LG Cosmos Verizon Unleashed

Earlier this month, we clued you in to a new Verizon pre-paid plan called "Unleashed" that offers unlimited talk, text, and mobile web for just $50 each month. Details outside of pricing, like what kind of handsets can be used with Unleashed, were still sparse then, but thankfully some kind leaksters have filled in some of the holes for us. Whenever Verizon's Unleashed plan does go live, interested parties can expect to choose from a least a few different phones to use with the pre-paid offering: the horizontal-sliding LG Cosmos for $39.99, the portrait QWERTY-packing Pantech Caper for $79.99, or the LG Accolade, a basic flip phone, for $79.99, as well.

If true, the pricing for the LG Cosmos seems pretty awesome, although it's kind of strange that that device is only $40 while the Accolade, which is about as basic a flip phone as one could find, reportedly sports an $80 price tag. Thankfully, if Unleashed devices are rolling into Best Buys already, we should be hearing the official word on pricing and plan availability from Verizon soon. Stay tuned.

Joe Jones This is such a good deal. Boost Mobile is going to die very quickly.

Gabby Whitener Happy Easter all my fb family and friends may the peace of god be with u all
Anthony Pina Aguilar
Anthony Pina Aguilar Boost mobile, muy bueno!!!
Adam Knutson
Adam Knutson I know that I am not on prepaid at all, by if you break down my monthly bill that's more than I pay for each of my lines for unlimited. And I have an Android and a pre plus
Craig Murphy
Craig Murphy I agree with Benjamin. Better off going to Boost Mobile and getting an entry level Android Phone and pay the same monthly charges.
Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla The reason this plan is so cheap is because you can only get POS phones that won't use the internet a lot. It's a great deal for dumb phone users.
Gladys Devant
Gladys Devant @Tiffany, actually Straight Talk uses Verizon for the CDMA phones and AT&T and T-Mobile for the GSM phones.
Brad Freeman
Brad Freeman Never heard of it. Since it's vzw its probably overpriced. Why not get straight talk cause it uses the same network and it's cheaper

Kevin Twitch Booker Where can I get more information on this?

Hima Bichali Basically what Jerimiah said.
Jerimiah Reece
Jerimiah Reece So if I buy a POS phone, I can get unlimited everything for $50 a month. But if I spend $200 or more on a Smartphone, sign a 2 year contract (after being a customer for YEARS) I get raped for $120 a month in plan fees?
Tiffany Heuberger
Tiffany Heuberger @Joni, actually, Straight Talk uses T-Mobile's network for their services, not Verizon.
Joni Sorsen
Joni Sorsen also Straight Talk has a plan for $45 a month and uses Verizon.
Joni Sorsen
Joni Sorsen why can't we get that deal with the verizon phone we already have and if we are already using a prepaid plan. I'm n ot buying a new phone to get this plan.
Carrie Abbott
Carrie Abbott If I can buy a smartphone at retail and use it on the $50 plan, that might actually be heaven. But I doubt they'll allow that.
