Prices for Verizon and all Smart Phones Need to be More Affordable for Families

We have two adults, two teens, and one soon to be tween that will be number 5 in coming years.  Verizon is only getting more expensive and we are thinking of ditching smart phones altogether as the convenience of having a smartphone is outweighed by the horrendous cost of maintaining data plans.  We are a double waged family in professional employment and our Verizon bill is by far one of the highest bills we have to pay every month!  Another big concern is the automatic payment that allows Verizon to take payment at their convenience rather than that of the customer.  Verizon charges us automatically on inconsistent days of the month so that the funds are transferred earlier than expected.  This just caused us recently to have a overdraw fee enforced by our bank because Verizon was too quick before the end of the month to transfer the money out!  Laptop computers and iPad technology allows us other means of communication without the ridiculous payment of over 230 dollars per month!  We will first be looking at other companies for comparison but until cell phone service gets more reasonably priced we may opt out of it altogether.
