Hello and happy Sunday heavenearthlove1,
I'm so happy to see that you want to enjoy all that our network has to offer with the comfort of prepaid service. The BB Bold is one of my favorite smartphones of all time. Since it is a 3G device, it can be activated on prepaid service. For additional assistance on how to activate it, our prepaid dept can be reached at 888-294-6804.

I have the same question as heavenearthlove1, I went to the link for choosing prepaid smart phones to go with your prepaid plan, and chose the link for having had my own phone, but (unless there is something wrong with it, or my computer) does not take one to a complete list of smartphones (old or new) that one can purchase to use on the Verizon prepaid smartphone plan. There are only 2 phones listed to purchase. If you use the link to activate a phone you already have, you need to have the phone already!
I, like many others, would like a greater choice of a decent smartphone for a reasonable price. And, unfortunately, paying full price is not reasonable.
So, is there a complete list of smartphones, somewhere, that let one see what smartphones can be used on the Verizon prepaid smartphone plan?
Thank you, KarenGS.
Thanks for reaching out to us KarenGS! I'm glad to see that you are interested in the latest and greatest in our prepaid technology. We are working around the clock to expand our device selection for our prepaid customers. May I ask is there a particular phone that you are interested in getting? If so then please advise as I can check for you. Keep in mind that 3G devices are currently eligible for prepaid voice service. 4G devices are not yet compatible at this time. Once you have provided the device then I can triple check for you.

Thank you very much Arnett, But my problem has been solved. I was able to
get a smartphone I was interested in and use it with a plan upgrade that is
not much more that what I was paying for my basic plan! Can't remember the
name of the customer service person who helped me, but he was great!
Thanks so much for your reply.
I have a very similar question and was happy to find this thread. It seems you mentioned 4G phones would not work for Verizon prepaid. Can you confirm whether or not a Droid 4 would work?
The DROID 4 is a 4G LTE smartphone and isn't compatible with the current prepaid smartphone plans.
I have heard it's possible to use a Samsung Galaxy S3 with the prepaid plan as long as the LTE/4G is switched off...is this true? I am really unimpressed with your selection of phones for the prepaid plan and the fact that they are way overpriced at that. I have access to a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 and I really like it. Would love to be able to use your prepaid plan with it.
