    The fact that they've been so tight-lipped about plan costs, especially 2 weeks before pre-orders start (for existing customers) and 3 weeks before it officially goes on sale makes me skeptical about them offering unlimited data with it.

    They've been wanting to move away from unlimited data for almost a year now.

    I would imagine they're just protecting themselves from potential backlash if they do have to change the rate plans. I would imagine >$30 for unlimited more than I would imagine $30 for limited (2gb-5gb) data. And I see them offering more than 2gb if they do limit it, just to steer people away from using an unofficial tethering application and loading tons of data off their phone to their laptops.

    The 5GB cap was something that most people who cared to look deeper into it already knew about. At least I already knew about it. At least theyre giving 5GB for $30 rather than AT&T giving 2GB for $25.

    I am a longtime Verizon Wireless customer, and this morning I ordered a VZ iPhone4 for my daughter. It requires a minimum of a $29.99 unlimited data plan, or $44.99 for a "corporate" data plan (whatever that is). But at the bottom of the page it says:

    My daughter has the $15 150MB plan on her current Alias2; apparently they will let us keep that if I call.

    Even if they do, It's very likely that she will burn that up within 2 weeks. Unless of course she does nothing but check email and barley browse some web pages.

    +1. heavier data users will use 150MB quick. I use that in 3-4 days but I'm a pretty heavy data user. 150MB is for people who very rarely use it, like they'll use it to google something up real quick or like you said, send/receive a few emails now and then.

    Perhaps she will change her habits, but she's had zero data use on the Alias2, even though the 150MB data plan is required. She does need the $20 texting plan. She rarely surfs on her iPod Touch 3; mainly uses music and videos she syncs from her Mac, and plays a few games. We will see.

    That scanned paragraph from the feature selection which I posted above in post #14 on the previous page, about being able to keep an existing data plan such as 150MB/$15/mo., is not being honored by Verizon. I talked to a representative and a supervisor, and they would not let me downgrade from the unlimited plan. Besides, they discontinued the 150MB/$15/mo. plan on Jan 30th, I think they said, and replaced it with a 75MB/$10/mo. plan, which I also could not switch to. So I'm stuck with $29.99 a month no matter how little she uses.
