No Family Values?

does anyone know if helio plans on adding helio family plans for the "all access"... I know they added unlimited calling just recently...so that shows me some progress and growth..
how does the future of helio honestly look?
their ocean is tempting me to bypass sprint and deal with the over-priced middle man... known as helio

any good discounts for new customers??

thanks

Helio is built for age ranges of 18-23 year olds. Not a lot of families in that age range. Helio is not overpriced when you add up all the unlimited stuff they put in their all-in plans. You could add 2 $65-500 minute plans and beat a family plan of two lines from most companies with all the data. Research it if you believe I am lying. Helios future looks bright they are marketing more and getting their name out there. They are also backed by Earthlink and SK Telecom, which is big bucks. Unlike Ampd, who is in trouble. They also have a great nationwide coverage area, with an amazing international calling plan, which is free to have and they just charge by the minute as low as $0.10 a minute up to $5.00 depending on what country you call.

features? ok, yeah. I don't think making all access should be that difficult, reguardless who they may be marketing...
actually I nevermind the family plan thing... I just wish they would let me have two phones on one contract... to me that is as stupid as matt millen.

You can have as many lines as you want under your name that will come on your bill together. Sure, you are only allowed to have 5 lines on one account, but the simple way around that is to create a sub-account with another 5 lines. If you want another please just create a new sub-account. It's not a big deal!! Just because Helio doesn't have any family share plans for $10 per line on their all in memberships, does not mean that they aren't any cheaper. If you look into detail, if you are to get 2 lines with Helio, it would still be cheaper than doing a family share plan with the competitor, I hope everyone understands that data (txt, pix, flix, web, etc.) costs per feature per phone with these other companies that can equate up to $45 pe...

i think the best thing so far with the plans has been the family option with the all in. a lot of people are coming back for it and are pleased with it...u have no idea how many lines we've put out this past week and a half or how many people are coming back simply for the family plans
