The latest installment of Verizon Prepaged SMS service is now available, and the provider is calling it a “premium SMS” service.
The service is billed at $50 per month and is only available for subscribers in the U.S. Verizon has also announced that its SMS provider will start charging for its service later this year.
Verizon Prepared SMS is available through its online marketplace, as well as its phone lines and in some markets with Sprint.
The SMS plans can be upgraded to a range of packages including $40 per month for unlimited talk and text, $60 per month plus talk, $80 per month text and $100 per month data.
Verizon says that the service will be available to both new and existing customers, although pricing is not yet available for customers who have had their SIMs removed or who don’t have an existing account.
