Verizon, T-Mobile offer 55 Plus plan for seniors

El Globo News

Those 55 and older can pocket up to $50 a month with Verizon’s Go Unlimited plan, which includes unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data. One line is $60; two are $80 per month with auto pay. This is a nice deal from the No. 1 carrier since one line of service normally costs $80 a month. Taxes and fees are extra.

Call the carrier or go to Verizonwireless.com/plans/55plus for the deal. The offer is good for current and new customers in Florida, Illinois and Missouri.

T-Mobile also offers the ONE Unlimited 55+ plan for those 55 and over for $50 a month for one line or two for $60 a month with auto pay. The price includes taxes and fees. One line of service is usually $70 a month.

If you’re a senior already paying for Verizon or T-Mo service, switch to the new plans to save.

But, if don’t use much data, look into budget carriers Ting Mobile, Consumer Cellularor GreatCall to save even more. Plans start at about $25 a month.

These no-contract services are top-rated by Consumer Reports, with readers ranking them above the Big Four carriers.

You can keep your current cell phone number and smartphone (assuming it’s in good working condition, paid for and unlocked) and buy wireless service from one of these cheaper carriers. You can buy new devices from them, too. SunSentinel.
