hmmm...I think your math may be off.... I have Droid, Wife has BB tour, we are on family plan AND I get 20% off for working at local hospital and our bill is 170$ a month.
again, adding a line is only $10 a month, i wouldnt have any other plans on that line, just putting it on there to get the phone...
The $30/mo is a mandatory data plan for the smartphone. Being on the family plan you can add another line for $10/mo. That adds up to $40 a month because you can't cancel the $30/mo (just data) you are currently paying for your droid.
As Hookbill said, you can renew early. If you got your phone last November they are cutting you a deal. 40/mo for 6 months is 240 bucks right there. Long term the deal is cheaper if you really want the Droid X.
I get to play the waiting game. I won't be first in line. I probably will wait for the droid pro or droid 2 or whatever comes next. Then I might still wait for the one after that. My current phone works great. I'm in no rush....yet
if you sign up for it then transfer the smartphone to the other line you use mainly and put some basic phone on the new line you will only will be charged 10/month
this is what i do. my dad has a plan for his employees over at his place of work but they never need to upgrade the phones over there. so when i see a new phone i want i just use one of those upgrades. I accept the smartplan and activate it momentarily then switch it back to the other phone and cancel the smartplan (to free up the ESN)
