    Thinking about getting an iphone but i have a couple of problems.

    1. Can i add an iphone to a family share plan in regards to minutes and txt messages . I understand you need to pay 30 bucks a month for data but my question is can just take the minutes and txt messages to my iphone .

    2. General question - how can these cell companies charge so much , its ridiculous?

    What country and carrier?

    Most carriers force you into signing up for a data plan when you purchase a 'smartphone' such as an iPhone. This is where they make their money back for selling the device for dirt cheap.

    You cannot simply get voice and minutes now-a-days for an iPhone...

    But what country and carrier?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Yes, you can share minutes and text plans on a family plan.
    If you go with AT&T their plans are a little cheaper and you can get a low data plan for $15 or 2GB's for $25.
    And get the lowest minute family plan and add unlimited calling to any cellphone on any carrier for free if you add unlimited texting to your family account.
