Verizon just a day before launched new set of prepaid cellular plans ALLSET after major revamping of its existing prepaid plans. The new prepaid plan from Verizon starts from $45 for smartphone users that offers unlimited talk, text plus 500MB of data. This much may not sufficient for many smartphone users and higher data usage shoots up their phone bills.
If you have unlocked smartphone, you have many more options for prepaid connections, bring your own device (BYOD). I have just compiled the prepaid plans available with Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). Basically these MVNOs buy and remix minutes and megabytes from the major service providers into plans of their own and offers at lower prices.

You can see that Freedom Pope offers the cheapest prepaid plans but it uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Zact’s prepaid plans are very good for families but it requires custom firmware which works with four specific phone models only. You can’t use your unlocked phone here similarly Republic Wireless also uses special firmware which works with two phone models only.
Helped in choosing prepaid plan as per your need!!, you may find more details on webpages of these Carriers.
