UNLIMITED





For the past 5 months my overage charges were actually costing me more than my phone plan, I was forced to upgrade. I now pay $99.99 a month for UNLIMITED everything. Yes, UNLIMITED everything. I can talk, text, picture message as much as I want in whatever hours I want with no overage. Does this seem excessive to you? On average, I was using about 1700 minutes a month, so you do the math. This is going to save me a ton of money.

No, I pay $90 for 1400 minutes and unlimited text. I was thinking about doing the verizon unlimited, but I usually average 1300 minutes and 1650 texts a month, so I would be spending $10 more for nothing. The $99 plan ends up being $128 or something with taxes...that seems like a lot. I hope your company pays for it...if they don't, you should ask if they will, it couldn't hurt...you may be surprised that they might pick some of that up.

That is an alarming amount of texts. Do you work?

If it is going to save you money it is not unreasonable!

It doesn't seem excessive to me. I don't often talk on the phone much, except for a really quick call to my sister and one to my parents every three or four days. But I text a whole lot so this seems like a great deal to me!

Is 1,700 minutes just talking? I had to do the math (thanks to Kristen W.'s Mike Rowe clip!) - if that's just talking, you talk 28 1/2 hours a month! $100 seems well worth it!

N, I am a really fast texter, which is not me bragging, it's just the truth...and yes, I work, but I tsxt all day. There are seriously people that are addicted to texting...not me though.

Do you text with your wife? My husband thinks I text too much and will finally tell me to shut up and just text his sister. Whatev.

She doesn't text like I do...

I think that is a sweet deal! The texting gets me everytime! I don't think if I text "ok" or "cool" or "HAHA" it should count as one text...it is just a response that I agree or got their text!

I finally had to upgrade my plan to unlimited texting to people in the Verizon Network...which is pretty much everyone I text!
