    $30 Dollar/Month Unlimited 4G LTE Data Plan Available with Thunderbolt - For Now


    Today, you can officially purchase the HTC Thunderbolt, and late yesterday, Verizon issued their press release making sure we knew. Contrary to Verizon's previously stated stance that they will eventually do away with unlimited data plans, they are offering exactly that with the new HTC Thunderbolt. For $29.99 per month you can get an unlimited 4G LTE data plan when you purchase the TBolt on contract. This is especially enticing since the TBolt can be used as its own mobile WiFi hotspot. Their own USB 4G home internet modems seem obsolete in comparison, since their plans are about $80 bucks a month for only a 10GB data plan. The TBolt suddenly becomes your more affordable home internet for some users.

    It's doubtful that you will be able to "grandfather" this unlimited 4G plan in the future since Verizon still plans on getting rid of that, but we don't know for sure. Below is a link to the full press release.

    I thought that free wifi hotspot was only until sometime in May and then it will incur the listed hotspot monthly charge of something like $20 for 1GB.

    I predict that the carrier that keeps unlimited data plans will eventually become the biggest wireless carrier in the nation. Whether it is Sprint or T-Mobile or whomever. At a minimum it will head that direction and AT&T and Verizon will bring them back in order to preempt it.

    Talking

    Don't know if it's been addressed anywhere else in the forum, but I talked to a customer service rep on the phone to ask about the status of the talk/text/+data promotion status with upgrading to the thunderbolt (called number from flyer). I was informed there should be no change to the promotion and had one ordered. So far there has been no change to my promotion on the verizon website, but he gave me his number in case anything should change. Looks promising, if those of us with the promotion can get grandfathered into unlimited 4G data with the promo...

    Ugh... I have unlimited 3G, but am not due for an early upgrade until September. Hearing this, and knowing that Verizon is likely going to phase out unlimited plans this summer makes me seriously consider trying to upgrade early and re-up right now. Especially since 4G might be the norm for at least another 2 years, and if I can lock myself into an unlimited 4G plan right now...

    Ugh... Maybe this will stay around for another 6 months... *sigh*

    Well I'm locked into unlimited 4G now. Muhahaha. My D1 served me faithfully but this TB is pretty damned impressive.

    Wait until just before the switch to the tiered option. Given the amount of public attention this is getting, there is no way they'll just make the switch overnight without anyone knowing. My plan is to buy the best phone available at that time.

    Oddly, not that we always believe them, but...The manager at my Verizon Wireless corp store, where I just bought the TB, said we would NOT have to start to pay for hotspot if activated before May 15th.
