    My father is looking to add me to his family plan so I can get an iPhone but we live in different states. From some chatter on the board, I've found out that they wouldn't let me have my area code because the area code for the numbers on the plan have to be in the same zone as the billing address. However, I'd be willing to take a new number with his area code (everyone calls me on a cell anyway). Would that work out, knowing that I'll almost never be making calls from that region anyway? Or will AT&T figure that out and threaten to terminate the plan if I don't make most of the calls from that region? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

    I see why it wouldn't. I think it would be the same as you lived at home and moved out. Maybe get the same area code then a week later change it. With free long distance you wouldn't need to anyways. My daughter is on my plan and lives with her mom, but we do live in the same state. You can just call at&t and ask also.
