I think if they do change the data plans for the iPhone they would grandfather in the current VZW customers that have Unlimited Smartphone Data for $30/month. AT&T grandfathered in their customers that already had unlimited data when they announced their new iPhone Data Plan prices.
If Verizon does not grandfather in its current customers that already have Unlimited Smartphone Data for $30/month... they will have a lot of pissed off people to deal with.

Regardless of what they do for price, I believe they will grandfather in anyone on an unlimited plan and possibly have the 2 or 5 GB cap ... And it's being said "androids use more data" according to reports there are 9 million android users ... There were 13 million iPhone 4's sold on AT&T since last July on one network !
Big Red Wilk have numbers similar to this, think of that strain on the network all at once or as fast as they can sell the phones .... Verizon isn't saying what the data plans are for a reason
But we all will see here in a few weeks

Bottom line, I believe that they will leave the $30/unlimited plan up at least for a little while. Like has been mentioned, they are looking for any way to screw AT&T. Also the fact of the matter is that they never once changed the data plan when android came onto the scene and Android/Google os is one power hungry sucker. I have been with Big Red for over 10 years now and had an unlimited data plan with them for 5 with an android device for almost 2 of those 5 years. If AT&T allowed some of their users to be grandfathered into unlimited data with AT&T being the most strained network in the US, then you can bet your bottom buck that Verizon will at least match them with that. So don't sweat it, if your with Verizon you will probably be grandfathered into your current plan. Otherwise jump ship while the deals are sweet because you never know what Verizon has in store with all of the recent changes. For now though, $30/unlimited for sure.
