Who do you have and where do you live?
I'm trying to find something cheaper than what I have with AT&T. One smartphone with 3GB data and 2 regular phones with unlimited text for all the phones, unlimited data for the two regular cell phones, 700 mins, unlimited mobile to mobile, and unlimited nights and weekends in IL down by STL is $199.75 a month. It's $9.99 per extra line. $19.99 for unlimited data and texting for those two phones (it covers both phones is not two separate charges) That is $39.97. Neither phone has insurance on them as we already had the phones when they were pay as you go and switched them over. I paid insurance up front on the smartphone since it was either $150 upfront or $9.99 a month for 24 months (I'll let you do the math to figure out the cheaper deal). 3GB for $30 that makes it $69.97. Then it's $60 for our 700 minutes and another $30 for family messaging and unlimited mobile to mobile for $159.97, the rest is tax. We don't talk to many people who don't have cellphones. We currently have 5,407 roll over minutes and that's after we just lost some because they expired.
I looked into straight talk the data is 4g until you use 2.5gb than it slows down to 2g (may as well go use dial up) for any additional data. Not for me.
Any plans where we don't have to have so many minutes and we can get a cheaper deal, unlimited texting and data for the regular cells, 4g all the time, and unlimited mobile to mobile and nights and weekends?

How many minutes a month? Unlimited texting? Unlimited mobile to mobile?

See that's a lot more reasonable.
