Verizon Wireless created a new calling plan especially for those over age 65 who don't need or may not be interested in the latest features. For $29.99 per month, seniors will get 200 anytime minutes and 500 night and weekend minutes for a single line. A two line plan is also available for $59.99 month, and includes 450 anytime minutes and 1000 night and weekend minutes. The plans are compatible with all Verizon Wireless handsets.

And the reason Verizon announces the plans...
Because customers like Verizon, and when Verizon offers something, people care. Maybe not the people reading this, but the majority of the public, which is who they sell to.
