I am considering switching from T-Mobile back to Verizon due to T-Mobile coverage, or lack of coverage, in my area. Verizon appears to have gotten better in the past 2 years based on what I see with the phones that service repair folks have when they come to the house to do work.
But, I cannot easily make sense of Verizon's plans. I really just want to see their plans & cost, then I want to choose a phone. T-Mobile's plans are so clear and easy now: $80 per month for 2 smartphones for 500mb of data...that is all we use data-wise, if we even come close to that. I might check movie start times, I might check the sports scores on Sundays, I might check email once in a while. That is all we do data-wise. Verizon chat line has been tied up the past hour or so and I was wondering if anyone here has any help they can provide. Does Verizon have a plan for $80 per month for 2 smart phones, or 1 smart phone and 1 non-smart phone (for my wife who does absolutely zero on-line anything) with unlimited talk & unlimited text? The cheapest I can find for Verizon is about $130 plus fees, insurances, etc...I think ..
From the www.verizonwireless.com site, click on Plans at the top. Verizon's cost would be $40 for each smartphone, plus your data package (which includes unlimited minutes/texts plus mobile hotspot). 1 GB of shared data would be $50. So for two smartphones, you are correct -- the cost is $130 plus taxes/fees (and insurance, if applicable).
Not confusing at all. Pick a device. In your case 2 smartphones. At $40 each that's $80. Or for 1 smartphone and 1 basic phone it would be $70( $40 for the smartphone $30 for the basic phone ).Then pick a data plan. Verizon lowest plan is 1 GB which is $50 a month. $80 + $50 is $130 or $70 +$50 =$120. So $130 for 2 smartphones or $120 for 1 smartphone and 1 basic phone.
Actually the lowest data plan Verizon offeres is 300MB of data for $40. It is not offered as 300MB is a very small bit of data, but it is still a plan.
You can't get that on a family line only a single line. The OP was clearly mentioning TWO lines
