    That's basically it. I want to move my personal phone to my business account or even spin it off to its own separate account, if necessary and want to keep unlimited data. Does anyone know of there is any way of doing this now? I have called a couple of times and went to a store, so far I'm hitting a wall.

    Thanks!

    To be clear, you have unlimited on your personal line, but not your business line?

    People used to sell their unlimited lines on ebay. The buyer had to sign an agreement to take over the line.

    However, I believe they have since closed this loophole.

    If they haven't, it would mean that your business would have to sign such an agreement to make it your business line.

    I'm not sure if/how that would work if you transferred the line to yourself. Have you inquired about simply changing your number?

    I do have unlimited on my personal and do not have unlimited on my business account. My personal is currently on a family plan with 3 unlimited lines. They are telling me I can not spin it out by itself or transfer it to my business account, without losing unlimited. I was hoping that someone might know a way of doing it. One gentleman from verizon, told me I could have spun it off to an account on its own, but they apparently took that ability away Jan 1 this year. :(

    Yeah, like I said, they're working on closing up any and every loophole they can to usher people off of unlimited. There are very few tactics left that still work, if any.

    Assumption of Liability loophole has been closed. If you move to a different account, you must change to the new plan

    Just thinking out loud here, but what about transferring your business phone to your personal account? In other words, adding a new line to your personal account for the business phone?

    Thanks for the info!!

    That's a good idea on moving the business to personal. How many lines can you have on an account?
