It seems like we're getting to a point these days where there's a lot of great options for smartphone plans if you bring your own phone. Especially in the unlimited space. After spending a few years with my iPhone on both AT&T and Verizon (where the wife and I were paying ~$135/mo for 700mins talk and unlimited data), I've been pretty happy the last couple months on Straight Talk, where we get Unlimited Talk/Text/Data for $45/mo each. It's even less if you buy multiple months at a time. I like it because the coverage comes from a major carrier (AT&T) and includes LTE speeds. The only downside seems to be them doing some throttling when you try to watch video over LTE, but I haven't really needed to do that when I'm not on Wi-Fi.
Anyway, the reason I'm posting is because I saw AT&T has a new offer where you can do 4 lines with Unlimited talk & Text, plus 10GB of shared data for $160/mo (or $40/line). Seems like a pretty good deal for those that don't use a ton of data, or if your family members only need a little bit and you can use the excess.
So, what kind of plans are you guys using for your smartphones? Are you still on the big boys (AT&T/VZW) plans? Or have you gone the cheaper route with Virgin or Straight Talk and the like?
