New leak expands on mandatory Verizon data plans

updated 01:10 pm EST, Thu November 13, 2008

More on Verizon data plans

A newly-leaked document has elaborated on earlier reports that Verizon will be removing the choice of low-end data plans for smartphones. All new smartphones sold on or after November 14th should indeed require a $30 data plan, the principal exception being Verizon's government clients, who will be able to continue on as normal. The restriction is expected to expand in 2009, when "Mobile Web 2.0" phones with a full HTML browser will be expected to have either a Connect or Premium Plan, or else the $15 VCast add-on.

Subscribers who already own smartphones will be able to continue with low-end data plans, however, whether data blocks, the 10MB package or Pay As You Go. Phones which were delivered to store before November 14th should likewise be safe, regardless of whether they are only sold later. Any move to a new phone will trigger the new minimums.
