I'd love to see some ultra low end on account plans from you guys, to allow families to put kids/low usage teens onto account plans, without costing a fortune.

Any chance of seeing something like this? Ideally a $10/month plan but even a on account version of the $19/combo would be good for the teens.

Or some sort of family bundle where we could have 4-5 numbers with a shared pool of minutes/data/txts etc.

You guys are smart, I'm sure you can come up with something here :-)

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

isn't there a minimum cost to servicing a customer, which is why we are unlikely (not saying never) to see low cost on account plans?

what sort of bundle would be viable for a $10 monthly plan in terms of data/text/minutes?

why not just use auto topup and set to, say, $10 per month

Effect is roughly the same as being on account, but a bit better because if the kids want to spend more (more mins, add more data etc) they can also topup with their own money
