Verizon Announces 4G LTE Connectivity for ALLSET Prepaid Plan, Launches July 17

verizon logo2

Two weeks ago, we exclusively reported that Verizon would introduce 4G LTE connectivity to its ALLSET prepaid plan starting July 17. Today, Verizon made it official. After keeping 4G LTE out of its prepaid plans for years, Big Red will now allow you to “bring your own device” to ALLSET and not have to worry about contracts. Even XLTE-ready devices will work with ALLSET going forward.

The plan works like this – $45 will get you unlimited talk and text, plus 500MB of data. If you want more data, you can pay for BRIDGE DATA at $5 for another 500MB, $10 for 1GB, or $20 for 3GB. BRIDGE DATA expires after a certain amount of days if you don’t use it ($5 data after 30 days, $10 and $20 after 90 days). You can add up to two BRIDGE DATA packages at a time.

If you sign-up for auto pay, Verizon will also give you another 500MB of data at no cost. 

With Verizon ALLSET, you can essentially pick and choose the data package that would work best for you, like say the base plan (500MB), with auto pay (free 500MB), and $20 in BRIDGE DATA (3GB), which would give you 4GB of data for $65. That’s not bad.

Verizon will also make a select number of devices available for prepaid, like the Moto X, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, and HTC One. But again, if you already own a Verizon 4G LTE device, you can activate it on ALLSET prepaid, starting this Thursday.

From what I can tell, there isn’t a catch to ALLSET. For example, you should see full 4G LTE speeds and have no limitations.

Any takers?

    I used to have Verizon Wireless service years ago, and it was very expensive and still is when it comes to the traditional plans, but when I saw that they put together a prepaid plan that could compare to AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint I thought “It’s about time!”

    I pretty much am already on Verizon Pre-paid plan, the 4G LTE rollout is some great news! Hopefully they roll out with more phone options as well, but as I read over the article the S5, HTC one or Moto X are on my list to look at.

  • Anthony

    Honestly I think Verizon is the best at&t is terrible so is tmobile metro pcs cricket and straight talk. Verizon I never had really any signal loss and I have had no drop calls either.

    • Gnashy

      It’s awesome to know you tried all 5 of those others carrier to give us insight on how terrible they are. I applaud you.

  • TC Infantino

    I think this will finally convince my parents to switch to a smartphone.

  • BodomSlayer

    Does the bridge data replenish automatically if you don’t use it all up in one month but use the remainder in the second or third?

  • JaYa

    My 2 year contract just ended with VZW. I pay 62 (after corp discount) + 10 taxes for 2GB, 450 min and no texting. I use about 1.5GB/month. I need a new phone as my GS3 is shot, but I have a upgrade available. So for $50 plus tax I could get 1.5GB, unlimited min and texting. Any reason why I shouldn’t do this?

    • David R

      If you use your upgrade you’ll be on contract for 2 more years at your $72/rate. The $50+tax rate is bringing your own phone or purchasing outright.

    • mike

      Do it

      • mike

        When my contract ends I’m gonna go to vzw no contract in ct they have the best service. I will just keep my phone which is 4G and get rid of all those stupid taxes for this taxes for that WOW verizon really knows how to TAX a customer and that’s why im switching ..

  • guy pacifica

    So does the month-to-month ALLSET plans from Verizon also require the $40/month network access fee? Their similarly priced More Everything contract plans require that. Verizon likes to bury that required fee until you’re filling in the final forms.

  • Guest

    I’m guessing the difference here is the loss of roaming coverage … or is that also included with prepaid plans?

  • Jason Kahn

    Being verizon I’ll bet the Hidden fees will add to $20 or $30 bucks or “Bridging” dta will carry penalty fees.

    It was so freaking refreshing when I switched to T-Mobile, the $80.00 plan was $87.00 with NYS sales tax

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      nope

  • xyz023

    $30 T-Mobile plan kills this offer. Especially for city folk.

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      Yeah T-Mobile ignores 1/3 of the US. In the 2/3 of the population they do cover in many area their coverage stinks. So when elitist smarta$$es talk about T-Mobile just remember 1/3 of the people you’re trying convince have absolutely no way of getting T-Mobile. 97% can get Verizon.

    • guest

      Vzw in those same areas that tmo is getting xlte while you’re not

      • John Murray

        TMo doesn’t need “xlte” in those areas because they already have the bandwidth to begin with… VZW put all of their eggs in one basket, a basket that had very narrow bandwidth, comparatively.

  • Jeremy Martin

    Oh there is a catch somewhere…this is Verizon Wireless after all. Just need to wait for it.

    • Eric R.

