The problem for me with the family share plans is that I have a teenage boy on my service and unlimited minutes doesn't matter, unlimited texts are a good thing but limited data is a real problem. I have to use the navigation features of my phone with my job which uses data and my son uses alot of data so we would have to get one of the higher tiered plans and that is where the costs really go up over the current unlimited data plans. For thos that can have 3 or 4 devices connected and get away with 2 or 4 GB per month then these plans are ok I guess, but when you have to use one of the higher plans then the price differance really jumps. And before anyone yells buy a GPS, I can't afford one atm for one and the google map navigation application is way more dependable in the rural areas where I run for another.
I just thru us on ATT on the 10 gig plan to give me some buffer, yes it cost me about 13 bucks more, but the service works. I guess the advantage here in San Diego is that ATT has alot of hot spots and honestly what works for you is what works for you. I am just fed up with Sprint and the lack of network coverage in my area.
Which is also nice is the company I work for is going back to Verizon from ATT. Coverage with sprint ha sbeen a headache. Can't wait for the move.
