Is it possible to get a prepaid plan and use an existing phone (old LG Chocolate) or must I buy a new phone? I'm looking for a cheap way to get a phone for a family member who will almost never use it.

Thanks.

I found this on the Verizon web site about prepaid service. Hopes it helps.

Can I use a phone that was previously used on a monthly billing plan on the Prepaid service?

You can activate a phone that was previously used on a monthly billing plan on our Prepaid service provided it is a dual-mode or tri-mode CDMA GPS-compatible handset that is compatible with our network. However, some of the features and services of your phone may not be available on the Prepaid service.

If you are not sure if your wireless phone is compatible, please call our Verizon Wireless Sales Department at (800) 2-JOIN-IN (256-4646), or visit one of our Verizon Wireless stores 

If your handset is not compatible with our network, you will need to purchase  new equipment    to activate Prepaid service

Thanks! Sadly it sounds like since the phone was used on my "paid" Verizon account, that I may be forced to buy a another phone. Bummer Smiley Sad
