Mine is not cheap- 4 iPhones with data plans and unlimited text, 2100 minutes month $250.00. We do not have a home phone. I know it can be much cheaper when you don't have smart phones, but this works for our needs.

I despise the phone, so I picked up a pay-as-you-go plan from Virgin Mobile. I just have to pay a minimum of $20 per every 90 days.

I would like to know, too. We have 4 iPhones, unlimited data and unlimited text with only 750 min. for $280. 750 is plenty because all calls to any cell phone is free. I would still like to know who your plan is with. thanks

That is what my husband has (but he got the $15 for 3 months). I have Straight Talk for $30 a month, 1000 min, texts and some internet time. But now that we have a land line I am going to dump it and get another Virgin contract. 2 phones for average $11 a month. Sold.

Our family has Virgin Mobile. We have the $25 a month plan, I do believe its now $35. Our monthly fee is taken from our checking once a month. Before you go with a plan that includes phone I really encourage you to sit down and do the math. You pay a LOT for some of those deals.

Three I-phones with unlimited data, two of which are grandfathered in, for unlimited data, unlimited text, unlimited minutes for $180 dollars a month. We get a 30 dollar monthly discount with my husbands company. I hate paying this bill!!!

My mom and I share 1,500 minutes and have unlimited text & data for our 2 iPhones. Base cost is $149.99 from Sprint but the taxes & fees always make it closer to $200. :/

We are in Canada and I was always under the impression that our cell phone plans were brutal, but this looks about in line with what we pay so far.
We're with Virgin Mobile and we have 3 smartphones (one iPhone, 2 blackberry) with 1g data,unlimited text, 10 free numbers, 300 minutes each, and free calls after 5pm for $55 for each phone. So it works out to about 180 with taxes per month. I still find that way too high and I am ditching it for a talk and text plan on my phone since I rarely use the internet on my blackberry.

I have auto billing so I dont really look at it. I believe it totals about $160

It includes my own phone, my DH and my dad..he is on my plan because for some reason, if he was on my mom's it would be 20 a month instead of 10. I have the iPhone and the data plan, the other two phones are just phones.


Oh yea, it is Verizon

I'm in Canada too. We have 2 iPhones with unlimited texts and calls. We each have 5G of data a month and our bill is $130 all in. Not bad

For both me and my husband its around $145.00 for unlimited talk, text and tv. We are with Sprint, the plan is pretty old. Our plan did increase $10 each when we got smart phones.
