Line access charge is the charge for having a smartphone activated on a line, not the initial activation charge.  You pay a line charge $40 plus a fee for the data allotment you decided on, and then if you have a device payment agreement, that is added to the overall bill.

No, line access charges are EVERY month.  Did you add this line as a contract line or Device Payment Device?  No contract plans have a $20 access fee.  Maybe you were looking at another line on your account that is under contract.

Did you pay full retail, reduced contract price, or monthly device payments?  How much data do you have on your account ?  

IF you bought full retail, you must ask for month to month discount, if there are no contracts on that line to get $15 or $25 discount

if it is contract buy the access is $40/month plus a $40 upgrade fee

if it is payment plan then access will be $15 or $25

keep in mind with the discount options above, it will show up on the bill as $40 with a $15 or $25 discount shown somewhere else. 

IF it is a new line, there is a $40 new line charge One time.
