Verizon Offers Unlimited iPhone Data... For a Limited Time

It seems there is some hesitation at Verizon.  The mobile phone company who just announced that they will be the second US carrier to get the iPhone, announced on Tuesday morning that unlike AT&T, they would be offering iPhone users on their network the $30 unlimited plan that they offer to all of their smartphone customers.  That's incredible news, right?  AT&T contract holders currently pay $15 a month for 250 megabytes of  data per month, or $25 for 2 gigabytes of data and an additional $10 for each gigabyte of monthly data usage that exceeds the allotted 2 GB limit.
Needless to say, Verizon customers were buzzing.  Then... the news changed a few hours later.  That's when Verizon announced the the announced "unlimited" plan would be "for a limited time".  Translation: If you get an iPhone on Verizon within a narrow window of time when they are first being sold, you can have unlimited data for the life of your contract.  Miss the window and you will be given a metered plan with caps similar to AT&T.
So unlimited or limited... which is it?  Can you hear me now?
