    So if I have two iphones on a family plan, will both phones have a 2gb limit, or will they share the 2gb? Anyone know how ATT will handle this?

    There is no family data plan with at&t, each phone has its own data plan. Therefore, it would be 2 GB per iPhone.

    Nothing on that fact sheet says anything about shared a family data plan. Actually if you figured it out the voice and data prices listed are with a data plan charge for each line.

    Does AT&T allow you to share text messaging on their family plan?

    Only if you purchase the $30 family unlimited text plan. Otherwise, the 200 text or 1500 texts are just for the specific iPhone.

    Wow thanks so much for that PDF, it helps a bunch and explains everything. The person earlier is right that there is no FAMILY data plan, although the PDF makes it seem like there is, Look:

    AT&T DataPlus (2Lines) Gets You
    500 Anytime Minutes, Unltd Mobile/Nights&Wknds
    200MB Per Month
    For $89.99

    It looks like a family plan, but they are still charging you $15 for each line for Data.

    That sucks. Guess I'll keep that $5.00 from the reduced data plan in my pocket.

    Okay maybe I'm missing a Friday but I would assume "total voice and data" means the price of voice AND data. That's how it reads to me. I mean it says
    "+ AT&T DataPro (2 lines)".

    That's exactly what incindium is saying; maybe you should re-read his post for better comprehension.

    He clearly states: "voice and data prices listed are with data plans charged for each line." That CLEARLY means there is not a "shared" data plan to which the OP was referring.

    All they have done is added the cost of 2 DataPro plans to the cost of the family talk time. It looks like a family data plan, but it is not. If you add another line with data they will add $10 for the line and the associated cost of the data plan.

    Okay, fine. I am not going to argue semantics. Whatever you want to call it.
    Bottom line is I understand the charges. I understand each phone gets it's own 2GB cap. Asked this somewhere else. So for my example for datapro 700 min it would be if I am right

    2 phones
    119 plan
    30 texting

    Each additoinal phone
    10 phone
    25 plan

    Connection fees? Any other fee's I need to factor in? Insurance (if I want it)
    Not to mention my ETF's with Verizon. Have disliked Verizons business tactics for a while and am tired of my LG dare.

    Yes there are generally $36 per line activation fees, can easily be waived if you buy your iPhones through a retail AT&T store. Apple employees will not be able to get those fees waived.

    Do I need to pay for a month of the plan when I buy/activate the phone?

    No but your first montly service bill will include a partial month (average 10-25 days dending on the billing date the is assigned by the system) of service based on the date of activation + a full month of service + any activation fee ($36) or upgrade fee ($18).

    That first bill can be quite a shock. Start saving now....
