<p>For unlimited texting for one individual phone on AT&T's family plans, it costs $20. For all the lines, it costs $30. I've kinda talked him into possibly investing in the $30 plan, just because it's more practical and since I also have a brother going away for college. </p>
<p>I'm really digging the idea of doing a trial and seeing how many texts I send out - which I can totally monitor on purpose and make sure I'm only sending an innocent 5 a day. :D</p>
Do what I did! Find your parents' SSN(s), call up your provider pretending to be them and switch your plan. Most parents aren't technologically savvy enough to ever notice the $5-$10 change in their bill the following month.
<p>Definitely NOT! That would just shatter the trust that I have between the folks and myself. Besides, what parents AREN'T savvy when it comes to money (or the loss of it)? :) My dad pays the bill and he'll notice if there is a $30 increase in it. Thanks for the thought, however...lol</p>
