    I'm thinking of switching over to Verizon, and am trying to estimate what my month phonebill will be.

    39.99 monthly
    29.99 data plan
    10.00 txt
    1.99 insurance

    So that's roughly $82. How much more will be added on with taxes?

    That usually depends on where you live and what the tax rates are and what things they can tax you for.

    It's going to be 82 + state tax % + govt surcharges, admin fees, etc. I live in Michigan and our state sales tax is 6%, I generally factor another 6% in for the other fees and it is pretty close to what you will pay. Every state is different though.

    $82 + State Sales Tax + roughly another 6%. Do the math and you will get your answer.

    Side note, off topic... You do know the $1.99 insurance just extends the manufacture warranty, ONLY covering if the phone fails due to mechanical or electrical malfunctions and manufacturer defects. The loss, theft, drop it in the toilet, and destroy it insurance is the $6.00 one. Or $7.99 for both.

    Just a note, since you're new to Verizon

    That's because the 1.99 isn't for insurance, it's for an extended manufacture's warranty.
