For the past few years, my husband and I got on two different family cell plans. I am on with my mother, and he is on with his brother. We have different carriers, different plan benefits, different issues, both negative and positive. Before we decided to make the cell phone split, we looked long and hard at prepaid cell phone services, researching whether it would be worth it or not. In all honesty, those types of cell phone services always put a bad taste in my mouth because all I had heard was how spotty the signal was, how cheap the phone was and how limited the phone amenities were. Not to mention, it always seemed way more expensive than if we were just to get on a family plan somewhere, which is what we did.
