Verizon launches Allset prepaid plans with rollover Bridge Data add-on

updated 02:04 pm EST, Tue March 4, 2014

Bridge Data bundles added to Verizon Allset plans, carries over to following month

Verizon has updated its prepaid mobile phone offerings, by launching a set of new plans with upgradeable data options. The Allset plans provide basic set services depending on the device, with customers able to pay for an extra allocation of data called "Bridge Data" that adds to the existing amount and can carry over from month to month.

The main Allset plan offers smartphone users unlimited talk and text with 500MB of data for $45 per month, which also includes unlimited texting to Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. The same plan is also available for basic phones, with an alternative $35 monthly option exchanging the unlimited minutes for a 500-minute allotment. For a limited time, Verizon is also including an allocation of 1,000 minutes per month for calls to Canada and Mexico for all $45 Allset customers as a limited-time offer.

Customers requiring more data will be able to pay for Bridge Data bundles, which will only start to get used once the main allocation of data has been exhausted, and will roll over between months until the pack expires. The 500MB pack costs $5 and has a 30-day expiry, while the 1GB and 3GB packs offer 90 days of usage, priced at $10 and $20 respectively.

Sadly, neither the Allset plans nor Bridge Data bundles offer connectivity to Verizon's LTE data network, leaving customers on the service using an LTE-capable device surfing at 3G speeds.

    And that is supposed to be a good deal? Verizon can go pound salt and sand.

    What shame that VZW is such a customer-unfriendly corp. It's all about the upper management being sleazy.

    I think the price is competitive. The main downside is lack of LTE otherwise I'd be tempted to switch from my postpaid Verizon plan.
