    Im in the US so I pay an arm and a leg and my phone is forever locked to AT&T even after my contract expires:D
    Oh, I also pay to receive calls and texts messages from others. I know its not a familiar thing to users outside the US.

    Unlimited Messaging

    and then for each line I have:
    iPhone 4S - 6GB Data
    iPhone 3G - 500 MB Data
    Samsung Galaxy SII - 100MB Data, unlimited US/International texts
    Blackberry Torch 9810 - 500MB Data

    and I pay 140ish after taxes.

    May I ask how you pay for incoming calls and messages? Like, how exactly does it work in conjunction with plans etc? Thanks you :eek:

    Lets say you have 500 minutes per month and 200 texts.
    When someone calls you they deduct the 5 minute phone call from your account and the callers account also. So kinda like double billing.
    And if someone sends you a text even though you have no way of not accepting/rejecting the message you get charged for it. Also the sender does.
    Does it make sense?:D
    Its like sending a letter and you pay for the stamp/postage and the receive has to pay again for it too wether he likes it or not.

    Family plan 2100 minutes, unlimited texts, and UNLIMITED THROTTLING....

    My data plan plan by the 17th of every month is slower than anything. This ATT plan of trying to secretly force people to go on their capped plans.

    Like a clown on a unicycle in the middle of a blizzard....its a slippery slope ATT...customers don't appreciate being pigeon holed when we have been paying and loyal customers for 5+ years.

    Pay as you go Simplicity.

    For £25.50 sterling I receive ;

    300 cross network minutes.
    50 mms.

    Just renewed with O2, I didn't want to, but my only other real option was three who had great prices but poor coverage.

    It's a one year iPhone contract.....£15 per month, with average allowances. I can add bolt ons as I wish if required....it was the best I could find.

    plan

    Verizon family plan:

    1400 anytime minutes
    10 friends & family (pick any 10 numbers and get unlimited calling)
    free nights
    free weekends
    unlimited texting (both lines; sms/mms/pms...whoops that last isn't right...)
    unlimited data (both lines)
    12% company discount

    about $126
    after taxes: $148

    so $63 per line before taxes for all that.

    side note: do other people in the US have tax rates that high? that is $22 of tax on a $126 bill which rounds to 17.5% tax rate. I'm in the Chicago area (which i know is higher tax).

    Anyone else know the tax rate they are paying on their cell phone bill?

    i just found another thread and illinois is 4th highest state in terms of cell phone tax with an average of about 20-21%. Nevada was only 6%....bah!

    I don't have a plan I guess. I bought my 3GS factory unlocked, and I have a 7 euro contract for 100 min/texts that I can increase or decrease (or cancel) per month. It's pretty flexible. I pay 5 cents a megabyte. They also offer 500MB for 10 euro's, but that's much more than I use.

    ----------

    Not in any way :eek:

    That's not kinda like double billing, that IS double billing. How the hell do they get away with that? I had no idea it works that way in the US.

    Really happy with it. Moved from Orange a few months ago and this is such an improvement in every way.

    My 200MB plan lasts because I have WiFi at the places of which I spend most of my time: Home, school, work and friend's houses :)
