Verizon Wireless today announced new Share Everything plans.

These plans include unlimited voice minutes and unlimited messaging (text, picture, video). Once these devices are added to an account, shared data (up to 10 devices) starts at $50 per month for 1GB. Other data options include $60 for 2GB, $70 for 4GB, $80 for 6GB, $90 for 8GB, and $100 for 10GB. Verizon's mobile hotspot feature is included in the plan for no extra charge.
