I believe you may be right, I have been trying to signup for this plan for the last 2 months. I am a Florida resident with 2 lines, both of us over 55. Verizon just cannot seem to get this plan activated. I have spoken to (4) Verizon representatives Victor, Iris, Brenda, and Jennifer on Friday the 17th of August, still to no avail???
T mobile now offering 70 a month. I would have to purchase new phones but it may be worth it.
