    Default AT&T 10 GB family plan. Who jumped to it?

    I was just curious how many people have jumped to this plan... I see a lot of people saying they are considering it but just wondering how many are. .

    So have you jumped? Or still on the fence?

    Don't tell me that you are considering abandoning ship?

    Anyway,there is a big thread on SD discussing this plan. I think for families that use a moderate amount of data (2gb ish per line average), it makes sense. I was going to tell my co-worker who is on family mobile with his entire family, but he is hung up on the word "unlimited" even though it clearly states that unlimited is 2.5gb and only 3g data.

    Haha no I couldn't dpham you know me! :P.

    I have been considering it for my brother and his wife... They would be able to take advantage of it and save money versus paying for 2 single lines on Sprint (they never joined a family plan together).

    They average about 1.5 GB each.. So I figure sharing 10 would be great especially on AT&T's network versus Sprints.

    I think that I would suggest to him the tmobile simple plan, since he seems steadfast on tmobile.

    He doesn't care that my Verizon phone gets service where tmobile doesn't so network coverage doesn't seem to be that important to him.

    But back to the topic at hand, att plan is only $10 more than tmobile for 4 lines , so well worth it if you need the additional coverage

    I went from paying $90 plus $105 for 6gb and 3 smartphones to $100 plus $45 for 10gb. Was a no brainer for me.

    Did your previous plan include subsidized phones?

    Imagine how much money you would save if your brother and his wife went to the ATT mobile share plan and you just hopped on as an additional line!!!!

    For a 4 line plus 3 tablet plan I saved over 100 a month so I switched.

    Yes, and they still allowed me to switch over. I can use NEXT now if i want to, the original contract end date is still this coming October but no more subsidized phones for us.

    You can go back to subsidized phones after the contract end date but it increase the line costs by 25 dollars.

    correct, so not worth it when most NEXT 18 phones are less than that with the option to swap phones in 18mo. Which works for me since i never use the old phone i bought on contract anyways lol

    The girlfriend and I did last month! Much much cheaper for us. Not to mention the free hotspot and the feel of unlimited data for us both! Great deal. (With discounts and what not we pay $110 a month!)

    So it is a $50 difference between subsidized and unsubsidized for your 3 lines. Which is pretty fair. Good deal for you especially if you don't upgrade to the latest high end phone every 2 years. It also gives you more freedom.

    I have 2 smartphones and an iPad and I switched to the new 10 mb shared data plan to save some substantial money each month.

    Anyone have a single line with the 10 gigs of data? I average around 5 to 6 gigs a month. With my corporate discount it wouldn't be that much more to go up to 10 gigs. I know, I am a data *****....

    My wife and I switched this past Saturday.

    She's been on AT&T forever, with an old plan she was paying too much for, even with a work discount. I'd switched to Sprint for unlimited when the EVO 3D came out, and had been with them since then.

    I bought a Nexus 5, she uses an old iPhone, and now we're on a discounted $130 plan. We won't even come close to using 10 GB, but it's good to have. Good service in both my home and work areas.

    I switch last month you gotta be careful because if you switch and have a start on the beginning of your new bill cycle. You pay full price basically then you get a discount on your next bill so I'm going to get $100 off on my next bill then only be paying a hundred twenty one dollars. From now on when I was paying 154 dollars its great I'll just use next program but I don't really need upgrade I have the HTC One and it's a good phone and she left me for another year too.

    Yes, I switched earlier this week, BYOD setup - new Nexus 5 and a used iPhone 4S bought on eBay. My wife and I were Verizon customers for 10+ years, but their plans are just not competitive in price, and very stingy on data. The much-touted Verizon network advantage is overrated, or maybe just plain wrong. AT&T has much better signal at my home than Verizon. Verizon's signal was not available inside the home at all; AT&T works fine. Before signing up we did a test by installing an AT&T SIM in a new iPad and buying a tablet data plan for a month for a trip from Virginia to Atlanta. Worked great, had signal for Google Maps all the way down I-85 and in the Atlanta area.

    Good-bye, Verizon. And good-bye to subsidized devices and contracts.

    Okay, so for those of you who switched and have a discount, how does your discount apply?

    Right now, I have a 21% discount, but it is only on voice and data I believe, so I was wondering, if I switched to this new 10 Gig plan, would I really save more money or less one I factor in the discount? I do enjoy the fact that I get to use up to 10 gigs though.

    If it is a fan discount, it only applies to the base price of 100 dollars, not for each line, based on my understanding.
