So far, mobile phones received a new IP address whenever they connected to the internet – essentially, mobile phone networks worked in a similar fashion to a home network with DHCP turned on.

According to rcrwireless, this will now change – Verizon Wireless offers a service which guarantees that an individual handset will always get the same IP.

Unfortunately, the technology is prohibitively expensive as of this writing:

The cost to set up mobile devices with the technology is a one-time fee of $500. Along with the one-time fee, a $60 monthly data plan is also needed for each device and companies need an AAA server to implement the technology, Weldon said. Such a server could cost a company between $30,000 and $40,000.
