Your Verizon Bill Is About to Go Up - but existing customers can opt out.

If you subscribe to the nation's largest wireless carrier, your monthly cell phone bill may be getting a little pricier.
Verizon announced Wednesday that it will hike prices on its plans, but also give customers about 30% more data. For instance, the price of the low-end "S" plan will increase by $5 to $35 a month, but will now include two gigabytes of data, double the amount it offered before. The cost of the next level, the "M" plan will also increase by $5, to $50 a month, while its data will surge from three gigabytes to four.
