Verizon “Unleashed” $50 Unlimited Prepaid Plan Appears to be Real, Shows Up at Best Buy

A couple of weeks ago, we first reported news of a $50 unlimited everything month-to-month (prepaid) plan from Verizon called Unleashed that we were dying to hear more on.  Well, it looks like the plan definitely exists and is already being promoted on prepaid phone packaging, so now we just hope that they allow some decent smartphones to gobble up this deal.  We still haven’t had official word out of Verizon’s camp on its existence, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see it any day now.

Update:  We’re hearing that the Unleashed plan launches 4/28 and will only be available in southern California and Florida.

Update 2:  Another shot which includes the plan info we’ve seen already…

Cheers Jay!

    So I guess Verizon is admitting their contract services are “leashed”, as in “good doggie. do as we say.”?

    Its crazy how many damn Racist we have here in this site. Cinco de Mayo, IS NOT Mexican Independence Day. Mexicans DO NOT celebrate it like its done here in the US. Its just another Hallhark/Beer made Holiday. Also, In Florida there is way more Cubans, Dominicans, and Puerto Ricans than Mexicans, just FYI. For the majority of people that dont care about the features that most of us on this here care about a phone like this is BY FAR a better deal for them. I have a TBolt and the Wifey has her *phone4 and were paying almost $200 a month for 1400 minutes (Shared). Had Virgin Mobile had a better phone I would have gone with their $25 deal which almost offers everything I need. Its serviced by Sprint, which in my opinion is #2 in Service behind VZW. VZW knows they are losing TONS of Money not catering in these people looking for these plans. Thses people dont have to be Mexican or Drug Dealers to want to Save a buck. They just have to be smart and see we dont need all these features on a phone, when we have computers and laptops for all of that.

      You couldnt have said it better.I live in Florida and I’m married to beautiful lady from Equador. And yes sad to say there are so many Racist. That only comes from the lack of education, which in turn they and there parents are just plain stupid. It all starts at home. That is why the United States is so far  behind most other countries in education, and being the # 1 country in the world. I remember George Lopez saying … were not Mexicants, were Mixicans.  God Bless Brother. Oh by the way I’m white …..

    I have a Droid bought on eBay running on a Verizon reseller Page Plus…1200 min, 2000 sms, 100 mg data/mo $30.

    I have wifi at work and home so it works great for me.

    Using it for a year now with no problems.

      will it work on the droid x2 u think?

    They are going after the Metro-PCS market. MetroPcs has been doing this for years at 30-45 bucks per month. They even offer $60 unlimited LTE service in SoFla. The big fish are now starting to eat the small fish. Verizon already gets 350 dollars per month for communications and internet from my household. We used to make it for less than a hundred bucks a month for phone and cable before all this “freedom” came along.

    Hmmmm…50 bucks for the kid to have a phone. Or 10 bucks for a add a line and 5 bucks for parental control. Definitely not geared for kids. And thankful only launched in those 2 markets. I have a hard enough time with a freaking Wal Mart across the street and internet deals cutting into my paycheck.

    Thanks Verizon

    can i travel to SoCal or Florida to sign up and then come home and use this plan?

  • Null

    They’d never let this deal apply to smartphones. “Web” is not the same as “Data” in their eyes.

    Only avalible in So Cal and Florida? – Thats Racist!

    Not bad for feature phones. What no LTE phones. Total rip-off. Lol. Just kidding. I would like a unlimited LTE only plan for my TBolt when Google Voice goes VOIP.

          Incorrect. They do celebrate it. Of course my friend that grew up in Mexico City until he was 16 could be completely wrong.

    • IvankaHumpHew

      And wellfare recipients. Now they can spend my money more wisely.

        Well that was just rude.

        These pre-paid plans are great for teenaged kids who constantly whine that they want their own phone but cannot be trusted with a plan that they could rack up the minutes or texting limits. Plans like this or Virgin Mobile, Boost or Metro PCS are perfect for the little bastards. Plus since you are not locked in, you can always suspend their service by not paying the monthly charge if their grades slip, they refuse to do chores around the house or if they generally just piss you off.
        Until society allows parents to spank the living hell out of their kids again, then you are stuck with measures like this.

          Let’s put spanking on the next ballot! Crime will go down 80% if it passes.

          If I had the need for lawn service and decided to have kids, they wouldn’t get a phone until they had their own credit.

    Just got off the phone with verizon and the rep. told me he was aware of the plan but that as of now it is not available on smartphones, he did say it may happen in the future but as of right now no smartphones.HOPE THIS HELPS.

    no way we will see smart phones, or atleast any good ones on this. They would factor in that data consumption.

  • Anonymous

    I’d be willing to bet it’s limited to feature phones. There’s no way a prepaid plan is cheaper than contract plans(without a significant catch).

  • LivinFree

    Nice deal that is for sure if it hits. However even tho it says unlimited web I’m sure there is a clause in the fine print somewhere stating they will throttle it if you use to much data. It would be the same stuff you see in the fine print of USCC, Cricket..etc on there supposed unlimited data

  • http://iamandroid.co/profile/rocktoonz Rocktoonz

    I’d be happy with that plan for 69 or 79 for smartphones. would make my bills significantly cheaper.

    • Jay P

      it will come once @TT crap TMO crap merges 2gether.

  • Alex

    I would love for that to happen…But knowing Verizon, they might be a trick with that deal!

    “Unleashed” So… VZW admits its contract customers are on a leash like dogs.

    • EC8CH

      If so, maybe its not so unnatural that I feel like dumping on my VZW bill from time to time :-)

      • EC8CH

        Seriously… not two seconds after posting this I got an email that my VZW bill was available!
