Lack of clarity

I wonder if they should have just listed the specific circumstances which will trigger the new charge, rather than confusingly list 8-10 circumstances for which the fee will be waived. I've read the PhoneScoop article twice, and it is still not clear if we will incur the fee in our circumstance.

Regarding comments that we should all just enroll in auto-pay: Not me, I want the power to disburse the funds only when I allow it, never to let automated systems go into my accounts and extract the money. These online & automated systems are still too non-secure and non-trustworthy. They have a lot of work to do in terms of making these systems properly secure & trustworthy.

Huh? What is insecure about a secure system accessing your secure bank to withdraw the funds? All of that transaction history is encrypted.. If its being over billed you are worried about that why they invented credits.

Well, none of it is REALLY secure, but you can certainly say they are RELATIVELY secure. If you truly believe it is all REALLY secure, good luck to you.

The other point is, I should NOT be required to allow auto-pay to avoid a ridiculous $2 fee. If I choose to control the amounts & times at which money is withdrawn from my account, that is my right. As long as I'm disbursing the funds on-time, Verizon (or whoever) has no right nor reason to charge me $2 just to pay my bill.

If you want to allow all of your creditors free access to your accounts so they can go in and withdraw money from your account whenever THEY want to, you are indeed a more trusting soul than I.

Again, good luck with all that.

But, they cant go in whenevr they want. Thats the thing, its only once a month to collect that months payment. They dont go in whenever they feel to clean you out. And it is secure, or they wouldnt be allowed to use that.
