Not unless you signed up for one.

I would also point out that one of my added lines shows up online as an
entirely different plan, even though my monthly bill always includes it
correctly as an added line on my regular plan.

I added another line to my parent's account a few weeks ago. I
brought in a phone myself, just wanted a new sim/number and for the
rep to tag on the 9.99 per month to their family plan already. Well I
asked about the no contract thing since I had my own equipment, but
she said 2 year contracts only, even if there are no discounts. Well
that was no good, in the end she ended up calling Cingular cust
service and adding the line so I could get a 1 year contract. So in
the end the 4 line family plan has 3 lines ending a few months from
now and the new 4th line ending in a year.

Contract for a sim...what a pain.
