My parents don't want to pay the high monthly rate of an iPhone, but I REALLY want an iPhone 4, and am now drooling over it. I got some friends together, and we made a loose little idea (we will strengthen it once we get parents' approval). We would all buy the iPhone separately, but we would all join and contribute (with money from jobs) towards a family plan. We would be allowed to be on a family plan right, even though we aren't a family? What are the advantages of a family plan? Discounts? How many people can be on a family plan? Is the price discounted the more people there is? Basically, what would the price be? Would it be just like paying a single plan, or paying like more plans? If you respond, please try to answer all of my questions, and not just refer me to some manual or something.
