Welcome, mkclark1977 -- I'm sorry we're not saying hi on better terms!
First off, regarding your reimbursement for the balances on your Verizon account -- six months is much longer than this should take, and I'm so sorry you've been waiting so long! The Carrier Freedom team should be able to review your submission and see where the hang-up is here. You can reach out to them by dialing the following number and completing the prompts below:

As far as the situation with the equipment credit limit on your account -- that's a huge let-down, and I can't imagine what it felt like to overhear that. This is certainly not the way we should be speaking to one another, whether a customer is listening or not. I do know that an account's equipment credit line isn't something that can be altered like a sliding scale, but there's no reason for us to be rude in reminding one another of that policy. I'm truly sorry that you and your family went through that.
While we can't review your account from this public user forum, we'd definitely love to have you reach out to a team with account access to review device options for you before we lose your business. Whether you have five lines or one line, this isn't the experience we want for any customer. I'm not sure if you're active on social media at all, but our T-Force teams on Twitter and Facebook do have a platform to securely verify your account details and look into what options we might have for equipment for you, if reaching out online is your preference! I hope you'll give us a shot at providing a more caring experience. I will be sending you a private message to collect some details to provide feedback about this experience if you'd be so inclined -- you can take a peek in your inbox in a few moments. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what happened.
