Verizon recently refreshed its prepaid offerings, a move that includes the debut of a $30 smartphone plan.
Verizon’s new $30 prepaid smartphone plan includes unlimited talk and text, but no cellular data. Customers on this plan must rely on Wi-Fi to get their data, and Verizon says that they can’t buy any data package add-ons, either. Other prepaid smartphone plans include a $45 per month plan with unlimited talk and text and 1GB of cellular data, or a $60 plan with unlimited talk and text and 3GB of data.
It’s kind of strange to think about buying a smartphone plan without any data, but at $30 per month, it’s a super-cheap option if you’re are around Wi-Fi all of the time or just plain don’t think you’ll need cellular data while you’re out and about. That’s unimaginable for most of us, but hey, some really light data users may settle for having no cellular data in exchange for a cheap Verizon plan.
Moving on, basic phone customers have two prepaid plans to choose from. The $15 per month option includes up to 300 combined minutes and messages as well as unlimited data, while the $30 per month plan offers unlimited everything.
Finally, Verizon offers the same data device plans that it launched in early October. Those offer 500MB of data for $15 per week, 1GB for $20 per month, 2GB for $35 per 2 months, 5GB for $60 per 2 months, and 10GB for $100 per 2 months.
