    Just came back from vzw and it looks like I'll pay right at $160 for fam share 1400/unlimited text and data, including taxes, insurance and other...not bad. He was willing to waive the $60 activation tonight.

    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.

    After going to check out at&t, I'm leaning hard towards them. I'll save around $50 monthly and get roll over minutes to boot..hard to beat that. (unlimited mobil to ANY mobil as well)

    On my first Verizon bill they charged me an up front one month charges . First month plus an additional month up front. I never was told of this method of billing and when I called they told me that is how they start a new customer. Way to go VZM...and they ask me to recommend another friend to switch to VZM??
    My future bills will be the actual plan plus taxes.
    every cell phone carrier bills the month in advance (for the service you're going to use). on your first bill you're billed starting the day after you sign up to the end of the bill cycle, plus the next month of service in advance (for the service you're going to use.

    for example:

    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.

    make sense?

    I did a search and came up w nothing. I'm almost ready to buy my 2 ip4s at vzw and want to have a accurate estimate of monthly charges. I'm gonna get the family 1400 min and the insurance for both.
    It adds up to $180 before taxes and the other charges they add..
    I have the 1400 Family Share Talk & Text Plan. Pay just short of $200/month (it's normally like $180-190ish depending on if someone travels, or if someone upgrades).

    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.

    We have 3 phones on a 1400 minute family plan: 2 have unlimited data (my husband's Droid and my iPhone), and 1 is a feature phone with parental controls and it's around $19x.xx with my discount from work.

    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!

    Yeh it's chunk of change but just like a car payment you get used to paying it each month. We already have the competition, ATT & Verizon, I believe were going to be paying these prices as long as we the consumer want the latest and greatest smartphones...

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

    competition will only drive prices down in a purely competitive market, which the US is not.

    I totally agree there! Yea, I guess if people need this kind of thing, then at the moment, they have to pay this. I was just surprised, as I figured it would be more like $60/mo. (and even that is more than I'm willing to pay).

    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.
