    But what if it's the most widely dispersed, fastest flowing rain around? You'll get out there and do your rain dance, that's what.
    It's really not a huge deal. Always pay your bill on time (autopay) or use a checking account.

    And they'll credit you $6 if you call regarding the outages. It's not $60, but whatever.

    I already use the ACH option and I won't suffer worse coverage from other carriers - have experienced that. Being an optimist and in system engineering in an unrelated tech field, I believe that they will get the 4G bugs taken care of. Still annoying in the meantime, though.

    According to an internal document obtained by Droid-Life, Verizon Wireless plans to star charging customers an additional $2 “convenience fee” for paying their cellphone bill whether online and/or through the phone.















    The $2.00 fee doesn’t start until January 15th and according to Verizon Wireless, customers will be warned before the fee is assessed and given other payment options to avoid the $2.00 charge. If you don’t want to pay it you can use these other payment channels:
    • ACH (electronic check)
    • Pre-enrollment APO (Autopay)
    • Online from customer’s home banking service provider (online bill pay through your bank)
    • In-store using My Verizon Express, BPK or a store representative
    • VZW gift card, rebate card and friends and family referral rewards card
    • Paper checks and money orders mailed to Verizon Wireless remit address via USPS

    How are all you taking this news? Is $2 a month — $24 a year — a small price to pay for good coverage and 4G LTE (when it’s working)
    . Or will this be the final straw sending you to more affordable carriers with possibly less coverage?

    Can I charge them back for my 4g being down for 12 hours?

    Let's see... They're doing about $25 Billion in revenue quarterly. Netted $3.26 Billion in income in Q1 thanks to the iPhone. But they need us to kick in a couple of extra bucks a month for helping them not have to mail us a paper bill?!?!

    This doesn't impact me as my bill is automatically paid from my bank account, but I would love to see a national "Send Me a Paper Bill" movement, which I would opt for, to point out the stupidity of this move. If VZW doesn't think they're capable of Netflix-level stupidity they're wrong. Just do stuff like this, and keep having weekly, day-long 4G outages, and cap data, and see what happens. I like the phones. I don't care who the carrier is, per se. I'm interested in the best deal so long as the quality of the service is good. I used to feel VZW's service area was head-and-shoulders above the rest. Not so sure anymore. Certainly the gap is narrowing.

    Do what I do, when I don't have data I call them and complain and they credit my bill. I have two lines for two months and already have been credited $70. I pay for data and when I dont have it they pay.

    while I agree with and plan to call for credits over the outage I have to say i'm a bit surprised at people. Ranting over a fee that is easily avoided? Some of the excuses make me chuckle..."I want my rewards!!!" Then you'll pay for that privilege.

    I pay using my online bill pay for one reason: Verizon can't ever say that a payment wasn't made. My bank knows, and paying on Verizon's site gives them an excuse to say you didn't pay, and if the confirmation is invalid, fails or whatever you have no real proof you did.

    I agree, this is bunk! I just changed to a paper bill... go to My Verizon -> My Profile -> View All -> Change Paperless Billing. Really, a company that makes 5% to 10% on margins needs to do this? When everyone is complaining about dropped data on LTE?

    I already do this through my banks' bill pay. I really discourage anyone from ever giving a creditor (and yes, Verizon is a creditor) their banking information. Not a wise practice.
