    Was convinced a year ago to stay with sprint and utilize their share
    plan. Was told I could put whole family on plan and share minutes. Now a
    year into the plan while attempting to put my last daughters phone on
    the account they tell me there is a five phone limit and I will have to
    sign up for another plan for the sixth phone. Needless to say I now have
    purchased 7 sprint phones for nothing.

    Does anyone know of a cell company that will allow 6 phones to share
    minutes. I am looking to write off the loss of the sprint phones and go
    with another company that does not lie just to sign people up.

    How many times have you visited SPCS's site, and read up on the family
    plan. SPCS has always placed a five phone limit on their add-a-phone
    plans.

    Is there a way you could qualify for a business plan? If you could, I
    don't believe there is a limit on the number of phones,.

    Re: Sprint share plan

    The business thing is a good idea, but if you do the math, there is not
    really a whole lot of difference in $ if you had 2-3phone plans vs the
    extra charges --especially if you're paying the $20 for the add ons--the
    M2M is going to work either way.

    Re: Sprint share plan

    It's confusing, doesn't it depend on the size of the plan, day and or
    hour of the week, and attitude of c/s guy you talk to, etc.

    Re: Sprint share plan

    Consumer accounts are limited to 5 lines per account.. even if you were
    NOT on a Add-A-Phone plan, you would still only be able to activate 5
    phones on the account.. You will have to activate a second account to
    have a phone available for your daughter.. However, I believe you only
    allowed to have ONE account per Name and SS#. So you may have to
    activate this second account under your wife's name and SS# (If your
    daughter is under 18) or if she is not under 18, activate it under her
    name.

    Now if you run a business, you could convert you account under your
    business name and run you Tax ID number, and see if it qualifies for
    more than 5 lines.. Business accounts are the only accounts I know were
    you can qualify for more than 5 lines, but the credit has to be run off
    your business' tax ID number, not your SS#.

    I had the $10/phone plan on 5 phones, and on my retention deal they
    insisted on $20/phone (only the added ones, not the primary), but
    comp'd two phones. The net is $40 in add-a-phone charges on a 5 phone
    plan.

    When Retention enters the discussion, the rules *are* different. Since=20
