multiple choice if you want to click how many lines, etc....
7 dollars a month
Mine's only $6.99.
at and t seems to be winning the suk factor so far....
This is for 2 Incredibles
Mine is unlimited with insurance. neener neener
1 iphone 4
15% government discount
Verizon sends me sandwiches and cold root beer with my bill.
I get 25% off my Sprint monthly service from my employer so my bill is roughly around 125-130 every month.
EDIT: Just so you know I've got a Everything Data Family plan.
verizon w/ droid 88 including taxes w/ 15% govt. discount
about to switch to ATT for the iphone 4. will probably cost the same or less.
Is having a monthly mobile phone bill over $100 common then?
That just seems outrageously expensive
its common for people who needs unlimited everything.
Yes, it is. And you can see how that, plus the two year contracts in most cases, garner the carriers so much revenue that they can afford to practically give away, or actually give away, many of their devices.. two for the price of one, etc.
mine is about $120 for two smart phones with data plans. My wife gets a pretty awesome corporate discount.
I don't know a single person who has a mobile phone bill of more that
I pay $200+ for 3 lines of unlimited everything with Verizon. I didn't vote that Verizon sucks though, I like them much more than others carriers I've had.
25$ after taxes and fees, unlimited talk, text and data with verizon
yes im gloating but if its any consolation im at work now and havent had one customer since 9am.
$99/mo for 2 Sprint HTC Heros
- 1500 minutes (only counts towards land lines)
- Unlimited Data
- Unlimited Text
That's definitely happening. There was an article on BBC radio the other week on how people are now basically replacing their landlines with mobile phones. Ironically we're only keeping landlines to get broadband data.
LOL I stream music and video all day at work. That and constant surfing, downloading, etc really adds up. I shudder to even think how much data we go through at home with 4 laptops and 2 desktops running 24/7.
I think you guys may have better access to wifi over there too, which would render unlimited data sort of useless. We are supposed to start doing tiered data plans here pretty soon, which may actually save some people some money.
That's a very interesting statement. Are you saying that it's currently more difficult in the US to taylor your data/voice needs to specific price plans?
I suppose those prices for unlimited data look pretty good, unless you don't actually need unlimited data.
It is pretty hard to tailor a plan to fit your needs exactly. Right now, the push to get everyone to some kind of unlimited plan is so high that they are doing away with all the other options. Verizon has 3 calling plans for individuals now with an option for each to add unlimited text.
450 minutes - $39.99
900 minutes - $59.99
Unlimited - $69.99
Talk & Text:
450 minutes - $59.99
900 minutes - $79.99
Unlimited - $89.99
You can add unlimited data for $29.99
That is it, more or less. Family plans are very similar. With these plans, you can see that dropping down a level only saves you $20 so there really isn't all that much incentive to change. Wireless has become an all-you-can-eat buffet sort of thing over here.
I get mine for free, so.
Do I win?
