Verizon Adds Two New Prepaid Plans

...

Verizon on Monday introduced two new 5GB and 10GB prepaid plans for smartphones that go into effect Nov. 13.

The 5GB plan, priced at $50, offers unlimited talk and text in the US, carryover data with a one-time payment, mobile hotspot capabilities, and international messaging to more than 200 countries. For $70, the 10GB plan includes all those features plus unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada.

Verizon's prepaid lineup also includes a 6GB option for $60 per month and 3GB for $45 per month, and a $30-per-month Wi-Fi-only option. With each, you get HD Voice, which offers enhanced sound quality, 6-way calling, and the ability to surf the Web while talking.

"Just because you're buying prepaid doesn't mean you can't have the latest phones," Verizon said. "Choose from more than two dozen newer model iOS and Android smartphones, including Google Pixel and Motorola Moto Z — many equipped with HD Voice out of the box."

Verizon is technically the only major carrier offering the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, though you can buy it unlocked and bring it to carriers like T-Mobile or Google's own Project Fi.

Meanwhile, Verizon in July introduced new postpaid plans, bumping up data limits (and prices). Like the previous set of plans, the new Verizon Plan comes in five sizes: 2GB for $35, 4GB for $50, 8GB for $70, 16GB for $90, and 24GB for $110. Add $20 for each phone or $10 for each tablet or hotspot used on the plan. In general, these prices are $5-10 more than they were previously, but you get 30-50 percent more data.
