New data plans coming to Verizon
One for our tipsters sent us some information and pictures showcasing Verizon's new data plans that will go into affect on October 28th. Starting next Friday, Verizon will no longer classify some devices as a "3G Multimedia Phone" and is eliminating the required $9.99 data plan that included 25MB of monthly use. The new data plans are detailed below, but if you are a current customer you can keep the plan you are on.

3G Feature Phones - $1.99 per-MB pay as you go (if you don't use data, then you don't pay), $15 for 150MB (overage is $15 for another 150MB), and $29.99 for unlimited use.
3G Smartphones - $15 for 150MB (overage is $15 for another 150MB) and $29.99 for unlimited use.
3G Tablets - $20 for 1GB (overage is $20 for another 1GB), $35 for 3GB ($10 for 1GB overage), $50 for 5GB ($10 for 1GB overage), and $80 for 10GB ($10 for 1GB overage).
3G Netbooks/Notebooks - $50 for 5GB ($10 for 1GB overage), and $80 for 10GB ($10 for 1GB overage).
MiFi 2200 and Five Spot - $50 for 5GB ($10 for 1GB overage), and $80 for 10GB ($10 for 1GB overage). Or as part of a 90-day promotion $35 for 3GB.

No changes will be made to 3G USB Modems and PC Cards, which will remain at $39.99 for 250MB and $59.99 for 5GB. All Prepaid data plans will also remain unchanged, which include $15/day for 100MB, $30/week for 300MB, $50/month for 1GB, and $80 for 5GB.
