That's strange how you don't have to pay an extra $30 per month for the unlimited text for the extra line, but you have to pay an extra $30 for data.Ok you currently have the smallest individual plan of 450 min for $39.99 and you have $50 of extra on top of that account ($30 data +$20 unlimited text) This gives you a grand total of $90+$10ish taxes and fees so we call it a 100 even
If you want to add another line to that first you must up your plan to a 550 min family plan of $59.99 a month and I am going to assume you brother will want to text as well so you might as well put on the $30 unlimited text family plan. After that you have to add in the $30 a month for you data plan. I am going to assume you brother is getting an iPhone so that would be another $30 a month data plan.
All this brings you to a grand total of
30.00 Data (iPhone1)
30.00 Data (iPhone2)
10.00 Taxes fees Phone 1
10.00 Taxes and fees Phone 2
That makes you total difference to add your brother $80 give or take. The taxes and fees make it kind of hard to be more exact.
Not really once you know how text messaging works. Text messaging cost a phone company near $0. That $30 is almost 100% pure profit to them. Data on the hand cost them some money to maintain and expand the network on as it does suck up limited amount of bandwidth.That's strange how you don't have to pay an extra $30 per month for the unlimited text for the extra line, but you have to pay an extra $30 for data.
Only one discount would apply to the thing and you will want what ever is greater.I was actually considering doing this, except that I'm the little brother. My older brother has the iPhone 3GS, and just thought about opening up another line and I was going to get an iPhone on it. It does seem that there is hardly any savings at all? Especially if you don't pay for texts and just use an app for it instead? Is there really any true benefit to doing this??
Also, my brother and I go to separate Universities, would we be able to combine both be able to combine our education discounts or would only one apply?
http://www.wireless.att.com/business/authenticateI didn't know about the student discount. My husband and I will be switching and getting 2 iphones very soon. It should have been tomorrow but the stupid IRS is running behind..UGH but what do I need to verify, just a student id?
