    That is a killer deal. Must either be a typo, or a regional option. I don't have that option on the site.

    Cheapest Nat'l plan is 200 mins for $35.

    it's available in Chicago only, and there's a sister plan: 1500 minutes for $45, with all other details the same...sharetalk lines are $20/month

    Keep the Faith,

    Lance

    City of Chicago only, you must have a Chicago phone number to get these plans, at least for now

    Keep the Faith,

    Lance:

    Will this be a promo only plan? Or will folks currently in contract be able to switch to it. If/when it becomes available for everyone else?

    don't know how long, it was just launched friday...it is not a promo plan, like the $39.95 plan was when it launched...current customers can migrate to this plan, but they will not get the free incoming unless they renew their contract (unless they already have it)...free n/w and free m2m will NOT carry over to these two plans, but it is noteworthy that the $4.95 buys unlimited n/w @ 7pm, not just 3000...for six month rule purposes, the $35 plan counts as a $40 plan, and the $45 plan counts as a $50 plan, meaning you can migrate from a Local 1100 to the National 1500 or from a Local 900 to the National 1000 without violating the 6-month rule (which states that you have to stay at or above the price point that you signed your contract with for the first six months - this price point determines not only what your promo is, but also how much you pay for your phone...for example: on a $50 plan, the Audiovox 8900 is currently $29.95, on a $40 plan, it would be $59.95)

    Keep the Faith,

    Lance

    Wow, that is a killer deal. I hope they do roll it out for other markets soon.

    What if you have a Chicago area code (312 or 773) but the billing address is in the suburbs? Still eligible for this plan?

    that would definitely be sweet, but i don't see that happening any time soon, unless there's a major plan restructuring in the works (no, i haven't heard anything) for these reasons:

    1) Chicago is our biggest and most competitive market by far
    2) the obvious advantages over our other plans

    what the competition in Chicago is offering (all prices include 2 lines, unlimited n/w, unlimited m2m, 7pm nights except as noted):

    Cingular
    $83.98: Nation 600
    $83.98: Nation 850
    $103.98: Nation 1250

    T-Mobile
    note: 7pm nights not available
    $49.99: Family Time Basic, 400 "Whenever"
    $69.99: Family Time Plan, 850 "Whenever"
    $99.99: Family Time Plus, 1600 "Whenever"

    Verizon
    note: unlike the other plans listed on this post, these are not "true" nationwide plans, 7 pm nights not available
    $59.99: AC 400
    $69.99: AC 500
    $79.99: AC 800
    $99.99: AC 1200

    Sprint
    note: price also include $5 F&CA option to allow comporable coverage with the other carriers, unlimited PCS to PCS requires 2 year contract
    $65: F&C 300
    $70: F&C 500
    $80: F&C 700
    $90: F&C 1100
    $95: F&C 1400

    uscc
    note: free incoming requires 1 year contract on renewal or 2 year with new activation or to get promo and equipment discount (unless you already have the free incoming promo), free incoming and n/w are "Local" only (which covers quite a bit of the Midwest), contract also gives first 3 months free on the sharetalk line, unlimited m2m is not included, but price listed includes the $14.95 option for 3000 shared m2m
    $74.90: National 1000
    $84.90: National 1500

    i did not include Nextel, as they don't have any "family" plans, only the "Team Share" plans, which are really pooled business plans, and not really comparable to other carrier's shared plans

    Keep the Faith,

    Lance

    Works for suburban zip codes! This is an awesome deal! This could make me finally switch!!! I would opt for the 1500-minute plan.

    while the n/w are "Local" only (according to Verizon's website, AC plans get free "home" n/w and it appears this is similar to uscc's "Local" n/w, but with a MUCH larger footprint), for $15 less than you'd pay for Verizon's AC 1200, you get 7pm nights, free incoming, and an extra 300 anytime, PLUS the advantage of ZERO roaming charges in all 50 states

    Keep the Faith,

    Lance
