Verizon expands data options for prepaid users

Verizon prepaid users are getting a bump in data to start the year. Those who are on the $45 plan and previously allotted just 500MB, now receive double the data at a full 1GB. As if that's not enough, enrolling in Verizon's Auto Pay will net you another 500MB of data. The plan also includes unlimited talk and text, as well as unlimited text to Mexico and Canada.

The 1GB and 3GB plans also allow you to carry data over for up to 90 days, so you won't feel obligated to use it all up over a month's time.

We've seen a surge in prepaid phone plans recently, and it's no surprise since they're becoming more and more attractive. Verizon and other carriers are offering prepaid plans with more features than ever before, making them a great alternative to conventional postpaid plans.

If you're considering going the prepaid route on Verizon, be sure to check out our full list of the best Verizon prepaid phones.
