There has been a lot of talk lately about a $50 prepaid unlimited plan that Verizon Wireless has been testing out in Southern California and Florida. Well the coffers at Verizon have decided to roll it out nationwide starting Monday September 12, 2011.
The plan is for unlimited voice, web and text and it’s $50 a month, sounds great right? Well it is if you have an LG Accolade, LG Cosmos slide-out QWERTY or the Pantech Caper. These are the only phones that work on this plan and they are all unfortunately feature phones. But heck this news could be great for some who are looking to control their spending while talking, texting and surfing without caps.

This is also a great primer package to get people used to using data.
Verizon was worried that the “Unleashed” plan may interfere with their new bracketed/tiered data plans that we smartphone users must have, however the market test proved minimal impact. Verizon is also taking an aggressive approach to getting folks out of feature and basic phones and into smartphones with $100 rebate.
