Verizon Wireless today confirmed to Phone Scoop via email that it is discontinuing the data-monitoring widget that it provided to its Android smartphones. Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney wrote, "The Data Widget is being retired in anticipation of the launch of the Share Everything Plans. Customers can continue to use the My Verizon app (available on all VZW smartphones) to monitor their data, voice and text messages.  Beginning Thursday, Verizon Wireless will add an enhancement to the My Verizon app that will allow customers on Share Everything plans to see and manage their account level data usage." Raney also noted that Verizon customers can manage their accounts online.
