did this happen, because on Friday a rep told me that it is still going on and that they don't know the end date

Might wanna confirm with another rep, but I guess itís possible.

Thanks @myi I was able to get it this time around.

So I now have 2 paid lines and 4 free lines.
Keep it coming.. 2 Paid and 6 free.
 Do you pay the taxes on the line?

 Even after this 3rd free line. It's just not enough of a reason to stay on my plan with 8 lines.

  I have 10 lines after the 2 free added ones.
 And this would be number 11 with three free.
 
 Even if I would change SOC codes to the 4 for 120$ and each addntl $20 I would still need to pay taxes on the free lines and the 4. So we're talking about $160+.

 If there was a 4th line free then it might be worth it to hang in for a year with two gig on my plan, and wait till I can cancel 4 lines.

$120+ Tax around $140 for 8 lines unlmtd is pretty good.

   To bad I never collected, or rather never managed the account until now.

 I think my best move is the 1st responders plan for $20 a line unlmtd and I'll have to verify each year which is a pita.

Confirmed. I added a 7th line online. Chat confirmed the line would be free under today's free line promo.

HT: @Yo ssi
so 6 free and 2 paid. Hook me up!  :)
 Good for you.

Yes, I do pay minimal taxes on those lines. When I saw this thread bumped I thought there were new free lines promotions out. There was one recently for existing customers, but it required you to add a paid line...

Just 5 free (and 2 paid), not 6. I did call the second time in 2020 when they had the line on us promo, but they told me (erroneously) that it ended. Had I got that one it would be 2+6.

Whoa! Confirmed. End of the quarter needing to boost the numbers. This seems to stack with an iPhone SE on us for porting in a number, might be enough to reel me in for another free line.

Still have till the end of the month to make my decision if I should go away from my grandfathered plan.

 It will irk me to no end if every second day there's another free line promo and I'm stuck on a 1st responder plan with no discounts or promos, no free phone's...

Tough decision.

 But even should I stay, I would need to pay taxes on 3 free lines and hang in with 2gb per line. And hope they can change my SOC code to NAFFTU4 in a years time! Lots of hope which I'm not sure is worth it.

Like meantioned before, paying $50, $30, then $10 addntl.

 So $140 plus taxes, and 3 free would be $165 plus taxes, come out to $190 after taxes and one line has unlmtd with another $15 per month at $205.

$205x12 = $2460

 And then hope to go for 4 for 120 plus $20 at $160 tops after tax and addntl $15 for the free lines, and still be eligible for all free plans and phones.
 Seems it's going to come out a few dollars more for this plan with 5 paid and 3 free after taxes and all, at around $175.
  Or dump this whole plan to go to a 1st responders plan for 8 for $160 including taxes and all.

Only $540 of a difference in a years time.
 But going a year with 2gb is a killer. Even though I call every month for an increase and an adjustment on my account.

 What your guys take? What would you do?

Is there anybody that doesn't need their free line and would be willing to take one out for me, together with one of the free / reduced price options ?  Willing to pay.

Not sure I followed everything you wrote, but 2gb would kill it for me.

1st responder plan

Does Hatzalah or whatever organization you're with have an exception? Based on this page it's only for government based first responders, with potential exceptions made for non-profit volunteer first responder organizations.

If you can trade in a device (e.g. iPhone 8) and port in an AT&T/Verizon line (can buy one on eBay) you might be eligible for a free iPhone 12 ($830 off after monthly credits).

If the device is for screen time then probably the one with the biggest display and/or most durable (though a case would solve that).

DROPR, Iím not sure youíll be promo-eligible when you exchange in a month, itís certainly risky.

Yes. For me it was. I went for a larger screen, but we were talking freephone via statement credits for adding an additional line for 24 months.
