Verizon doubles the megabyte allowance for newly signed 4G smartphone data plans

Verizon doubles the megabyte allowance for newly signed 4G smartphone data plans
The month of November marks 2 years since the original Motorola DROID started Androidmania, and what better way for Verizon to honor the event than treating its customers to an irresistible offer like this one? Starting tomorrow, November 8, anyone who commits to a 4G smartphone data plan with Verizon will receive twice the megabytes that the plan includes. For example, opting in for the $30 2GB per month plan will get you 4GB of data instead.

The promotion applies to any Verizon 4G smartphone, and both new and existing subscribers are eligible for it. Existing Verizon customers should bear in mind that in order to request a data plan change they must either sign up via their My Verizon account or contact customer service for assistance.

With sizzling-hot devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola DROID RAZR, and the HTC Rezound nearing their release, it is pretty certain that a great deal of Verizon subscribers will take advantage of the double data deal. However, Verizon is making it clear that the data promotion will be available for a limited time, so it would probably be a good idea not to hesitate for too long if you find the offer tempting.

UPDATE: Further information regarding the double data deal from Verizon hit our inbox. Here is what the carrier clarifies:

  • All new customers who purchase a 4G smartphone are eligible for the double data plans
  • Existing customers who have upgraded their service or purchased a 4G smartphone within the last 14 days will be eligible for the double data plans
  • Once a customer has the plan, they keep the plan as long as they are on a 4G smartphone. The limited time promotion applies to how long Verizon will be selling the plan, not how long customers get to use the plans
  • The plans are already available for purchase
