Verizon Unlimited Data Plans Officially Announced

Verizon has officially confirmed rumors from last week that hinted at the possibility of an unlimited data plan for the upcoming iPhone 4. In a statement today, Verizon COO Lowell McAdam revealed that the carrier will charge a monthly $30 fee for unlimited data access on the iPhone. He conceded that one of the key challenges that the company faced was in attracting customers from AT&T and offering such a plan would make the transition for these subscribers easy.

Verizon’s statements have however not confirmed the official prices for the CDMA iPhone. It is interesting to note that JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz had predicted last week that the Verizon iPhone could be priced $20 to $30 higher than the GSM variant owing to the higher price of CDMA components. While we remain skeptical about this, we will be interested to hear more from the horse’s mouth. Stay tuned here for more.
