line access fee is not mentioned on Costco paperwork. Only states keep current rate plan. Nothing states that line access fee varies depending on which option is chosen. Found out it increased after I reviewed my account on line since I haven't even gotten first billing yet.
As I have pointed out multiple times, the line access fee DOES NOT VARY. It is ALWAYS $40 for a smartphone on More Everything. What varies is your eligibility for discounts which does not affect the rate of your plan OR line access fee. It is a discount which is taken off AFTER you are billed your rate. You are paying the same rate whether or not you are under a contract on the More Everything plan. You simply are no longer eligible for an out of contract discount.
