Okay, here's the deal. My wife and I have a shared plan with Verizon Wireless and have never had any problems at all. As a matter of fact, they really have been great. Our plan is about to expire and I am thinking about starting anew with a family plan with AT&T JUST to get an iPhone. Talk some sense into me (either way). iPhone with AT&T: Pros - very cool, very useful, Apple Cons - iPhone is VERY expensive to purchase Staying with Verizon: Pros - offer for a free Blackberry, no hassle of changing to a new plan Cons - another two year agreement (and envying an iPhone, especially with the new updates coming soon) Thanks for your thoughts and advice!
