    How does this work? Is it allowed? I just signed for an AT&T individual plan a few days ago when I preordered my iPhone 5... so I don't even have an active AT&T line yet. If I wanted to go in with a couple of other people on a shared plan instead, would they allow me to do that? I saw something about not being able to transfer a line for the first 30 days after activating the account.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You can merge different accounts under one. Just call up AT&T.
    You will have to assume responsibility for that line and merge it to the other accounts family plan or create a family plan.

    One single person will be responsible for that account. If the "main holder" does not pay the bill, you are screwed. Just be aware of what this means.

    Not worried about that. Just wondering how it works merging 3 different accounts with one of them being brand new.

    You're not actually merging accounts so one name is liable for all charges. You are canceling two accounts and adding two lines to one account.

    AT&T may request the imei and iccid numbers of the phones you are going to add. Each line added will cost $40 per month on the shared plan and each phone will be subject to a $36 activation fee.
