Mandatory $10 Data Plan for "Enhanced Multimedia Phones"

Verizon is now requiring that users purchase a $10/mo data plan with phones equipped with a qwerty keyboard (virtual or physical), a web browser, and Rev A.

$10/mo gets you 25mb. What 25mb gets you on a 3 inch screen, I have no idea. Naturally, Verizon does not provide a tool to track data usage.

I imagine this is Verizon's method for making up revenue lost due to customers switching to the iPhone on At&T.

Why would a large company take reponsibility for their loss of market share when they can command many existing customers to fork over an extra $120/yr?

If you were looking for incentive to switch to the iPhone, hitting Verizon hard where it hurts might be enough for you.

#DATA is how you check your data usage

It's only required on one phone so far. And any phone released before sept 8 2009 doesn't require it either, whether it's a qwerty keyboard or not. Get ur facts right before you complain.

A min $9.99 data plan will be mandatory with all "enhanced multimedia phones" (as defined in the original post) going forward.

So, only on one phone for now. But all such phones going forward.

verizon will LOVE that tmobile is "giving away" android phones for $10. Yes, it is a subset of features, but those not willing to grab their ankles for verizon will run to tmobile for their dose of shiny

if you want to use the data step up and pay

I for one want to use the phone as... A PHONE:

make calls
receive calls
send sms
receive sms

that's it.

I expect EXCELLENT voice (highest quality DSP and vocoders) and EXCELLENT reception/broadcast (antennae not designed by a room full of syphilitic monkeys)

I had my fun getting the internets into my PDA 13 years ago. It gets old fast... and is old before it starts at an extra $30/mo

It's 30 dollar per phone for limited data plans now.
