When it comes to cell phone plans, Vivo makes a big mess with nomenclatures: o Techblog found that of all 247 plans listed in the public statement, there are, in practice, only 76 variants in Vivo Controle. However, a simple change of a letter or symbol makes similar services have different prices or features.

To check if your account will be readjusted, the operator has made available a website that informs the old and the new value, and if there is a change in the services offered. It is valid to check the package name as described on Vivo’s invoice; the list of plans reached is available at the end of the text.

The Vivo Controle 4 GB Annual, for example, cost R$ 44.99 monthly. The operator applied a 13.3% readjustment, and the monthly fee increased to R$50.99. As a “benefit”, customers of this plan will have 1 GB more internet every month and access to the GoRead, Babbel and Skeelo apps:

Very old packages were also readjusted: the Controle Plus or SmartVivo Controle with 2.5 GB of internet and 100 minutes for calls jumped from R$ 100.99 to R$ 106.99 monthly, for example. If you still have a service like this, it’s time to do a good review of your cell phone plan.

Vivo Easy Prime cashback bonus can be used to buy more internet or unlimited nights for apps like Netflix, Spotify and YouTube, for example.

Vivo Pre is a viable alternative to control

For those who don’t want to keep a plan in the control category, you can save some change a month using the Live Pre Turbo. See prices for fortnightly plans:

Flat Price
3GB, valid for 15 days BRL 14.99
4GB, valid for 15 days BRL 19.99

Considering two fortnights, it is possible to have 6 GB per month in Vivo Pre Turbo paying only R$29.98, or 8 GB with a monthly cost of R$39.98. It is also possible to get 1 GB bonus (valid for seven days) when you accumulate R$35 in recharge, and unused internet in the period accumulates for the following week.

As well as the control, Vivo Pré Turbo plans also include unlimited calls to any operator, in addition to WhatsApp without discounting the franchise.

The annoying part of prepaid is having to recharge, since the control has the convenience of sending a bank slip that can be placed in automatic debit. However, the monthly difference in cell phone charges is worth the extra effort – it’s not that hard, it will.
