Verizon Unlimited Plans, Last Chance

According to a report by All Things D, Verizon, starting on Thursday will require new customers to choose one of several usage-based data pricing plans. Rumors leaked late last month that Verizon may be removing their unlimited data plans.

Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney told FierceWireless that new smartphone customers will choose from one of three options: $30 for 2 GB, $50 for 5 GB or $80 for 10 GB. There will be an overage charge of $10 per GB of data. Verizon will also charge $10 for 75 MB per month for feature phone users. AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) charges $15 per month for 200 MB and $25 per month for 2 GB

It appears that an automatic update will be pushed to the Thunderbolt, Charge, and Revolution in the next couple days to cut off free hotspot capabilities. Access of hotspot service after the update will require the purchase of the $30 plan.
