Verizon has a cell phone plan for $28.00 per month plus $.30 per minute with unlimited anytime network minutes and a free flip phone for new customers. How do I put this in an equation. Sprint has a plan for $30.00 per month plus $.029 per minute unlimited minutes on weekend, but you must purchase a $70.00 phone with a $40.00 rebate and sign up for a 2 year contract.
Which one of these plans is a better deal?

Since Sprint requires a 2year (24month) contract, for M months and m nonweekend minutes per month, that is
(7030) + 24(30+.029m) = 760 + .696m
Verizon for 24 months with m nonnetwork minutes minutes each, charges
24(28+.3m) = 672 + 7.2m
All that stuff about weekend minutes, nonnetwork minutes throws everything off, but with equal numbers of charged minutes, Verizon is a better 2year deal only if
672 + 7.2m < 760 + .696m
m < 13.5
