Verizon announced on Thursday new prepaid data plans for smartphones and feature phones. The 3G Prepaid data package offers $30-a-month unlimited plans for smartphone users, and $10 a month for 25MB of data for feature phone users--you'll have to pay 20 cents per megabyte of overage if you go over that limit.

As for which phones qualify for the new prepaid plans, they include all of Verizon's Android smartphones, the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, and the recent crop of BlackBerrys. Eligible feature phones include the LG enV Touch, the LG enV 3, the LG Chocolate Touch, the LG VX8360, the Samsung Alias 2, the Samsung Renown, the Nokia Twist, and the Casio Exilim. You do have to fork over full price for the phone and the voice plan, but at least you'll save with the data.

The new prepaid data plans will be available September 28. Check out the Verizon release for the full list of eligible phones.
