According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Verizon Wireless is prepared to introduced tiered data plans starting on October 28. The Journal reports that the new plan will offer customers 150MB for $15 per month, with overage fees costing an additional $0.10 per MB. Verizon Wireless will still offer unlimited data for phones for $30 per month. Verizon has been hinting all year that tiered data plans are coming, though it hasn't confirmed the specifics of this report from the Journal.

Does anyone know...

If this is only for Verizon's Smartphone lineup or for any data capable phone? Will they still have the $10 option for the 3G Multimedia phones?
This will add a tier to the smartphones. 9.99 for 25MB, 14.99 for 150MB and 29.99 for unlimited, I think.

It will go away, it won't be required. If they want data, it will be the same as smartphones. 9.99 plan will go away. Tablet pricing will be 1GB for 20.00 3GB for 35.00 4GB for 45.00 and 5GB for 50.00. If you go over, its 10.00 per GB. Also, something...

Article typo?

The article says that Verizon will still offer a 5GB cap for $30. The $30 plan is unlimited for phones. I read the WSJ and Engadget articles and they both say that Verizon will still offer unlimited plans.

Also, for those who don't use a lot of data, AT&T still offers the better plan. AT&T gives you 200MB for $15 while Verizon will give you only 150MB.
yea i read that too and wondered the same
...
"for those who don't use a lot of data, AT&T still offers the better plan. AT&T gives you 200MB for $15 while Verizon will give you only 150MB. "

What would I do without you to do my thinking and arithmetic?
