    You can do what is called an assumption of liability, Which basically will release her line to her therefore removing it from your plan and onto a plan of her own. However this is something that she will have to agree to. So if she is playing hard-ball with you then this probably isnt an option. Otherwise I would reccommend putting a basic phone on her line to just sit there for 9.99 per month until the contract runs out. This will help you for multiple reasons. Number one being the phone that she refuses to give back will not be active. Number two it will save you money because when you add the basic phone you can drop all her features (insurance and data etc.)

    This is very good advice. You need to get her out of the loop ASAP.

    But if she refuses to give it back. That's could be claimed as stolen?? Right? Wouldn't she have to physically get another phone for the 9.99 plan? She will not cooperate unfortunately. Lol

    I cant predict the results if you go to the police and tell them she stole the phone from you but from a verizon stand-point the options I proposed to you would be about it. I dont understand what you mean about "physically getting another phone for the 9.99 plan"...

    She doesn't have to cooperate. You are the account holder - right? If so just get a used/cheap basic verizon phone and go to a store and get them to activate it with the number she has been using. Her phone will cease to operate. You do have the account setup so only you can make changes to it - right? If not, set that up with Verizon immediately.

    That is an excellent point..if she is an authorized user on your account the FIRST thing you need to do is remove her from that.

    I see what youre saying...yeah you could do that but you would have to pay a deductible. I guess it depends on what youre trying to accomplish...if you want to keep the line and want the phone back then I guess that would be the way to go. I thought you just didnt want the line anymore and were looking for the cheapest way out.

    Tell verizon to turn the phone off . Pay the 9.99 a month till you can get rid of the line otherwise she might just leave you with one hell of a bill. Also change the locks and park your car where you can see it.

    I would let her know that it's a stolen phone more than $250, which is a felony in most states. That said, the least confrontational way is simply suspending her line and continuing to pay $9.99 per month.

    Did you install one of those apps that locate lost phones by generating loud obnoxious noises/sirens? There are also apps that can remotely record audio/video from lost phones, or track movement of that phone via its GPS.
    Or the really neat remote lock and wipe option.
    I doubt she'll want to carry that kind of phone around with her ;)
    Just saying...
