    1 iphone 4S unlimited data = $80 + $30 unlimited + $30 unlimited family txt= $140
    1 iphone 4 250mg data = $10 + $15=$25
    1 blackberry 250mg data= $10 +$15= $25
    Total= $190

    I Have 2 ipads= iPad 1 ($15for 250mg) and iPad3 ($30 for 3gb)=$45

    That's currently $190 + $45= $235/mo w/o taxes

    If I get 10GB--- 3 smartphones + 2 ipads= $180 +$20=$200. I dont think I have ever used 10gb on my iphone and ipad.

    Better for my family. I am not a heavy data user as I have wifi at home.
    Yea but wouldn't the iPads have to come with the 10$ since each device added comes with the 10/month thing.

    I have 2 iphones with data plans and 2 normal phones no data. Unlimited calls to any cellphones (which that is pretty much all we call) and the A-List for the few land lines we call regurally. Unlmited family text. 160$/month.

    makes me appreciate prepaid T-mobile @ $10 per 90 days.
    I don't get a lot of minutes, and the phone kinda sucks, but my bill is ~2% of cer0's....

    My wife and I both have iPhones. We're currently paying about $140 for 1400 minutes, 2 GB of data each, 200 messages for me and 1000 messages for her.. This also includes a discount I get due to my employer (I think it's 15% off the primary phone).

    If I'm reading this correctly, the shared data will be much cheaper. $70 for 4 GB of data and unlimited talk & text, then just $40 for the additional phone? So that would be $110 for the same amount of data and unlimited talk & text as opposed to $140 for what we have now?

    That seems too good to be true. What am I missing?

    it's definitely a good thing I never switched to AT&T. we've had Verizon since we moved to Maine and we've never had an issue. the price is also rediculous. I looked at there new shared plans, and it wouldn't save any money over the plan we have now. it sucks, we don't use 700 minutes but thats the lowest package. and after hearing all you guy's stories theres no way I'd go to at&t. bad thing about verizon. when i go to upgrade my phone again they're gonna take my unlimited data away

    I have 3 smartphones
    4s $30 data 3gb
    4 $30 data 3gb
    htc vivid $30 data 3gb
    +$30 family shared unlimited text
    +50 4 shared 550 min (we have never went over that little amount of minutes hehe)
    +9.99 2nd line
    +9.99 3rd line
    Therefore we pay $190 approx. for 9 gb of data
    we would pay $180 with this shared plan if I'm understanding this correctly....and would have an extra gb of data..
