Verizon Prepaid Data Plans Get Official on BlackBerry, Android, Palm and Others

After some pretty heft hints earlier this week, Verizon prepaid plans have gone live on a wide variety of handsets. It’ll cost you $30 for unlimited data for the month, or those with feature phones can 25 MB for $10 month. Verizon recently changed their prepaid mobile broadband plans, so offering something on the smartphone front seems like a natural follow-up. The list of supported devices is almost identical to what we had seen before, though the Samsung Fascinate won’t be there until the 9th.

As someone who travels to the U.S. every once in awhile, I could see prepaid data being useful for a quick data kick since I have a Verizon Storm kicking around, but surely more casual data users who only want to pay for what they use will be interested in a prepaid plan. The selection of device available is substantial too, which is a nice change from the usual low-end castaways that get lumped in with prepaid plans.

The plans will show up on Verizon’s site on September 28, so if you’re really hankering for this service, head on over to your local dealer.
