Verizon's new, cheaper pre-paid plans
The cheaper option is the $60 per month plan, which includes unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data. Not bad, not bad, but the slightly more expensive plan is much better. For $70 a month, you'll get unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data!
By the way, subscribing to e pre-paid plan might be better if you have an old compatible device, rather than buy a new one, because Big Red's current selection of pre-paid handsets isn't anything to write home about.
Verizon's previous pre-paid plan was $80 a month for unlimited talk, text and a gig of data.

That's not what i called cheap. Just buy a CDMA STRAIGHT TALK PHONE runs off Verizon and pay 45$ a month with unlimited. how's this cheap?

Except Straight Talk is straight garbage. Maybe your experience is better but if you go over 100mb a day or 2GB a month they disable you. Nice... 100mb a day is really easy to go over.
It sounds like a great deal maybe I'm wrong but from all I've read a lot of people have had issues.

It's too bad that straight talk only has access to a portion of Verizon wireless' towers and good luck getting any customer service

Both wrong, tmobile has the best prepaids. $70 a month unlimited everything with 4g data no throttling. Or $30 a month 100min of talk, unlimited text + 3g data and 5gb of 4g data.

Virgin mobiles unlimited wimax data, unlimited text, and 100 mins for $35 is mentionable. Plus vm has some decent devices for cheap like the sgs2 and evo3d.

I'm a Verizon user and know this is a great deal. I'm just waiting for T-Mobile LTE :)

Tmobile lte is coming very soon, don't worry there about to start switching the lte network on.

PagePlus provides the best Verizon pre-paid option hands down. Got my fiance, mom and dad all on PagePlus via KittyWireless to handle the pre-paid aspect of it.
1200min/3000text/250MB for $29.95/mon. no taxes or fees
Unlimited Talk/Text/2GB for $55.00/mon. no taxes or fees
Unlimited Talk/Text/5GB for $69.95/mon. no taxes or fees
If you can get over Kitty's mid 90's website you can save some serious money yearly with Verizon's 3G network. All three have been happy with rooted HTC Incredibles.

With Verizon, there is no such thing as cheaper

Verizon don't deal with broke people. especially when people in general have not loyalty to phone brands or phone companies. so they will make their prices what they have to. don't plan too many trips with your t mobile outside of the city though.

If you want smoking fast LTE almost everywhere you go with nationwide coverage even in the sticks, you got to pay. TMobile might be cheaper but their coverage is horrible compared to big red. Id rather pay a few bucks extra and actually be able to use my phone. Where I live this is a pretty decent deal.

a few extra bucks? On a 2 year contract your spending $1500+ more to get similar stuff from a $30 tmobile plan. Plus the tmobile monthly 4g is GSM and no contract so if you don't like your phone selling it and buying a new one isn't a problem.
