Question [Q] Moto G Boost Mobile or Verizon

Hi, few quick questions.

Question #1
Which prepaid Moto G should I get? Boost Mobile one or Verizon one? (I can't go with the $199 unlocked one. On a budget).

Question #2
Which plans do you think is better? I don't download/stream/talk/text much, btw.

Boost Mobile $55 Plan
Unlimited talk, text and data $55/month
boostmobile.com/shop/phones/moto-g/#/page_plans

Verizon $45 ALLSET Plan
Anytime Minutes* Unlimited
Mobile to Mobile Calling* Unlimited
Text Messaging* Unlimited
Data* 500MB

I want the Boost Mobile one, because I heard/read that it is unlockable bootloader and rootable and I want custom roms, kernels, mods (I might just get Boost Mobile one because of this and do USB-OTG microSD/flash drive for more storage space), but I think the Verizon plan is better and cheaper? but bootloader can't be unlocked. I'd never own a smartphone before, so any help/advice would be nice.

Page plus is an MVNO that works with Verizon signal. Boost phones can be hacked to work, walkthrough on another thread.

Boost phones can be unlocked, but Verizon can't.

Page plus plans are $30 for 1200 minutes, 3000 texts, and 500mb, $40 for unlimited talk, text, and 1gb.
