So I'm sure most have heard this but if not then here ya go. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-574...lans-for-data/
I just wanted to see people's opinions on this. Seems like another ripoff to me. I'm behind on the times due to the high cost of these data plans therefore still have a "dumb phone" I've been wanting to upgrade to an Iphone or smart phone but can't justify the cost. So I was hoping this new plan would be a break. Doesn't seem to be the case. Of course I don't know how much data I'd use, wouldn't think me or my wife would use that much providing we use wi-fi when at home or other possible places but my step-daughter I'm afraid would ruin us. I like the idea of the shared data but $40 per smart phone? WTF? Of course we're under contract until Nov. But I've been watching, anticipating an upgrade when time comes. Now I'm considering switching providers as I've read many Verizon customers are saying also. So maybe another provider will come up with a more competitive plan by then? Anyway just wanted other opinions. I kinda think Verizon made a mistake and will change, that is if people really do start switching providers.
