Verizon has announced two new prepaid offerings for subscribers looking to avoid the hassles of a longterm contract. Replacing an older $80 per month plan that afforded customers 1GB of data along with unlimited talk and text are two less expensive options.
The lowest tier of prepaid service is priced at $60 per month and provides 500MB of 3G data. For $10 more per month that data cap can be upped to 2GB. Both plans include unlimited talk and text.
The main drawback is that Verizon is only opening the new service options specific handsets, and none rank among the latest and greatest from the carrier. Users seeking cheap, pay by the month plans will have to settle for older devices like the HTC Droid Incredible 2.
