    That's including tax and insurance. Cheapest plan is actually 39.99+29.99 (no text plan) = $70 per month.

    Yes that it what it means, you can upgrade the other 3 dumbphones to smartphones and the price would still be $200.00/ month. I thought of it as, you pay an extra $9.99 for an additional line to add to your calling and text. if you are adding an extra line for $19.99 with this plan, i darn well be getting ultd data with that. AND it saves me $30/month. even if i got my sister an Ally i would start saving money in no time lol.

    You can't have 7 people on a family plan, only 5.

    Should be about $240. Although everyone in your family plan could have smartphones instead of dumbphones for that price.

    Not only is Big Red unveiling a handful of cool devices this month, it may be taking the wraps off a new unlimited voice/data/txt plan as well. According to a recent report on BGR, Verizon has a new monthly package to compete head2head with Sprint's $69.99 Everything data plan.

    The aforementioned data plan will allot users 450 monthly minutes, unlimited messaging, unlimited data, and unlimited Verizon mobile-to-mobile minutes. A family share plan (for 2 lines) will retail for $139.99 and provide 1400 anytime minutes, unlimited messaging, unlimited data, and unlimited Verizon mobile-to-mobile minutes; additional lines can be added for $19.99. Both plans require a 1-year contract renewal and you can only take advantage of the promotion by calling the number listed in the email.

    My original plan: about $80/month (including 15% govt discount)

    450 minutes w/ free nights and weekend, free M2M
    1500 text
    Unlimited data plan

    Promotional plan: about $60/month (including 15% govt discount):icon_ banana:

    450 minutes w/ free nights and weekend, free M2M
    Unlimited texting
    Unlimited data plan

    Increase in features and decrease on your phone bill. I don't know about you guys but, I think this is a pretty good deal. Even if you don't have the 15% discount; you're still saving money in the end. The only downfall to this promotion is having to extend your contract by a year but, I was out of contract and wasn't planning on leaving Verizon any time soon. Also, it has no effect on your phone upgrade.

    Ahh, I just checked, it's 6 people. 5 in the family plan, one individual plan. Nevermind.

    Just about to start a family plan when the Dinc HD hopefully comes out. There will be 3 of us on the plan, so hopefully this would work out (able to get it without receiving the targeted email). If the 15% discount stacks, then it would be a really good deal.

    hey well just got off the phone with them and the supervisor said that it is currently not a promo. idk im still callin that number all week. has someone actually confirmed that its a true promo. also the website (actual link from email.vswshop) they tried to bring it up and they also said it comes up as a 404 error which means that its currently not in their system on verizon. maybe that email was for the higher ups in vzw.

    I don't like the 1-yr renewal. I have over a year left on my current contract. Not sure about some family members. I assume the 1-yr renewal would just be for whomever's name is on the account.

    Would be a sneaky way for me to ensure an early upgrade on an LTE phone, but I'm sure something will be tweaked on this plan for LTE service (like $10 more per line).

    Anyway, when my employer tries to cram a BB down my throat I'm going to ask for a phone allowance instead.

    This, along with unlimited M2M on any carrier is awesome. Sprint's unlimited plans + Verizon's reliable service = pure awesome.

    I think in the coming months you'll see a variety of promotional efforts by VZW to fill up 3G to capacity while a lot of people shift to LTE. They are going to milk every last dollar out of 3G. Probably also why IPhone is likely coming some time next year.

    I don't really know of anyone on Verizon for the price. Most expensive carrier yet the most customers
