Default 7130e with Family Plan

Please Login to Remove!

Does anybody have the 7130e (Verizon) on a family plan? I currently have the "core" package and wanted to throw on my parents to my plan - but have been quoted around $120 for the service! I find this a but steep but in comparing with Cingular, it looks like a similar setup would be around the same.

Just want to make sure i'm looking at this right. Dang, thats alot of $$ a month!

Thats about right. This is my cost with Verizon Primary on the 1000 minute family plan is 59.99 plus 3 phones (wife, son , and mother)29.97 plusBB unlimited $44.99 = 134.95 plus taxes and whatever other little charges they throw in for about 150.00 a month.

Default Verizon says can't do it.

I just bought the 7130e, and wanted to put the wife on a family plan for voice only. Verizon said that data plans can not be combined with family plans, and that I would need to setup a separate voice only plan for the wife.

Untrue.

I have the family share plan 500 mins. My spouse has just a standard voice phone. When I got my BB they added the $44.95 unlimited BB plan to my bill. Simple.
