7. Verizon - Best Phone Options
What We Like Most:
- Unlimited Plans Start at $40
- Latest Phones Available
- Unlimited, Shared, and Single Device Plans
- Discounts for Seniors, Veterans and First Responders
Cost: Starting at $40 per month for unlimited talk, text, and data
Verizon offers a variety of unlimited, shared-data, single-device, and international cell phone plans. It’s safe to say that Verizon also has the largest selection of smartphones out of any of the carriers we cover. From smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, wearable tech, and more, Verizon has everything under one roof.
For those over the age of 55, I’d recommend Verizon’s senior plan, which offers unlimited talk, text, and data for $40 per month per line, when you purchase two lines of service. This price becomes $60 per month when you purchase only one line, so this option is best for families or couples.
Verizon Wireless makes our list simply because they offer so much variety in the way of plan options, cell phones, and accessories all in one place. Their plans are more expensive than some of the others we have covered, so if budget is a concern, they may not be the right option for you. We like the flexibility of shared data plans as well as the various discounts Verizon offers.
