Verizon To Abolish Unlimited Data Plans, Sign-Up Before It's Too Late
Verizon is planning on abolishing its unlimited smart phone data plan on July 7, but it's not all bad news: If you've already signed-up for an unlimited data plan by this date, you can keep the plan even when you upgrade or renew. What does this mean? Simple: If you're a Verizon iPhone owner, wander down to your nearest store, jump online or make a phone call, and sign-up for an unlimited smart phone data plan before it's too late! For $30/month, you get all the data you want - following the change (which, as mentioned, is scheduled for July 7), $30/month will only get you two gigabytes of data. It's incredibly important for heavy data users to be "grandfathered in" to one of Verizon's unlimited data plans. And what's more Verizon knows this, too. In an email send to its indirect retailers, the carrier says:
PLEASE, PLEASE make sure we take advantage of this heads up and get our heavy data users set up on these unlimited plans before they change.Which means that Verizon is going to be more than happy to sign existing customers up for an unlimited plan ahead of July 7. After this date, however, things change. So if you're a Verizon iPhone owner, turn away from your computer screen and speak with Verizon immediately. Many would kill for an unlimited data plan, and it's really good Verizon are allowing customers to sign-up for one now (as well as "grandfathering" them into the plan). Let us know if you sign-up for the unlimited plan in the comments. [via Gizmodo, Android Central]
