Switching from a Business Account to a Personal Account

Let me start by saying I have been with Verizon since March of 2015 on a business account. Recently the business was dissolved, and we had to switch to personal accounts. Should have been a no brainer- I also was a manager on the account-we had over 6 lines and equipment. I was taking 2 of the lines to my personal account and both of those where eligible for upgrade and one was a 3g, so they shut it down 3days early. Well, I went into the store thinking I would come back out with personal service - and phones working - WRONG
First i had to sign up for credit-even though i was a manager on account they did not have my credentials - so I stayed in the store with rep and did all this stuff on the phone with some other rep on the other end-2 hours later still in store-the rep on the phone stated they would be in contact-had to call them tomorrow to see if I was approved- ok so I am approved-go back to the store and walk in talked to same rep I  had day before and she slips me a paper stating you now need to call this Transfer of Service line -WHAT?? -so I go out to my car and called that line-2 hours later talking with someone you could barely understand- ok ALL the lines are switched over-WHAT- no your to switch 2 lines only-Oh I'm so sorry let's try this again-another hour down- so I go back in store and rep that I have dealt with for the last couple of days says ok let's see what your approved for-Well I was approved for the basic $80.00 each line and no phone upgrade and no working phone because of the 3g stuff -I told them from the get go I could not afford any large plan and wanted no contracts -I wanted a plan for seniors- and I was debating prepaid service from the start. In store rep couldn't help getting anything lower it was being treated as a new customer not one that's been with them for years and slipped me that little piece of paper again that had a Loyalty Team number to call them- so I walked out again without phone -we have not shut business account down totally as of today so they could see that we had it-called the Loyalty line and explained to them the situation and that I have been with them since 2015 and I wanted this certain senior plan I had heard about. They were very nice and apologetic and stated they would forward this info to the Loyalty Team - well didn't I dial that number -guess not-she asked to give them a few days and someone would get back with me-
Keep in mind I still need to replace the 3g phone-so got online picked out Samsung Galaxy A13 phone-pretty basic phone for $189.99 -called the customer service number that was on that little piece of paper and asked if they could verify if a certain store had it in stock-she could, and they did-so off I go back to that store-walked in said I wanted to purchase this phone and no contract - Ok she said what's your number so I could tap and agree to what she had to do-she asked if I would like to take a seat while she looks things up-no thanks I will stand-well I don't know if all Verizon stores are like this one but I did not want to sit on a bar stool rubbing elbows-literally- with other customers on each side of me and trying to hear what my rep was saying or was that question coming from the other rep 2 feet away-so before I have my hands on the phone I had to go through signing things and one part of it was that it didn't come with a block and the cord was c to c- ok so how much is the block-$20.00-no thank you I will go to Wally world I get the phone and asked her to transfer things from the 3g phone-there is a charge for that $35.00 no thanks i will do it myself-so then by this time I am really pondering about the prepaid-so I ask if the phone is returnable if I don't do anything with it-yes she says but there is a $50.00 restocking fee- OMG -So you are all asking why not prepaid with other carriers-SIMPLE nothing else comes in at my location-but I still may go to my grandsons plan with AT&T and deal with signal problems if Verizon cannot get me the plan I am asking for

Thank you for your patience. I do sincerely apologize for the negative experience you endured at your local Verizon store.  I am here and want to help in any way I can.  You mentioned you may leave if you can not get the plan you want, please clarify, what plan you wanted.

Is there a "Good" customer service plan? I would be willing to pay extra for that one.
