no I can pretty much guarantee that's not accurate. Apple didn't subsidize my two iPhone x that transferred over nor the replacements form my kids crushed ones not eligible for upgrade yet they are still attempting to charge the $20 fee on all 4 lines.
Aha, so now we know that your kids ARE legitimately being charged the extra amount. If they are "not eligible for upgrade yet" that is because they are still in a contract.
So now we have the story on 2 of them, and they are indeed rightfully being charged the extra amounts...
So what is going on with the other two?
And the email that you had to accept for it to move from a business to a personal account had this info in it.
Again, this is the Terms and Conditions that I recommended you pay attention to prior to accepting. When you accepted that in email it was a done deal and the line moved over to a personal account as you just agreed to those Terms and Conditions, assuming liability.....
Actually lukevinyl, who doesn't work for Verizon, I read through the terms
and conditions prior to accepting. It did NOT have the $20 minimum service
fee information in it. This omission is the reason for my entire issue.

Hello, MELCAM34. I want to make sure you have a clear understanding of the bill and the service you pay for. Are you referring to the $20.00 line access fee per line or a different charge?

I'm so sorry for any and all inconvenience with regard to the pricing plans. We don't want to lose you and would like you to stay in the Verizon Wireless family. Our plans have a monthly charge for the plan and a monthly charge for the line. We do have different pricing for the Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited plans, check them out here: Unlimited Data Plans for Talk & Text | Verizon Wireless
Each line has a charge, but there is no charge for the plan. Please keep in mind that you can change plans whenever you want, at no cost. How does this sound?

I am having the exact same issue. I transferred from my business plan earlier this month and discussed the pricing, what I believed to be IN DETAIL with the representative. I received my first bill last week and see this surprise $20 charge, which was not disclosed. I don't understand why I'd continue to pay Verizon's exorbitant prices when I can just pay the termination fee and go to a more reasonably priced carrier without mystery charges.
Well it isn't a mystery charge.
There IS a reason for it which can be verified and confirmed like any other specific details online.... It specifically states in the FAQ's:
"Monthly line access charges for smartphones on the new Verizon Plan differ based on if you received a 2-year contract discount on the phone when you bought it:
•Si compraste el teléfono a un precio con descuento y firmaste un contrato de 2 años, el cargo por acceso mensual por línea es de $40 hasta el vencimiento del contrato del dispositivo.
•Todos los teléfonos que no estén en un contrato de 2 años (por ej., comprado con pago de dispositivo, comprado al precio total, etc.), tienen un cargo por acceso mensual por línea de $20.
Te puedes cambiar al nuevo Plan Verizon en cualquier momento, pero los cargos de acceso mensual por línea de todos los dispositivos con contratos por 2 años seguirán siendo de $40 hasta el vencimiento del contrato de cada dispositivo. Once each device contract expires, the monthly line access charge will automatically drop to $20."
This was taken from The new Verizon Plan FAQs | Verizon Wireless in the section that states "Why do some smartphones have different monthly line access charges on the new Verizon Plan?"
You CAN go to another carrier but it isn't a mystery charge and is listed on the site as such.... This is just what I found right off the bat when I looked at the frequently asked questions but is likely listed other places as well....
I'm sorry you expected the rep to not miss anything but this naturally happens as humans are not perfect creatures which is why it always makes good sense to do a bit of research yourself before expecting anything to be exactly as expected "word of mouth"....
This could happen at any provider and potentially anytime you rely on what a rep told you whether wireless service or elsewhere, and so while you absolutely can go to another carrier-- the potential for this to occur is just as possible as with VZW if you aren't doing the research yourself....
While I'm sure it made your day, lukevinyl, to come here and give your rather lengthy and unsolicited opinion, you did not take part in my initial coverage and plan research, nor my discussion with the Verizon representative. I did not post on here to get an unhelpful response from you, but rather to further discuss with Verizon, as it seemed they were willing to assist the other user with the same issue. Have a glorious evening!
