Verizon's approact to elimitaing unlimited data seems a little different but may be more effective than at&t's from what I can gather.
4G phones will require a 4G data plan and there will not be an unlimited 4G data plan option. All well and good- for now- but fast forward 18 months and any quality phone will be 4G, no high end 3G phone will be available. Fastforward further- there might not be any nice 3G phones, like you can get a flip or a low end feature phone and that's it.
I remember when I started there was a pretty even split of 2 and 3 G devices. Now I think we carry like 5.
At least for now the policy with at&t is you can keep the plan EVEN if you upgrade. If that stays the same in 2 years AT&T may have more unlimited data plan customers than Verizion and neither will have unlimited available.
