Cost to finish drywall? Pricing formula?

I was wondering if you guys could give me a idea of the price it cost to finish drywall? I hung everything. This is in a basement for walls only. I used the biggest pieces i could and only ended up with 3 butt joints. Is there a price for mudd/taping/finishing per sq ft. Im just trying to get a ball park. I have looked online but i have found old post's and prices that are all over the board. There is a good amount of corner beading to be done. There are two closets, two small, one reg size window and a 4 10' beams that i boxed in. Everything else is strait wall. I plan to get 2 or 3 estimates when i finish but i would like to know around what to expect.Thanks!

Not going to happen. Your going to have to make some calls to local tradesman to get pricing.
Most will not even quote if they did not hang it, because most often it's done wrong so do not be offened if some are not willing to come look at it.
Do not expect to qet quotes over the phone. If there not willing to come look at the job move on and call the next person.
