Re: The big 4 can squeeze out MVNO's anytime
Actually VZW has been in the prepaid market since 2001. My first VZW phone (a VZW Prepaid Nokia 5185) that I carried around during my senior year of high school, which I graduated in 2002. They charged 35¢ per minute during the day on weekdays and 10¢ per minute on nights and weekends. They used to call it Freeup. I was only 17 when I signed up so Mom had to give VZW permission to put the prepaid phone in my name. Shortly after I graduated, they let me have postpaid with no deposit.
