    Default Android Family Plans

    The idea of buying an Android phone on a family plan has been floating around the web since the G1 rumors started. I am currently on a VZW family plan with 1400 mins and unlimited messaging on 4 lines, but I am willing to switch carriers if it means that we can have Android handsets. I am looking for a family plan that fits my needs from any carrier that will allow all four lines to get Android handsets for under $200 (without the cost of the handsets). Can anyone help me?

    Thank you in advance.

    Wow. That's an awesome plan. Verizon need to step their game up when it comes to their plans.

    I am on this plan and I use about ten minutes a month. I always get excellent coverage in my area. My any mobile minutes is through the roof.

    I just switched to the Sprint plan myself. I don't have a lot of experience with it, as I am under a week with the current plan. But so far, while coverage isn't quite as good for me as it was with Verizon, it is still good enough for me not to regret switching. For the most part the Sprint plan has been just as good for phone usage as Verizon, with a lot of added benefits through the plan, without all the added cost. There is only the fact that for some odd reason, in my bedroom of all places I lose service through my Sprint phone sometimes. I don't know why there specifically, and why I didn't have that with Verizon. Its a weird issue, but I still don't regret due to all the other features I can now use on my phone. Plus I really text, and do other things a lot more than phone calls. So I would say Sprint is your best option to fit your needs.

    I had to drop Sprint... they kept hitting me with $150 data fees... even though I was on their "unlimited" data plan... it was cheaper to pay the disconnect fee then to pay the monthly bill.

    This plan pretty much says it all. . Sprint still embarasses Verizon/ATT(even post $69 unl talk) dollar for dollar, and when the Sprint haters at work say it's not that much cheaper, Show them the 1500 min plan with the basic two lines. How much is a 1400 min verizon one, with out any mobile anywhere etc? About 50 bucks more a month. Nuff said.
