    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.

    Maybe it doesnt exactly. Who cares. It can save quite a few people 20 bucks a month. Just relax.

    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.

    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.
