Verizon's Unlimited plan is $80 per month.
It includes Unlimited minutes, Unlimited texts and Unlimited of data per month. You can use up to 25GB as hotspot data.
Verizon uses the Verizon networks to provide coverage.
This plan has premium data.
Premium data gives you slightly faster data speeds during times when the network is busy. This includes being at sports games, stadiums, concerts, airports, or other crowded areas where a lot of people are on their phones. Keep in mind that a lot of people using the network at the same time will still slow down data speeds for everyone, regardless if you have premium data or not.
Video streams at 4Mbps on this plan.
That's fast enough for watching videos at about 720p HD resolution.
Verizon's Unlimited plan supports:
It does not support:
You can add a smartwatch to this plan for $5 per month.
You can add a tablet line to this plan for $10 per month.
Unlimited texting from the US to over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
International calling add-ons are available starting at $5/month.
1 TravelPass Day is included each month, and you can accumulate up to 12 TravelPass days. Each TravelPass includes unlimited talk, unlimited text, and 2GB of high-speed data in 185+ countries for 24 hours. After 2GB of data, data speeds are slowed to 500Kbps.
Overall, I recommend Verizon's Unlimited plan. I think it is a great overall value in terms of its price, its features, and how much high-speed data is included.
International texting notes: Unlimited texting from the US to over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
International calling notes: International calling add-ons are available starting at $5/month.
Canada and Mexico notes: Free unlimited talk, text, and data in Canada and Mexico. Data speeds at full speed for 2GB per day, then reduced to 3G speeds. (I'm assuming the 3G speeds are 500Kbps, but I haven't been able to verify yet).
International data notes: 1 TravelPass Day is included each month, and you can accumulate up to 12 TravelPass days. Each TravelPass includes unlimited talk, unlimited text, and 2GB of high-speed data in 185+ countries for 24 hours. After 2GB of data, data speeds are slowed to 500Kbps.
Robust coverage, fast data speeds, and a slightly premium price to match the premium service. Verizon Prepaid offers excellent account features and service, and with strong coverage across the United States, it remains a great option for many individuals.Learn More
Verizon’s Monthly International Travel Plan is intended to be used for longer trips. It bundles a monthly allotment of minutes, texts, and MB of data that remains active on your account until you remove it.
The Monthly International Travel plan is $100 per month in addition to the cost of your regular Verizon plan. This plan works in 185+ compatible countries.
It includes the following features:
If you run out of minutes, texts, or data, Verizon will charge you the following overage rates:
Verizon’s Pay As You Go rates allow you to pay per minute, per text, and per MB of data that you use internationally.
You will only be charged international pay as you go rates if you choose to enable international service on your account, and you decide not to get Verizon’s TravelPass or Monthly International Plan.
If you do not enable international service, then you will not be charged the pay as you go rates.
Verizon’s pay as you go rates are as follows:
These rates may be reasonable for lighter international data users. However, they can be quite expensive for more moderate to heavy use. For example, using 1GB of cellular data costs $2,050 with Verizon’s pay as you go rate system.
Be mindful of Verizon’s pay as you go rates if you choose to enable international features and do not opt for either the daily TravelPass or Monthly International Travel Plan.
Verizon’s TravelPass is an add-on available for their postpaid plans that allows you to use your phone while traveling abroad.
The TravelPass includes the following features:
You can add a TravelPass to your Verizon plan by texting “travel” to 4004, or by following this link.
