Verizon iPhone: what it will cost you

John Moe Feb 2, 2011

Verizon finally revealed some numbers for the impending iPhone.

Verizon said a basic voice plan including 450 minutes per month will cost $40.

A voice and text plan including unlimited text messages will start at $60 per month. And a separate data plan for getting e-mail and the Web will cost $30 per month. That’s the same price Verizon charges customers for surfing the Web on other smartphones, such as the Droid 2 by Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc.

No real shockers there. They also mentioned that existing Verizon customers will get first crack at pre-ordering the new phones and may have them in hand before the official street date of 2/10.
