Prepaid DOES come with monthly fees AND a contract.

Summary: This is not necessarily a review of the phone, but of the prepaid service. They (Verizon) claim that the prepaid service eliminates monthly fees or contracts; however, you will still get a text message every month from Verizon Wireless stating that if you don't deposit the minimum refill ($15) your account will be canceled. Even if you have a balance in your account, you will get this warning text.
Summary: I got this phone less than a month ago and it's already been through the washer. Threw it in a bowl of rice, plugged it in to charge after leaving it in the rice overnight and it still works perfectly. Love the simplicity of the phone and how easy it is to navigate it.
