Verizon Wireless has announced details of its tiered pricing structure, which goes into effect July 7. Speaking with FierceWireless, Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney said that customers will now be able to choose from four monthly data plan options—$10 for 75MB, $30 for 2GB, $50 for 5GB, or $80 for 10GB—with overage charges of $10 per GB. Raney also said that existing customers will be able to keep their unlimited data plans, including when upgrading to another smartphone. Verizon has offered unlimited data plans to all iPhone customers since the device’s launch in February.

Looks like I got my iPhone just in time :o and it looks like I’ll be staying with Verizon indefinitely, since grandfathered-in folks like myself will be the only ones with unlimited data.

You’re grandfathered into an unlimited 3G data plan. When everything moves onto faster networks you will need a new plan.

I’m not too worried about this stuff. Eventually the market will adapt to fit our mobile needs. Well, we’ll see. These are the same companies that charge us $20 bucks for texting plans…
