    My wife has an Iphone with a 22% corporate FAN discount...Can she/we buy another iphone with another plan with her billing discount (for me)...?? It works out cheaper than the family plan....

    Yes
    I don't see how its cheaper to have 2 seperate lines/accts however.

    Family plan:
    Main line minimum $70 +$30 data +txt plan + Taxes (700 shared mins)
    2nd line $9.99 +$30 data + txt plan + taxes
    Total =$150~ + taxes (based on $5 200msg txt pkg for both) - fam discount =$120~ + taxes

    2 separate planes
    $40 +$30 data +txt plan + taxes (450 minute plan (only has 500 night/wkend mins))
    Total =$150~ + taxes (based on $5 200msg txt pkg for both) - fam discount =$120~ + taxes
    Odd they cost the same*

    Change it to the 900 min plan:
    $60 +$30 data +txt plan + taxes
    Total =$190~ + taxes (based on $5 200msg txt pkg for both) - fam discount =$150~ + taxes
    **1400 min Family plan is $90 which makes the Family plan still cheaper.

    Even this route;
    Phone 1.
    $40 +$30 data +txt plan + taxes (450 minute plan (only has 500 night/wkend mins))
    Phone 2
    $60 +$30 data +txt plan + taxes (900 minute plan)
    Total =$ 170~ + taxes (based on $5 200msg txt pkg for both) - fam discount =$136~ + taxes
    Family plan is still cheaper

    * however you have unlimited nights/wkend on the family plan

    If you both use the full 450 mins then yes its cheaper.
    I have 2 accts both with the same fam discount. You both will have to goto a AT&T Corp store to get it set up. I don't think the phone drones are smart enough to do it :rolleyes:
