Default Verizon Prepaid - questions about not paying on time

i'm a bit short on cash.
I have the verizon prepaid Unlimited plan on my Droid X2, which is unlimited text and data, which they don't offer anymore.

I'm a bit short on cash this month, and i know i can do without my phone for a week.

My payment of $95 is due on the 26th of each month, and i wont get paid til the 1st, which is a week later.

Will my phone still be able to be paid and activated again?
I've read something about I have 90 days to pay it to get it back on, and keep the same number.

Do they charge a reactivation fee type thing?

I've been a contract holder for about 6 years now with verizon, and finally got out of that, so i'm new to all this pre paid stuff.
thanks

Why not call Verizon and ask?

Exactly what I was thinking. It's what I would do.

The reason you are short of cash is because you are paying 100 for a prepaid phone.

I realize that none of the responses directly answered you question, but my best guess is that no one on this forum has any experience with prepaid plans, in so far as they would pertain to your specific question. Bottom line is, none of us know for sure.

Hence our couple of responses to call Verizon directly and ask.

Good luck, (really)

When I was with US Cellular on their $50 per month plan, they would turn the phone off until you made a payment, they also would turn it on without any extra late fees etc. I can't really say how Vzw does it.

This was for unlimited Talk & Text plan.
