Verizon Unveils Wireless Plan For Power Users

Verizon hopes to appeal to power cell phone users with a flat monthly plan that includes unlimited calls made to users of other carriers.For a penny shy of $100, customers can make as many domestic calls to cellular or landline phones as they want; the package also includes unlimited Internet access. Another $20 buys unlimited messaging. For $129.99, Verizon will extend its offering to smartphones and other handheld devices.

Although AT&T Wireless abandoned a similar plan of its own in 2002, this time around an SVP at IAG Research expects competitors to introduce rival plans. If packages like these take off, some analysts say customers could consider dropping their landline plans altogether.E-Commerce Times
