Why is it when I click on a simply share plan, with SHAREABLE DATA, can I not add a 2nd device without adding said device PLUS another plan? Isn't the whole point of a FAMILY PLAN to be able to share the data and have multiple devices? Is everything just one single plan now for each phone?

The shareable data on the Simple Share plans are each individual plan on the account contributing to the pool of data with the Family Plan portion being the Family Discount where you save $7.50 per line with 2 lines on the account, $10/line with 3 and $15/line with 4+. 

 

The Simple Share plans are more designed for if have multiple people on the account and some lines will use very little data and others could be using a fair amount and want the additional pooled data at full speed and with the hotspot available vs the Peace of Mind plans where everyone has their own data and once hit the threshold slows down and hotspot is disabled without adding a Fast Pass.

 

The only plans that can add another device to without a monthly plan charge would be the Peace of Mind Connect plans but there would be limited to only watches and tablets being able to share the data associated with the plan with no additional monthly charges.

Thanks guys.....its just shocking to me that since my last contract (rogers), getting two new $0 phones on a 2-year contract is now approaching $300 when it used to be well under $200.

Shared plans are for the data part only. You can't add another phone with just data. The other phone has to have a phone number (i.e. a voice/text plan). You can't share a voice/text plan because you can't share a phone number.
