I have a post pay line that is not under contract. I am looking to Add a Line that uses my current monthly minutes. BUT I don't want a 2 Year contract on the line addition. So I was thinking about picking up a Go Phone because it has a very low device price and No contract.
Would I then be able to "Add a Line" and bring this Go Phone over to the Post Pay?
In the end would I end up with an extra line $10 a month and same minutes and no contract changes on my current and new line? This would be ideal for me.

Yes - you can convert an existing GoPhone line of service to post paid as an additional line under a family plan. And if you provide your own device (i.e. GoPhone) for the additional family plan line, it should not be placed under contract. The only small variance I see from what you'd like is you will have a slightly different pool of minutes to share than you currently have under an individual plan.

Hmmm. I have a 450 individual plan for $39. Based on what you said I just looked up family plans and the lowest one is 550 plan for $59 + $9 extra line. Are you saying I would have to move to this $59 + $9 plan in order to share a line? I can't keep my current 450 plan and share these min for $9 more?
$30 more dollars a month for 100 more min? I hope this is not the case.

That is correct, although with a family plan of only two lines, the additional line charge is included in the $59/month fee - so it would be $20/month more for a shared bucket of 550 minutes. (The additional $10 line fee would not come into play unless you are adding a third + line of service.)
It seems deceptive when they say "Add a line for only $10" - but it is an accurate statement if you are already a family plan member. And a family plan is a significantly better deal than two individuals paying $40/month each for individual service. (If you need unlimited messaging, the family messaging plan is also a better deal than individual unlimited messaging.)
