Verizon is introducing a new app and plan options that allow customers to change their plan size and preferences as often as they want and when they want. The plans provide more data than Verizon’s previous offerings, but also have higher prices. They’ll be available beginning July 7, the company announced on its website.
Verizon Plan options will allow customers to choose from five different data plans that can be changed at any time and without penalties, per the announcement. Each size comes with unlimited talk and text. The plans are:
- Small: Now $35/month for 2 GB (was $30/month for 1GB)
- Medium: Now $50/month for 4 GB (was $45/month for 3GB)
- Large: Now $70/month for 8 GB (was $60/month for 6GB)
- X-Large: Now $90/month for 16 GB (was $80/month for 12GB)
- XX-Large: Now $110/month for 24 GB (was $100/month for 18GB)
Current Verizon customers can keep their current plan for now, the company said on its website.
Verizon’s new app provides a real-time feed about your data, account and bill, along with personalized products and content. This includes the Data Hub, where customers can see how much data is being used, who is using it and how to get more if needed; a shop allowing customers to browse, buy and customize devices; on-demand support for immediate answers without calling for help; and a simplified bill statement. You can find more details on Verizon’s website.
Remember, it’s a good idea to read the terms and conditions of any contract or plan you are considering to be sure a particular service is right for you. It’s also good to note that a credit check is required by almost all mobile service providers. If you don’t have an acceptable credit score, you may not qualify for the best rates or plans. That means it’s a really good idea to check your credit reports and credit scores — you can do that using a tool like Credit.com’s Credit Report Card, which gives you two credit scores every month for free — before you shop for a cell phone or new service.
