Change from prepaid plan to a pay as you go plan.

I currently have a prepaid plan.

Sometime later I'd like to change to a pay as you go plan.

Can I do this on line?

Do you mean you want to switch to a postpaid account?

No.

Here are the plan descriptions, on the Verizon website:

There are two general types of prepaid plans:

monthly plans:

plans for smartphones and basic phones that include a flat monthly access fee

and an allowance for minutes, text and data usage.

Pay as you go plans:

Daily or per minute plans for basic phones that let you pay for only the

minutes, text and data you use

I currently have a monthly plan, as described above.

Later, I'd like to change to a pay as you go plan, as described above.

It looks like the pay as you go plan would be postpaid,

but it's described as prepaid, above.

Unless that refers to a prepaid phone?

Descriptions are under the plan faqs:

Thanks.

You are required to use the monthly prepaid plans if you have a smartphone. The "Pay as you go" plan is for basic phones only.

I believe you can switch to Pay as You Go from Monthly Prepaid.  Pay As You Go | Verizon Wireless

Using a smartphone on this plan maybe isn't the best choice.  You could run into a lot of usage charges.  Monthly might be the most cost efficient path.
