Yes, you can have more than 1 number under your account.

Your bf can sign up for one number and then also open a second line under the same account. He will be the owner of both accounts and will be responsible for paying for both accounts

Yes.

Since it is all under the same account number you can send in one lump-sum payment>

Note that this is all pending a credit check on your BF when he signs up for an account.

Otherwise I recommend prepaid for you guys

I'm going to be the voice of what if here and recommend that you not do this. You're under 18 and he is 19 and I'm sure that you're the kittens mittens and he is the bees knees but you two are so young and things can change in an instant. You may find it better if you could rely that no matter what happens at least one of you has a phone that works. Maybe I'm wrong and th e two of you are financially secure. Great but imagine if you find he wants to go build a hive with another queen or you find your mittens in someone else litter box?

Just my 2c

Makes the beginning of a good Judge Judy episode where roaming will have an entirely new meaning...

The only safe way to do it is to pay up front for the phones. You are then on the hook only for a month's service... actually HE is on the hook but he can cancel your service anytime as owner of the account.

It's really none of anyone's business and no one here should talk about other community members relationships and be giving them unsolicited relationship advice, IMO. You wouldn't want anyone doing the same.

Actually a bank rep had that same conversation with me when I was younger and wanted to get a joint checking account. She did say it was none of her business and Tbh it wasn't but she did go over some scenarios that could happen. And like I said I can be wrong. But whatever.

I would sooner assume a 19 year old doesn't have enough credit to even get two phones on one account right away. He may have to do deposits on both or one line and wait for a second. That is if he is approved for any at all.

Actually I've seen lots of younger folks get approved (but sometimes with spending cap). It's probably because they have little to no phone history and the company will take the risk.
