Based on the service plans available, Verizon Cloud has two levels: Premium and Free:
Premium -> Allows all features of the product to be available, all available Data Classes for Backup and Sync, share and editing options, Music Playback, and preview new features in a pre-release sections called "Beta Labs".
Free -> Sync you local contacts only between device and Cloud storage.
Both allow access to your Cloud via a Web Portal to manage content.
