    Im just wondering if I can add an new line to my at&t plan without creating a family plan? Right now Its just me on the account but my mom wants the iPhone 3gs so Im going to add here to my account but I dont necessarily want to create a family plan, I just want 2 separate lines. Is that possible?

    Yes as well. They will run a credit check. Depends on your credit score, you can open up mutiple lines. I also read something about deposit (in case you got bad score,) but I'm not familiar with the deposit option.

    You are just getting two seperate individual accounts, correct?

    Getting two individual plans is more expensive than a family plan... unless I'm forgetting something

    true but it's good if you're helping out a family member/friend who doesn't have credit or if you don't want to share minutes.

    I have 2 Seperate lines. If i remember correctly I was told that they did not do a credit check again if you've been with them for awhile. That it was totally based off your previous payment history with them now. I got the second line so my sister could get a phone without a deposit. I didn't want to share minutes and wanted her line to be it's own "entity" so it's easily done. If you already have service, just log into your account and click on the add line tab and go from there.
