Verizon to offer $30-per-month unlimited data plan for Apple iPhone 4
Verizon is going to offer an unlimited data plan for the Apple iPhone 4, at $30 per month, echoing a plan that AT&T offered when the iPhone first arrived.
AT&T stopped offering unlimited data plans to new customers last June, just before the iPhone 4 hit its stores.
Lowell McAdam, Verizon's chief operating officer, confirmed the unlimited data plan for the iPhone 4 to the Associated Press on Tuesday.
"That's a competitive advantage for us right now," McAdam said. But the offer isn't permanent. Verizon is going forward with its plan to switch to limited data plans soon, he told the AP.
Verizon will begin selling its version of the iPhone 4 on Feb. 10.
