    Currently, I'm the only one using smartphone with unlimited 3G data plan and 3 other family members have feature phones. It costs around $170 every month. If I were to change to feature phone (totaling 4 feature phones), how does the pricing work? Do we still have to pay $50 for the unlimited voice and unlimited msg + 1GB data? or is there alternative? because AT&T's plan sounds so much more attractive right now...

    I've no need for unlimited minutes. We don't even come close too using our 700.

    Based on our data usage it is about a wash.

    Hope mine is still Grandfathered.

    I have 3 smartphones with unlimited Data...and unlimited Texts.. it is 147 a month total.. I do not want to Switch. I have a Current 2 yrs signed agreement.. and if they break that , I am not obligated to them. I could just drop them, and walk away.

    You sure about that, does that include taxes and fees.

    I guess it'll be time to ditch Verizon if I'm forced into something like this next time I want to upgrade.

    So currently this is what you have? $100 Minutes plan + $30 req data plan + $30 per line (3 additional phones). If you still have Unlimited data and available upgrade, then you may utilize that to get new phone at subsidized price. This way you can enjoy unlimited data with faster phone for the foreseeable future.

    Verizon now have new Structure plan so the old plan gone to the trash bin quick.

    If you are willing to drop your Unlimited data and get their Subsidized phones x4 this is likely what will happen to you.

    1. 4x $30 Upgrade Fees. (one time)
    2. 1x $40 smartphone fee.
    3. 3x $30 Basicphone fee.
    4. $50 1GB plan for your phone only.

    So this will amount you (one time w/o the price of the phone) $300/ month. Monthly payment for your next 2 years contract should be around $180+tax. I wonder if your $170 is already with tax as the new plan should cost you $20 more/month.

    lol nope, wrong math... and too many beers. $260 + $20 give or take for fees and taxes, divide that by 3 $93 yup same.. and thats not even including my 22% discount i get... so idk how they will add that in. but i should roughly pay the same.

    I see but if I(only smartphone user in the family) were to drop the smartphone and use feature phone, how would that affect the monthly plan?

    I guess I'm one of the few that will save money on this plan. My wife and I barely use any data because we're always on wifi. 3g is weak where I live and 4g is nonexistent. We never come close to 500 mb let alone 1gb. But I also understand it's really lousy for the majority of people in here. Maybe the uproar will cause VZ to back track. Thankfully I just signed a new contract with my Rezound. My wife isn't due for an upgrade until December so we'll see what happens then. Right now she's happy with my old dinc2.

    I have the same situation, I just got married on June 2nd and we went into Verizon to check the plans before we got married. It was told to us that we both would retain our unlimited data when I upgrade my voice plan. She would be migrating to my plan and I would be upgrading my individual voice plan to a family voice plan. I don't know how his would go since he is on his family plan and she on hers. Remember, even though you are under contract, you can change the plans without voiding the contract and if you wanted you could switch to a tiered, though I wouldn't know why you would.
