a few phones that have the right antennas to handle voice and Internet simultaneously without WiFi or VoLTE.

      Delete
    3. True, but not any current Verizon phones, I believe that the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4 are the newest Verizon phones with the separate CDMA and LTE radios that are necessary to support simultaneous voice and data without VoLTE or LTE.

  13. If you mean Wi-Fi calling yes. You just need to have a phone that is capable of it on Verizons network.

    I find porting to be easier when you activate/start your service off with a new Verizon number, whatever they give you. Then once everything is working, you can go through the auto phone prompts and port your number without needing a customer service rep to do it for you. Your number should be ported within 24 hours.

  14. Thank you for advice on porting #. But I was referring to using internet while on a phone call to look something up, send MMS while talking, comment on twitter while talking on phone, etc.

  15. I'd be really happy if Walmart had offered a $30 plan with 1GB of data. I bought a Verizon prepaid phone in September and got the now discontinued $30 No Data plan. Almost everyone else has a plan with some data for ~$30. Not Verizon! It's also 3G, no HD Voice! Oh well, if Verizon loses enough customers, they might become more generous!

    1. Take a look at switching over to Boom once your phone is whirlisted for Verizon MVNO service.
