Additionally, you’ll need information including the phone number of the line you’d like to remove, your Account PIN, and the name of the account owner.

However, you can suspend a line which is a much better option in situations where you might find yourself using the line later on but don’t want to continue paying on the line until then.

To suspend the line and keep it open without the line fees, just log in to your My Verizon account online and follow these steps:

  • Look under the “Devices” section
  • Find the phone line you’d like to suspend
  • Select “Suspend or reconnect” for that line

Additionally, you can suspend a line within the My Verizon app by following the steps below:

  • Open the My Verizon app
  • Choose “Menu” and then select “Devices” \
  • Look for the line you want to suspend
  • Select “Manage device” and then select “Controls”
  • Choose “Suspend device”

Verizon does not charge you to remove a line from your account, but that doesn’t mean you won’t incur fees when you remove the line.
