Verizon Wireless Prepaid Smartphone Plan Overview

$80 Unlimited Talk/Text/1GB of Data

This is a great option for savvy data users who want the power of a Smartphone without a contract and the freedom to pay for service only when they need it, when and where they want. For $80 a month you get unlimited talk, unlimited text including text, picture, and video messaging, and 1 GB of data. You can save their data allowance by activating the Wi-Fi radio to access the Internet.

What to do with 1 GB of data:

  • Send 100 emails
  • Browse 150 web pages
  • Listen to 2 hours music
  • Watch an hour of videos
  • And still have enough data left over to download your favorite apps

Backup Assistant Plus (Sync), at no extra charge, provides peace of mind knowing important information is always available online or on the device:

  • Save and manage contacts in your address book.
  • Synchronize in one unified mailbox multiple email accounts, including Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL and Windows Live Hotmail.

You will also have the option of pay-as-you-go rates applied to any account balance.

  • $0.25/minute
  • $0.20/text
  • $0.25/picture and video (data charges apply)
  • $0.05/MB (also applicable if the user goes over the 1GB data allotment.)



Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Samsung Illusion runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread). It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Samsung Illusion also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Google Integration
  • Android Market for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
  • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube
  • Google applications: Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk
  • Google Maps Navigation with spoken turn-by-turn directions showing real-time traffic and 360° views of the destination

I bought this phone a few weeks ago for my birthday and I love it. My family say I'm on it so much til I don't really do anything else. I mean this phone has everything that you can think of and it's prepaid. I have absolutely no complaints about it. I think compared to the Iphone, it's the 2nd best thing out right now. And I love how it takes great pictures and it has a camcorder. I don't really even get on the internet anymore because I can do that and more from my phone.

I got this phone to replace my old phone that I used to have with Cox Communications and T Mobile. This phone is like my G1, but without the QUERTY keyboard. The touch screen is just the right size compared to the Samsung Gem that was smaller than this one. I still have the case for the HTC G1 and the G1 is gone so this phone now fits in the protective case like a glove, so I know this is a great replacement for my G1. I hope my girlfriend gets one of these phones since it will help her with her smart phone needs. This phone has a headphone jack, but does not have a mini HDMI output jack to connect to a TV. It does not have FM radio, but can get internet radio stations and a lot of apps from the google play store. It's like my T510 tablet, but has a earlier version of Google Android, but most apps work on this phone than my Samsung Gem. It does load apps quick and I had fun playing games on it. The reason why I bought this phone is because I used to be a 4 year customer with T-Mobile. T-Mobile was charging me an arm and a leg and keeping me from upgrading to a new 4G phone. So going prepaid will help you save more money than staying with the contract. This is good for people who want to stay out of cell phone debt and have more money in your pocket. It's up to you!

Ive purchased the ILLUSION almost a month ago and its the best phone ive owned. It runs perfect with no complaints. I bought the :pay as you go: phone plan so I wasnt commited to contracts. I would most definitely recommend this phone to anyone who wants something simple to use with some extras. I rate this phone a 4.5, Only because I feel no device is perfect.

I got this phone and I'm glad I did. It has A nice sound system and lots of extras. This phone also has some of the best HD quality video your only find in higher in phones. I just down graded from A Motorola phone with some of the best high in features your see in newer phones today. But I don't miss it at all though. Samsung has always had great produces and this one is no exception. Great phone,great price, but the camera could be A little better but the good out way the bad.

My first smart phone and I love everything about it, except the battery runs low quickly. Charge it every night and you're good to go!

The phone is good, an entry level android. Verizon is greedy woth $80 a month. When my month of service is up is up I am going to straight talk for $45 a month - they run over the sprint network and it is unlimited for $45, The phone is good. I do like it but the money is a factor.
