What’s more annoying than attempting to make an urgent call on your Verizon prepaid cell phone only to hear a recorded voice slowly informing you of your current prepaid phone balance and how much you can use on your current phone call. When you need to make a call from your cell phone the only sound you want to hear is the ringing of the phone which means your call is going through.

If you use a Verizon pre-paid cell phone you can easily disable these annoying balance alert notifications. You have two options. You can either disable it using your prepaid cell phone or you can log onto your account at Verizon Wireless to turn it off.
