    For 69 bucks a month you get unlimited text, web and calls to any other mobile phone number thru Sprint. My $120 vzw bill is a lot to me. Obviously not a lot to many cause you prob make a lot more money then I do.
    I just seen the commercial that's why and thought others would want to here my complaint. Haha

    My vzw bill is high $220 a month. Competition with other carries will bring down costs, though it may take a few years.

    120? just for you? I have 3 phones on my plan and the average bill is 160, with unlimited text, 1400 minutes, and data on my line... so I only pay 60

    yes, it just dropped from 99 a month, so did ATT.... it seems ATT & Verizon don't care what sprint does with pricing as their such a small player.... but when att or V adjust's their pricing the other one follows.


    so anyone paying more then 100 a month for a droid is getting the shaft at the moment... unless they don't want to renew the contract.

    With 450 minutes, unlimited data and insurance, mine is just under $82. No text plan needed as I don't text.

    I don't know why everyone has a hardon to protect verizon. Tbeir 69 unlimited is voice only.. no text no data. Sprint destroys vzw in that area. Doesn't mean I don't have a droid on vzw........................................

    Unlimited talk and text is 89.99. Not bad for a vastly superior network. I am very much willing to pay a little more for a much better network.

    You're paying 120 for unlimited calling/text/data? 69.99 for voice/txt, and 29.99 for data.

    ^^^ + Tax/tag/title (all the bs fees) + insurance = 120 ish..... Especially with my 22% Corp. discount, I don't really have an issue with Verizons pricing... Except texting!!! I'm paying $20 (2 lines, 500 texts each)... In which my girl goes over every month. So, I'll be upping it to $30 a month total to cover it. $30 for texts and its not even unlimited? Considering its a well know fact that texting costs virtually nothing to the carrier.. this is 100% profit and a big snowjob on everyone.... I can deal with $24 for an unlimited data plan, but don't gauge me on the texts.. really angers me.

    Honestly, you can't really blame Verizon for going over your texting limit though. I agree prices would be better if they came down. But they are a business, and have almost the exact same prices as the other big networks. Yet, Verizon has a far superior network. Imagine paying the same amount, but only having Sprint's or ATT's network.

    I agree with some of what you said but... Sprint has text built into their unlimited plan for WAY less total cost.. and even the evil At&t has $30 for unlimited for 2 lines (still high but at least its unlimited)... Just because other carriers overcharge for text as well doesn't make it right.
