Verizon has joined many other carriers around the US and have decided to drop their unlimited only data plans for some tiered options. We now have a visual representation of what we will be paying for data on both smartphones and tablets starting the 28th of October.
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]
