I love Verizon Wireless, but it seems like they do not have and good phones for prepaid users. I have the LG Accolade and its already tearing up and I got it in for my birthday in March! Also, If you have the daily plan the phone choice is even more limited.

I hate to say it put I don't think they will come out with better phones to soon, Verizon spends more money on building more towers for better signal strength so maybe someday when there done with the towers they will start investing in better feature phones. Here are some phones if you can find them that are usable on pre paid.

PREPAID PHONES

LG-- Accolade, Chocolate, Cosmo, VX3200, VX3450, VX5200, VX 5400, VX5500, VX6100, VX7000, ENV --SAMSUNG--Alias SCHu740, Gusto, Haven , Intensity, Juke, SCHA650, SCHA870, SCHU340, CHU410, SCHU430, SCHU540, Smooth --NOKIA -- 2128i, 2366i, 2650 Mirage, 2705 Shade

Most Verizon Wireless phones will work with our prepaid plans

. The only phones that are not compatible with our service are Push to Talk, PDAs/Smartphones, advance data devices (BlackBerry, PalmOne Treo, etc.), PC Card devices and handsets with HTML Web browser such as the LG Dare, LG Voyager, Samsung Glyde, Samsung Omnia and Motorola Krave and all Dashboard-capable devices like the LG Chocolate 3, LG VX 8360, Motorola Rapture VU30, Nokia 7205 Intrigue and Samsung Renown SCH-u810.

Um most if not any phone for Verizon, via Smartphone or not will work with Prepaid so long as it has a Clear ESN. Unless you have a specific plan that clearly states otherwise before you signed up for the plan.

Um most if not any phone for Verizon, via Smartphone That is not true, no smartphones will work on the prepaid Monthly or Daily plans. It states that right in the contract.  or not will work with Prepaid so long as it has a Clear ESN. Unless you have a specific plan that clearly states otherwise before you signed up for the plan.

The LG Extravert (which is essentially the LG Cosmos Touch 2) was recently released and it will work with the $50 Unlimited Talk, Text and Web plan. http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/controller?item=prepayItem&action=viewPrepayPhoneDetail&sel...
