    I just started the NFL Mobile app and got a message saying my free preview is over after 9/30 and to subscribe to the premium service to continue. I thought this was free for the whole season?

    Verizon and NFL Mobile: Take the NFL Action with You.

    Yeah, tons of comments about this on the Android Market. It's gotta be a mistake somehow. Verizon is still advertising it as free.

    If I'm not mistaken the app will be free but you need to subscribe to Verizon's video service for $10/month to watch the games/videos, which to me does not seem like free, it seems like $10 per month, which if I'm not mistaken is $10 more than free, which I understand to be $0 per month. But who knows, maybe my math is wrong.

    Pretty sure that Shadez explained this in a news post. Something to the effect of "enjoy it for free until sept 30"

    I upgraded to a bionic a few weeks ago. At the time the app was saying "upgrade to a 4g device get nfl mobile free all season."

    I called vzw to ask how this worked, if it needed to be added to my account or what. I was told if you have a 4g phone after sept 30 it will continue on as it is now.

    I was wondering that too. If it shuts down the videos I will raise hell.

    When I bought my Bionic, the VZW rep, to her credit, was going through my account looking for things to delete (like VZ Navigator). She suggested deleting VCAST Video, and I said "no, I need that for NFL", and she shrugged and said OK. Never mentioned any promo. I have always accepted (with previous phones) that while the NFL app is free (yes, FREE), VCAST Video is required to fully utilize it.

    Has far as I was concerned, they always do that mess every year. O thought it was free too long time ago when I got my og Droid, which I still have ,
