Cricket Wireless had its turn with the Nokia 3.1 Plus last week, now it’s Verizon’s go at bolstering its prepaid phone offerings with an HMD Global device.

The Nokia 2 V, a slightly customized version of the Nokia 2.1, is on sale today in stores and online for $69.99. It’s a pretty solid, if basic phone, though it does offer a few treats like front-facing stereo speakers, a two-day battery and Android Go — an upgrade from Oreo to Pie will take place sometime in Q2, HMD Global assures us.

Verizon is tying the launch with a promotion it introduced this week where new and existing subscribers to its $50 monthly rate plan will get 15GB of LTE-speed data instead of 8GB for as long as their account is active.
