With the February 3 pre-sale launch just around the corner, Verizon Wireless has gotten official with unlimited data plans for the iPhone 4.

The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Verizon would offer unlimited data plans with Apple's smartphone, and now the WSJ is re-confirming the story. Verizon's COO Lowell McAdam confirmed a $30 unlimited data plan.

Don't jump for joy just yet. This will only be a temporary promotion, and "the carrier will follow AT&T’s move to tiered pricing in the not too distant future." No word about how long the offer will last, but consumers have had plenty of time to ponder the thought of getting an iPhone with Verizon. If you miss this, then it's your own fault.

    Surprise it's exactly what I said. Why did it take ZDNet weeks to figure out that the data plan would be the same? I'm sure the verizon execs who told you people that were just as exasperated as I am at the lack of thinking going on over here.

    It's good that the unlimited offer is 'for a limited time only' otherwise AT&T would look like the bad guy with their tiered data plans.

      @1019902735 I'm willing to be that the "limited time" will last awhile...Verizon wants to draw as many people away from AT&T as possible and they'll milk it.

        @Ron Burgundy ... My opinon is about 150 days from 2.10 - when the next generation iPhone that supports "4G" goes on sale with tiered pricing and higher data rate plan. The data plans entice Verizon's customers to buy current technology instead of waiting for the new less than 6 months away.

    I ordered the Verizon iPhone4 when online sales opened this AM. Guess when the phone ships? Feb 10th - same as when sales at stores begin. No special deals for current customers.
