Verizon rolls out new plan for families who want to share minutes, texts and data

CLEVELAND - Going over his 450 minutes a month has cost Nathan Firkus an extra $80 per month on his cellphone bill.

Verizon's new "Share Everything" plan could potentially prevent that added expense.

Thursday, the company rolled out the new single voice, text and data plan. It covers up to 10 devices on one line.

Company spokesman Jeremy Nussbaum said it is unlimited calling for every person on the account, so it eliminates worries about overages.

Data, however, is not unlimited. Customers must choose the amount of data they are willing to pay for each month to share with other lines on the account. Verizon will charge at least $15 for going over the pre-determined amount of data per month.

Verizon Wireless has an interactive tool on its website to help customers determine if the "Share Everything" plan will save them money on their phone bill.
