What You Need to Know About Prepaid Verizon Smartphones

If you are a customer and are looking for a month-to-month plan, or just do not use your phone enough for a traditional plan, then a prepaid smartphone might be right for you. This guide will provide you with more information on how to make calls at your convenience with a prepaid plan. As you will find, eBay offers a wide variety of refill cards and more from Verizon, at a variety of price points.

Which mobile phones are available for prepaid service?

There are a wide variety of new and refurbished phones available for the prepaid plans. They include smartphones from:

  • Apple
  • ASUS
  • BlackBerry
  • Google
  • HTC
  • Kyocera
  • LG
  • Samsung

You can also use basic mobile phones on the prepaid Verizon Network. LG and ZTE sell flip mobile phones for their prepaid service.

What are Verizon Wireless prepaid plans?

The prepaid plans are a way to be able to skip phone service commitments and the credit checks that come along with them while remaining on a reliable network. If you are looking for a contract-free experience, Verizon offers prepaid cell-phone plans that you can use on smartphones. The plans offer a variety of services, including unlimited internet data, texting, and calls. Unlimited talk can be a great option for business owners. In addition, your phone should be able to work with T-Mobile plans.

What does it mean to have a no-contract telephone?

A no-contract telephone is a wireless telephone or smartphone that is sold without a carrier agreement. Thus, you are not locked into a certain carrier for more than two years. Rather, it usually operates on a month-to-month commitment. With no-commitment wireless telephone deals, you have to pay the full cost of the wireless cell phone up front. This contrasts with normal telephone carrier contracts, where a company will subsidize your telephone cost since you are legally bound by an agreement for a set period of time.

How does a Verizon Wireless prepaid card work?

If you already have a smartphone, you can purchase a refill card to use on your phone. To use this card, go to the payment page on "My Verizon" for prepaid phone accounts. Here, you can enter your refill card pin and activate the card. Once you activate the card, your phone will be in service. If you do not have a phone, then you will first need to purchase one prior to using a prepaid card.
