Verizon raises the amount of data its pre-paid smartphone plans offer starting May 15th12
If you don't agree to the use of auto pay, the amount of data for each tier is reduced by 1GB. In that case, the $45 plan will give you 2GB of data, while the $60 plan provides you with 5GB. That still represents a bump in data for Verizon's pre-paid subscribers.
Both plans will give users unlimited talk in the U.S. and unlimited text to the U.S., Mexico and Canada. The $60 tier includes unlimited calls to Mexico and Canada. If you don't need a cellular connection, you can pay $30 a month for a Wi-Fi only plan. And if you have a basic phone, Verizon's pre-paid offer is $30 a month for unlimited talk, text and mobile web. Or, $15 a month buys you any combination of talk and text equaling 300 minutes, and unlimited mobile web.
