How many carriers that you know of are prospering with a $50 unlimited everything?
Cricket??? Boost??? Cricket is looking to merge w/Metro PCS because of thier finances.

I hate to do this again but take your typical unlimited plan...$69.99 AT&T, VZW, USCC done

ADD unlimited text, thats $20 all the way around.

ADD smart phone data ATT=25, VZW=30 ours $20

So if my math skills do not fail me;
AT&T=$115, VZW=$120 and USCC=$109

Now since you just purchased a smart phone, which is the highest trend out there your going to need insurance...AT&T is $5 and VZW is $8.

Thats now AT&T @ 120 and VWZ @ 128, USCC is still @ $109 because the insurance is built into the plan.

Going back to what i have said before...
The typical 39.99 plan comes with 450 min, which is on average 50 minuts short of what the average american uses is not enough for a user. Thats how AT&T and VZW upgrade customers to thier 59.99 (900 min) plan. Which before our 1000 min plan for 49.99 beats that plan any day of the week. You also get 5000 N&W (which start @9), and M2M.

So again if my math is correct USCC 89.99 plan gives 1200 min/Unlimited Text/5 GB data, FREE incoming calls, N&W @7pm, and M2M.

If you were to purchase AT&T with the equalivant services you have 900 min 59.99 (100 short), unlimited text $20, 15-25 in data, and $8 for early N7W, that comes to 103-113 a month. And you cannot get free incoming calls. This plan is more than USCC. And with out the features.

IF you were to purchase VZW, you would have the 900 min plan (100 min less), 5000 text messages for 20 and data for 30. Thats 110 and because VZW doesnt offer early N&W your S.O.L.

So all in all how are we going the wrong direction? Espically now for the light talking user we have a $69.99 plan with 450 min/unlimited text/5GB data.

Did I get my math correct?
