We hear earlier this week that Verizon wasn’t going to get into a pricing war with AT&T and T-Mobile, but it kinda looks like they just did. Verizon is known for being the most expensive, but they can get away with it since they have the best network out there. However, according to Droid Life, it looks like they just dropped a couple of new plans that look mighty enticing.
First up is the $75 plan, which is only for one line, and judging by the image below, it appears to be including unlimited voice and text and 2GB of data, with additional data being priced at $15/1GB. Then there’s the $60 plan which is basically the same but has 1GB of data, with additional data being priced at $15/500MB of data. According to Droid Life, it appears that this is a no-contract service, and you can lower the monthly price by $10 if you sign up for Verizon’s EDGE, but then your price will go back up a bit depending on which phone you choose on Verizon Edge.
However, we are hearing that the SAVE plan isn’t being advertised and you’ll need to ask for it, which makes sense. They want to sell the more expensive plans. The $60 SAVE Plan and $75 single line plan have the same features, unlimited talk and text along with 2GB of data, but with the $60 SAVE plan you are signing up for a 1-year contract. Which I actually think is fine. It’s much better than those two year contracts or the three year contracts that Canada just recently got rid of. But this one is a secret plan so you’ll have to ask for it and to qualify for it you must be within 12 months of a contract end date or already out of contract.
These plans sound really good, especially for those near WiFi all the time. I’d love to see unlimited data come back to Verizon, but I just don’t see that happening anytime soon, unfortunately.
