Apple on Wednesday posted details on its website surrounding voice, data and messaging plans that will be offered with the upcoming Verizon Wireless iPhone 4. The company also posted a utility intended to check subscriber eligibility, though it did not appear to be functioning properly at the time of this writing. Apple’s website confirms earlier reports that Verizon Wireless iPhone 4 users will only have two data options at launch: unlimited data for $29.99 per month and unlimited data with 2GB of Personal Hotspot and tethering services for $49.99 per month. Other plan details line up with current Verizon Wireless smartphone plans, for the most part:
- 450 minutes/month: $39.99
- 900 minutes/month: $59.99
- Unlimited minutes/month: $69.99
- Pay per use: $0.20 per SMS, $0.25 per MMS
- 250 messages/month: $5
- 500 messages/month: $10
- Unlimited messaging: $20
- Unlimited data: $29.99
- Unlimited data with 2GB for Personal Hotspot and tethering: $49.99 ($20 per GB for overages)
The only difference between the iPhone voice and messaging plans compared to Verizon Wireless’ standard plans appears to be the $20 unlimited messaging option. With other smartphones, the $20 messaging option affords subscribers 5,000 messages per month, and the carrier charges $0.10 per message for overages.
