    My understanding is if we combined the 2 accounts then go on this new pricing then we are no longer tied to a contract. But we will have to renew VIA the NEXT program to keep the pricing going forward or buy a device out right. (N5 in my case)
    When my buddy gets back I'll check his account. I'd be shocked if they did this since people on contract could swap and then cancel service.. Would be avoiding the ETF.

    Called CS. Nice woman switch me to the 10gb plan with 3 smartphones for $145/mo. Did not have to upgrade with NEXT. Lowered my bill by over $50/mo and added 4gb.

    My contracts still have the original end date though. So one cannot cancel service yet. Although we can use next or subsidized upgrades any time now. Using a subsidized contract upgrade makes that line go from $15 to $40 per month.

    Now I'm just waiting for the LG G3 to come out. Also helps that the 2 others my plan for care for upgrades or changing their phones for a long time. Wahoo!

    You are correct! After the changes took place last night on my account I saw it. Either way I'm saving a ton of money for each of us AND we can use NEXT if we had too. I don't plan on it. But the girlfriend might. She still has an HTC One X while I have the HTC One. I know she's been looking at the Moto X. ($23/month on next or just $329 out right)

    I was in a similar situation. I went from paying $170/mo for two smartphones and one iPad on a shared plan with 6 GB data, to paying $140/mo for the new 10 GB shared plan. Both my smartphones were still on 2-yr contracts, and I don't need to exchange them and get new phones on the NEXT plan. I can keep using them as long as I want and continue to be on this new plan.
    Although technically with this new plan I'm "off-contract", I still need to keep the AT&T service until the 2-yr contract anniversary date is up with each phone.

    Since one of my phones has been on AT&T service for more than 6 months, I have the ability to upgrade to a new phone using the NEXT program. I don't plan to do this, but if I did it effectively means AT&T has waived my early termination fees for my old phone and I can upgrade to a new phone under NEXT, and keep my existing phone. I don't have to turn my old phone in, and I could sell it on eBay or Swappa if I want. This situation is only available to me because I switched over to the new Shared Plan while under a 2-yr contract. So, I could actually make out on this deal pretty well. Who doesn't love AT&T?

    I got on this plan when I bought my new off contract phone last week as well. $160 for 4 phones with 10 GB of data is a good price.

    My understanding is if one of the lines wants the subsidized price on a new phone that one line would go from $15 a month to $40 a month so it would still be an option, just at a higher price. I hope this is correct.

    Yep. Shared data plans on AT&T and Verizon allow tethering.

    Tethering enabled was the main reason I switched to the new shared plan last year. Now I have 10gb and might cancel my home wifi.

    Anyone know how to measure home wifi use? Lol
