    Question Cheapest refill card to keep going?

    Hi Guys,

    I had my Verizon phone on the $50 unlimited plan. A couple of days ago, it expired, and now I don't wanted to spend the whole $50 to get the unlimited plan, instead, just recharge my account with the cheapest balance possible to keep the line alive, in case I want to stick to Verizon for my primary use, later.

    Can you guys tell me where I can get the CHEAPEST, minimum refill card to keep my line alive and WHERE can I get one? The one on their site is $35, I don't want to spend that for a line I will not use.

    Thanks for your help!

    Do you just want to keep your number?

    You could port it to Page Plus Cellular and pay a minimum of $10 for 120 days on the standard plan.
    I'm not sure what phone you are using on the Verizon unlimited plan, but for PP you need a Verizon phone that's not a prepaid model.

    If you want to keep your Verizon prepaid service alive, you can buy $30 cards that last 90 days.
    You might want to switch to the basic daily plan though.

    Callingmart sells cards for PP and Verizon prepaid.

    I think that the $50 you paid to start the plan last month still counts for a 3 month expiration. So your number will be kept reserved for 2 more months (plus 1 month grace period after that) even though you can't use the phone now with a zero balance because the calling plan has run out. In other words, the calling plan expiration is a different thing from the account expiration.

    Even with a zero balance try to dial #BAL or web browse My Verizon from the phone and see the expiration date.

    Thanks for the responses guys!

    No, I don't care about the number, I just want the Verizon account active, in case I go back to it, and not have to pay the ridiculous activation fee and etc.

    Is there anyway to confirm that the $50 phone plan will keep the line active for 3 months? I don't care about making calls, so 0 balance is fine.

    $30 minimum card sounds horrible!

    A do-it-yourself activation or re-activation should be free. Fees are charged by Verizon stores or if you order a prepaid on vzw.com.

    Have you tried to check the expire date on My Verizon?

    I recently activated a phone on Verizon prepaid and did the activation online and it didn't cost anything.
    Also I registered for an online account and I can manage my plan and check on expiration date or add refill cards right there.

    Also the $30 is good for 3 months, so only $10 a month.
