    I'm coming from Verizon, currently spending 85 bucks a month (40 for 1000 minutes, a plan they no longer offer and 44.95 for unlimited data).

    With taxes and everything else (minus the fan discount, which Verizon will only apply to the voice portion) I'm paying about 90 bucks a month.

    Since I don't use my cell phone for a lot of talking I'll be going down to 450 minutes, unlimited data, the base text plan, and I think with the FAN discount of 20% I should be paying around 65 bucks a month. So that will be a nice change.

    I switched from verizon also where I was paying $90 a month for a far inferior phone. I couldn't be happier with the switch.

    The plan will cost me more in the end

    Not surprised or shocked though as Apple was clear in what the plan will cost

    Same here. Was paying 55 (1/2 plan 35 plus 20 for data), now paying low 70's (35 + 30 plus 8.99 for text), but I get 15% off.

    So I am saying its good enough.

    Some businesses get 25% or so off!

    I was on Pay-as you go before and couldn't apply FAN on my account. Was paying 49.99 Voice + 20.00 Text + 20.00 Data = 89.99 + Tax. Now I am on Post-Paid and CAN apply FAN on my account which gets me 21% discount and am paying 39.99 Voice + 20.00 Text + 30.00 Data = 89.99 / 21% Discount = 71 + Tax. I end up saving ~ 19 USD. Yup very happy:D:eek:
