Its possible the plans may work out at some point, but with the currently plans that they released I have a strong feeling that will fail. The idea of shared data between phones is not a bad idea. The thing is the plans verizon released are completely ridiculous on what you get for data. 1Gb for $50 bucks, are you serious that is just asking for overcharges. Now if they came up with a plan that offered like 4-5 gigs for $50 bucks shared then fine, but as it stands now the plans are a joke and everyone knows it. The plans will once again be changed next year around "SUMMER" just like last year after they lose customers. In theory shared data is a good idea but its poorly implemented by Verizon. If AT&T has been following whats been going on and I am sure they have they have seen the backlash verizon is having with these new plans. Sure AT&T will follow along but they would be stupid to follow the exact same plans verizon has put out. I am sure they would include more data might not be alot more but will be higher than verizon. Why didn't verizon just keep 30 bucks for 2GB data and 5GB data like there current plans now and have it shared? Basically the new plans work out to be about the same price as new plans but for LESS.
