Verizon Wireless recently revealed two new Prepaid calling plans called the Prepaid Unlimited Talk and the Prepaid Basic for customers. Verizon will also be automatically updating customers who are in the Prepaid Plus plan with the Unlimited Weekend Minutes service.
The novel Prepaid plan services will free customers from long term contract services by offering them more options with the prepaid plans.
Speaking individually of the plans, the Prepaid Unlimited Talk plan is a great choice for heavy wireless users. The plan will offer customers unlimited calling to anyone on any network across the U.S. for a daily access fee of only $3.99. The feature will charge users only on the days they make and receive calls. The plan also allows users to send and receive all text messages for $0.01 per message.
“These plans match the needs of today’s prepaid user,” mentioned Jeffrey Dietel, vice president – marketing operations for Verizon Wireless. “Customers can select the plan, the text messaging feature and match it with just about any Verizon Wireless phone. Essentially, they are designing the service that works best for them and their wireless budgets.”
The next plan is the Prepaid Basic plan which has been designed keeping in mind users who don’t use wireless services frequently. Minus any daily access fee, the plan will allow customers to enjoy calls at $0.25 per minute of talk along with text messages sent and received at $0.20 per text message.
Users who come under the moderate usage bracket have an option of choosing the Prepaid Plus plan. The plan allows customers to enjoy unlimited mobile to mobile calling with access to more than 80 million Verizon Wireless subscribers. The plan includes a service called Unlimited Nights & Weekends that comes for a daily access fee of $1.99 only on the days customers use the plan. For all other calls, users will have to shell out $0.05 per each additional minute and for each text message sent and received.
Verizon offers text, picture and video messaging bundles to all Prepaid customers with unlimited messaging for $20 per month. Customers who use the text message feature more often can choose a $10 unlimited in-network option that offers them 250 messages to anyone on any network.
Prepaid customers who currently wish to switch to the Prepaid Plus plan simply need to dial #PLAN (pound key 7526 and send) from their Verizon Wireless phones.
The new Prepaid plans are available now at the Verizon Store for new customers. Retailers will start selling the plans from March 15, 2009.
