    Verizon Wireless to overhaul its phone and data pricing plans (More Info)

    One of our connects hit us up with some changes Verizon Wireless is making to its calling plans effective January 18th. The details are coming in slowly but it looks like Big Red (not the gum) is ditching the all-inclusive Premium plan and renaming the current Basic plan to Nationwide Talk, and the Select Plan to Nationwide Talk & Text. A 30% drop in pricing on the unlimited minutes options for each of these plans is expected to accompany the name changes. Verizon also reconfirms the changes to the feature phone data plans which includes a new $9.99 data plan with 25MB and mobile email and a $29.99 unlimited plan with mobile email. Additionally, overage charges for the new $9.99 plan have been decreased from 50˘ to 20˘ per MB. All 3G multimedia phones, a category which has been expanded to include the enV3, Chocolate Touch and others, will now require a data plan of $9.99 or higher, like we reported. Verizon also added onto their prepaid plans, offering an new unlimited plan Talk & Text plan for $94.99 per month. Hit the jump for some highlights of the changes.
    UPDATE: We’ve got shots of the new family plans as well as comparisons to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile! It looks like Verizon’s new unlimited voice plans will run $69.99/month individually, with an $89.99/month option that will include unlimited text messages as well. As far as family plans go, Verizon seems to be coming in at $119.99/month for the first two lines, and $49.99/line a month after that with unlimited text and data options as well.
