Verizon is offering 6GB of data for $60 and 3GB for $45 to customers who sign up for auto-pay. Meanwhile, customers who decide not to enroll in auto-pay will only have 2GB and 5GB for the $45 and $60 plans, respectively. The same plans were offered in February, but the carrier is planning to offer them permanently, according to Engadget.
Customers paying for the $45 plan will also get unlimited texts to Canada and Mexico but they’ll have to switch to the $60 plan if they need to make unlimited calls from the United States to either of those countries.
“Whether you’re just starting out with your own wireless plan or simply love to have complete control of your wireless spending, prepaid plans give you the best network on the latest phones”, said Rob Miller, Verizon vice president of consumer pricing, as quoted by the Verizon Wireless website.
Verizon wants to let its customers know that they’re in control
Miller noted that the prepaid plans just released by the carrier let customers have the control without worrying about hidden fees or overages.
Verizon users who never have enough or too many data can buy an extra 500MG, 1GB or even 3GB for $5, $10, or $20, respectively. They will have to spend the additional 500MG within 30 days or they’ll have up to 90 days to use the 1GB and 3GB of data. Users can also go to the MyVerizon app on their mobile devices in case they want to make changes to their account and add even more data.
The company offers its customers several devices they can choose from, but it also allows them to bring their own phone as long as it’s compatible with the network.
The carrier also offers attractive alternatives to those with a basic phone who don’t care much about data. Verizon’s entry-level plan doesn’t include data and allows customers to use it with Wi-Fi for $30 per month so they can get unlimited texts, calls, and mobile web. A cheaper, $15 plan also gives them unlimited mobile web but limits users to 300 voice minutes, multimedia messages or texts, as well as any combination of these choices.
