Verizon Implementing $30 Upgrade Fee Starting April 22
Verizon Wireless today said that beginning on April 22, all customers will need to pay a $30 fee when upgrading to new devices at the two-year discounted price. According to Verizon, the fee will help the company continue to offer services such as wireless workshops, expert consultations, and online educational tools. Verizon pointed out that customers trading in or recycling old devices can offset the fee with the value of their trade-in.
Just in case I had any doubt about leaving Verizon
how many of you are willing to do something about it???
Don't be surprised
It's revenue. The end.
Whores just like AT&T
Are they trying to punish us?
Are they serious?? Extra fees w/the horrible phones they offer??
Take your fee and shove it!
Of course they did, it's free money for doing, well, nothing.
Face it, they saw an opportunity and took it. Heck, the other carriers are doing it, and the customers are tolerating it. Why not, right? It's a sh!tload of money.
All that said, for the record I think it sucks.
It Finally Happened
But I guess there is always straight talk, boost, tracfone, net10, and all the other prepaid...
This type of thing bugs me.
It's like when the government forces the companies to implement something and allow them to charge a "fee" for it instead of being honest and calling it a tax.
Won't happen. Why? The average Joe consumer will walk into a retail store and see the deal for "free" or whatever and jump on it. Make that free ...
