That's a great question. This program is on a Device Payment plan, which means there is no activation fee.

DO you mean upgrade fee?
Or line access fee?
The line access fee if you are on More Everything or Verizon plan is discounted if you use the Device payment plan to buy the iPhone (this includes the Apple plan).
If you are not on these plans you do not get a discount and your line fee is the same.
