According to Reuters, Verizon is planning to end their unlimited plans this Summer. They will be replaced by tiered plans for users. What will they do after this? According to the report, they hope to introduce family plans for handsets. This is more in line with what carriers like AT&T and Sprint do. One person is the primary account holder and others are on the family plan with them. The good news is that it all adds up to a bit less per person, which is nice if your whole family is on the same carrier.
It's also reported that Verizon CFO Fran Shammo again mentioned that the next iPhone will be a world phone, something he said recently as well. He also mentioned was that when the iPhone 5 arrives on AT&T, it will be available for Verizon at the same time. Of course there was no direct mention of the iPhone, it was more a semi-vague but not too vague for the blogs comment about a future iPhone hitting both carriers at the same time. Reuters put it exactly like this:
"When the next iPhone model launches Verizon will be able to offer it at the same time as AT&T. Verizon's version will also work in as many countries as AT&T's iPhone, which has global coverage, Shammo said."
Well, looks like that ends any concern about whether or not the iPhone 5 would hit both carriers at once. Right? See folks, there was no need to worry. From here on out, subscribers on both carriers can use the iPhone.
