cheapest smartphone plan with good coverage?

Three people would like to get on smartphones as cheaply as possible. We are willing to take a two-year contract to accomplish this. Any US Mefites on a plan that we would like?

Our current thought is to open 3 lines on a family plan with Verizon or T-Mobile, and each get one of the free phones offered. (Any advice on these phones is appreciated.) This would probably put us at around $50 per person per month, phone included.
This would give us a lot more minutes/texts than we need, however. Is there any way we can go cheaper? We basically just want apps, internet access on the road, and to make the occasional phone call. The reason we are looking at big companies like Verizon is because good coverage is also important to us, especially in NJ/NY/MD.
Thanks for your suggestions!
