    I would say they activate them just like any non 4G/lte phone they sell such as a flip phone and some of the older smart phones they sold such a the Motorola X and the X2. I just sold my old Motorola X a week back and the guy took it into the store got an account and activated it. He walked out of the store and called me to let me know. I later looked on my account online and it did show as VZW M2M call. He just needed a cheep phone that he thought was a cool phone which he could call, text, and web. He bought it from me for 35.00. Don't know what kind of plan he got but this pre paid would seem like it would fit his needs. Don't know if those calls would come to other VZW customers as M2M or not.
    I think the X and the X2 were 3G phones, I know the X was. Thus that is why they could be activated on a prepaid plan.
    Just to be clear.. DROID X and DROID X2.

    Both the Droid X and X2 are 3G phones and don't require a SIM card to function, thus allowing them to be activated on pre-paid. 4G phones on Verizon can't be activated without a SIM card thus not allowing them to be activated on pre-paid.

    Any updates to this? Is this a mistake by Best Buy?

    I believe so. Most of the 4GLTE devices has been removed. There is a lg exceed 2 listed as 4GLTE, but per Verizon's prepaid page, the device isn't 4GLTE.

    Any of these Verizon prepaids easier/safer to root than others?
