It is very possible that what happened to me would happen to you.  I was an Alltel customer before Verizon gobbled them up.  Under Alltel I had a Nationwide calling plan that was $59.99/mo that gave me 900 minutes.  Tack on a $30/mo unlimited data plan and a second line for $9.99 and applicable taxes and fees I was paying north of $115/mo.  When Verizon stepped in, they grandfathered my plan.  Even when my LG Glimmer met with an unfortunate end and I got a Moto Droid, they still allowed me to keep my plan.  My bet is you'd get grandfathered as well had the merger been allowed to happen.

What phone and carrier?  How many minutes?  Any additional lines?

Since everyone has unlimited night and weekend minutes, I'm not sure there's a reason to have unlimited minutes anymore.  The family plan I'm on has five lines sharing 700 minutes and we've never exceeded that.  That said, you do come out 200 minutes ahead of the Verizon plan for the same $70 and two lines, I just doubt anyone would use those minutes.  The money is definitely in data and texting these days.

I'm betting he has Sprint unlimited.

I have 300 minutes, unlimited text video and picture messaging, 500mb of data, plus caller id for around $65 a month on my Blackberry.

I'll have 2 GB/month of data, unlimited texting and more minutes than I need once the iPhone 5 comes out for $60 a month.  But I do save some by being on a family plan.

Your unlimited isn't unlimited. T-mobile caps their data, check the fine print.
