I have 2 phones under my account. One for me, one for hubby. I want to switch his phone to his name, so only he's responsible for his phone and I'm responsible for mine. Does he have to call in and change it over to his name or can I do that?

You would need to call first to give the permission for him to take over the account. He would then have 10 days to call and complete the transfer. A credit check will be done on him and the transfer would be complete assuming the credit check goes well enough for him to get an account. There is a fee of $25 on his first bill for the transfer of ownership. The tab on his line would be transferred to his account as well. If the credit check allows him to get an account but not the tab, the tab would be charged out on the final bill for that number on your account.

You will also no long have unlimited family calling if you are under 2 separate accounts

The new account (his) would have a different billing date/bill due date as well.
