    Also, if you're currently receiving a military discount on each line, your discount will change to a percentage off the monthly service fee for your entire account.

    If you're eligible for a discount because of your employer's agreement with Verizon, but your unlimited plan wasn't eligible for the discount, that discount will be applied to your new shared data plan.

    *Exception: If you have a Just Kids plan and you remove all unlimited plans from your account, the Just Kids line will be suspended in 48 hours and will be disconnected within the next billing cycle.
