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!
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!!!!!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?
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 think I have these numbers correct:
$40-4 additional lines ($10x4)
$120-4 data plans ($30x4)
$140/1400 minutes/2 phones
$60-3 phones data/voice
Savings: $95/month woohoo

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.
Does anyone know the "cut off" date for trial period.. it's looking like a yr from now.. but what day did they officially start offering this??
