I have att and I pay 175 a month. We have 3 lines on the account. One Iphone (mine) and then two regular non smart phones that i pay for so that my grandma and my aunt have a phone to use when they go out. Their lines each cost 10 dollars since they don’t text nor do they have internet or use internet in any way. My plan includes the following:

700 Shared Anytime Minutes with Rollover, Nationwide Long Distance & Roaming, Unlimited Mobile to Mobile calling to/from other AT&T Mobiles, Unlimited Shared Night (9pm-6am) & Weekend calling, unlimited texting

And starting next month I will be getting an 18% discount because of where I work.

@nyscpa2be:  That seems to be the best deal yet for a Smartphone service!

Obviously I really need to rework my phone plan….

We pay 190/month for unlimited text and data and 1500 anytime minutes. Just two lines though.

We are on Verizon, 4 smartphones total (my parents use are on my family plan because I get a company discount).  Two phones are grandfathered into unlimited data, two phones have a 2gig limit, I believe all 4 have 700 minutes of talking with unlimited texting.  $230 a month after a monthly discount through my company.

We have AT&T, I think a 750 min family plan which we use barely any of it, I have unlimited data and he has a limited plan, I think both have unlimited texting. After our employer discount we pay about 150 per month. Oh and we both have iPhones

Verizon, two smartphones, with 2GB of data–about $160 bucks a month. TOO DAMN MUCH!

@deetroitwhat:  lol! I had a really tough time deciding to switch from Sprint to AT&T in January! I’d been with them for 10 years but what got me was that they refused to wave my upgrade & activation fee! They wanted to charge $76 for me upgrading my phone when I was with them for so long & I just refused on principle lol I really had great phone service but the internet was slower than dial up and I was fed up so I had to switch. Plus my 23% discount would have been lost by renewing because I’m no longer at that job =/

@pinkshoes:  WOW how is that only $40?? I had sprint, same plan except I only had 450 mins unlimited mobile-to-mobile, data, and messaging & I was paying $81/month WITH a 23% discount!

@soontobemrsm11:  I am no longer at my job either.  Haven’t been for a year.  There is no way Sprint will ever know, and they rather keep giving you the discount than not have you as a customer. (:

@deetroitwhat:  that’s what I thought too but when I went to upgrade 2 different stores told me I would have to submit my 2 most recent pay stubs in order to keep my discount. The first store I went to didn’t say ANYTHING about that but I hadn’t decided on a phone. I was SO freaking glad the other guys told me, I would have been pissed! I hope they don’t do it to you when you’re ready to upgrade! I would have more than likely stayed with sprint if I could have kept my 23% discount, 23% was the highest I had ever heard of!

I’m in Canada so of course I’m getting ripped off compared to you lucky Americans. I pay $80 for 3GB, unlimited texts and I think 200 local voice minutes. 

I want unlimited data!

@HereWeGo:  In Canada, I’m with Rogers. I get a lot of data… I think 1 or 2 GB (never been close to the limit except my first month with the iPhone), voice mail, unlimited texts, caller ID, that sorta thing. My bill is around $72/month (Canadian $$). Not sure how much air time, but I don’t really call anyone ever lol.

I’m in the UK so I can’t really help, but it’s interesting to see what rates are! I pay £46 a month ($68) for unlimited everything (at least, I’ve never used more than my data allowance, whatever that is) on my iPhone 4S. I’m on O2.

I am on a family plan with my parents and sister.  We have AT&T and all get unlimited texting.  Not sure on the how many minutes.  So my portion is $15/month.  I have not crossed over to the dark side yet and haven’t gotten a smart phone.  Once I’m married, I’ll get one and be added to FH’s plan.  Not looking forward to that bill!
