We have 3lines set on a Family Plan with AT&T (1 iPhone 4 & 2 dumb phones). Total cost $114 for now but wife wants an iPhone this year, so I'll be adding an extra data package $15-25 soon. Heck I might even spring for the mobile hotspot when the iPhone 5 comes out.

if your bill cycle ends on the 15th and begins on the 16th, and you signed up today, the 6th your first bill would look like:
3/7/11-3/15/11 (partial month -- 8 days of service)
3/16/11 - 4/15/11 (regular month of service in advance).
at vzw your bill is always due 5 days before the end of your bill cycle. since your bill cycle ends on the 15th, your first bill would be due 4/10.

For that I have:
1 iPhone, unlimited data ($30)
1 Blackberry Bold ($10), 150mb data ($15), insurance ($7)
1 Palm Pre Plus ($10), 150mb data ($15)
1 Samsung Knack ($10)
I also get a 20% discount off the base plan and 20% of the iPhone data plan because of a work discount -- all which totals about $30/month. However, build your plan on vzw.com, and then add probably about $10-15 in taxes & fees, depending on your billing/usage address and the number of lines you have.

I have the nationwide talk and text. 450 minutes with unlimited text, $10.99 for insurance, $30 unlimited data plan. I bought a ringback tone which I think was $1.29 or something. This month's bill is $110. So roughly around there.

Wow... I saw this on the popular threads and clicked on it... now I'm horrified! This is like 1/2 a car payment territory for many... for a phone! This really goes to show that we need some actual competition to drive prices down. This should cost more like $30-40/mo IMO. Sheesh!

Doesn't mean we have to like paying it though..I wish it was half my car payment, I'd be happy..lol

Currently, I'm in WiFi most of the time, so I just have a dumb-phone on pay as I go for emergency... so I'm only paying $10/mo. But, I think I might try to find a good MiFi type plan when I need Internet while away from WiFi.
Sorry for jumping in... I don't even have an iPhone (just iPod Touch, and hopefully iPad soon)... but the thread caught my eye.
