Downloading Apps on Verizon Prepaid Phones

While waiting in the doctor’s office the other day, I decided to play with my cell phone a bit. Instead of killing time by starting a texting conversation, I decided to see what sort of entertainment my phone could provide.

Checking Account Balance

I thought it wise to check my account balance to see how much money I had to play with. Much to my surprise, my balance was a lot higher than I thought (I don’t use it much so $100 worth of air time lasts me a year), so I knew I had enough of a balance to buy a game or two.

Downloading the game was as simple as accessing the Media Center menu and scrolling down and selecting Games. There I saw the “Get New Application” option. Since I didn’t have any games loaded on my phone that was the only option I saw.

Downloading Games

After selecting Get New Application, the Verizon phone connected with the games database. The games were categorized, Puzzle/WoBejeweledrd, Sports/Racing, Classic/Arcade and more. After I made my selection, the phone connected to the database and brought up another long menu list of games.

Not being familiar with the game titles, I selected each game to get an idea of what it was all about. Since I don’t normally play games on my phone (the screen is just too small), I opted for a no brainer type of game such as Bejeweled. Fortunately, Verizon was running a sale so I was able to get the game for $3.99.

Once I selected Bejeweled, $3.99 was taken from my available air time and the game downloaded. I was able to play a few rounds before the doctor called my name.

Verizon sure does make it easy to buy apps (whether necessary or not) for your prepaid cell phone.
