Apple has unveiled their newest toy – iPhone 5. It is already the new buzz word on the market, as usual. Carriers are now coming with data plan offers that will suit the thirst of the LTE radios to be found for the first time on an iPhone device.
AT&T has announced their offers right after the iPhone 5 launch, that they will allow customers to keep their existing data plans. Now, two more carriers have also declared their plans for the brand new iPhone 5.
When Verizon has come up with the new plans, it seems the carrier is less accommodating to the new device. While AT&T’s plans for iPhone 5 allows users who have grandfathered into unlimited data plans to keep them as such, Verizon needs you to pay the full price of iPhone 5 to keep the grandfathered unlimited plans.
Moreover, for existing customers, Verizon allows to keep their Nationwide Usage Based plan when they pick the iPhone 5 with a new two year contract.
However, Verizon s trying to push their tired data plans with the launch of the iPhone making it really difficult to have the new iPhone in hands for fearless browsing. New customers will have to pick a shred or tiered data plan.
Sprint is making the difference by offering unlimited data to new and old customers, offering the phone at subsidized rate at the same time.
That is the best way to drag more customers from both AT&T and Verizon as the new iPhone starts to make impact on the market. Sprint will start taking pre-orders at 12.01 am PST on September 14th. There is no word from other carriers.
