    Does Verizon offer any daily phone plans?

    For the past few years I have been using a Verizon prepaid daily plan, I think it's $2 a day on the days you make or receive calls or send texts, along with a very basic flip-phone.

    Verizon has informed me that the phone model I am using will no longer be able to access their network at the end of the year, so I will have to get a new phone.

    I would like to stay on the $2 per day plan, but I'm not sure whether the plan I am on will be able to carry over to a new phone. (I realize everyone reading this will instantly wonder why I don't just ask Verizon this directly. The reason is that someone I know had the same plan and when he went to a Verizon outlet to reload the prepaid balance earlier this year, he was told that he would need to get a new phone and a new plan. I'm not sure that what he was told about not being able to carry over his plan was accurate, so I am asking here in case anyone else knows something different. Couldn't he have kept the same plan if he used the same sim card--assuming it's possible to use the same sim card?)

    I don't see Verizon advertising anything about a daily plan on their website now. ATT still advertises a $2 a day plan, and I think there are some MVNOs that may have daily plans, so I may need to change to one of them if it's not possible to keep this kind of plan now with Verizon.

    i believe Verizon no longer offers that plan - https://community.verizonwireless.co...ne/td-p/971519 the AT&T $2 daily plan can be used on a smartphone.

    Verizon extended the CDMA shutoff another year, so you have until the end of 2020 to worry about it.

    BUT you should be able to get a VoLTE enabled Verizon-branded flip phone and just do a swap with customer service.

    I'd buy something like that and just call customer service to ask for your plan as is to be moved to the new phone.
    Verizon: Grandfathered UDP
    T-Mobile: Magenta Amplified (airline employee plan)
    AT&T: Premium & More w/ Free 100Mbps VDSL2 "for life"

    Yeah, do this and then if they say you can’t keep the phone, ask them to apply a recurring bill credit for the difference between your current plan and the new one they make you switch to. If they balk, tell them it's that or leaving for AT&T's $2/day plan. They'll transfer you to Retentions, which has much more authority to offer special deals like that.
