    Right now Iam on a family plan with metropcs. Me , my dad , mom and sister. ( all non smartphones ) We pay 35 dollars a month. My question is that i want to switch my current nonsmartphone and buy the lg optumus M. How much per month Do i have to pay if i get that phone ? Will the 35 dollars turn into 50 dollars ? or will the 50 dollars get added into the 35 dollars ? and is it just for my phone only ? or will it affect all our family ?

    Please answer (sorry i have bad english )

    Idk for sure but it will probally be 50 minus 5 because of the family plan. 45$ a month on your phone

    OK I'll explain you can have any kind of phone on the family plan, including the optimus. The discount is 5$ off per line. So 20$ is taken off each month from your bill. Your phones fees will go up from 35 to 50. But the discount will stay the same. Hope this helps.

    Well it will be your total phone bill regular cost 35+35+35+50 subtracted by 20 (5 off per line) so 135 will be your total bill and for just you it will be 45. K?

    Ok i think that there might still be some confusion or at least on my part.

    Unless i'm mistaken, The non-smartphone plans are $40 dollars minus the $5 family plan discount only then equaling $35...

    It seems like it should be $40+$40+$40+$50 minus $20 family option =$150
