If Cricket’s offer for the Moto E, didn’t entice you (or you lack coverage), then maybe this one will. For just $99.99, Verizon is selling the Moto E off-contract on its prepaid network.
Yes, this is the no-contract price, so there is no two-year commitment. If you potentially break your smartphone beyond repair, then this device could make an excellent substitute until you are eligible for a new contract-priced phone.
While the device is still running Android 5.0 Lollipop, Motorola and Verizon will no doubt update it to Android 5.1 sooner rather than later. The device ships immediately, and you should be able to pick it up from a Verizon store soon.
