Switch from mobile share value plan?

Hope this is the right place for this type of question...

I will soon be in the market to add another Phone line for my youngest and am looking for some advice.


I currently have a Mobile Share Value plan that received the “bonus” increase to 35GB/mo. I’m currently paying

$110- 25% discount + 3 lines @ $20/line = ~$145/ mo. I believe after I add the 4th line, the cost will be ~$165/mo.


If I look at the website, I see that the AT&T Unlimited Extra plan looks to be ~$160/mo for 4 lines.


Both have mobile hotspot (Unlimited Extra is only for 15 gb/line, but that’s enough), and I’m okay with SD streaming since we use streamsaver anyway). So it looks like for about the same $ per month, I can get more data. And since I need to get hardware (iPhone XR or iPhone 11) I might be able to take advantage of one of the deals that are starting to show up since they seem to require an unlimited plan.


Am I missing something here? I’ve had this particular plan for a while and every time I’ve checked in the past, it was better than other available options, but not any more?

You didn’t miss a thing.  Just make sure that when you add the new line, You purchase the new phone on the new line. If you would prefer your child to have a hand me down phone swap the Sim cards after the new phone is activated on the new line.
