    This would cost me an extra $40 with two basic phones, two smartphones, one with 200MB an one with 3GB
     
  4. In essence its a less for more plan. Typical trend of price gouging for data. Technology advances should be making this cheaper not more expensive. Hold onto your unlimited data plans as long as you can and rack up the GB on them!

    iPhones are smartphones that require data plans. 2 iPhones would be $130, minimum.

    When ever I type *3282# I get a message saying how much I've used but it has also listed our shared data. This has only popped up in those messages in the past 2 months. I've been wondering what that meant. I currently have the 3GB plan for my phone but it lists my family as having 200mb of shared data.

    Totally agree, it is very cheap to send data.
    The Phone companies are Gouging the bleep bleep out the customers...
    It costs $0.01 cent for 1 kb of data....
    It is actually $0.001 to send 1 kb of data..
    So they getting FAt on the customer..

    Plans have gotten more and more expensive. No thank you. I will juice the heck out of my unlimited plan(grandfathered in) on one phone as long as I can.
