Change in the Prepaid Plans

It would be nice if Verizon would rethink their smartphone prepaid plans. $45/month for only 1GB of data is not that great... $60/month for 2.5GB of data is not that great either. It would be nice for Verizon to change the plans. For example, it would be nice for Verizon to come out with three new smartphone prepaid plans:

                                                  1. $45/month- Unlimited Talk, Text, and 2.5GB of data

                                                  2. $55/month- Unlimited Talk, Text, and 5GB of data

                                                  3. $65/month- Unlimited Talk, Text, and 10GB of data

*Then still keep the add on data options, but change them up as well. For example:

                                                  1. $5 gives you an add on of 1GB

                                                  2. $10 gives you an add on of 3GB

                                                  3. $20 gives you an add on of 5GB

*Auto Pay should still be available and the customers who sign up got auto pay should receive an extra 2GB of data a month just for signing up.


This is what I feel should happen and these changes seem fair to me.

I use autopay, so I have the extra 1GB.

If Verizon used the plans you suggest, then yes, there would be an influx of Prepaid customers since those are the same prices and allotments Boost Mobile uses.  It would definitely help capture business, but would also kill the current postpaid plans.  Yes, there should be a slight increase to the data allotment for prepaid users, however, I doubt we will ever see prepay getting more for less than postpaid since postpaid has added features like Cloud, Advanced Calling, Rewards, and other features included.

Well Boost Mobile is $35, $45, and $55... All three include unlimited talk and text and the data is 1GB, 5GB, and 10GB respectively. I just thought I would put my opinion out there and I do thing it would be nice/great if Verizon did make the changes that I recommended or at least made the changes and those changes were similar to my recommendation.

Depends on you Boost Mobile auto-payment enrollment status.

If you need Verizon coverage on pre-pay you're better off with going with StraightTalk. The pre-paid data add-ons are a joke they been the same price for 2 years now. Ironically the Verizon CEO said they got rid of the 500 MB plan on post paid because having MB and GB plans confused people. Yet somehow having MB and GB add-ons don't confuse pre-paid people or he doesn't care if they get confused.

However, it makes little sense to have a 1GB plan for a basic phone.  Smartphones do not have a xxMB plan.

At the very least they should offer more data on the $45 plan. I make due but it would be nice if I could be able to use my data more often without having to watch it like a hawk. I'm not big on auto pay I much rather pay with refill cards so I know I missing out on that extra gig. Truthfully in 2015 all data should be unlimited anyway but that is different topic all together I won't get into now.
