Well, with Verizon Wireless’s announcement of their “E-mail and Web for Smartphone” plan, Verizon is starting to get with the program. At $30, the new web-browsing plan allows for affordable unlimited email and web-surfing on your smartphone.

Verizon has made the new unlimited plan available on their SMT5800, XV6800 and the MOTO Q9m smartphones. Just don’t go trying to test the “unlimited-ness” of this unlimited web-browsing plan. Verizon is a stickler for high-usage data plans.
