Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to Prepaid, Plus Enjoy Flexible Plans

Activate your unused Verizon Wireless Phone on a Verizon Wireless Prepaid Plan—now available on the 4G network—to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of No Annual Contracts and No Credit Checks.

The ability to bring your own Verizon Wireless device (BYOD) to Prepaid with No Annual Contract is perfect for anyone looking to escape the commitment of a long-term contract. What does Bring Your Own Device mean for you? It means you pay for what you want, when you want it, on a device that you already have. And now you have the option of a prepaid monthly plan with your basic phone, 3G smartphone or 4G smartphone.

Activate your unused Verizon Wireless phone

Do you have an unused Verizon Wireless basic phone or Verizon Wireless smartphone sitting in a drawer? Now you can activate both 3G and 4G devices on one of Verizon’s prepaid monthly plans. It’s all about saving money by reusing something you already have.

Pick a plan that’s right for you

Flexibility is the key with Verizon’s Prepaid plans—and now it’s easier than ever to pick a plan that works for you. New pricing allows you to customize your plan to meet your needs. With Verizon’s monthly plan, you pay one low fee for your monthly access and then personalize it by adding the data you need. So, if you have a basic phone, you can get a plan with 500 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited Text and 500 MB of data for just $35 per month. Get Unlimited Minutes for just $10 more per month.

Smartphone users have additional options. Both 4G and 3G smartphone plans are $45 per month for Unlimited Talk and Text, plus 1 GB of data. Get 500 MB of extra data monthly when you enroll in Auto Pay. Plus, you’ll get Unlimited Text Messaging to Mexico and Canada from the U.S.

If you need more data, just purchase the data option that works best for you—whether you have a basic Verizon Wireless phone or a Verizon Wireless smartphone. Just $5 gets you another 500 MB to use within 30 days. Add 1 GB of data to your plan for $10 or 3 GB for $20, and you have up to 90 days to browse the web, stream music and movies, check email and so much more before your data expires. You can add up to two data packages at a time, with data from the second package being held in reserve until the first package expires or is exhausted. You can use your data until it expires, as long as you have an active and funded monthly plan.

No Overages, No Fees

It’s easy to get started with a Verizon Prepaid Plan. When you bring your own Verizon Wireless device, you can keep your existing number or get a new one. There is no activation fee and no annual contract. Manage your account online or from your device with My Verizon. You can view and control your usage, customize your features and change your plan when needed.

With your own Verizon Wireless device and the ability to add more data whenever you need by logging into My Verizon or dialing *611, you’ll truly enjoy a flexible plan that meets your personal needs. Sign up for your Prepaid Monthly Plan online at or by dialing *22898.
