Can I use my tab to help buy a new phone for my wife and add the second new phone and new plan with a new number to my account yet keep my plan for my original old phone?

Your wife can have her own tab, her own phone and her own plan. You just add a line to your account. Your plan is it's own "line".  You can do it in-store or online (excluding Tab Plus)

If I understand correctly, yes. You can do whatever you want with the phone you get on tab. You can add as many lines as you want on an account without affecting the original line on the account.t

That's almost all correct! You can add up to a maximum of 5 lines under one account, if your credit class permits it. If you have a lower credit class, you may only be elligible for 1 line, until you are upgraded to the higher credit class. That can all be checked through your account :)

So will we get one account bill? And will they be linked so as to not use minutes between us?

That's right! If you have multiple lines under one account, you will only be issued 1 bill. You will also have unlimited family calling between the lines that are under the same account.
