The Scoop on Verizon Wireless’ Unlimited Plans

vzwSome mighty juicy rumors started surfacing in the Howard Forums at the end of last week that Verizon Wireless would begin offering an unlimited plan, much like Sprint’s, on the 19th of February. It all started when a user spotted an internet ad on USAToday.com. Last night, Engadget leaked the meat of the rumor, and perhaps the biggest difference between this announcement and Sprint’s is that Verizon Wireless’ appears to be nationwide, as opposed to being limited to just five areas. The $100 unlimited plan will offer unlimited voice only. The unlimited voice and SMS plan will set you back an addtional $10 per month, followed by an unlimited plan with VZNav, Vcast, and e-mail packaged in for $140. Stepping it up another notch, for $10 more, Verizon tosses in unlimited data as part of its “Nation Wide Email and Messaging” plan. Unlimited international data will set you back a total of $170 a month, and finally, the $200 family plan offers two lines of unlimited voice, and each additional line will cost $100 more. It also seems that customers signing up for these plans will not be required to extend their contracts for two more years, and the 5GB cap on data downloads will no longer exist. I went undercover over the weekend at a local Verizon Wireless shop to get the inside scoop. When I asked the salesperson about the upcoming unlimited plan, he blushed, got awkward, asked where we heard the rumor (the Internet, of course) and then he said, “not that I know of” and walked away—even while I was pretending to be interested in making a handset purchase. Actions speak louder than words, O blushing salesperson. Stay tuned for updates, I have an inkling we’ll be writing a confirmation post tomorrow morning.
