Prepay Without Losing Minutes?
I am a senior citizen with one Verizon low-cost plan and a Verizon prepay on another, older phone. The prepay is kept only for emergencies and I have now gone for 3 or 4 months without actually using it. We do not text; we do not take photos; we do not use it for getting email. Each month Verizon wants another $15 despite the fact that we have used zero minutes. Is there a better solution for an emergency phone that provides just a little more than the inherent 911 capability -- the occasional phone call -- such as a prepay where the unused minutes don't expire and where you're expected to pay only when you actually use the phone? We don't use the cellphones for long distance as we have digital landline with free long distance through our homeowners association.
