The service:

Well given that Verizon is the largest service provider in the United States, you would expect to hear alot of pros and cons, but really the thing about verizon is they don't even really need to advertises as hard as other companies because they are a great service for business or the home. sure they may not be the cheapest provider but the have the best coverage and services. So don't expect anything less when you get a prepaid plan.
