Verizon adds new tier to its pre-paid line up with 2GB of high-speed data
After surprising the U.S. wireless industry by announcing an unlimited plan for postpaid customers last week, Verizon is about to add a new, low-cost tier to its pre-paid plans. For $40 a month, Verizon is offering pre-paid subscribers unlimited talk, text and 2GB of high-speed data. Once that amount has been consumed, the Always-On Data feature allows data to be received at 128 kbps for the remainder of the month. The 2GB prepaid plan fills a spot on the bottom of Big Red's lineup, and becomes available starting tomorrow.

This means that beginning on Tuesday, Verizon customers will be able to choose a pre-paid plan that comes with 2GB ($40 a month), 5GB ($50) or 10GB ($70) of high-speed data. Each plan includes Always-On Data, unlimited international text to more than 200 countries, and the high-speed data carry forward. The latter feature allows those who pay on time, to carry forward any leftover high-speed data to use during the following month.

Those who do not require a data plan can purchase a basic setup that includes unlimited talk and text for $30 a month. If interested in the carrier's pre-paid offerings, visit your local Verizon store, or go online and head to the carrier's website at

How does the network access of prepaid customer compare to postpaid customers on Verizon? Is it 100% IDENTICAL???

I wish someone would offer this plan for $30 no hidden fees. Then I could take my family of the family plan and let them pay their own bill.

In about a month, Selectel will have new plans. They're switching to the verizon prepaid platform (up until now it was postpaid) so plans and prices should be better/cheaper than what you might currently see on their website

Your advertisements are absolutely disgusting. I used Chrome without Adblock to see how it would be so I could support the site, but the pop-ups to install extensions literally turned my computer screen black, forcing me to install. It's really no wonder why Disconnect includes this website in the Malvertising filter list.

This is the only website I use that bombards me with fake Facebook contest pop-ups as well as pop-ups claiming that my phone has a virus/has been blocked by the government due to suspicious activity. I've even turned ad-blocker off and tested it. Androidpolice, Macrumors, 9to5mac, 9to5google, Engadget, etc...none of them give me any sort of intrusive ad whatsoever. But Phonearena....boy oh boy, phonearena. Without adblockers, I would most certainly never visit this site again.

I use ghostery to help with some of these issues. It helps.

Dang, is it just me or is Verizon really turning pro consumer?
