I have 4 Verizon Mobile lines on my account, My son transferred his line to an account under his name as he also signed for an account for FIOS. My new bill after the transfer had a Federal Universal Service Charge for $24.10. Verizon informed me that this is a federal charge when you transfer a mobile line. This Federal Universal Service Charge was usually around $0.51 on each monthly bill.. Be aware as you transfer a line. Verizon had no explanation on the bill just the increased charge amount so I had to call figuring it was a billing error. Government gets you at every turn.
