$80/month?!?!

I pay almost $250/month with Verizon for one smartphone, one flip phone, and a hotspot, with unlimited texting and a 10G shared data plan.

I'm feeling robbed right now.

Verizon's new data plans absolutely suck. You pay per device plus you pay for the Data package which 10gb I believe is at min 100 dollars a month. If you are currently on a Verizon unlimited plan don't expect to ever upgrade anything unless you want to pay full price for it. They just forced me to switch from the unlimited plan to one of their crappy new plans because my mom (who is on the plan) had to have a warranty replacement on her phone.

Unlimited minutes and text
10GB Data
Monthly access fee for flip phone
Monthly access fee for smart phone
Monthly access fee for hotspot

Plus I still have to pay a monthly access fee on my ex-boyfriend's smart phone even though it's not technically on the plan anymore because it was confiscated by the po-po in a giant clusterfuck that created the need for him to become my EX-boyfriend and my options were continue to pay for it or empty my savings account to pay the early termination fee.

This line will soon be replaced by a flip phone for my other daughter. I'll still be shelling out $250/month, but at least someone will be using all the devices in question.

And I could probably drop my data plan back a notch or two if I really wanted. I pay for 10GB, but I'm lucky if I use 4GB/month on average. The problem lies in those above-average months.

One of the primary reasons I've stayed with AT&T is that I have two lines with unlimited data still. Even though Verizon has better coverage in my area, as well as the areas in New Mexico's mountains where we like to go, I'm still holding on rabidly to my unlimited data plans. Why? Fucked if I know, but I'll lose them forever if I switch...

I lost my unlimited data plan with AT&T when I switched from my iPhone to my Android phone. AT&T was trying really hard to screw people out of them and said there was no unlimited option for Android phones but if I kept an iPhone I could keep my unlimited plan. I knew it was bs but I didn't feel like arguing or staying on the phone any longer. I hardly ever go over 1.5gb of data a month since I am always connected to wifi somewhere. So I saved the 10 bucks a month and just went for the 2gb plan. Then later when I heard AT&T was throttling people with unlimited data plans I was glad I switched.

I just switched to a Lumia 920 a few months ago, and brought my unlimited plan with me.

Wow...my plan seems really awesome suddenly.

I pay $50 a month for unlimited calling/text/data through T-Mobile, and it's prepaid no contract. Though there are two stipulations on my data: I only get 500 MB of Data when I'm outside of the network (so if out of service range and it switches to, say Verizon, it limits to 500mb/mo out-of-network) and then it throttles from 4g to 3g after 2gb on T-Mobile's network.

Wrong country, I know, but my plan is a lot like depricated's. Unlimited calls and texts, and 500MB data on EE's mobile networks (unlimited if connected to wifi anywhere, and my plan also includes various wifi service logins). For that I pay about 40 per month, plus I got my Galaxy S3 for free with the contract.
