In a move to add a little extra juice to the anticipated migration of iPhone users from AT&T, Verizon’s chief operating officer, Lowell McAdam, confirmed that the carrier would be offering an unlimited data plan at launch, priced at $30, to make a Verizon iPhone that much more appealing when compared to the tiered (and ultimately capped at 2GB) model that AT&T moved to in June of last year. Existing AT&T customers were able to be grandfathered in and keep the old unlimited for $30 plan, but new customers have had to choose between $15 for 250MB or $25 for 2 GB. If you don’t access a lot of streaming media on your phone, you might never touch that 2GB cap, but an unlimited plan is one less thing to have to worry about.
However, this is not a place where you should expect AT&T to have to bow to competition. This is a limited-time offer, so if you want an all-you-can-eat plan on that Verizon iPhone, you’ll want to move fast.
