Verizon to expand its "Unleashed" $50 unlimited prepaid plan
posted by Michael H. / Sep 13, 2011, 7:12 PM
Currently, a monthly unlimited voice, text and web plan from Verizon could cost as much as $130, but the Unleashed plan would be only $50 per month. A Verizon spokesperson said that the company is looking to offer plans that fit the needs of a greater number of customers. Given that many people are interested in prepaid plans without contracts, prepaid options from MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile, or even AT&T's GoPhone are looking better and better.
Of course, until now Verizon's phone options on the Unleashed plan have been just feature phones. Given the Android options from MetroPCS, we're hoping that Verizon is going to be adding some smartphones to the mix. The Unleashed plan will be available in Verizon stores, Walmart, Target and Best Buy.

There are three simple elements for a successful prepaid plan: great selection of handsets, great service, and great plan features all at a fair price. The current selection of handsets sucketh. Also, it's clear based on the feedback on the trial run, Verizon is not offerring a "truly" unlimited services as it has caveats.

Curious: if you already have a VZW-branded CDMA smartphone, can you use it with this plan or do you HAVE to use the phones they list?

I have Verizon's current prepaid monthly plan activated on a Xperia Play so i'm sure it's possible

I heard about this from my supervisor. We'll be getting it soon. They didn't say which phones exactly, so we won't find out till the boxes come. If you go with this plan, don't expect the regular Verizon internet speeds, because it'll more than likely be less than 3G. But, the coverage map will be the same, regardless.
