Mobile Share Questions

Here's my list of "inFAQs"!

 

1.  I understand that you can have groups on one account under the Mobile Share plan.  Does this mean that I can have five lines on one account in the following scenario?

 

A. Line 1-Smartphone, individual Nation450 plan, no text messaging, grandfathered unlimited data

B. Lines 2-5 - 2 Smartphones and 2 Basic phones, Mobile Share with 4GB data

 

2.  Will each line on a Mobile Share plan still have it's own contract end and upgrade dates?

 

3.  How will FAN discounts be applied to the Mobile Share plan?

We have not announced a date just yet but you can keep an eye on this site for updates! You can also sign up for an email notification when Mobile Sharing becomes available.

HI All,

 

I have 10 lines total

 

1 account has 5 lines

 

1 account has one line

 

1 account has 2 lines

 

and another account 2 lines

 

Family talk is limited to 5 lines per group.  This new plan shows it allows up to 10.  Am i able to move all these accounts into one and have 1 account , or can the mobile share be distributed to all the different accounts up to 10 devices

 

I only spread out the lines on different accounts for billing purposes

 

Thanks

 

 


It sounds like Mobile Sharing will be a great option for you!

 

Since Mobile Sharing allows for 10 devices, you can mix and match your accounts as much or as little as you want. 

 

You can keep lines grouped as well.

Jam...your post is for the Shared Data Plan which hasn't become effective as of yet, correct?


Yes, that is correct.

Tethering and Mobile Hotspot are included at all data levels with the Mobile Share plans.



Does it mean if I have a wifi version iPad, I can share the internet connection on the go via tethering without additional cost? Sounds too good to be true.

Yes, that's exactly what it means.

So, what is going to happen if I have a Blackberry that is using Enterprise plan because of the requirement to use BES?  Can a Blackberry that needs to use BES be part of Mobile Share plan?

Hopefully they will continue to offer both plans for a long time. The old plan suits me just fine but maybe down the road the shared plan will be better for me.

they make no mention of business class enterprise data in mobile share - suspect you wil need to stay with what you have

That's a good question. Let me get some clarification on enterprise plans and I'll update the thread with what I find out.

On my current plan there is an iphone with a 60 dollar talk plan, 30 dollar unlimited data, and 30 dollar family messaging. There are two messaging phones with the 10 dollar line fee. One of those phones is looking to upgrade to a smart phone and would get the 20 dollar 300 MB plan. 

Would we be able to put two of the phones on the mobile share plan, and keep the messaging phone on the unlimited text plan and 10 dollar line fee with no data, instead of paying 30 dollars for that too?

Sure can!

 

You can create groups within your family plan so you can have a couple phones on the Mobile Share plan and other phones on their own plan.

So i could put the smart phone and the iphone on the 1gb mobile share plan which would cost 130, and then add ten for the messaging phone? Would the messaging phone still have unlimited messaging?

You've mostly got it. 

 

Your two smartphones would be on the mobile share plan (1GB of data & unlimited talk/text) = $130 (plus fees/taxes)

 

If you added the messaging phone to the mobile share plan as well, it would be another $30 a month (data, unlimited talk/text)

 

If you left the messaging phone out of the mobile share plan, it would be on it's own seperate plan. Those $10/month fee is for unlimited data on a non-smartphone (a messaging phone). You would still need to have a voice plan and the Messging Unlimited feature on that phone. 

 

I think you'd be better off having all three phones part of the mobile share plan. That would bring your monthly fee to $160 (plus taxes/fees).
