    Well damn, guess I'll just keep humping along with my trusty Blackberry on T Mobile. I need the UMA out in the boonies. Congratulations to the Verizon crowd.

    I'm interested in knowing if Verizon will offer unlimited data plans for the iPhone. If so, that will give people more incentive to use an iPhone with big red.

    According to the announcement, yes. They will also have the HotSpot feature. Pricing on both still hasn't been announced, as far as I know.

    Who would want to share a 3G connection with anyone? Certainly not with 5 other people or devices.
