The Best Family Cell Phone Plans

The best family cell phone plans contain two or more (up to five) lines combined on a single bill, with one shared family rate plan. Each family member gets his or her own phone and own phone number. Most family plans are priced with two lines included; additional lines are commonly priced at about $ 5-$ 10 each.

Family cell phone plans can save subscribers 25% or more each month off the cost of having a single line for each user. Here are a few more things to think about as you consider a family plan.

• It’s possible with your family cell phone plan to get more than one model with a plan. We have seen a mix of flip phones, Droids, BlackBerry, etc. While the family plan offers you a minimum of two phones, you can sometimes get as many as five for the same per-phone price. Check the carrier’s details.
• With your family cell phone plan, If you get all the lines you’ll need at the very beginning you’ll avoid higher phone prices. For example, if you add a 3 rd. line to a family plan two months when the contract is already running you won’t be considered a new customer, and the costs may run anywhere from 20% to 30% more. Keep this in mind.
• When a family plan is approved with the primary account holder, all other subscribers may be able to get the phones even if they have a lower credit score that would might cancel their chances of getting a phone.
• Family cell phone plans in the U.S., minutes are spent two at a time when all members call each other, or when the plan has free mobile-to-mobile airtime. Most family plans include this, but check the fine print in the contract.
• Family cell phone plan members don’t need to be related; a business can qualify if there is one person responsible for the bill.
• Here’s an important tip when looking at your family cell phone plan, If you want to stay with your carrier when your contract ends, but you discover that they won’t give you a good deal on new phones, consider doing this: Do an entirely new family contract with another member. (Other than the current primary account holder). When a new person is setting up for new service, the account now is new, now eligible for new customer phone pricing. Ditch the old contract when it’s done with the term, as it is unrelated to the new transaction. Here’s a catch: You have to get new numbers and get a different pricing. Could save you money!
