Holy crap that's expensive. I pay 16,90€/month for my SGS with 3000minutes and unlimited 3G data connection(no bandwidth restrictions whatsoever).

Just upgraded my plan today when I put an order in for a Droid X... when I finally get it in 3 weeks I will be paying $85/mo. Thats with Unlimited Data, but my text messages are limited to only 500 out of network a month. Which works for me as about half my friends are on VZW anyway

+1

If it weren't for my best friend, I'd not even have a cell phone. He and his wife got a family plan kinda' deal where they got 4 phones, but only needed 3. They told me they'd let me use the 4th phone for $25 a month.

I'm beginning to think even that's too much.

Indeed. Even $85/mo. is pushing what I am willing to pay (not because I can't afford it but because I think its retarded). I don't need more than that anyway, I want the unlimied data as I can text online without the need for phone texting. I have been paying $75/mo. for almost 3 years and before that it was $65/mo. More features = more money. They are making a KILLING.

Yes, they are. And the ignorant masses remain oblivious.

I agree, I would love a smart phone but it's just ridiculous. I pay 100.00 a month now for 2 phones with txt & talk now and that's ridiculous.

I would be willing to get a job with AT&T just for the price.

$150 / month without taxes on sprint for 3 Epic 4gs, including 4g data plan.... granted that's with a 15% discount through work but overall I'd say its definitely worth it if you use your phone to its full extent
