Rest of the Day: You Can Now Buy Unlimited Data on Verizon in 30 Minutes
If you just want to start downloading crazy but don’t want to exceed your data limit, Verizon customers can now pay $ 2 for unlimited data that lasts only 30 minutes. If you want to go completely crazy , you can pay $ 3 an hour. About this and much more in today’s news.

- The Department of Transportation has banned the use of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on all flights to the United States. [Transportation.gov via Gizmodo ]
- You can now buy an iPhone 7 without a SIM card, meaning it is unlocked and ready to work with any wireless carrier. However, phones without a SIM card are not eligible for Apple’s renewal program. [Engadget via Gizmodo ]
- Kotaku just updated their selection of 12 best iPhone games , ranging from quick puzzle games to full RPG games. It’s a good list, but oddly enough, it’s missing the only game I’m playing: Steppy Pants . [Kotaku]
