300 minutes (mobile and landline) - remember in the uk receiving does not take minutes from your allowance
Genuinely unlimited data
All for £ 15 on Three UK pay as you go. Contrary to a lot of reports, I'm finding their network to be excellent.

Unlimited incoming calls from any number.
Unlimited 3G data.

Keep in mind that included 'minutes' in the UK and US are very different.
In the US, both calling and receiving counts and minutes are deducted for both. Also, calls to mobile phones and landlines are never differentiated -- calls to mobiles and landlines are always the same cost.
In the UK, only outgoing calls count and incoming is paid for by the person calling you. Calling mobiles in the UK is always more expensive than calling landlines , so some plans have different quotas for landline calls and mobile calls. Generally, however, minutes in the UK are for both mobile and landline calls.
Just thought I'd clarify for those not familiar -- it makes a difference when comparing costs.

LQ Quantum - 200 meg data
iPhone - 2 gigs data
Family plan with lowest minutes, unlimited texting. Just added the quantum so the bill will probably be about 120-130.
4 phones, all dumb phones. Two of the lines were originially smart phones but we knocked them down to leave for at&t. Still paying for them though because the ETF sucks. That bills about 100.

Even with my FAN discount, I was paying about $10/mo less to have your basic Flip Phone (send a text message on that phone? BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!) with 900 minutes (more than I ever used, but their 400 minute plan wasn't enough, and they had NO in between) than I'm paying now to have my iPhone 4 with unlimited texts & unlimited data. Even with the ETF, I still managed to come out ahead within a few months of leaving. Verizon was great, if you have a family plan, but it's just me, and virtually everyone I called was on AT&T.
When I originally switched, I'd bought a refurbished iPhone 3G, and simply had the unlimited data & 200 text messages, and ended up paying less. It was about a year before I added the unlimited texts, since I had a manager who did virtually everything by text message

I pay about $220 a month. I have two iPhone 4s with unlimited data, and a 3GS on the 250 MB plan. Also have a dumb phone with no data. Unlimited texting on all. Just dropped to 700 minutes from 1400 because of the unlimited mobile to mobile. Also have two lines with roadside assistance, and family map.
