Verizon Announces New ALLSET Prepaid Plan Starting at $45, Still No LTE Included

Verizon announced a new prepaid wireless plan this morning called ALLSET. The plan includes unlimited talk and text plus 500MB of data per month for $45, along with the option to add on “Bridge Data,” that can extend that data allotment by an extra 500MB, 1GB, or 3GB. Also, if added on Bridge Data goes unused, it can be pushed to the next month, sort of like rollover data. 

The ALLSET plan also includes unlimited text to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. If you sign-up for it before 6/30/2014, Verizon will also add in 1,000 minutes to Canada and Mexico. And last, for a limited time, those who sign-up for Autopay will receive an extra 500MB of data, bringing their total to 1GB for $45.

Oh, these plans still do not include access to Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Back when the Nexus 5 launched, we ran through our list of the best prepaid networks. Feel free to check it out if you have realized that contracts or some of the big carriers aren’t satisfying your wireless needs.

    Even MVNO offer affordable prepaid data plan with more data allowances http://www.telecomvibe.com

    I use my GS4 and LG G2 Verizon models on HSPA+ via AT&T (Straight Talk). I get on average 1-5 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. On Verizon EVDO I was usually pulling 500 Kbps to 1 Mbps LUCKY if I could hit 2 Mbps. With Straight Talk I get 2.5 GBs not a dinky 500 MBs.

  • JPfingsten

    Verizon, I can use LTE on ATT’s prepaid network….I can’t believe you’re worse than Ma bell.

  • stabone

    I thought I remember reading once that Verizon was going to have all phones require 4G by 2014.

  • CyHawk60

    Last month they had a promo plan that was unlimited talk and text and 2 gb of data for $50. Some improvement?!?

    • Brock Johnson

      No they didn’t, 50 got you a gb on pre pay & post paid plan was 60

      • CyHawk60

        Your right. Not sure why I thought it was 2gb.

  • Kelly OBrien

    Still no LTE and still not giving up my unlimited data plan either. Keep trying big red

  • Patrick Crumpler

    I’ll stick with my N4 and ATT go phone plan for $60

    • JPfingsten

      At least get an N5 so you can use LTE (if it’s in your area, I guess)!

  • jbdan

    Vzw 3g = Edge speeds in my location. It’s something, but it’s painful

  • mustbepbs

    Hey Verizon,

    I’m ALLSET with your backwards prepaid plans.

    Thanks anyway 🙂

    • Michael Schnider

      I see what you did there… 😉

      • creed

        And there

  • Intellectua1

    So 3G is horrible now!? It wasn’t bad when I had my Droid X, may not be as fast as today’s signals but I’m sure it’s decent especially to someone looking for a $45 a month plan.. Can’t have your cake and eat it too.. Especially with rollover data

    • flosserelli

      But you can have your cake and eat it with other carriers. Check out aio wireless and Straight Talk.

      • Not really, considering you can get LTE speeds for the first 5GB and unlimited 2G for $30 a month on T-Mobile.

        • flosserelli

          That is my point. Other carriers offer similar packages of 4G LTE data for less money, including T-Mobile.

    • spunker88

      For the same price (with autopay) you can get 2.5GB of LTE data (granted its throttled to 8Mb/s) at AIO Wireless which is owned and operated by At&t and uses their network which is comparable to Verizon’s in coverage. T-mobile is even cheaper but their coverage in rural areas isn’t that great and when it is its only 2G.

  • Michael Quinlan

    No LTE service, but can you activate LTE-capable phones? If so, this may be an advantage over Verizon MVNOs, where you’re basically limited to non-LTE phones, which were all released over 2 years ago.

  • Buur

    So instead of fast LTE data that might push people to buy more they are going to make people go with their terrible 3G data which they might not be able to run out of if they try.

    • Michael Schnider

      That’s Verizon for ya.

    • flosserelli

      Precisely. Verizon doesn’t want more people hogging their LTE network, so they offer this “deal” to people that don’t know the difference.

  • MaryCWoodman

    lol…. awful http://xub.me/AAVXB

  • flosserelli

    Even the First Lady can’t get over this

  • zaraki921

    can someone please explain to me why droid-life has links in its articles to the exact same article? shouldn’t that “all set” link lead us to verizon’s page? if not that a search result to all verizon articles on droid-life would be more helpful than what happens now.

    • Michael Schnider

      Are you talking about the Link at the bottom that says Via: Verizon?

      • zaraki921

        no. i wrote “that “all set” link” in my post above. i understand it’s part of their tag system, but an actual link would be more helpful 9 times out of 10.

        • Michael Schnider

          My apologies. I see what you talking about now. I agree with you.

          • zaraki921

            ha no need apologies needed sir!

        • capecodcarl

          It’s probably to boost their search engine rankings.

  • T4rd

    It wouldn’t be a too bad of a deal if Verizon’s CDMA/3G was even remotely as fast as HSPA on AT&T or T-Mobile.

    • flosserelli

      No doubt. I bought a month of T-mobile service to compare with Verizon in Houston. It has only been a few days but Ookla Speedtest app shows T-mobile wins about 7 out of 10 times.

    • calculatorwatch

      It’s actually a benefit. With Verizon’s terrible 3G speeds there’s no way you could go over that 500Mb monthly limit.

      • Greedy Verizon

        3G on Verizon is like 3-6 Mbps, that’s 1/2 a MB a second on average.

        Third world countries have faster data speeds than VZW 3G.

        God Forbid the telecommunication industry Invest in Fiber Optics to get faster speeds. $130 Billion a year for 2-10 gb limited data and 8Mbps speeds, and $0 in taxes for 4 years.

        Guess they can’t create a network with fast speeds because people would go through their data in a couple days, causing frustrations and a mass exodus to unlimited data carriers. All of this is their plan for gouging as much as they can till the very last point till they are forced to upgrade their system.

    • MK17

      Haha, Verizon’s CDMA isn’t remotely as fast as AT&T’s GSM, much less HSPA.

      • T4rd

        HSPA is a form of GSM.. GSM encompasses all of AT&T and T-Mobile’s network bands; from EDGE to LTE. So that statement is kinda redundant and vague.

    • Menger40

      Yeah. Verizon EVDO is like 1 mbps, sometimes less. That’s like DSL speed.

      • That’s actually very slow for DSL speed.

  • Tony Byatt


  • The Narrator

    Amazing how they push plans that don’t have their signature LTE that they advertise everywhere.

    • Kyle

      Wouldn’t it be great to pick up a Moto G with a large Verizon 3G logo on the back?? 😛

  • Michael Schnider

    I hope rollover data makes its way on to contract customers. I have a double the data plan and it would be nice if they rolled over what I didn’t use. I can wish can’t I?

    • M3D1T8R

      They used to have just that. It was called “Unlimited Data”. The portion of the unlimited data that you didn’t use one month rolled over to the next.
      I still have this service, pay $30 a month for it, it’s pretty good.
      Unfortunately Verizon is a leader in the current corporate trend of offering customers less while charging them more. Brilliant business plan, when there is no truly competitive marketplace.

      • JPfingsten


        DIE IN HELL!

        • M3D1T8R

          Haha.. This comment made my day.
