    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
