If you're willing to jump to 3x Magenta Max. Just have your wife sign up for it... that's how you get around the 3 months, by changing the SSN/account holder. Jumping through hoops is the only way to get a cheap phone + plan. It's a chore. I used to use the old VZW unlimited grandfathered line as my home/portable internet. After like 18 months or so they sent me a letter saying they could no longer serve me as a customer and I had 30 days to get off their network! Years later, I tried to sign up to VZW again at a store. The system would error everytime that tried to put in my SSN and details. The rep didn't know why lol.
