Verizon Wireless has confirmed that its prepaid ALLSET plans will add support for 4G LTE smartphones starting on Thursday, July 17.

The announcement, which was previously rumored, means that smartphones that support Verizon's 4G LTE network can be used by ALLSET customers, which offers unlimited voice and text, along with 500 MB of data, for $45 a month. People who pay their bills via the Auto Pay method get an additional 500 MB of data per month. Users can also add 1 GB of extra data for $10 or 3 GB for $20, both with a 90-day expiration date.

The new ALLSET plan also extends to mobile hotspot features, which means that phones with that hardware can share their prepaid data connection with others via WiFi. Verizon finally joins with T-Mobile and AT&T in offering access to its fastest network for its prepaid customers. What do you think of Verizon finally allowing ALLSET customers a way to get the fastest network speeds on their smartphone?

Hmm, you still can't bring your own device.

Someone didn't read the source link...

Customers who already own a Verizon Wireless 4G LTE smartphone can “bring their own device” and activate it on the ALLSET PLANS. And those withXLTE Ready devices will be able to get faster peak speeds and greater network capacity in cities coast to coast.

From Verizon themselves...

I think the op meant bringing unlocked devices, not ones only approved and sold by Verizon themselves.

Exactly, if it's not an approved Verizon device.

DeerSteak says:

If it's not a Verizon-approved device it doesn't have the CDMA bands required to make phone calls. Not sure why you'd want to try to bring one. Nexus 5 for example might have the hardware to run on Verizon but it's not active.

That was going to be my question..... "Can I bring my Google Nexus 5 over to this ALLSET plan"? I am currently using Straight Talk (AT&T) but Verizon has a little bit better coverage in my area.

Casey DC says:

No the nexus 5 is gsm and Verizon 7ses CDMA tech for its voice calls. Additionally Verizon restricts devices that use its network to those that it has sold for 'network security' reasons.

The Nexus 5 is not VZW compatible, but it does support CDMA.

The Nexus 5 isn't compatible with the Verizon network.

Will pre paid plans have access to all of Verizon's cell towers?

Prepaid plans are usually on lower tier of service than postpaid. Usually you'll notice no difference in service, but when towers get crowded postpaid customers will be prioritized.

This is only a practice on Verizon for MVNO's. Which will still not have access the LTE network.

Arts_Lover says:

I hope this includes iPhones. My 4 is okay, but I want a newer one.

tmcb82 says:

It does. At launch their will be a certified iPhone 5 16GB available for a discounted rate, but any iPhone model will work.

mikesmith says:

Hmmm. My contract with VZ is currently up and this might be a way to go.

Can you buy as many 3GB extra as you need or do you have to wait for the 90 days to expire in order to buy another one?

4GB a month for $65 would be nice.

Justakiss14 says:

You can do 3 gb for $65 a month, the 90 days just means that if you don't add more money by then,then your prepaid account gets deactivated. So as long as you add money every month, you're good!

I'd still take the at&t plans, at least the lower end ones

Nice to see Evil Red joining the ranks... Alittle to late Verizon, what am I supposed to do with 500MB? I'm loving my unlimited 4GLTE on T-Mobile on postpaid, a lot better value..! CDMA sucks and I could care less with your prioritary network. If I didn't have T-Mobile I would have AT&T prepaid (Cricket).

I hit 30-65mbps regularly in my city.*
Verizon:
Unlimited talk / text + 500 MB for $49
Unlimited talk / text + 1.0 GB for $49 with autopay
Unlimited talk / text + 1.5 GB for $55 with autopay
Looks like Verizon's offering is overpriced unless they are the only company with coverage in one's area.
