    Adding a cheaper line and making that the primary, possible?

    So I signed up for Verizon Prepaid on my line using the $45/month 8+7 plan.

    If I decide to switch my son's line to Vz Prepaid using the 3GB/month plan, is it possible to make this Line 1, as it seems like making the $45/month plan Line 2 is cheaper with the family plan?

    Or is it too late? Can you decide after the fact, which phone is line 1?

    $45/month (7+8 plan) as line 1, 3GB as Line2 ($5 prepay off, $10 family plan off,) would be $70/month

    If I can add the 3GB and make it line 1, then it would be: $35 + $30=$65

    I haven’t personally tried this, but according to the FAQ, you can transfer the Account Owner role to another line on the account.

    Seems like that may work. Or signing up for service on the other line and then merging the accounts.

    You could also sign up his line separately and then merge your line into his line. That would make his the primary and yours the secondary.

    Why would this work?
    As a USA citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a racist, hypersensitive, crass, immoral psychopathic traitor, narcissist liar committing High Treason against the USA.

    It works Ive done it. Make the cheapest line the 1st one. The only problem is if you have the old 4 lines for $100 promotion. If you try to juggle lines then you lose the grandfathered deal.
