Verizon Wireless is phasing out nearly all of its existing phone plans and replacing them with pricing schemes that let families and other subscribers share a monthly data allowance over as many as 10 devices.
The revamped plans, available June 28, are meant to encourage customers to connect their non-phone devices, like tablets and PCs, to the Verizon network. Calls and text messages are unlimited. Subscribers pay for two things: the pool of wireless data they use every month, and the devices they add to the plan. Prices start at $90 for one smartphone with a 1 gigabyte per month minimum amount of data.
