OK, this is kinda related to this thread about a new T-Mobile plan, but I want to highlight the Family Plans.
So as an individual you get unlimited min/txt + 500mb of data plus hotspot for $50
but as a Family you get a better deal.
2 Lines for $40 each ($80)
3 Lines for $30 each ($90)
4 Lines for $25 each ($100)
5 Lines for $22 each ($110)
and each person gets the same plan as the the individual paying $50
Plus no contracts required, so if you pool with friends and your friend is a dead beat, no worries about him costing you $200 for an ETF.
Also in my case, I was previously on the Family Value plan was paying $5 for 200mb but now it's included and upgraded to 500mb with free hotspot. So I'm saving $5/line
*you can switch over as long as you are at least 18 months into your existing plan. You will still have to finish out your current plan even though this says "no contract" but if you are out of contract this will not extend your contract.
**corrected my earlier statement, 2GB is available for $10/month, if you want to pick and choice which line gets more data, add the 500MB first then edit each line individually
