True Cost of by the gig plan

I would want 2 lines by the gb on the same plan. From what i understand its $14 per line per gig... But its a shared 1gb... So thats $28 total for the 2 lines... If we collectivly go over that 1gb its another $14 for each additional gb.

 

If the first gb is shared and all additional gbs are shared... Would it be better to have 2 seperate accounts with 1 line each so that each line gets its own 1gb to start rather then sharing it in the account with 2 lines?

 

What taxes and fees are the average per phone on a billing cycle?

    Can anyone provide an estimate of the additional fees and taxes that are added per phone line each month. We are light users and looking at 2 lines both style 4s, by the gig.

    when i had it i had the unlimited plan and the taxes were under 2.00 a month

    what i would be curious about if you choose the by the gig plan do they keep charging you for each gig you use after 3 gigs allowing you to rack up a huge phone bill

    Hi!   Just a little clarification. If you have one phone by the Gig you get 1 Gig. If you go over that 1 Gig you will be charged for another. If you have 2 phones you get 2 Gigs (shared) so if say one phone uses 1.5 Gig and the other uses only .5 there will be no added charge for another Gig.  In the 2 phone scenario, if you go over the 2 shared Gigs, we will charge for one more. That one will also be shared between the 2 phones. 

     

    Hope that  helps!

     

    Regards,

    Julia R.
