    Like Fuse said, you would have been better off buying both phones and going on an even more plus plan. Let's figure you went unlmited talk-text-web for your family plan

    with contract
    179+529 for the phones
    99.99/month talk
    30+30/month for data
    20/month for text
    = $5004.00 + taxes for you total out of pocket expenses over your two year contract


    Without Contract
    529+529 for the phones
    139.99/month for everything plan related
    = $4417.76 + taxes for total out of pocket expenses over the same two years

    -> so to sum up, to save 350 bucks up front, you felt OK about paying nearly 600 bucks more for your entire 2-year package? The 600 bucks is a healthy savings and reason enough on its own, but you also don't have to deal with being under contract

    you could have opened to seperate plans each on two year contract, then called tmobile and ombined them into a family plan with no fees from google or tmobile. thats what i did

    Be VARY carefull about how you do this..... If you do this within 120 days of activation of the subsidized phones, you very well could be charged back for the full price of the phones. By combining them into a family plan within 120 days, you are breaching your contract with google

    not true. i talked to google before doing this. it has to be an even more plan not a plus plan, and you cant change your data

    tht would be news to me. talked to multiple people about this. Everyone said that if you switch over to a family plan you could be subject to a chargeback for the full price of the phone - if done within the first 120 days.

    Regardless, it is a rip-off to buy the subsidized phone when you consider total cost of ownership

    I am curious, I am not saying I dont believe you, I just want to make sure that I fully understand...

    You purchased two N1's from google by signing up for 2 individual N1 plans and then merged them into a family account? If so, did you do this within the first 120 days?

    Thanks

    No, I purchased one with a two year agreement and one at full price, then had them put on a family plan.
