Is Verizon changing their current data plan lingo in preparation for LTE pricing?

When we take a look at all the carrier changes that have been going on these last few weeks it only makes sense that Verizon may in fact be changing their current data pricing plans.  Verizon looks to be removing their $15/150 MB plan that is currently being offered and replacing their $9.99/25MB plan as well.  The new structure for their plans that they’ll offer include a $10/75MB plan option, or the $29.99 Unlimited Data plan option that many of us have grown to love, especially with all of the amazing devices that will coming out this year.  This may sound alright to the average user, but if you take a look at the leaked image below you will see that Verizon has changed their lingo when it comes to their smartphone plans.  They used to refer to their data packages as Feature Phone and Smartphone, but now we are seeing evidence that they are now referring to them as Feature Phones & 3G Smartphones.  This is significant because it leaves the door open for them to bring in their rumored tiered LTE  plans at higher prices, while potentially 86-ing  unlimited LTE plans altogether.  I don’t know about you, but with all the changes that Verizon is putting in place it certainly changes the way we look at our devices, and our plan choices.  Check out the leaked shot below and let us know if your buying into this one or not.
