Verizon Wireless has expanded its prepaid service options, giving customers greater flexibility by letting them pay a per day access fee.
The carrier has three different plans that it has started offering:
- The "Core" plan has a daily access fee of $0.99 and offers unlimited in-network calling. All other calls are $0.10 per minute.
- The "Plus" plan has a daily access fee of $1.99 and offers free night calling.
- The "Power" plan has a daily access fee of $2.99 and offers free night and weekend calling. Out-of-network weekday calling is $0.10 per minute. Text messages for all plans are $0.10 each and multimedia messages are $0.25 each.
Prepaid users can also use their accounts to access Verizon media services like VCast and VZ Navigator. Prepaid service has been growing in the second half of 2008 as the economy has worsened and credit has tightened up.
