So I see the new Verizon Plan and am thinking about switching but I want to make sure I understand what I would be paying first. I am currently paying ~97 a month including the Edge payment. Say for example I went with the 6gb, that would be $60 a month, plus the $37 for the phone, and an additional $20 access so a total of $117?
On another note what is a line charge anyways? If you are already pay for a plan why are they then charging you again to access that plan, seams like double dipping to me....
A line charge is access. Then you pay for data. So, $20 + $60 plus phone payment. If you are on contract still then the line is $40. It's always been there. There have been several plan price reductions in the past year or so. To get what you have now you'd pay $20 + $45 for 3GB (since there is no 2GB plan anymore) $65 + phone payment. (plus taxes/fees)
No, you have a line charge for access to the network. You have a separate charge for data. There are lines that are data only, others that are voice/text only. Same thing happens with your power company: you pay a flat amount every month just to have a working connection at the pole to your house mast. Then you pay for however much power you consume.
