Verizon 3G phones now available with pre-paid plans Verizon has announced new monthly pre-paid data packages for users that have 3G smartphones and "multimedia" phones.
For $30 per month, Verizon is offering unlimited data. If you opt for the cheaper $10 multimedia phone plan, you will only get 25MB, with each extra MB costing 20 cents.

The unlimited plan is available to users with the BlackBerry Curve 8330 and 8530; BlackBerry Storm 2; BlackBerry Tour; BlackBerry Bold 9650; Palm Pre Plus; Palm Pixi Plus; Motorola Droid; Droid X; Droid 2; Droid Eris; Droid Incredible; and LG Ally.

Verizon "multimedia" phones include the LG enV Touch; LG enV3; LG Chocolate Touch; LG VX8360; Samsung Alias 2; Samsung Renown; Nokia Twist; and the Casio EXILIM.

Both bundles are available in-store as of today and online on the 28th.

"Our prepaid customers will now have the freedom to enjoy all of the capabilities that these phones have to offer, while controlling costs and without being tied to a contract," added Jim Sullivan, director of marketing for Verizon Wireless.

Still not cheaper than some of the other PrePaid Cell phone companies out there. As long as the phone can text and make calls for me I'm great with the phone. I like my $45 unlimited talking, unlimited texting and unlimited data plan

I have the Motorola Droid and my wife has the Eris. She used to only get the Blackberry. But they wont let you get the $10 data plan one these phones,I tried. They say there always connected so you have to get unlimited.
