Alright, so here's where I stand. I'll just lay it out in bullets. I think I've got it figured out, but I need some reassurance here. It's a lot to read, I know, but please, if anyone's dealt with a similar circumstance, give me any input you might have. Thanks My current situation: My wife and I got married a few weeks ago. Definitely time for our own plan. I was on my parents' AT&T FamilyTalk plan, and she is on a Verizon individual plan. I preordered my iPhone 4S for my line last Friday. Today, I successfully transferred billing responsibility OUT of my parents' family plan and into my new plan. Everything shows up fine on my account for my line. It's an individual plan with only my line in the account now. I'll activate my new 4S when it arrives on Friday. Not expecting an issue here. I know it would have been cheaper to add her to the family plan, but my parents are already maxed out on lines. That's a non-option. And yes, I thought long and hard (and looked at all my past usage) before doing the transfer, because it DID strip me of my precious grandfathered unlimited data. Now here's what I intend to do going forward: Stand in line at the Apple Store in the wee hours of the morning on Friday. Buy her 4S as a NEW individual line on AT&T and port her number to it. Add her line to my AT&T account -- so now my account will house two individual lines. Lastly, merge the two lines into one new FamilyTalk plan. Based on everything I've read, this really seems to be the best way of doing things -- but, of course, this stuff is never totally cut-and-dry. So -- does anyone have (A) experience doing something like this, or (B) a particular reason why this should not work?
