ThunderBolt as Prepaid

Good Morning,

I have the Verizon Wireless prepaid $80 monthly smartphone service. I have the Samsung Illusion phone, which I'm pretty happy with. My boyfriend has an HTC ThunderBolt that he's willing to give me since he got an iPhone. Would this phone "work" as a prepaid device or am I limited to the Samsung Illusion?

Thanks! Hope everyone has a great day!

Re: ThunderBolt as Prepaid

I don't believe that the Thunderbolt will work with your pre-paid plan. It is a 4G LTE smartphone and as of this point I haven't seen a 4G smartphone offered to work with the pre-paid plans. They might someday, but I don't know if it will happen or not.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
