    I have been trying to figure out whether its better to get two phones
    under the same plan or two plans? I figure most of the talk time will be
    between the two phones so the unlimited pcs to pcs should do it good but
    thought I would see what everybody else thinkks.

    Re: Two phones on one plan or two plans?

    Two plans would cost at least $70. A plan with Add-a-Phone would
    cost at least $65. What is important is how many non SPCS to SPCS
    minutes would each phone use and the total of those minutes.

    Jerome brings up some good points, but his math is off a touch. The question
    is, how and what type of usage is needed. How many minutes are expected to
    be used on each phone, other than PCS2PCS?

    As it stands now, going with the two plans on the minimum minute option of
    300 minutes, it costs $35 + $5 for PCS2PCS for a total of $40 for each plan
    before taxes, for a total of $80 plus tax etc for both phones. Add the $36
    one time activation fee for the new phone.

    With the add a phone option, which can be applied to the $45/mo. plan W/ AT
    500 minutes or $50/mo. W/700 AT minutes, all one does is spend an additional
    $20/mo. plus the $5/mo. PCS2PCS option (which is applied to the account and
    not to each phone on the account as a separate charge). Then there is the
    $36 one time activation fee, so it's cheaper to do the add a phone option.

    Re: Two phones on one plan or two plans?


    I am considering the same thing - one account with two phones, versus two
    separate accounts. It's pretty easy to look at the plans and determine the
    primary costs, but what I don't know is how all the taxes and fees would add
    up (which is considerable). Are they applied "per phone", or "per account"?
    With fees & taxes between $10 - $20, this could make all the difference.
    Does anybody know how that works?

    Thanks
    Kevin

    On the taxes, most of them are based on a % of the expense of the plan.
    Surcharges can be too, or on a per phone basis, like WLNP @ $1.10/phone per
    month.

    Shouldn't be a big difference either way.
