I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but Verizon's unlimited all-you-can-use 3G unlimited data plans are coming to an end. That means all of you on grandfathered-in data plans who want to upgrade to 4G LTE plans will have to give it up.
Well, the all-you-can data party Verizon's been throwing may be ending sooner than later, folks. In fact, if you were waiting for the iPhone 5 and hoping to nab an unlimited plan to go along with it, you probably won't be able to do that.
Already heard the one about Verizon getting the iPhone 4 in a couple of weeks? What about Verizon offering an all-you-can-use unlimited data plan that isn't capped at 2GB like AT&T's? The boxing gloves are on, and Verizon is swinging hard at the once exclusive U.S. iPhone carrier.
On October 28th, Verizon is going to introduce the kind of tiered data plans that AT&T adopted not too long ago. For AT&T customers, it was a pretty big bummer: unless they were already unlimited data customers, there was no way to become one. Turns out, Verizon isn't going to ditch unlimited, at least not yet.
AT&T's decision to axe unlimited data plans earlier this month could have hit you in one of two ways. Either you were worried that you would go over and have to pay more, or you welcome the discount, glad you're not paying for anyone else any longer. No matter how you responded, you better get used to it at the very least, an analyst says.
