    I guess it comes down to me not wanting to upgrade her to a phone that I feel is actually a downgrade....no 4g...small screen...and knowing a much better one is probably coming in 3 months I hate to lock into 2 years....

    Your other option would be to order the gs3 or iphone for your daughter, get her on the 2gb plan. You still have an upgrade left if you wanted to switch to the family share plan. This way it will give you some time to decide if you really want to go with the family share plan or stick with your current plan.

    The amount of data u use I would go with the family share 10gb it may be hard to lose ur unlimited but the money u will save upgrading phones will outweigh keeping unlimited data in ur case its not justified.. now if u 3 were using over 20gb every month I would say definitely keep it. or if just yourself were using over 10gb just on ur line.. And i also would wait for the iPhone 5

    Kparks I think i'm gonna go with waiting and going on the family share when iPhone 5 comes out...I know that's what she really wants but the iPhone 4 is so dated to me that I can't rush into an upgrade just to save unlimited that I really won't need anyway. I use 4 GB per month but that's because I don't pay attention and must times I use the 4g even when i'm in a wifi areas because most times its faster. If I consciously kept wifi on all the time if prob use 2GB max....and wife uses none lol...I tell at her cause she doesn't use her phone enough...she has a blackberry for work and uses that most times...lol...I should take her line away lol

    I tired to convince my sister too about Android being better than Iphone... but she turned deaf ears on me :icon_ devil:. The only point I took from that is like all the girls are having a party with their barbie dolls (iPhone), but cuz barbie doll isn't your taste you give her Bob the Builder (Android phone) instead :D. I don't think age matters either :rofl2: as she's 20+ . For a girl, Share family data with both Unlimited talk and text will be very beneficial to have. Share family plan also give you more benefit than tiered data plan as you are current Verizon customer. You have the choice of paying $90 to Verizon for 2GB to each phones, or you have the choice to pay $90 for 8GB that can be shared upto 10 devices.

    I decided to do the same. I use about 4gb as well and that's because I'm to lazy to turn on wifi when I'm home. I will be saving money going to a tiered data plan. Eventually everyone is going to be forced out of unlimited anyway.
