Motorola Citrus Android Verizon Prepaid Review

Submitted by Eric Smith on Mon, 01/17/2011
 Motorola Citrus Android Verizon prepaid review. 

Within the last few weeks these Motorola Citrus appeared on the self at Walmart stores around the country offering a prepaid Android phone at a fraction of the cost it would normally be in a phone store. Priced at $179.88 with unlimited calling for $1.99 a day this phone will grab the attention of avid Verizon prepaid fans but as this is on the same shelf as Straight Talk phones, it will most likely stay on the shelf. If Verizon can come up with a cheaper plan they wont be able to push these phones. The phone it self is a typical Android Motorola phone, with all the perks. Sadly with out an unlimited Data plan for under $50 to go with the phone, they can keep it.
