ATT MVNO Family Share Plans Compared

     Here we find that the selection of ATT MVNO family mobile share plans is rather limited.  In some cases you’ll find it is better to simply sign up for multiple single line ATT MVNO plans rather than one of these family plans.  You also may surprisingly find that the ATT Family Share plan is your best option.  Some MVNO’s such as NET10 really need to rethink their pricing strategy as they offer virtually no benefit to a family of 4 over the ATT plan as they cost $5 more per month!  On top of that you may find your data temporarily disconnected from time to time as AT&T’s post paid customers often get preference for use with their data pipelines over their MVNO’s, particularly in times of heavy network traffic.  Should you really be paying more for that experience?  With all that out of the way, the chart below lists in some cases the only plans offered for 2-4 lines, or what I have judged to be the best value offered by that particular MVNO.
ATTENTION:  If you are an iPhone user you may have trouble getting data and MMS working with many of these MVNOs. Please read this post for more information.

***=denotes maximum price you’ll pay.  PureTalk USA family plans do not include traditional set minutes per month but rather flexible minutes.  You set the maximum amount you’d like to pay per month and the maximum amount of minutes you think you need.  If you use less minutes, your bill may be up to $20 less than whats denoted at each price point in the table.

H2O is 4G LTE not HSPA+.

Cricket just upped the 3 line plan for $90 to 3 GB each. 4 or 5 lines on the 3 GB plan is $100. May as well add that 5th phone if you add a 4th, doesn’t cost any more. Up each plan to $40 each and you get 8 GB per line.
