    I see a lot of people mentioning that getting a pre-paid SIM from Verizon is near impossible (resorting in going to eBay) and that they will try to force you onto a post-paid plan. Why does it matter, why are pre-paid plans so much better then post-paid?

    Nothing wrong with postpaid but the barrier to entry is higher. Also, it's a lot easier to cancel a prepaid account than a postpaid one even if the postpaid is month to month. On prepaid, go to Settings, Cellular Data, View Account, Cancel, Delete Later (VZ SIM remains active for up to 5 months without paid service). On postpaid, prepare for at least a 1-hour call to Verizon customer service.

    Prepaid:
    $20: 1GB
    $30: 2GB
    $50: 5GB

    Postpaid:
    $30+10: 4GB
    $40+10: 6GB
    $50+10: 8GB
    $60+10: 10GB
    $70+10: 12GB
    $80+10: 14GB

    If you constantly need data and use a lot of it, go postpaid. If you only need data intermittently or don't need a lot of it, prepaid is better.
