I am not certain exactly what PDF you are looking at so I don't even know how accurate this information is but let's pretend you are looking at the right information since I do know the right information. Smile

On a single line, if you take our most popular packages, add messaging and data, you are paying much less and you are contract-free. Not only that, those points "you may never use" will be used because you can upgrade your phone every (in some cases) 11 months if you used those points just for phone upgrade acceleration.

On family plans, the majority of plans out there are already paying the $70 for the base plan plus $30 for messaging. Let's look at Verizon's family plan...

Let's pretend you have four-lines at verizon wireless on their 1400 minute plan. That's $140 with two lines ($120+20).

USC plan would be the family essential at $100 plus $40 for two more lines. Same price. Granted your minutes are a little less with us but verizon doesn't give you Unlimited Incoming Calls, which takes care of 30-50% of minutes anyway, nor Nights and Weekends at 7 (Theirs are 9). Other things that Verizon doesn't give you are:

-No contracts after first.
-Upgrade phones earlier than 18 months.
-Plans with phone replacement.
-Overage caps ($50 for single line, $150 for family).
-Overage protection.
-Overage forgiveness.
-Battery swap.
-A true way to backup your phone without paying for both data and app charges.

You can still add a smartphone plan a-la-carte to one line if necessary as well. The "PLUS" plans are family plans that bundle smartphone data.