      Yeah, your stuck buying a phone from them

      • patt

        don’t forget all LTE phones are also factory unlocked so you actually do have a choice of going somewhere else :)

        • Nunyur_Biznezz

          unlocked for international use.

          • patt

            No no Unlocked for every carrier but Sprint. Even all US carriers. Most 3G phones are Intl only.

  • Mech_Engr_09

    This is how clueless their reps are….proceeded to tell me the pricing was 329.99 without buying the phone and was discounted to 229.99 if purchased with the phone. I then told her that it says 229.99 regardless of whether or not you bundle the phone. I almost flipped out on her.

  • who knows

    Does the $45 include taxes?

    • Scott

      I don’t believe so.

  • Bailers77

    Are hotspot devices included on this? Or just phones?

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      you can use the phone as a hotspot. But Verizon already has had prepaid4g hotspot plans.

  • Derek Traini

    So lemme get this straight, would we have 4GB to use in a month? Or do we have to make that last for 90 days? Sorry, I couldn’t really follow that part.

    • NastyEmu

      Niether, you are pre-paying for the data you are going to use, but if you don’t use it by the cut-off period (30-90 days, depending on how much you buy) you lose it. So if you buy 4GB, and use it up in two weeks, you need to buy more data. But if you buy 4GB and it last you 3 months, you wouldn’t have had to pay for any extra data during months 2 and 3. It is kind of confusing, so I hope that makes more sense.

      • steve30x

        So if what im understanding 4gigs in three months?? I use on average about 1.8 gigs or so a month and wifi at home, If that’s the case from what you said then this is not for me and would have liked it since its on VZ coverage. Not to mention taxes perhaps added on monthly…

        • NastyEmu

          You would just buy another gig for $10 in that third month. So your three months would be $65, $45, $55. $165 for the 3 month period.

          Edit: Actually, I think you wouldn’t need to add the extra gig since you would get another 1GB included each with month 2 and 3. (Assuming you take advantage of the 500mb autopay bonus)

          • steve30x

            hmm I guess that doesn’t sound too bad considering I pay around 110.00 or so a month already.. I might want to look into this once my contract expires.. we have Straight talk here and data is fast with att 4g but call reception is iffy.. so yeah Verizon dominates this area.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          Well with you averaging 1.8 GB a month, If you are on auto pay, you’d pay $65 the first month, and have 2.2 GBs of data that would carry over to month two. Pay $45 the second month, and 1.4 GBs would carry over to the third month. Pay $45 in the third month and the .6 GBs of data you would have at the end of that month would expire.

          • HurricaneDroid

            Am I wrong in assuming that you would also receive 500Mb for the month with your payment along with 500Mb for the auto payment?

        • Nunyur_Biznezz

          No your are not understanding. You get 500 MB per month with the base $45 plan( 1 GB if on auto pay ) you can add Bridge Data. It comes in 500 MB( expires with 30 days of activation ) 1 GB for $10( expires in 90 days ) or 3 GB for $20( expires in 90 days ) you can have up to 2 Bridge data allotments on your account at one time. The 2nd allotment doesn’t activate until the first one is used up or expires. So in your case you could by a 3 GB Bridge Data allotment every 2 months. You’d get 500 MB each month( unless on auto-pay then it’s 1 GB ) and if you split the Bridge data that’s 1.5 GB per month or a total of 2 GB per month( 2.5GB if on auto-pay ).
          Taxes are sales taxes. My state also adds a 53 cents 911 fee, that’s it.

  • Marcellus1

    I might just try this out for a while after my current VZW contract is up. I’m paying ~$130/mo for 2 phones, unlimited talk/text plus 2GB data. Assuming an even data split, I could get the same with this for $90/mo.

    • patt

      before you do hop on that promotion.

      Call them up say: You are interested in 1GB free data for 12 months.
      You will have 3GB total. Promotional Data is used first before Regular data is counted. Enjoy! i also made a slickdeals post with this lots of people got it.

      • Dan

        That’s nice and all, but that doesn’t save him $40 a month.

        • patt

          He will be saving extra 10$ per line once his contracts are up if he is on 2GB plan. Month2Month discount.

  • King of Nynex

    If I didn’t already have an unlimited data plan, I would probably be interested in this. You get the stability of Big Red’s network with enough data to use Google Maps. There’s no way I’d pay for a standard smartphone plan. They’re a total ripoff.

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      your opinion

  • Kyle

    Verizon: $45 = 500mb data
    StraightTalk: $45 for unlimited data (only slowed after 3GB)

    Better Verizon, but still not that great.

