Contact form Not Working Keeps Giving Me Array

So I have this contact script which works great in firefox but whenever anyone tries it in ie 7 or 8 the plan always returns array and for the life of me I cant figure out what I did wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  if(!$_POST) exit;

    $name     = $_POST['name'];
    $email    = $_POST['email'];
    $phone    = $_POST['phone'];

    $address1    = $_POST['address'];
    $address2    = $_POST['address2'];
    $city    = $_POST['city'];
    $state    = $_POST['state'];
    $zip    = $_POST['zip'];
    $plan   = $_POST['plan'];
    $verify   = $_POST['verify'];

    if(trim($name) == '') {
        echo '<div class="error_message">Attention! You must enter your name.</div>';
