I'm not sure who exactly benefits from the new Share plans. My current bill, with two smartphones (both unlimited) and three dumb phones (1400 minutes, unlimited messaging, ten FnF deal, and employee discount) is $201 a month. That includes all taxes and fees and surcharges.
For the new Share plan, I would pay $80 for the two smartphones plus $90 for the three dumb phones. Thats $170 and I haven't added data yet. While I am currently on my iPhone, I do switch to my 4g android at times. 3gb is almost a given per month and I have hit nearly 10gb a few times. 4g LTE uses A LOT more data than the iPhone. Mainly because android phones load everything on a webpage, flash and all. iPhone's don't load everything. So 4g LTE iPhones probably won't be as bad as their android counter parts, but the data will increase.
So I would have to add at least 8-10gb data to my $170, putting me at nearly $100 over what I pay now. Then add on taxes, fees and surcharges. Also unsure how my discount would be applied.
I think Verizon has priced both the data and dumb phone pricing too high.