    • ITGuy11

      I got my son a Nexus 5 on straight talk and the bill is $49/mth after taxes. He gets great LTE coverage through AT&T. The speeds are much faster than my vzw lte…. 3GB hasn’t been a problem as he is usually on WiFi. If me and the wife weren’t grandfathered unlimited on vzw we’d switch.

      • Mech_Engr_09

        I’m thinking about either trying out straight talk or cricket wireless since they now control aio wireless. I’ve never used AT&T before. Is their coverage a lot better than T-Mobile’s? Because I tried them out for a month and it was god awful.

        • ITGuy11

          Where I live AT&T coverage is way better than T-Mobile’s. Tried Tmo for a month as well and phone would go from Edge to HSPA constantly, every once and a great while I would get a flash of LTE.

        • Tony Byatt

          Beware of Cricket…Their customer service may be the worst in the business…

          • Dan

            They were before they were bought by AT&T and are now rebranded AIO wireless. I was very happy with AIO customer service when I tried them out a while back.

          • http://nopenopenope.nope Ryuuie

            That was only true back when Cricket was owned by Leap Wireless and not AT&T. Now, Cricket’s CS is the same as Aio’s which is a lot better than both Cricket AND Straight Talk/Net10’s.

    • Willie D

      Cricket $40 = 500mb data ($35 w/auto pay)
      Cricket $50 = 2.5gb data ($40 w/autopay)
      Cricket $60 = 5gb data ($55 w/autopay)
      All unlimited throttled data after, something Verizon doesn’t offer, all have LTE, while not at full speed, offers speed similar enough to many areas Verizon LTE speed is, and has HSPA+ backup for a secondary 4G network rather than dropping to “3G” EVDO.

      Just saying..

      • Nunyur_Biznezz

        You do realize in many Verizon areas things like Cricket are not available. Cricket does not have great overage. At least Verizon service will almost anywhere.

        • Dan

          Cricket is now an AT&T company and is one their network. Great coverage.

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      Straight Talk 3GB of 3g speed slowed to useless 1X. Can not bring you own 4G phone.

  • Chase

    That does not seem terrible. I wonder what the small print is like.

  • MichaelFranz

    4gb for $65 isn’t bad. Especially with their coverage. not worth dumping unlimited, but it is pretty close. Do we know if there is anything above 3GB on a plan?

    If they did a double data promo on it i’d do it :).

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      You can have up to 2 bridge data on your account at one time. So theoretically up to 7 GB per month on autopay( 6.5 GB without auto-pay ) that would cost $85.

  • Truth

    That seems surprisingly competitive. A lot of people would be just fine with the 500mb+500mb, but could but that 20$ of bridge DATA to carry them for three months. So 45+45+45+20 = $155 for 3 months of comfortable data use? On Verizon’s network? That’s an excellent option.

  • Shane Redman

    Just tell me there a G3GPE in the works so I can save up and go magenta

  • bobbyp

    This might be a legitimate way for me to finally get my adult son off of my contract.

    • Shane Redman

      I’m waiting for the right phone to get off my parent’s, unless they kick me off too :-P

      • Eric R.

        There isn’t a selection for VZ Prepaid, its basically either Moto G or GS3

        • Shane Redman

          Oh, when I get off, I’m not sticking with Verizon.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          Well, there will be a selection for VZ Prepaid after this goes live. Any Verizon XLTE or 4G phone would be able to be on it.

    • Chris

      That’s just selfish! ;p

    • Mech_Engr_09

      Speaking as an adult son on his parents plan. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN haha.

      • Scott

        That’s really sad.

        • Mech_Engr_09

          Yeah you’re right, it’s sad that I’m 23 and my parents are nice enough to continue paying my bill. Sorry my family isn’t poor likes yours and kicks you out of the door when you’re 18. assface

          • Scott

            Paying your own cell phone is part of growing up. You apparently will never accomplish that. I imagine they pay for your car and/or car insurance as well.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            Well seeing as how I make way more money than you ever will, I’d say I’m pretty grown up. I’ve offered to pay it, but they said it’s no big deal. Awe is someone mad that his life is miserable and will amount to nothing. I wish I could find people like you because I would honestly beat this shiit out of you. Fuking biitch boy

          • Scott

            Sure sounds like you’re the one who’s mad. You better run along now it’s bound to be time for your afternoon nap then if you behave you can have a snack!

          • Mech_Engr_09

            nah can’t take naps when you’re making 100k a year bro. Peace broke ass biitch

          • Scott

            Haha. Maybe in monopoly money.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            No douche, read the name. Mechanical engineers make a lot of money. Google it if you don’t believe me.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            I can tell you’re a smart person.

    • FelisLachesis

      I have my parents AND my kids on my plan.

    • Franklin Ramsey

      Or, just kick him off anyways.
