For those of you planning on getting an iPhone 4 on Verizon we can now tell you how much you will be paying. Pre-orders will be beginning tomorrow with the basic voice plan costing $40 a month with 450 minutes of talk time.
According to the Associated Press if you want a voice plan with unlimited text messages, it will set you back $60 per month. If you need a data plan for getting your emails and surfing the web it will cost $30 per month. This is exactly what Verizon charges on other smartphones it offers for data.
It has also been revealed by Verizon that iPhone owners will be able to use the device as a Wi-Fi hotspot, this will cost an extra $20 per month and AT&T customers are not offered this feature. AT&T also offer a voice plan for $40 with 450 minutes of talk time, but their $60 call plan does not feature unlimited text messages.
The $30 data plan on Verizon offers unlimited data, while AT&T’s $25 data plan has a limit of 2GB per month. AT&T does offer a cheaper data plan that only costs $15 per month, but this has a monthly limit of 200MB.
Verizon have set aside a number of iPhone 4’s for existing customers, and people who are not already customers can not preorder one. Preordered iPhones could reach customers on or before February 10, and like AT&T will cost $200 or $300 depending on what size of memory is purchased. A new two year contract will also be required.
