Verizon is once again tweaking their 3G data plans, and this time it looks like it is in preparation for upcoming as-of-yet unannounced 4G LTE data plans. The $15/150MB per month for smartphones is no longer on the menu, leaving the unlimited data for $29.99 a month as the only option. Meanwhile, for $10 per month feature phone users can get 75MB of data, with a $10 overage charge scoring 75MB more if you happen to go over.

But notice that when referring to the $30 unlimited plan it is expressly stated that the terms apply to”Feature Phones and 3G Smartphones.” It looks like Verizon is starting to make the distinction early before official 4G plans are announced. What those plans will entail remains unknown at this time, but chances are VZW will be charging a premium for their shiny new LTE network.
