    I called the rep about the 1400min $139 plan, she had no problem doing it, she actually encouraged it! The thing is, we were talking about the price, I asked if I would save money, she said it would be around $160 a month. That's $10 or more on top of what I'm already paying now? I don't know if that's correct price or she just guesstimated? I'm not trying to complain, I just need to know for sure how much its going to be a month. If it's going to stay at $151-155, where I'm at now, I'll switch to the new plan, but if not is it still worth it? I'm trying to save money, not spend an extra $10-15 a month.

    So I'm guessing the only way I would benefit from this plan is if my girlfriend got a smartphone, I wouldn't have to pay for her data plan? Yet again, the rep said I'd be getting 700 extra minutes, 10 family/friends and unlimited data for both phones so why not do it? Even if my GF doesn't have a smartphone yet, down the road the rep said this plan would be useful. I would just have to pay "$10" extra on my bill.
    The fact that only one of you has data is the difference as to why I'm saving money and you wouldn't. But if you were thinking about getting your GF a smartphone this plan would be great for you, plus the added benefit of doubling your minutes and getting friends & family.
    yea it's weird. if i switch to the 139 plan now, with me having a smartphone and my girlfriend not, i wouldn't save any money. if i do get her a smartphone i would end up saving money.

    unlimited plan charged to all phones?

    For those of you lucky enough to be able to take advantage of this screaming deal. Do you have to put the data plan on all your phones, or can you still pay the data (less the discount) on say 2 or 3 phones on a 5 phone family plan??

    Thanks for any info. If that's the case, I'm going to call and see if I qualify!

    I called earlier this morning and every phone on your plan would have to pay the 20.00 for data even if they didnt have a smart phone. So add 10.00 to every line that doesnt have a smart phone already.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    re:

    im currently on a 1 year contract, 700 minute family plan (2 phones). my contract is up on 2/11. if i switch to the $139 family plan, your saying my contract wouldnt extend a extra year?
    Oh, I have no idea. I was only sharing my individual experience. I'm on an individual plan, in the middle of a two-year contract. I was on the 900 minute plan with 5 'friends & family'. With this promotion I get 450 minutes, no friends and family, and, according to the Verizon Rep, still qualify for the "New Every Two" program a year from now. Oh, did I mention that I got the Droid Pro for $129.00?? Yesssssssssss!!!!!

    I have a DX and my wife has a D2 plus 2 dumb phones for the kids.
    I pay 90/mo for 700 minutes on a family share plan. (employer discount)
    2 Data plans at 60/mo
    20/mo for the 2 dumb phones
    Thats 170/mo before ins and tax

    If I switch to this plan im looking at...
    140.00 for two phones (mine and my wifes)
    20/mo each for my additional phones. Thats 40.00
    Comes to 180.00 so essential 10/mo for and extra 700 minutes and the ability to add a smart phone to the other lines w/o worry. Which works for me because Im about to give my son my D1.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    I can't take advantage of this until Jan 1 2011......... I signed up for my acct with VZW through letstalk.com.. If I change my plan they lose their commissions.. IF they lose their commissions they charge me FULL PRICE for the phones! I hope this deal is still around.

This was confirmed as well talking to the rep when I changed my plan over to the new one.
    It's odd now at this point of the thread that people hare bringing up the length of the offered plan. I've been with Verizon got almost 10 years. Even plans that were no longer offered were always grandfathered.

    Verizon is a phone company, not a bank where they draw you in at a low interest rate and then jack the price up on you later. I believe every person who said a rep told them it was "for a year," or "temporary" did tell you that because that is the best information they have available at this time And I think some of them pull it out of their behinds to cover said area of the human anatomy. (That's called keeping it family friendly)

    It just makes sense that you have to be competitive price wise and they are in competition with Sprint on this and I believe others will follow as well.

    Everyone a few months ago was predicting the demise of free data. That was not only erroneous, quite the contrary we are getting better deals then ever. I suspect prices will come down even more in the future.
    Yea its strange bringing up the whole temporary or for a year deal, I wonder if the confusion is that reps are stating that this is temporary or for a year meaning that its Temporary that we are offering this and its only for a year meaning year extension and then interpreted wrong? Either way its a great deal if you can get on it and then its yours forever after that.

    The Verizon Rep I spoke with told me very explicitly that Verizon Wireless was testing this new rate plan with the idea to possibly offer it permanently...after a one year trial period...

    In any case, I feel pretty lucky. I've had my Droid 1 for a little under a year. I hit the one year mark on November 15th. I was genuinely confused about whether I was eligible for the promotion, told the rep I did not receive an e-mail, but saw it on a phone forum website, and she still offered it to me. I did not get friends and family, but all in all, I was able to get nearly $30 dollars shaved off my monthly bill. I was also lucky enough to get the Droid Pro for $129.00! I simply asked the Verizon rep if she could possibly sell me the phone at the two year price. She says, "Let me check" and puts me on hold. When she came back online she tells me, "Yes. The 2-year price is $279.00. We can give you an instant $50 off the phone + a $100 dollar mail in rebate, which brings the price down to $129.00. And, you don't have to pay anything right now. We'll simply add the charges onto your next monthly phone bill." Needless to say I was pumped! Oh, incidentally, she pre-ordered the phone for me the day before pre-orders officially began. Also, I don't know how it works for some of you all. However, the rep also told me this one year 'trial' does not extend my initial 2-year contract to a third year. Rather, the second year of my old plan simply converts to this new rate plan. Soooo, according to the Verizon Rep, I will still be eligible to buy another new phone a year from now, if I so choose. I didn't read all the posts here, but from what I did read, it sounds like it was simply random as to what kind of response people get/got when they called.
    im currently on a 1 year contract, 700 minute family plan (2 phones). my contract is up on 2/11. if i switch to the $139 family plan, your saying my contract wouldnt extend a extra year?
    This will extend your contract by one year as of the day you take this deal. But it will not affect your new every 2. My Wife's number was not under contract but now it is for one year as of yesterday. My phone number had more than one year left under contract so my number is unchanged for contract purposes.
