Verizon Prepaid Data Plan Remains Unlimited at Just $30

We’re now 1 full week into Verizon’s new tiered data plan era – how is everyone doing?  Any prepaid users in the building?  We just wanted to point out that you will also be able to bathe in the unlimited lake for the foreseeable future along with smartphone customers that locked in prior to July 7.  According to Verizon’s site, prepaid unlimited data for smartphones is locked in at $30.  Can’t help but smile at that news.

Cheers Gustafson!

    That is why I am going back down to a basic phone, I see that is unlimited data eve if its WAP. As far as smartphones, the only thing you have to worry is paying a little higher than postpaid for everything, but at least you can jump ship at any time. I want to get Verizon again. I will be doing that after I ditch Metro Piece Of S**t. 

  • My wife and i have been now fortunate when Peter could conclude his researching through the ideas he discovered in your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply choose to be giving out secrets and techniques that many many people may have been selling. Therefore we do know we now have the website owner to thank because of that. All of the explanations you made, the easy blog menu, the relationships you can assist to instill – it’s many fantastic, and it’s really facilitating our son in addition to our family do think that subject matter is pleasurable, and that is pretty pressing. Thanks for all the pieces!

  • I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

     Looks like post-paid Verizon customers are getting the shaft when it comes to tiered data plans as there is no more unlimited option….

    Its not truly unlimited like Sprint…  🙁

    How does verizon’s prepaid plan work for smartphones?

    I know for tmobile you purchase the device and buy a refill card and then you buy another one once your balance runs out. Is verizon’s similar or no?

    I didn’t upgrade my gfs line till the 7th and didn’t activate it till the 11th but still got unlimited data. Verizon sent a letter saying that they put unlimited data on that line the 6th as a thank you for being a loyal customer, so I’m pretty happy about that obviously.

    i think that they should do teired for prepaid its just not fair 

  • Logan

    So i am wondering.  New customer start of as pre-paid for a month, then transfer over to a contract and try to keep the unlimited.  I am sure where there is a will, there is a way!

    I am so furious with Verizon.  I bought my wife a new Droid X, and signed up for the data package with her LG phone before the unlimited package was gone.  When I tried to switch the phone to the Droid X, the website tried to kick the data plan out of her account.  I called Verizon, and went up 4, yes, FOUR levels arguing each way, but Verizon’s stance was the same… they said that the old phone was a feature phone and not a smart phone, and so I could not switch the unlimited to the Droid X.  Nowhere on the website did it say I signed up for unlimited data on a feature phone; it said unlimited data.  I argued and argued and argued, and they said NO NO NO!  I guess I’ll be leaving Verizon…  Money hungry jerks.

      I agree with you… and the moment this happens to me I will be taking my 5 lines to a company that wants my business. Sadly I think Verizon is so big they don’t care.

      All the information online (even on Droid-Life) told us that unlimited data for a feature phone was not the same as unlimited data on the smartphone and that locking in the plan for one type of phone won’t lock it in for the other.  Yeah it sucks to lose the unlimited, but we were all warned way ahead of time.

      • It was discussed ON THIS SITE that you can’t do that, so don’t expect sympathy from me

    Just to opint out. This is for data ONLY. If you were to choose data and the cheapest voice plan it would total out to 74.99 per month. This 450 minutes and no texting with unlimited data. If you were to add texting it would go up to 94.99 a month, plus fees.

      Can one purchase just Data?  If i wanted to use a smartphone with hotspot capability, could I just purchased Data and be able to tether other devices to it? I wouldn’t need minutes or messaging on the phone just a data connection.

    very nice.  Did anyone catch this: http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/12/one-third-of-iphone-users-mistakenly-think-they-have-4g/  34% of iphone owners say that they have “4g technology”  bwahahahahahaha

      Thats the average iPhone user. 
      Young and stupid. 

    • I saw that on another site this morning.  Just goes to show you how stupid the average iphone user is.  They don’t know shit about the phone other than it has the wifis and geebees and they think it makes them cool.

        Let’s be honest – we could say that about your average smartphone user.

          check out the data for android users… 29% said they have 4g, i don’t know what the true stats are, but im sure it’s a lot closer to the true stat for android users.

          • Anonymous

            Sure, but your average smartphone user doesn’t know anything about 4G and probably doesn’t care. It’s also possible that these stats were stacked differently depending on where the research came from (i.e. more iOS users overall than Android, etc.). Regardless, average smartphone users are not well informed on 4G or any other smartphone technology.

            Where can I get a good pre paid data plan for Android phones.

      A co-worker thinks he has the same “4g technology” on his verizon Iphone, which he states that is working and his phone is better since Verizon is 4G now. Also just a FYI,  We are in a 3G coverage are and will not get 4G LTE for some time.   

      • He’s an i*hone user, need we say more. I feel bad for these people.

      saw it

      Since no US carrier offers true 4G, everybody is wrong who says they are running “4G Technology”.

        good point, 4g hipster, but actually that was discussed ad nauseum and it was decided that LTE tech does have a right to a separate title than 3g, hence, 4g.
