My wife's on that 9.99 right now, but I figure, for 6 users, as long as 2 people used it, I'm still paying about 7.99 a month for each, so its still a couple buck cheaper a month. And I could let a couple other people in on it, save one for when the stepson is old enough to have a phone, etc. So I'm thinking I'll switch to the family plan. I wouldn't be so sure about not getting the 7.99 back. Mine got cancelled because I cancelled the card it charges each month & forgot to switch my info. When I signed back up, they still honored the 7.99 without me having to ask or anything. Might've been a fluke, but I was happy.
