Verizon iPhone 4: Will have $30 unlimited data plan

Not long ago all the talk in the tech world surrounded whether the iPhone would ever go to Verizon. Once we heard the Verizon iPhone 4 was at last to be released attention shifted to the next iPhone, the iPhone 5, expected in June. However many people waited a long time to see the Verizon iPhone and will be first in line to get one and for those people we have some good news.

It has been confirmed today that the Verizon iPhone will have a $30 unlimited data plan available. We had previously mentioned in an article looking at the AT&T vs. Verizon iPhone, that this plan currently existed and obviously many people were hoping that it would remain the same for the CDMA Verizon iPhone 4 but nothing was sure. Now Roger Cheng over on The Wall Street Journal reports that it is official.

The WSJ spoke to Lowell McAdam, Verizon COO, and he said, “I’m not going to shoot mysef in the foot,” adding that if Verizon didn’t offer its $30 unlimited plan it may deter AT&T users from switching over to Verizon for the iPhone. Verizon has waited so long for the iPhone it obviously wants to make the most of the opportunity.

Adam Ostrow over on Mashable reminds us that AT&T abandoned its unlimited data plan for new users last year and that by comparison, AT&T currently charges $25 monthly for 2GB of data. Are you happy about the confirmation of the $30 unlimited data plan for the Verizon iPhone 4? If you’re currently an AT&T iPhone customer are you thinking of switching?
