Apple Briefly Lets Verizon iPhone Plan Pricing Slip, Later Removed

As we reported earlier, Apple’s online store saw some downtime last night. Shortly after that downtime, the plan details for Verizon’s iPhone appeared. Both the 16 and 32GB models were available, and customers could sign up for a two year contract with Verizon. That’s where the real meat of the story comes in.


We now know what Verizon’s plan pricing will look like. Individual voice plans will start at $39.99 a month for 450 minutes. $59.99 for 900 minutes, and nationwide unlimited at $69.99 a month. Verizon’s family SharePlans start at $69.99 for 700 minutes, $89.99 for 1400 minutes, and $99.99 for 200 minutes, and finally $119.99 for unlimited minutes.


Just as the previous reports suggested, the data plan being offered is an unlimited plan for $29.99 with the ability to add 2GB of hotspot tethering for an extra $20.


Lastly, text messaging options start at 250 messages for $5, 500 messages for $10, and unlimited messaging for $20. Family Share plan messaging plans offer the same $5 and $10 plans for individual users, and a $20 plan for 5000 messages for family talk customers. You can also opt for a $30 unlimited messaging plan for all devices. If none of these suit you, you can opt out of messaging all together and pay 20¢ per text, or 25¢ per video/picture text.

Alas, Apple pulled all of this information from their site shortly after posting it.
