Fortunately though, the online retailer is offering activation-fee credits to those customers picking up handsets out of Verizon’s stable with new service. Essentially waiving the customary $35 activation fee, it’ll come...

I guess this is to lure customers in so they forget about their massive bills? I've had enough of Verizon charging whatever they want. For 79.99 i have unlimited everything with T-mobile, and i have yet to drop a call or not have service. and the internet is way faster than everyone elses.

Out of curiosity, how much is your bill after tax and all that good stuff? I have unlimited web and text, and have 450 minutes for around $87 a month. With tax and what not, doesn't your bill come out to around that as well?

Gotcha. Well, I don't go over my minutes because everyone I talk to has Verizon, so I don't need unlimited talk. Verizon has better service, and a better coice of phones, so I will stick with them. ;)

I've got a Verizon Family Share Plan with 3 smartphones

1400 minutes shared
Unlimited calling to other Verizon customers
Unlimited calling to 10 Friends and Family I choose
Unlimited texting and MMS/video messaging
Unlmited 3G/4G Data to all phones

$159.98 - right about Sprint's price. Sprint does offer a bit more (free navigation, free Sprint TV, etc...), but Verizon has much better coverage here.

With my corporate discount, I get this package for $139.08 per month, before taxes and insurance or any other addons. Expensive, but no more so than the other carriers.

110.00+9.99+9.99+29.99+29.99+29.99=219.95

say you have 20% corp discount, drop it $22 which is about what tax whould be so you are right back at 200 plus mark.

lost a sale today because of how much having multiple smartphones on a family talk is
