Verizon Prepaid makes some changes, now includes autopay discount and more


Just yesterday, Verizon announced changes to its prepaid plans to make them more competitive with rival offerings.

T-Mobile rolled out a "limited-time offer" for its unlimited prepaid plan.

Effective immediately, Verizon's pre-paid mobile plans start at just $30 per month, while topping out at $65, instead of $75 per month, previously. Pay $45 and you get 8GB, or opt for the $65 plan and remove the data cap completely. The latter featured unlimited 4G LTE usage in Mexico and Canada, HD video streaming, Voicemail to Text, unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi, and Name ID.

That's the case for T-Mobile's limited time offer: $50/month prepaid for unlimited data, but with big limits on video resolution and tethering.

The Magenta carrier on Wednesday introduced a new "limited-time" offer for those looking to save even more money over Verizon. A $45 unlimited talk and text plan with 8GB of data each month replaced the old $50 plan that included 7GB of data. In order to get the lowest pricing, though, you'll need to use Auto Pay. Using Auto Pay on the more expensive plans automatically gets you a $5 discount on the price.

Still, while both plans offer consumers looking for the best wireless service at the most affordable price attractive options; you'll be best served by scoping out the offerings via Verizon and T-Mobile directly to see which works best in your area.

With Verizon Prepaid, you can now also have up to 10 lines (up from five) on your account, and for the first time, add tablets and Jetpacks for the same monthly price as smartphones.
