Older data plans will work with Verizon's Apple iPhone 4?
posted by John V. / Feb 03, 2011, 2:37 PM
One of our tipsters recently placed a pre-order for the smartphone, but after reading the long listing of features that are intended to work with the handset, there is a piece of information at the bottom of the page that’s going to be great news for some. Specifically, it says that “if you have an existing smartphone data feature (e.g. former Alltel customer, 150MB plan or a bundled voice & data plan) you can still activate the phone by calling customer service at 1-800-922-0204 upon receipt of the phone & activation, and stay on your existing calling plan.”
Granted that you still have to select either the $29.99 or $44.99 smartphone data packages when you place your pre-order online, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be placed on it. Meaning, if you’re currently paying $15/month for the 150MB data plan, then it’ll still work with the handset – but you’ll need to call customer service for it to activate correctly. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see whether or not customers sitting on even older data plans will be able to transition it to the iPhone 4.
Wierd, it says the visual voicemail is free in the pic. It's supposed to be $2.99/mo

The 150mb data plan is discontinued for new people signing for a smartphone but if you already have it, you are grandfathered in on that plan. Visual voicemail on the iPhone is free, it is apple's version. It replaces the regular voicemail we have always had at verizon. You can get our total equipment coverage insurance for $6.99 per month with a $100 deductible through asurion or AppleCare for $69.99 for only an extended warranty through apple

seems like alot of money just to say "i have a i-phone" i have a pretty good job & i couldn't imagine working for $9/hour and having a cell phone bill that high. just seems silly to me when there are other cell phone companys out there wayyyyy cheaper. at the end of the day it is still a cell phone.
