Verizon To Force You Off Unlimited Plans for Subsidized Phones

Verizon Shared Everything

We told you yesterday about Verizon’s new Shared Everything plans. Since then more details have come out and as usual with carriers the details are in the fine print. First of all Verizon is “graciously” allowing customers with unlimited data plans to keep them. The catch is that if they want to buy a new phone with a subsidy they will lose their unlimited data plan. The only option for keeping your unlimited data plan is to buy devices outright with no subsidy (think $650 to $750) but even that is temporary.

The other huge catch for companies is that Verizon still plans on charging a $15 extra per device tax for corporate email access. That means BlackBerry Enterprise Server along with Good Messaging and any other secure email solution though it is no longer required for ActiveSync.

Frank pointed out to me that Verizon has even been kind enough to put out a very descriptive PDF of how exactly these plans break out in addition to their calculator. In short expect to be paying $10-$50 for a gigabyte of data on Verizon if you want to get a subsidized BlackBerry 10 device in the future…
