Verizon debuts $80 prepaid plan with unlimited talk and text; 1GB of 3G data

Verizon Wireless will target prepaid customers with a new 1GB plan that gives you unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of 3G data, the company announced today.

Verizon’s new plan, as much as it seems like a solid all-around deal, does have two snags: You have to buy a Samsung Illusion for $170, and the Illusion only works with 3G networks. It’s a decent offering, but it might not be as appealing to budget customers as similarly-styled plans from MetroPCS, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and Cricket.

Verizon also announced that it will offer new prepaid data plan options that you can use if you buy a Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4510L. The new plans are as follows:

• $15 for 250 MB of data weekly
• $60 for 3 GB of data monthly
• $90 for 10 GB of data monthly
