    I'm on my parents family share plan and we're 1yr into our 2yr contract. Anyone know if we can get this deal? I'm not sure if it'll save us money, but it doesn't hurt to find out right?

    What's so great about this? I already have free verizon to verizon calling, free nights/weekends, and only spend 30 a month on data and 10 a month on texting...

    The Verizon mobile to mobile is just in net work right? If so then its kind of misleading in the fact that they state it, because everyone already knows that you have free/unlimited Verizon to Verizon. On sprint however you have unlimited mobile to mobile, it doesn't matter what network the person you're calling is on as long as its a mobile phone and in the USA.

    Also the$ 10 a month extra for the 4G phones on sprint isn't really that bad. When 4g gets a larger deployment then you have unlimited 4g as well and its only for $10 more.

    Hate to double post but I can't edit in news threads. Only staff can.
    Anyway what happened to the $99/month unlimited everything plan that I heard Verizon was offering out in california? I heard about that about two months ago. That would be an even better deal for most people.

    Right now here is what I pay for on my family plan. I have the plan before they switched stuff last year:

    $119.99 1400 minutes and unlimited data on primary, non-smartphone and unlimited text for all lines
    $20.00 $10 each for two additional lines to share phone and text
    $30.00 Unlimited data on Droid X

    $169.99 total


    New Plan:

    $139.99 1400 minutes and unlimited data and text on two phones.
    $19.99 Add third line and it gets to share everything

    $159.98 total and we all get unlimited data. Hmmmm....time to get the wifey an Android Phone.

    And your bill is how much a month???? The cheapest plan u can get from verizon. For a smatphone (minus an employer discount) is around 90 bucks a month.

    This would be a break-even deal for my family. I pay 39.99 for 450 plus $30 for data...Two family members with dumb phones pay 39.99. This plan for 3 lines is actually $160, so it would cost me $10 more. Gain 150 minutes between the 3 of us but then I suppose my family members could get smartphones and we'd all have unlimited data.

    Smells like a future bait-and-switch to me. Get more people upgrading to smartphones and data plans and then BAM! tiered pricing with LTE.

    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.
