I can give my own experience on the first part of your question. My husband and I got our cell account about two years ago....the account is in his name and both our lines are included. We were each told to pick out a phone, from the many on the wall to choose from. So while we could have chosen the same one if we'd wanted (like perhaps some folks would choose to both get the cheapest one, since the others are more and some much more!), it isn't a "given" at all. In our case, we chose two different ones because I just needed a pretty standard phone, where-as hubby works an active outdoor type job and preferred one that is more durable.
