Remove a line and price per line goes up?

I had four lines on my unlimited bill that I paid $45.00 a line for. Today I removed one of the lines that I no longer need thinking I would be saving $45.00 a month, yeah!! Oh no. The price per line jumped from $45.00 to $55.00 so by removing a line I am only saving $15.00? I thought that it was $45.00 per line access no matter how many lines you had. Makes no since. My contract is up in two months and I beleive I will be shopping for another carrier.

The more lines on the account, the less you pay per line, so by removing a line, the price per line went up.

This is not news. This has been the way ever since they re-introduced unlimited data.

The price per line drops for each line you add up to 5 lines.

Make sure you read the fine print on the other carriers as they have the same policy with the cost per line being lower when you have more lines.

Good luck with that, other carrier unlimited plans do the same. Where do you think Verizon took the idea from?

heidi67401, the last thing we would ever want if for you to leave the Verizon family. As a consumer, I know how vital it is for you to know how the cost of your plans is affected by the number of lines you have.  

This link provides the cost of the unlimited plans we offer based on the number of lines you select.
