so its a family plan labled as small buissness plan?
The Godfather (unregistered)
family plan with a mandatory 8% off due to it being classified as a SMB deal, thats the change. Unfortunately phone arena didnt see apple or i phone in this so they didnt really care to report it correctly. Before , you needed to have a share plan to get that 8% off.

The only thing about this Godfather is that the 8% discount will only apply to the "primary" line on the account. I know, it's still a discount, and 8% is better than nothing, but I wonder if the employees of that company will receive a discount on their "personal" plans ( if they choose to get one ) because the small business they work for has VZW service. I know this applies to the current Business Share plans.
if each person got their own plan they WOULD get a discount but only at the 8%. Therefore, by sharing the minutes, they can save money on the bill.... just like how a family......shares........minutes.......crazy concept.... i know.... Family Share Plans....

Haha, yeah, this is VZW thinking people are going to buy into a new service that is no different than the previous, it simply has a new name... Just like "Mobile Broadband," and other silly nomenclatures. But Brikz, that's how all discounts work at VZW, only on plans with monthly access of $34.99 or higher. And no, personal lines wouldn't constitute an additional discount, that would be a separate discount agreement for Employee Liable accounts, as opposed to Corporate Liable accounts.
