Verizon Announces New Prepaid Unlimited Talk and Text Plan that Comes with 1GB of Data for $80

There is a new 3G prepaid plan arriving tomorrow that Verizon will be offering. It looks to be pretty good as it will feature unlimited talk and text with the added benefit of 1GB of data thrown in. You can get this all for $80 per month and no contract. Unlimited Mobile-to-mobile calls are inherent of the current prepaid plans but it’s suggested that Unlimited Talk will consist of being able to call any phone, anywhere. In the announcement Big Red also added some prepaid mobile broadband options to choose from. They include:

  • · $15 for 250 MB of data weekly
  • · $60 for 3 GB of data monthly
  • · $90 for 10 GB of data monthly
Hit the break below for the press release if you’re interested in reading more. While we will have to wait until tomorrow for this plan to go into effect, unlimited talk and text with a gig of data thrown in is not too shabby, although, it still doesn’t have Boost Mobile beat when it comes to unlimited prepaid plans.  Here’s hoping though that unlimited talk means being able to call anyone and everyone! Enjoy!

    Lol… $80 for 1 GB of smartphone data? And that’s prepaid. Verizon is such a ripoff. I know people love Verizon for how big their data network is but the fact that Sprint roams for free onto Verizon’s network and costs a fraction the price I think anyone who voluntarily gets ripped off by Verizon are a bunch of retards.
