I really don't understand why Big Red wouldn't allow the iPhone to be on prepaid. As of today, you can activate any phone that is a VZW phone on prepaid. You don't have to buy it from Big Red as a prepaid phone. Any of their phones that they currently sale, as of 02-07-2011, will work just fine on prepaid. The only exception, is with Smart Phones they do require the Prepaid Monthly plans and of course the $30/month Data Pack. My idea on this is, if the iPhone is going to be just another phone with an ESN, and if you purchase at full price, what would be the reasoning behind Big Red not alloying us to use on prepaid. There actually making more off of someone on prepaid than they are on Post Paid plans. For one Prepaid customers have to pay an additional $5 a month. Also, your buying the phone out right, which that lands them the full value of the phone. And they should know, that if prepaid customers want service, they PREPAY so their guaranteed the money right off hand.
