Verizon 250MB Share Everything Plan makes Smartphones cheaper

Verizon Wireless has added a new Share Everything data plan to its line that lets people that don’t need a lot of data each month get into a new device on the cheap. The new plan has a scant 250MB of data each month reports Engadget. That data will be gone in short order with a couple streamed videos.

The good news is that if you spend most of your time on WiFi and can get by with 250MB of data, you can save $20 per month on your bill. The new plan is available right now.

With the new plan in place, a smartphone user can get service for $10 a month more than a basic phone user can. A basic phone plan costs $50 per month and with the new 250MB data plan, a smartphone costs $60 per month. The overage charges for this plan will make your head spin if you go over. Considering how easy it is to use data at home or in the office accidently if you lose your WiFi connection, I can see this plan costing people a lot of money if they aren’t careful.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
