    More Everything offers discounts for fully paid devices, not just EDGE.
    $15 per line for 4GB and less plans.
    $25 per line for 6GB and more plans.

    It actually cheaper to have 4 lines on the 6/8/10GB plans than the 4GB plan.

    Also there are tons of corporate discounts. Chances are, if you work for a national company there’s a discount.

    I just switched after learning I can get 15% off based on where I work.
    Was looking at MVNOs to get LTE support and add a 4th line and Verizon ended up being cheaper with more data.

    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.
