Verizon gets rid of $15, 150MB wireless data plan

A leaked document shows Verizon's newly revised wireless data prices, Engadget reported on Monday. Compared to the old pricing scheme for smartphones and feature phones, the $15, 150MB monthly plan is no longer on offer, leaving only the pay-per-use option or a $30-per-month, unlimited data plan. Also changed is the data plan for feature phones, now priced at $10 for 75MB rather than the same for 25MB. The overage fee here is also changed from $0.20/MB to $10 for 75MB.

The change may be both to reflect a bias among smartphone owners towards the unlimited plans as well as an attempt to steer customers towards more profitable rates. It comes just before the iPhone 4 release at Verizon and could be meant to get as many on high-end plans as possible for the February 10 launch.

When these changes come into effect remains unknown, but it's likely to come soon and possibly before the iPhone debut.
