We have had a "family plan" for years and years. We have 2 phones and after taxes and fees and government surcharges the bill comes to close to $100.00 a month. We hardly ever use the phones as hubby and I both work within 2 miles of the house. We don't text. We do have 3 small children and I wouldn't feel comfortable not having a phone. Does anyone have a verizon prepay phone? What do you think of it?
