    Well, you could cut out the text messages if you wanted to make it $70. But that price does not include taxes.

    What fees are you talking about? Taxes will probably only make it a few extra dollars

    You're kidding, right? There are state and gov't surcharges too.

    My monthly service charges are:
    $39.99 - 450 minutes
    $20.00 - unlimited txting
    $30.00 - "unlimited" data
    $89.99

    My total, after 5% discount through my school, is $100.96.

    450 Min 39.99 - 14% disc.
    200 bonus min - free
    Data 30.00 - 14% disc.
    200 text 5.00
    200 bonus text- Free

    Total +/- 70.00

    Plus I have about 8400 R/O min after I came off my 900 min. Gen 1 plan.

    Not bad, but certainly not as good as my other T-Mobile plan.

    Most colleges and universities have Fan Discounts; just ask your AT&T CSR at the corporate store and they'll need to see a copy of your school ID card or if your company has a Fan Discount then show your company ID and you're set for 15%-25% discounts....:cool::cool::cool:

    I pay about $70 for 650 minutes (feature code added 200 minutes), 750 texts (another feature code), and the unlimited data. I also get a 20% discount for being a state employee.

    That's similar to T-Mobile, but I think there's unlimited minutes for T-Mobile as well and it's very reasonably priced....:cool::cool::cool:

    If you're on a family plan, I think it's the cheapest. Mine's about 55-60 dollars a month

    I think I spend something like 5 bucks a month off of that 30 dollar plan. I essentially just want the data and don't want the number to die.

    Fido Prepaid, $10.

    I don't see the point of this thread, I remember there was previous thread with the same topic. It looks like this forum is going around and around in a cycle with almost the same topics.

    I pay £20 ($32.76) for 600 mins, 1200 texts and unlimited data on an O2 SIMplicity tariff.

    Not a bad deal, I think. It shocks me to see how much people in the US pay for mobile tariffs. It also shocked me when I found out that incoming minutes are taken from your total over there too. It doesn't make any sense!
