You kinda can make your number, but with a choice of restricted first 3 digit (area+3dig) and as long as the last 4 is available, plus you get charged an extra $10 for doing it. I added a number today so I saw the feature and figured I'd skip it and use the auto assign one.

You WILL be billed for 2 lines.

No as long as you're on the same account it'll be on the same bill, but you're going to have 2 seperate lines with seperate plans, they got rid of the plan sharing feature.

I used the auto assign, which just gives you a random number.
