iphone step1 us prodselect verizon logoVerizon will be dropping its unlimited data option, and transitioning to tiered data plans next month, a Verizon spokeswoman told All Things Digital.

We will move to a more usage based model in July. We'll share more later.

We've known for a while that the unlimited data plan Verizon has offered since it launched the iPhone 4 was likely to disappear this summer.

One site, DroidLife, claims to have details of the new Verizon plans. The site claims these plans will go into effect July 7.

2GB - $30/month
5GB - $50/month
10GB - $80/month

Tethering is an $20/month add-on and includes an additional 2GB of data.

Overages are assessed at $10/GB.

For comparison, AT&T's data plans are slightly cheaper:


200MB - $15/month
2GB - $25/month
4GB + Tethering - $45/month

Overages are assessed at $10/GB.

AT&T dropped its unlimited data plans last June, just before the iPhone 4 was released, but allowed current unlimited plan subscribers to keep their plans as long as they didn't make any changes. Most notably, unlimited data users can't sign up for a tethering plan to create a portable wi-fi hotspot.

I really feel sorry for all the Americans who get absolutely SCREWED with the pricing of their plans.

The iPhone is the only Apple product that is better value for us europeans than the Americans.

Agreed.
Well, I'm sticking with AT&T. There's no reason for me to pay Verizon more money for slower data service.
Haha, Apple needs to make a Virgin Mobile iPhone :p

So Sprint doesn't need to oppose the AT&T/T-Mobile merger since they will probably be getting more customers then they know what to do with.

You mean that we'll be able to pay more for a slower, less-capable network?

Sign me up!


I hate AT&T as much as the next person, but Verizon truly sucks on pricing.
