Update: Checkout our HTC Thunderbolt first look.
When Verizon officially announced the Thunderbolt yesterday we over looked one very important feature: the option to purchase an unlimited 4G data plan for $29.99/month. As we all know, all you can eat data plans have gone the way of the dinosaurs in the last 12-months, so we’re some what surprised to see Verizon offer this. Who knows how long this deal will last or if Thunderbolt customers will get grandfathered in to the plan, much like last year’s iPhone users on AT&T. But considering that the Thunderbolt can serve as a 4G modem, we’d suggest you grab this deal before Verizon changes their mind.
With the ThunderBolt by HTC, customers will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan and a 4G LTE data package. Nationwide Talk plans begin at $39.99 monthly access and an unlimited 4G LTE data plan is $29.99 monthly access.
