If you have a family plan for your cellphones...

How many lines?
What does the bundle come with?

What service?
How much per month?

We use straight talk and I love it. $45/month/line for unlimited talk and text, plus ten gigs of data each.

Bump for answers.

Our current phone situation is a mess.

My husband has had Virgin for ever and ever so he gets a great rate of $27/month for unlimited data, text, and phone...But we HAVE TO always make sure we keep up on the bill because the first time we default he'll lose that plan.

So you pay $45 for each person?

I have straight talk for myself...but both my daughters don't have anything...they just use wifi. We're getting rid of our house phone and I think it's time they get service on their phones.

You can't pay a full years worth or even half?

Yup. I don't mind paying it. We had US Cellular for a while that was supposed to be similarly priced, but they tacked on a bunch of standard fees each month and it ended up being a bunch more. Straight talk doesn't do that.

We have 4 lines, unlimited talk, text, and data for $180 per month through AT&T.
I live in a rural area, and the only companies that provide here are AT&T and Verizon .

We tried, it calculates the average plan amount ($35) when we do that, but month-by-month stays the same rate.
