    Interesting to know. Wonder if this even applies should a completely unlimited plan for a comparable price becomes available six months from now...could I jump ship from the 450/unlimited/unlimited to that...

    I just called that number and had the option of 450 or 900 minutes at $ 69.99 and $ 89.98 respectively. The 450 did not have friends and family though. Basically saves me $ 20/mo over the traditional plan. I only paid for 500 texts though previously because I really only text people on Verizon. Ultimately it saves me $ 10/mo for nothing. No contract extension since I'm only 4 months in to a 2 year one.

    I called and made the switch. They didnt mention anything about specific accounts. I have 5 lines, so will save about $30 per month.

    Well i just called and got this new deal and they didn't mention it would only be for a year but did mention that is was only available to certain accounts that got the email directly. and that if you did not get the email then you don't qualify for these new plans. I got the email so i was good
    and will save about 40bucks a month with this now and yes price wise it competes with sprint because even though sprint has unlimited Min's their network is shoty at best so this option rocks for me

    A little dissapointed, they still charge 29.99 for each line for the smartphone data plan......so im basicly savin 1 dollar each month. Great idea but feeling a little shafted still....195.00 a month :(

    Same deal...

    I keep getting that same run-around as well... that since my number was not on the list it was sent to that I was not eligible. Called 2x, 2 different CSR's, same explanation.

    Someone wanna FWD me their email so I can forward it to the CSR to show I received the email, might be my only option!

    I was also told that it was for customer's who's contract was almost up. What length of time "almost" defines is anyone's guess.

    I just converted from an individual acount to the family share 700 plan on Saturday. My wifes Droid 2 will be arriving tomorrow, I'll call then to see if I can upgrade to this. It will save me between $30 and $40 dollars a month if I can.

    well good luck to all who are trying to get this but the rep I spoke with was fairly adamant about this only being for select accounts and that as far as she knew they would not be rolling this out to the masses. Again best of luck to all who try..



    sad that Verizon won't roll this out this would really push them to being the top choice Carrier for many many people including sprint loyals who complain of their crappy coverage

    ??? It said unlimited data was included. Did i miss something? If i have to pay $30/month data for 2 smart phones, I'm not saving anything.
