How to activate a prepaid wireless phone - just buy minutes - no plans
liviaalvare

I have been trying to activate my prepaid wireless from verizon which I purchased earlier today, all afternoon with no success.  I used the cell phone itself utilizing the send button - but I cannot get past pushing #1 or 2 for a service plan.  I do not want a plan I just want to buy my minutes when needed.  I will now try to call the 800 number to see if I am able to speak unto a human being and not a recording.

 

Any recommendations?

With prepaid, you have to select a plan just as with postpaid service.  Verizon offers a variety of pricing structures for their prepaid.  Some of the plans are "daily" which means that you pay a certain fee any day you make or recieve a call.  The amount of the fee determines how much your per minute and per text rates are.  There are also monthly plans that are similar to the postpaid plans.

After you pressed send did you wait for the directions and  enter your zip then when it asks for a plan Basic would be the plan that is for just minutes. Liviaalavare has given you all the other plan choices.  To call prepaid customer service dial 1-888-294-6804 they should be available 24-7
