I was actually looking forward to shared data plans in hopes that maybe, just maybe it would simplify my life (wow, stupid I know).

These plans are so ridiculous. The fact that AT&T charges $30 a month for "dumb phones" who consume no data at all is pathetic.

I have an account with 5 lines - three smartphones and two dumb phones. If I were to switch to the shared 4 GB, my bill would go up at least $70 from where I'm at now.

It looks like I'll be exploring other options for my cell provider. It may just be time to look closer at Sprint.

that price does include the shared data

I realize that, but most dumb phones provide no reason to even want to access data and when they do consume very little. To charge $30 a month for those phones and only $10 more (sometimes even less than that) for a phone that consumes much more seems a bit odd.
