    Default Shared Plan Privacy

    I am looking into getting a shared plan, which would save me some money. However, I had a question - are all plan members able to view the phone call numbers and other information? Or is the information kept private and separate between plan members?

    Default Shared Plan Privacy

    In general, the person who is in charge of paying the bill will have access to all information.
    Now, if you're worried about inadvertently receiving calls & text messages from someone you're sharing data with, that's probably not going to happen.
    If the people you're sharing with all have iPhones, you can easily set up different Apple IDs and iCloud accounts to provide some privacy. Still, it does not keep the person in charge of paying the bill from seeing all incoming and outgoing numbers associated with calls and text messages because that information is readily available via the service provider. I hope that made sense.

    Thanks - so if I am the person who manages the account, then I will have all info, but other users won't.

    Exactly. The only person that can see bill specifics is the person paying it.

    We have 6 lines on the shared plan now, rolled over from old family plans.

    Each phone is still an individual line.
