[General] Family Share Plan

We currently have a family share plan with my in-laws that includes 5 cell phones. Now that my youngest daughter is old enough to have a cell phone that would make 6 cell phones. Is there a way for our family of 4 to leave my in-laws family share plan and have our own with our 4 phones leaving them with their plan and 2 phones without anyone having to pay a penalty?

I think you would have to pay ETA/Penalty

You can do what's called an "Assumption of Liability" on your three lines, which will start a new family share plan under your name. Those three lines would continue under contract, and you'd then be liable for all monthly charges. Then, you could add a new (fourth) line to your family share plan.

There are no fees involved. Just have the current account owner call 611 to authorize you to take over the three lines. You would then call the Assumption of Liability 888 number to accept the transfer and open a new account.
