Verizon has revealed a new pre-paid plan which takes dead aim at its competitors, specifically that magenta colored one. Verizon’s new ALLSET plans offer customers unlimited talk and text beginning at $35 for feature phones and $45 a month for smartphone customers.
To solve customers’ data woes, Verizon has created BRIDGE DATA which connects ALLSET customers with data service. The data packages are billed in addition to the ALLSET pricing and start at $5 for 500MB. BRIDGE DATA packages have expiration dates as well, providing some flexibility for data hungry customers.
Smartphone customers who sign up for the ALLSET plan will receive unlimited talk and text for $45. Data plans through BRIDGE DATA cost $5 for a 500MB package which expires in 30 days, $10 a month for 1GB of data expiring in 90 days and $20 for 3GB of data which expires in 90 days. While the expiration dates may not serve heavy data users well, data sippers could potentially spread out their data over 90 days. Customers can purchase a phone outright through Verizon or bring their own Verizon compatible or unlocked device to the table.
In addition to unlimited talk and text in the U.S., Verizon is giving ALLSET customers unlimited texting to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. New ALLSET customers will receive 1,000 minutes every month to be used for international calling to Canada and Mexico.
After all is said and done, you’re looking at least $50 a month for service plus data with the ALLSET pre-paid plan. T-Mobile still beats out Verizon when it comes to pricing on a plan such as this, with Verizon coming in at $10 to $20 more than their magenta competition. The price could be worth it to some, as Verizon’s 4G LTE network is currently the largest in the country, covering hard to reach spots where T-Mobile cannot.

AllNew Prepaid Plan Has Customers “ALLSET”
Similar to modern smartphones, which have different features to fit individual mobile needs, there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” wireless plan. Many people have their own mobile lifestyles, so it’s important to have options in order to find the plan that fits best. A prepaid plan provides offers flexibility, no annual contracts and access to the Verizon Wireless network – all at an affordable price.
The new ALLSET™ PLANS from Verizon Wireless, offer prepaid options starting as low as $35 for basic phones and $45 for smartphones with unlimited messaging and 500 MB of data, giving flexibility to those who need it. And for a limited time, smartphone customers can double their monthly data to 1 GB by enrolling in Auto Pay.
Customers can also further customize their prepaid plan with BRIDGE DATA, which allows users to add data to their accounts whenever they want. And any unused BRIDGE DATA in a current monthly cycle moves to the next cycle.
BRIDGE DATA options:
- 500 MB for $5 with 30-day expiration
- 1 GB for $10 with 90-day expiration
- 3 GB for $20 with 90-day expiration
Unlimited texting to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico is also included so customers can text friends and family in those countries at no additional cost. And for a limited time, new customers on the $45 ALLSET PLANS for basic phone or smartphones will receive 1,000 minutes a month for international long distance calling to Canada and Mexico. Smartphone users on ALLSET PLANS also have access to the mobile hotspot feature on their devices to connect their additional devices like laptops to Wi-Fi networks when available.
Customers also have options when picking a device for their prepaid plans. For those looking for a smartphone, the Moto G offers a 4.5-inch display and 5-megapixel camera for snapping photos. Users who want a basic phone can check out the LG Cosmos 3 with a QWERTY keyboard, allowing for fast typing and navigation.
