On the Verizon Plan, you will have a $20/month line access fee. On top of that you will have a monthly charge for the amount of data you choose to purchase. You can see the prices for the available data tiers at the following link.

Verizon Cell Phone Plans | Verizon Wireless

You can check to see if the phone you want to purchase unlocked would be compatible with the Verizon network at the following link.

Bring Your Own Phone or Device - BYOD | Verizon Wireless

There will be an initial activation charge for this new line on Verizon. It is either $20 or $40, not sure which as I have not activated a new line on Verizon for quite some time.

Monthly taxes/fees would run you somewhere between $5-$10/month.

Aside from the usual taxes, there is the monthly fee for the plan you choose, line access charge and charges associated with any optional services.

Which plan is best for you will depend upon your requirements...amount of mobile data needed per month is one key factor as is the number of devices that will be sharing that data allotment.

What phone model do you have now? You should also check to verify if the unlocked phone is compatible with the Verizon Wireless network. How much data do you think you will use per month?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
