    How is 450 minutes a great deal? Please explain this to me please. I am in business and use upwards of 2000 minutes per month. If I am not mistaken, Sprint's plan is unlimited minutes or am I misstating?

    I am with VZW because I like their service. Not because they are cost effective because they are not.

    Someone please clarify this for me. Thanks.

    Can anyone tell me how much this would be for 7 people on a family share plan?

    The plan we currently have is for 6 DUMBPHONES, and 1 SMARTPHONE.

    Also, would I be able to get maybe 2100 minutes instead of the 1400 minutes for this plan?

    I may change to this if I can. Its exactly like my plan right now except I don't get unlimited texts, which isn't a big deal, i don't text much, and I don't get friends and family. That alone would get me to play $5 more a month since my bill now is $65. My entire family is on AT&T.

    So is Sprint's $69.99 plan - however, at least with Sprint, it's unlimited to ANY wireless phone, not just in-network. So with Sprint, there are millions of numbers you can call for free that will cost you airtime on VZW.

    I wish Sprint's coverage could compete; because value-wise, they really are better.

    This becomes cost effective with at least two smartphones on the plan for a 5 line family

    Old plan:
    110+(9.99*4)+(29.99*2)= 210 (rounded up)

    New plan:
    120+(19.99*4)=200 (rounded up)

    its only $69.99 if you don't have a EVO. If you do add $10 so now it's $79

    it's so frustrating that it's closed, i tried calling 611 with no luck. same issues when i got an early upgrade to my x. this is great for family plans with smart phones. it's always been so frustrating to me that you have to pay full pop for data on each line.

    If you click the link in the first post you can see it better, fine print "Promotion excludes Family SharePlan 700"

    True, but in order to gain friends & family access on VZW (for those family members/frequent contacts not in network) you need to be on the 900 minute plan; which is also $10 more a month. And even then, you're still stuck with EVDO Rev. A speeds.

    I honestly shudder to think how bad the "penalty" for 4G will be once LTE launches on VZW.

    In the end, Sprint's deal is still a helluva lot better, even if you do have an EVO.

    It's only for the 1400 minute plan. Plus I think it said you can add Friends and Family for free.
