Verizon Wireless has just begun offering a data plan aimed at attracting more consumers to its Windows Mobile smartphones.
The new plan, called Verizon Wireless E-mail and Web for Smartphone, gives customers an unlimited data allowance for email and Internet browsing.
This plan costs $29.99 a month, but must be accompanied by a qualifying voice plan. Previously, it had charged roughly $45 per month for a similar plan.
There are limitations, though. Users of this plan are blocked from access Exchange servers, although they can connect to up to 10 consumer-grade email accounts.
Those wanting Exchange access can add this telecom’s new Hosted VZEmail Services, which costs $8 a month but provides access to an Exchange Server administered by this wireless carrier.
It is available through this telecom’s business sales channels, and at its website and its retail stores, including those in Circuit City locations.
