I about lost my mind on the phone with at&t last week. Talking to someone in Bangladesh I’m sure. Everything about that company is overly complicated. They really need an easy button.

Two lines with 12gb of data for $140 through Verizon. We are making the switch to Total wireless which uses Verizon towers with 15gb of data for $70. Both plans are unlimited text and talk. My brother and his family just switched over and they love it with no issues. I’m tired of getting screwed by Verizon.

We have 4 lines unlimited with hotspot and pay $220 on AT&T.. if your a first responder, do the firstnet.. I haven’t switched yet but it’s a huge difference and it gives you priority calling.

Most of my family has changed to Consumer Cellular. They use AT&T & T-Mobile’s towers. It has cut their bill in half. We are about to change- Our bill will go from $220 a month to $110 a month.

Been with Verizon for 10+ yrs. They won't even give me 2 lines unlimited for that. We pay $170 for my wife and I and share 16G. Ridiculous and I always hear other saying exactly what you said. We were just in the store this past Tuesday arguing this.

Unlimited will run is $210 I believe and that's with a discount!

we pay 40 a phone for unlimited.

then we have a discount for paying online direct debit and I get a discount as a TDCJ/Private Facility Chaplain.

puts it a 167 per month with all fees (I just checked)

we own all of our phones

210 is nuts for 2

5 lines with unlimited talk, text & data, all of them are smart phones & 3 of them are on the next plan & my bill is 380-400. Never have figured out why it fluctuates like it does but I don't think it is too bad for 5 lines with unlimited everything.

I dont use my personal as i have a work phone, so my phones sits on a shelf, my wife and parents use the others. Sometimes just have to call and see what they will do to keep you.

Straight talk card from Walmart. Got sick of getting ripped off. My high dollar phone croaked twice in two years, yep, warranty expired both times. Wife picked up phone for $100 and got me a Straight talk card. I now use their unlimited plan and renew it once a month. $55 per month unlimited. They notify you with texts and I believe you can set up an automatic account. Same service areas as AT@T.

I had unlimited text and data and was paying $120 a month with ATT.

Switched to Cricket and am now paying $45 a month. I'm not unlimited data anymore but it is more than I'll ever use. I can't tell any difference in service.

Wow. Crazy how far we have come. Funny how so many of us will complain about an up-tick in gas prices or our electric bill, but will drop 3 bills per month on cellular data on top of paying for $500 + phones or leasing.

Our bill is high, but we have managed to stay away from unlimited by making a lot of effort in utilizing our wifi at home.
