Am I doubling up on my charges with an old plan?

Was taking a look at my current billing and the current plans that are offered by AT&T. I think I may be paying more by keeping an older plan than if I switch to one of the newer plans. 

My current bill is this:

4 lines. Each line is being charged $35/month. Two phones say the charge is for "Access for iPhone 5G with VVM". The other two phones say it is for "Access for iPhone 4G LTE with VVM". 

The other big charge on the bill is an older plan we have had for a handful of years now. It is "AT&T Unlimited &More(SM) Premium Multi Line" which is $112/month and we get a $33.60 credit each month for having 4 lines on the plan.  So a net charge of $78.40 before taxes.

I want to make sure I am looking at the current unlimited plans correctly. It seems I can move each phone line over to the Unlimited Starter Plan at $35/month and get rid of the AT&T Unlimited & More plan, essentially eliminating the $78.40 charge each month.

Am I interpreting this correctly?

Also, is the $8.99/month insurance and protection worth paying? Three of the lines have this and we have never used it in all the years we have had AT&T. 

Any advice or guidance is appreciated.

Yes, you are interpreting that correctly but that $35 per line price requires you have paperless billing and autopay. You will also lose HBO Max which your current plan provides. As for insurance, personally I would never buy it. I don’t think it’s worth it but I think you kind of answered your own question if you’ve never used the insurance in all the years you’ve had it.

Paperless billing and autopay is no problem. I think we are paying for HBO Max anyway with a separate account. So if we lose that, not too worried. 

I was thinking about moving our lines over to something like Visible, but if I can eliminate that extra $78.40 per month, I would be fine with staying on the account we have now with AT&T. It would get the monthly cost down to something comparable to Visible, but I would rather pay the little bit extra a month to stay on AT&T.
