Verizon to cease data package requirement on new 3G feature phones

September 17th, 2010 at 6:01 PM

We’re not sure why the Verizon Wireless news always seems to appear on Friday afternoon… but it does. One of our VZW ninjas sent us in a memo (pictured above) that was distributed to select Verizon Wireless employees today. The communication details that beginning in Q4, Verizon will start to phase out the “3G Multimedia device” category and discontinue requiring a $9.99 monthly data plan on the new 3G feature phones being released to replace said devices. 3G multimedia phones that have already launched, like the LG EnV 3, will still require said plan until they are phased out. Good news for those who want a 3G feature phone with a full QWERTY keypad but not a monthly data plan. Aside from the feature phone news, the memo also reiterates that Verizon will be launching 4G, LTE data cards in Q4 (which we already knew). There you have it. Thoughts?
