You can save money — and skip the contract and credit check — by going with a Verizon prepaid cell phone plan over a traditional plan. Verizon prepaid customers get a loyalty discount after three months on a qualifying monthly plan, making the carrier an appealing option for those shopping for a prepaid plan.
