Iphone 4 through Verizon with unlimited texts, 500mins, 2GB data plus two dumb phones with everything but calling blocked for $119 a month
Hubby builds Verizon cell towers and communication towers for the oil/gas industries so he is in very, very remote locations quite often (business trip announcements start with "is there an actual hotel or should I go get the tent out?". He can connect via a COW sometimes but mostly, he's connecting to tower electronics that are only partially assembled and not on the tower yet, so 99% of the time it's only good enough to send texts to other Verizon phones. His employer pays for him to have an Iphone 4S with unlimited everything.
The dumb phones with everything but actual calling blocked are for our kiddos. They spend 2hrs + on the school bus daily and go to school in separate towns so between that and after-school stuff (and hubby being out-of-ton or in the middle of BFE) I want a phone on each one. Schools encourage phones here due to our remote location.
Crazy thing is because Verizon has mobile to mobile free minutes, I generally use less than 30mins between all phones. Everyone I know has a Verizon phone it seems!
