    So currently I'm on a share 700min plan, 2 smart phones (both unlimited data, both off contract) and a dumb phone with like a year left on a 2 year deal. Pay 200 a month, thinking of switching us to 10gb share plan and doing 2 EDGE deals for iPhones. While that makes me pay more then I do now it would include new phones and no more buying my phones outright. I also get 22% off with my current job that would apply to the total plan amount, right? Not sure how that works to be honest.

    So am I crazy? Currently at max we use like 5gb and that was only 1 month and for the most part we stay at 3ish gb a month. Would start at 10gb to get better edge deals but may back that down in the future. Wifi is super common around me anymore so the only time i use data is at the odd ball restaurant without wifi and doctors offices.

    I don't know hot VZW applies discounts. I know that AT&T only discounts the data plan on these types of plans. It would cost me an additional (approx) $25 in lost discounts for my 5 line family plan.

    I'd strongly suggest that you confirm how VZW handles this before switching plans.

    Your right, discount only applies to data so I'd get 22% off 100 bucks (assuming i'd get the 10gb plan). Seems far so far.

    Verizon only discounts the data plan cost.

    I gave up unlimited data 2 years ago and, honestly, have never cracked 2 gigs with heavy use. Helps that I'm on wifi a majority of the time though.

    On s Mobile Share plan with AT&T at least, the discount % is only applied to the data cost not the per phone access cost.

    I had unlimited data and have it up when I went to the iphone. I regret it. I use about 6GB/month and have to watch my usage. I don't have wifi at home, but I am on it at work.

    If I had it to do over, I would have kept unlimited data and bought a phone outright.

    We gave it up and went to a mobile share plan so we could gain the ability to tether. Have never come close to our limit and don't regret it. We do have WiFi just about anywhere we go so that would make a difference. The tethering comes in handy when we find ourselves in the odd place that doesn't have it.

    Of course, it's a personal decision, but I plan to keep my unlimited. I had a power outage a few months ago and it was nice to kill some time streaming netflix for a couple hours.

    I also commute to work and the bus doesn't have wifi.

    I know these are all "1st World problems", but that's my opinion.

    It also helps that switching to a tiered plan would not save me a significant amount of money.

    I have almost the exact same plan as OP, 10gb with 3 lines on edge and I pay roughly 240 with insurance on all them. It's also split between 3 ppl so I get a awesome deal
