    I read on VZW site that they will be implementing a small business plan on May 17th. I currently have 6 lines, ergo 2 plans and wanted to know if this option would enable me to save some money.
    Currently, we are setup like this:

    Nationwide Select Family Share Primary 700 :$90.
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    Subtotal :$130 + tax

    Nationwide Select 450 :$59.99
    BIS :$29.99
    Subtotal :$90 + tax

    Total :$220 + tax

    From what I gather if we were setup as a small business it would look like this:

    Nationwide for Business Plans 900 :$79.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    additional line :$ 9.99
    BIS :$29.99
    Total :$160 + tax

    Is this right? Signing up for this is going to save me $60 + tax a month?
    I have the distinct feeling that I am missing something.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    business share plans are setup differently than a family share.

    Going to have to wait until the 17th.

    Sorry, it won't work in your case. If you have any of the plans that are 3,000 minutes shared or less, then you're only able to have a maximum of 5 lines on the share plan. 4,000 minutes has a max of 8 lines. 6,000 minutes has a max of 10... And it goes up from there.

    Edit: If this is the same thing you were talking about, the Nationwide Small Business SharePlans..

    Also to note, on the regular Nationwide Business plans, not the new small business plans, the 900 minute basic plan is $64.99 and the select is $84.99. But secondary lines are the same price $64.99 or $84.99. How it works isn't like a normal family share, nor a normal single line plan. Each line that pays $64.99 is entitled to 900 anytime minutes. Lets say at the end of the month one of your lines used 1000 minutes, but your other line used only 700... Well the line that only used 700 minutes would be able to give its left over minutes to the other line that went over, therefore, there would be no overages for that month....

    The new small business share plans are exactly like the regular family share plans that are available now, but the more minutes you purchase, the more lines you're able to have ( up to 50 shared lines ).
