Transferring my wife's line to my plan


My new wife is currently on her mom's family plan and I'd like to move her over to mine. Is that possible to do with no problem? or do I need her mom to take her off her plan first so I can bring her over to mine?

You need to do an Assumption of Liability (AOL).  Information is in this link:

My Verizon FAQs | Verizon Wireless

"In order to perform an Assumption of Liability, all of the following requirements must be met:

Current Account Owner

  • You must ensure that the balance on the account you want to transfer is current. You'll continue to be responsible for account charges until the transfer has been completed.
  • If the line you're transferring is the primary line on a Family SharePlan® or the only secondary line on a Family SharePlan, the remaining line(s) must be placed on eligible calling plans prior to processing the account transfer. Please contact Customer Service at (800) 922-0204 for assistance.
  • You must contact Customer Service at (800) 922-0204 to authorize the account transfer and provide the name of the person who will be taking over the account.

New Account Owner (person taking over responsibility for the account)

  • You must read and agree to the Verizon Wireless Customer Agreement Terms and Conditionsprior to assuming responsibility for the account.
  • If the line you're taking over is being added to an existing Verizon Wireless account, your account must be current.
  • If you agree to the Customer Agreement Terms and Conditions and up to a 1-year contract term, you must contact the Assumption of Liability Department at (888) 832-4540. A representative will assist you with completing the AOL request.

    Note: Your service assumption will be subject to a credit check. You may be required to switch to current pricing and promotions. A security deposit may also be required."
