Verizon has announced several smartphones that can be used on its LTE network in 304 U.S. cities. The LTE phones have average data rates of up to 12 Mbps on downlinks and up to 5 Mbps on uplinks, Verizon said.

New customers are subject to Verizon's Share Everything service plans that took effect June 28. The plans provide unlimited voice and texting across all of a customer's mobile devices and shared data plans for up to 10 devices.

Existing customers are not required to update to Share Everything, unless they have an unlimited data plan. Many customers complained when Verizon introduced the concept in mid-June.
