DROID 4 and buy one, get one free deals on the DROID RAZR aren't the only thing that's hitting Verizon Wireless soon. The company has brought back its incredibly popular Double Data Deal, allowing new and recurring customers to get twice the data caps on smartphone data plans starting Friday, February 10th. That means the $30 2GB plan is bumped up to 4GB, the $50 5GB plan goes up to 10GB, and the $80 10GB plan will be 20GB. The plans last for the lifetime of your Verizon account and are equally valid on 4G LTE and 3G, but unfortunately can't be applied to MiFi-dstyle hotspot devices.
until an unspecified date in 2012.The information was released as Virgin Mobile confirmed that it's offering the LG Optimus Slider and HTC Wildfire.
Feature phones will be pay as you go only, while smartphones will have to choose between a $15/150MB and an unlimited option at $30. This is a great option for users who rarely use the data features on their devices ultimately saving them $15 a month. However, if you decide to go with the 150 MB plan and go over you will be charged an additional $15 for each additional 150MB you consume, so if you plan on using your smartphone regularly or even semi-regularly it's advised you stick with the unlimited plan. If you are unsure which plan would be best suited for you, be sure to check out Verizon's data calculator to determine which plan you need. [Via DroidLife]
