Just playing around in My T-Mobile pages and noticed under upgrade it looks like I can now add up to 10 lines to a family plan. I believe in the past, because I already have 5, I would get a message stating I was at the max. So is this a glitch or can you really get more than 5 lines now?
when u say "under upgrade" thats not adding a line tho, thats just doing a phone upgrade
To clarify, when you go into upgrade where it asks you whose line you want to upgrade, below it shows all the lines on the left side and to the right it says "OR" and a button to add a line. When I pick add a line, it appears to allow me to add up to 5 lines.
I went all the way to the final check out screen adding a 6th line and never did it prevent me. However I didn't go to the final step of actually ordering it. So who knows.
I believe it actually depends on your credit (or whatever credit rating system they use). I've heard of people getting offered 8-10 lines before. I have five myself but one is a hotspot, so I actually have one left)

when i was told this several years ago, i was ecstatic. so i tried
to just ADD-A-LINE($10). agent(s) told me it's basically having
two family plans, does not mean having 10-lines under one acct.
if you're creditworthy, you'd be entitled to 2 (5-line) family plan.
and you would have two different account numbers of course.
just recently i asked agent(s) if i can do change of responsibility
on two lines to a family member, hoping that all account features
plan, cheap data could just transfer to family member. they told
me that with the change, new owner must choose from "current"
plans and can't transfer/takeover old plan. i was deflated when
they told me the fine print.
I wish we could break through this artificial ceiling imposed on us as its just not fair to large families of 6 or more like mine. All of the vendors do this so they have colluded IMO. I should have been able to add my youngest son (6th line) for $5 on the value plan.
