Verizon Unleashed prepaid plan

It's just been a Verizon kind of day, hasn't it? After confirmation that one-year contracts will soon be going the way of the Dodo as well as news of a 16GB XOOM and upcoming Android release dates, a new leak has shown that Big Red's cooking up something big for all of its pre-paid customers. According to a document sent over the Droid-Life, Verizon is planning to offer a new "Unleashed" pre-paid plan that will offer unlimited talk, text, and mobile web (likely for feature phones), all for only $50 per month. Smartphone users interested in the plan will still need to fork over $30/month for data.

This new Unleashed plan is pretty attractive and could be an incentive for a lot of folks to go pre-paid once April 17th rolls around and Verizon stops offering one-year contracts. There's no word on exactly when, or if, this new plan will be made available to us common folk, but we'll be sure to let you know when more info is available. How does a $50 unlimited pre-paid ($80 for unlimited smartphone data) sound to all of you?

Justin Jones
Justin Jones I get unlimited everything on a smartphone for $60 after tax with Sprint. Why would I downgrade?
John R Hoffman Jr
John R Hoffman Jr IF they drop the 1 year contract then they should drop the price for the 2 year contracts, other companies are offering lower rates, Verizon should either stay competitive or offer better rates to stay ahead of the rest.
Gil Batzri
Gil Batzri Who talks on the phone? 250 min. Unlimited text and Data for $50 is the killer app. Not unlimited voice. The scale tipped to data last last year.
Marti Ruiz

Jonathan Narine

Marc Hill Depends
Justcallme Ren
Justcallme Ren I would in a heartbeat. I think actually 50 is very fair for a big carrier in the prepaid department. If they allowed other verizon handsets to be used then that would be king. They are already offering androids on prepaid now (check the website) that tell you u have to have a data package. Even if it was 10 dollars extra for maybe a gig or 2 a month. thats not bad at all. I mean if you are seriously doing hardcore streaming or web browsing on a phone, use your computer. I mean most people use their data for social networking and email and maybe an occasional yotube video or something. I would tell V to let that plan roll and fast.

James Gehm III
James Gehm III It would put them back into competition with the prepaid plans if they did this, because with the other carriers out there with similar plans are kinda leaving Verizon prepaid in the dust with ATT having a unlimited talk and text for 60, Net 10 has 50, and Straight talk is 45 and that includes data. I think they need to do somthing similar to keep competitive.
