Verizon Adds New $30 Prepaid Unlimited Plan, Makes Other Announcements

verizon-new-$30-prepaid-unlimited-plan
Verizon has announced a new plan for its prepaid users.

Starting February 20, customers will be able to enjoy the new Verizon Prepaid Unlimited plan. This plan includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and 500 MB of data for only $30 per month.

This new plan joins in on the roster of other prepaid plans:

  • $30/month - includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and 500 MB of data (NEW)
  • $40/month - includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and 3GB of data
  • $50/month - includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and 7GB of data
  • $60/month - includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and 10GB of data
  • $75/month - includes unlimited U.S. talk, text, and unlimited data

These plans also include mobile hotspot, carryover data for one month with on-time payment, and unlimited text to over 200 international destinations. If you require more data to be added onto the plan, you can do so any time with the My Verizon App. You can also use the app to switch to a different plan.

Apart from the new plan, Verizon announced that Travel Pass is now available for Prepaid subscribers. For $5 per day, you can use your talk, text, and data plan while you travel to Mexico and Canada. Since you only get charged for the days you use it, you won't have to worry about incurring excessively high rates while you're away. If you plan on using this on your next trip, you simply need to add the plan to your account via the app.

Verizon's last announcement today lets you enjoy a $50 credit when you decide to switch to a $50 plan or higher. Port-in is required so that the credit will be applied after two monthly plan payments. This offer is available for a limited time only.

  1. Does it slow down to 2g after the 500mb runs out?

    1. It looks like it might not. Verizon press release says "For $30 per month, you get unlimited U.S. talk, text and 500 MB of data." There's no mention of unlimited 2G. We won't know for sure until Verizon updates their prepaid plans page.

    2. I just chatted with a representative and she said it'll be just like the other prepaid plans. After 500 MB your speed will be slower for the rest of the month but you'll still have data.

    3. VZW PP: Once high-speed data allowance is used, 128 kbps speeds for the rest of the month. In times of congestion your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic.

  2. Prepaid Family Account add a line discount? Maybe a $5 off 2nd line like AT&T PREPAID. Wondering if there might be a way to throw in the CallingMart discount on top of it with a Family Account.

    1. No Prepaid Family Discount available with the new $30 VZWPP Plan

  3. It will be interesting to see if/how AT&T responds; it seems the AT&T Prepaid $30/mo. plan is now the most expensive monthly plan of the unlimited carrier offerings with no data. (The AT&T Prepaid plan with 1 GB of high speed data is only $30/mo. when signing up for autopay.)

    Speaking of AT&T, at the other end of the scale I see they've relaunched "unlimited high speed" data in a new plan at $85/mo. with 6 GB of mobile hotspot. It's $75/mo. with autopay.

  4. Verizon Prepaid is behind UDP right? Some HOFO users reported as miserableness.

    1. UDP right?
      HOTO users?
      What does UDP & HOFO mean?

      Delete
    2. UDP - I think anonymous means "Unlimited Data Plan" although "User Datagram Protocol" is the more usual meaning.

  5. The $75 unlimited plan used to be $80. Also the new $75 unlimited plan provides unlimited 3g 600mbps hotspot which is a better deal than the new boost mobile $60 plan with 20gb hotspot because boost mobile hot-spot speeds can be less than 600mbps in fringe reception areas

    1. Unlimited Data Plan

      Delete
    2. I have no idea. Verizon wasn't the first to have unlimited data plans.

    3. Good to have you feeling well enough to post Dennis! BTW, I am eagerly awaiting your analysis of the net adds by carrier for 2017.

  7. An entire 1/2 GB for $30/month
    I am underwhelmed
    $20 = Unlimited talk/text
    $10 = 1/2 GB data ($20/GB) ???
    You can do better than this Verizon!

    Is Verizon's prepaid cellular phone data "prioritized" ahead of other prepaid MVNO's or is it clumped in the de-prioritized bucket with TracFone, TW & the like?

  8. I think Verizon is getting ready to get rid of their 2G network. They haven't had a basic plan on their site for over a month now. Also they don't have any basic phones on their site either. They have flip LTE phones now. I have had Verizon prepaid for 8 years it works well for me.

  9. I think another plan should be attempted, $20 UTT and 2g speeds unlimited.
    Take away $10 and take away all of the 4G.

  10. Geeez..for 30 bucks on PureTalk(att mvno) I get 3gb..and its all high speed not slowed like Cricket.. Not hard capped either (128) Plus that doesn't include the discounts you get for multiple lines if you have them..US customer services too..Have had them for many years..Very satisfied..My only negative..Bring your own ph.Their ph selection and prices are poor..And i dont have to put up with Big Reds disrespectful (better than everyone else) sales and service reps anymore..

    1. I agree with the OP. Pure TalkUSA is the best overall AT&T MVNO, IMO. They are an Apple Partner like Consumer Cellular (which we have used). PureTalk helped us free a mobile number trapped at AirVoice when FreedomPop's automation garbled the port request; they and Sprint would not fix it. Now we get LTE on iPhone (vs HSPA+) and regular MMS works. Plus we save $10/month compared to equivalent AirVoice plan.
