Well I called Verizon to handle a dispute. The rep was probably no was the coolest rep I've delt with in over 10 years of Verizon. I asked him about the family data plan and by his response I'm saying it's coming. He said he heard nothing but not very convincingly. And then we proceeded to upgrade me to the razr maxx (nice how they can make things happen lol) I'm hoping I made the right choice......guess I'll find out in a few days!
