    Way to little, way to late Verizon. If Verizon’s LTE network wasn’t so over subscribed I think they would open it up. I experienced the slow down myself over the last year.

    No LTE, no reason to use Verizon prepaid.
    The problem is other then the moto g and the iPhone 4S there are no real options for Verizon prepaid.
    Had they allowed LTE capable phones but using 3G perhaps that could have worked because there are more and more LTE phones getting put in a drawer (droid charge, bionic etc)
    What reason would people want this?

    People that want this are ones that want to stay with Verizon (free Verizon to Verizon mobile) but hate paying $80-90 for on post-paid. My wife is perfectly happy with the iPhone 4 and only uses less than 500 MB a month. If it wasn’t for all the taxes and fees that are accrued on top of the original plan on post-paid, I would go with post-paid. Nebraska has one of the highest taxes+fee percentage of all the states. I have to approximate about 20% onto my plan. So even if it is only 3g, it’s worth the price especially if you are around wifi 90% of the time. I will have to agree, why not allow 4G phones, but you can’t activate the 4G and only use 3g. They will have to sooner or later, or offer more phones like the Moto G, but with a heck of a lot more memory than 8 GB.

    Agreed they will have to do something sooner or later, those bell heads running Verizon still dont get that prepaid is the fastest growing market in the us.

    With rollover data packages and access to a hotspot included, this doesn’t seem like such a bad deal. But I’m using the ALLSET plan with a Moto G and I can’t figure out how to use it as a hotspot. The Tethering and mobile hotspot option has been removed from the settings and the various hotspot apps I’ve tried tell me I need a Mobile Broadband subscription from Verizon. Anybody gotten this to work?
