Can you add a prepaid GoPhone to a family plan?

Hi, I just recently bought a Nokia Lumia 520 prepaid GoPhone off of Amazon to mainly use as a media/gaming device. Both of my parents use the $160 shared family plan for their iPhones, and I was wondering if they could add my GoPhone to the plan for $15 without signing a contract for it. Thanks Smiley Happy

Yes, it's possible. The easisest way would be to say you want to add a line and you already have a device, they'll give you a new SIM & number and you'll just put it in. If you want to keep the number, I'm sure that's possible too but you will lose your prepaid account balance.

Thanks! Another question, can I switch back to a prepaid plan later?

Yes,  when you add the line to your parents account like was described, you will not have a service contract, so you will just be on a minth-to-month basis much like a pre-paid plan.  You can cancel that line at any time with no extra fees.
