I currently use a very basic LG Accolade phone on a daily access pay as you go Prepaid plan ($0.25 per minute for voice / $0.20 per text message). The plan is perfect for me, but I'd like to switch to a smartphone so that I could access the Internet via WiFi when I am at home or at work. In other words, I would only use the Verizon network for voice and text messages.
Does anyone know if I could purchase a used Verizon-compatible smartphone, and then register to use it with my daily access pay as you go plan?
No. You would have to switch to the appropriate prepaid smartphone plan.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Verizon has pre-paid smartphone plan. I believe you have to chose one of their phones.
Just to let you know in 3 days they are changing up the prepaid smartphone plan. They'll have 2 plans
unlimited talk/text and 500 MB data $60 per month
unlimited talk/text and 2 GB data $70 per month
Since they are changing the plans they may offer more phones than 3 currently listed. Then again they may not.
So it sounds like Verizon won't allow me to sign up a phone that happens to be a smartphone on a daily use plan. That's too bad. Guess I will start looking at other vendors.
If you want to use a smartphone you need to sign up for their smartphone plan. You're not going to find many vendors that will let you have a daily plan with a smartphone, but good luck.
