Verizon Wireless plans to increase fees it charges customers when they activate a new line of service or upgrade to a new device. On Feb. 5, Verizon will increase the activation fee from $35 to $40 and increase the upgrade fee from $30 to $40. "These fees are not unique to Verizon and help offset costs associated with upgrades, activations, and other operational costs," said Verizon spokesperson David Samberg in an email to Phone Scoop. "Verizon Wireless is committed to the fees remaining competitive within the wireless industry." According to Verizon, it hasn't increased the activation fee in more than 10 years. It last increased the upgrade fee in 2012.

Yep, the costs were killing me, I dumped verizon and went prepaid with PagePlus, using the same network with no contracts and less than half the bill, it works for me.
Yep, don't compete to give your customers at least competitive rates and features, as was already mentioned, but instead increase fees. That sounds wonderful.
I love when their salespeople pull up my account with UNLIMITED DATA and know I'm NOT buying ANYTHING they are selling! I use the heck out of my data now and my teenage son uses 50gb a month!
In total agreement with Andy. They are so smug & pompous especially that Fran Shammo. No etiquette or decorum from that guy or Verizon towards their customers.....& with AT&T to pass them & to become largest cell carrier this year (currently at 125M...
