As a Verizon Lifestyle Blogger, I have had the chance to learn a lot about Verizon Wireless, products that they sell, and services that they provide. TechyDad and I have been customers of Verizon Wireless longer than the eleven years we have been married. One of the latest items that I am learning more about are the prepaid phones and plans that are available. My oldest son is in his last year of elementary school. Thanks to this, we have to think about getting him a phone for security reasons for the start of middle school.
Why a Prepaid Smartphone?
Prepaid smartphone allow individuals and families to have a flexible way to utilize a phone with a data plan. The phone does not cost as much as some of the higher end options and there is no annual contract required, so there is no long term commitment. The phones comes with unlimited talk and text and then you select one of two data plans. For $60 a month, you get 2 GB of data and $70 allots you 4GB on Verizon’s 3G network. For young cell phone users, it keeps them safely in a plan where you will not have to worry about extra data charges. Replacement phones are will not cost you hundreds of dollars if lost, stolen, or broken. As a parent, I am intrigued in these options for my son once he gets a phone of his own.
Verizon Wireless currently offers several Prepaid Devices that you can purchase from them. One of the smartphones is the LG Optimus Zone pictured above. That is the same phone that Verizon sent me to giveaway to one of my readers. Some of the features of the phone include:
- Android 2.3.6
- 3.2” QVGA Display
- 3.2MP Camera
- 3G – WiFi Capable

This would be for my daughter whose in high school at the moment, I really need a way to keep in touch with her during the hours she’s away from the house.
Will probably keep for myself, otherwise I’ll give it to one of my four grown children.
My brother, who never has his phone charged. Or for myself as an emergency back up
holy Moses, i DO need this phone…i have the old school ‘talk & text’ only phone that just doesn’t cut it anymore…it could only be worse if it was the size of a small shoebox. great giveaway, thank you much!
I would love it for me! I still don’t have a smart phone.
I’d like to win this for myself!
I want a phone without a contract. This would be perfect!
I would love to win this for my granddaughter.
J-Man doesn’t have a phone yet. He is starting middle school and I know it’s coming. He hasn’t asked for one yet so I’ll hold out for now. Unless I win one.Then we’ll see if he’s responsible enough for a phone.
