That was fast! Verizon is already looking to eliminate its $30 all-you-can-eat data plan. Verizon just recently made the iPhone available to its 93M customers last month.
The unlimited, or “all you can eat” data plan, was designed to lure switchers away from AT&T. Current AT&T customers dissatisfied with their service can still grab the $30 per month unlimited data plan for their iPhone 4, but Verizon does not see the unlimited plan as a “long-term solution.” Verizon will replace the unlimited plan option with a usage-based data pricing scheme instead. The announcement came from Verizon’s CFO Fran Shammo: “We see the potential of our customer base spending in that $30 to $50 range. As smartphone prices come down, more people will be able to afford them. We have to get those customers a sufficient entry point. We’re still wrestling with what that entry point is.”
AT&T also did away with their unlimited iPhone data plans last year right after the iPhone 4 launch, but grandfathered in users with active unlimited accounts. In other words, if you are an AT&T customer and want to switch to Verizon, then do it fast. This unlimited plan stuff is basically just a marketing tactic.
When you go to your local Verizon store to pick up a new iPhone, don’t forget to put your child on a leash and drag them around Alabama style.
