Verizon Wireless Throws Low With New Smart Phone Plan

verizon-wireless-logo_000.jpgVerizon Wireless announced a new “E-mail and Web for Smartphone” data plan today for SMT5800, XV6800, and Moto Q 9m owners. While current “E-mail & Messaging” subscribers pay a minimum of $79.99 for 450 minutes and unlimited data access for e-mail, the new plan will give customers full access to unlimited Web browsing as well and will cost $69.98, for total savings of $10.01 per month for added features. The plan doesn’t include SMS messages, though, so plan on dropping another $15 per month for unlimited IN messaging and 1,500 outgoing messages. However, at that point you’ll be paying $84.98 when you could be paying $99 for unlimited SMS, Web, and e-mail with 450 minutes. In some respects, Verizon Wireless is just offering a Web/e-mail plan for smart phone users that don’t SMS much. Engadget Mobile suggests that users don’t tether their smart phones’ Internet connectivity with a laptop while subscribing to this plan either, noting Verizon Wireless’ choice to call the plan “E-mail and Web” instead of “Unlimited data.” Verizon Wireless says that the plan will be available to owners of other smart phones in the near future.
