The Wall Street Journal just posted that Verizon is unveiling a low-cost data plan for smartphones next week according to a person familiar with the matter. The $15 Verizon data plan would be restricted. You would get only 150 MB of download volume per month. If you exceed this limit you get charged extra.
Verizon Wireless is supposed to offer this now low-cost data plan along with the currently available unlimited data plan that costs $29.99 per months.
The new $15 plan would be available starting October 28th for new costumers. The plan requires the usual 2 year contract.
A budget data plan is great for casualsmartphone users who are not surfing hours every day. AT&T has already introduced lower priced data plans with limited data volumes.

About the Geek Mind
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.
