Verizon cutting some pay-as-you-go data plans

Verizon Wireless is going to be cutting some pay-as-you-go data plans, making it mandatory that new PDAs or smartphones launched on or after Nov. 14 have a data plan of $29.99 or more.

The blog Boy Genius Report posted what it says is an internal Verizon Wireless memo outlining the changes. The memo says that pay as you go, 1X block and 10MB plans will not be available for new PDAs and smartphones after Nov. 14. The memo also says that a similar plan will take effect in 2009 for select phones using Mobile Web 2.0.

Verizon spokesman Jeffrey Nelson said he could not comment on the report, but said the carrier regularly changes plans to meet the competitive demands of the marketplace.
