I wanted to switch my current Verizon Plan to a Prepaid plan. All I want to do is buy blocks of minutes then buy more when they are used up. The Verizon plan is a pay as you go with a daily access fee. Does anyone know if Verizon offers what I need? I don't what to have to change providers and get a new phone and number. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Verizon Prepaid plan should be Pay as You Go
I don't believe they have anything that your looking to get. Verizon and I believe other Pre-Paid services do this as a way to say they have lower prices per minute, and charge 1.00/day for accessing the network, weather or not you actually speak.
You can keep your number if you port to another pre-paid carrier as long as your post-paid account is still active. There are several pre-paid options, as well as unlimited options with pre-paid carriers, which are becoming more and more popular. Straight Talk is new from tracphone, and is 30/month for 1000 mins and 1000 texts.. here is from wiki post
Straight Talk is one of TracFone's newest brands and as of 7/30/2009 provides customers with two different value based 30-day rate plans. Straight Talk is an MVNO that uses Verizon's CDMA 1XRTT wireless network which was introduced in 2001 and is said to deliver between 40 and 60 kbs (kilobits per second) to customers. Straight Talk's coverage is limited in certain areas (most of Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Mississippi and western Texas) but provides good coverage in the major metro areas. Only three phones are available for use with Straight Talk: The LG 200CM, Motorola W385, and Motorola RAZR V3a.
If that doesn't do it for ya, PM Me there are several others I know of that may fit your wants/needs..
