Title: Verizon Wireless Master Thread
Post by: Wizard on December 06, 2015, 04:16:55 AM
Just starting this thread for Verizon Wireless customers to post random questions about plans/plan changes/etc..
Title: Re: Verizon Wireless Master Thread

OK I'll start:
I'm currently on a add on line on a regular data plan and still in contract till June and have been out of the country for a bit so I had them put the line on hold and they didn't charge me at all. Now after 6 months they said they can't put it on hold anymore. So they put me on the cheapest plan I think it's $10 another plus tax. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to get out of contract earlier and not have to wait till June?

Thanks for starting. You can't get them to put on hold for more another 6 months? Maybe try a manager? Or tweet to their Twitter support page... Otherwise you can try to get a different carrier to pay your early termination fee w Verizon so that you can switch to them and then cancel with them after a month. Or just have them put your account on hold.. Hatzlacha!

The max they allow putting on hold is 6 months in a 2 year contract. Do you recommend any carrier that would be the best to pay the early termination fee?

Have this problem also with my son in Israel. I did not have this problem when my other kids were there. I just had to re-suspend the line every 3 months. Now they won't let me suspend any more even though I am aware it extends my 2 year contract. They just don't care even when I said that I am rethinking continuing my service with them since I feel like they are nickel and dimeing me (I have grandfathered data and have to pay $20 extra a month for the service). Truth is, they have the best service.

I think AT&T is a good carrier these days, perhaps even better than Verizon (I know AT&T has better service in upstate NY). I'm not sure they offer to pay the early termination fee.. Also, you mention that you're away internationally - you may want to check out T-Mobile, they have good international roaming plans I think...

Either way, make sure you are not going to be in contract with new carrier or if yes, that they will allow you to put on hold for long enough...

Not necessarily anymore. AT&T I think  is pretty good these days. Did you try tweeting VZWSupport on Twitter? They may be able to help if you threaten to leave...

You're referring to the business email address where certain companies have an contracts that employees get a discount, not VZW employee discount right? Yeh I would like that too! Anyone that has can PM me too.. TIA

Right now you can go to vzw and get 300 dollar credit just for adding a line when you trade in a working smartphone and it can even be a 15 dollar smartphone just make sure it's a device payment...

Yes but I'm not looking to add a line which will be an extra $20/month. I was asking if I leave VZW when I'm out of contract and come back 2 years later can I get the $300 per line I bring back? If yes, I can continue doing this every two years switching back and forth between carriers that will pay me to bring in my line... Has anyone had experience with this?

At&t has terrible coverage in woodridge, NY so it really depends on the area. In Monsey near New Square they are terrible, Lakewood East of the tracks and Williamsbug are all bad areas for At&t.

Don't know if it was a targeted promotion. Was on the phone with a Verizon business rep (i am currently on a business plan with 10 lines and 50gig shared data a month) and she said if you spend more then $100 on data a month (which I do) I qualify for a free 12 gig a month till 2018.. (this month I am receiving 65 gig, 15 free. 12 from this promotion 1 from thanksgiving promotion and 2 from downloading the GO90 app)

They said it was a holiday promotion. And you don't need a 50 GB plan, she said if you spend over $100 on data.

Is there any good reason to stay on the More ShareEverything Plan w Verizon Wireless over the new Verizon Plan? I think the only downside is that I loose the for the subsidized pricing on a phone every two years but in truth that isn't a good deal cuz signing a contract causes higher monthly rates. When I am out of contract or on a device payment plan I get a month to month discount on my lines... Anyone on the same page as me and doesn't see a reason not to switch to the Verizon Plan?

I'm on the more everything plan.  I made my calculations the sub total by the end of the month the price is about the same.  Each plan has upsides and downsides.

BUMP. I want to upgrade to the Verizon Plan cuz I have a double data offer ($80 for 24GB instead of 12GB) if I switch but I'm nervous I'm going to regret it. It seems from Dans post (http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/71779) that giving up the subsidized phone option is bad... Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Where did you see that they aren't letting subsidized? Even before they allegedly changed that rule I didn't see any benefit of subsidized phones as I mentioned earlier. It's cheaper with the 24 payments... If the Verizon plan makes more sense for you I would switch. I'm on more everything cuz every line would go up by $5/month if I switch. Even though I would get a lot more data, I'm just about managing with what I have.

I tries upgrading from my accound and saw it's full price, when I called they told me there is no more subsidized phones in any plans
Staying on this plan is cheaper for me if I can just pay $199 for a phone, and there are 4 other lines that do bot need any upgrades

I don't enroll in it. It takes away some privacy and I believe it only gives you an extra GB for one month - not life. But that still may be worth it to you if you're going over and can save $15. You maybe can get it on each line and maybe can cancel after getting the free GB..

How can I disable receiving a text every time I get a voice mail? I tried what I found via Google, to no avail.  :(
Thanks.

Sounds like you're subscribed to the VZW voicemail to text. I think it even costs. Call them and ask to go off it...

No. The last time I called them about an issue, they kept me on for an hour and didn't even solve it. (I solved it myself by playing around for 5 minutes!)

Maybe try their twitter support like this you don't wait on hold... they're somewhat decent.

I preordered an iphone, and they told me I have 14 days to return from activation.
Is this reliable, as in if I activate it 2 months later so to speak, ill still be able to return it with out a problem?
Just wondering if its true or not.

Page plus does that, I don't think there's a way to shut it off on page plus. Are you on page plus?

Theyíre confused themselves... if you buy with Amex, you have return protection for 90 days...

that is only up to $300 though.
since its verizons fault, theoretically i would just dispute the charge, cause i would want to return it based on the info i got on the phone.
(the only question is whether to dispute the full amount or to deduct the restocking fee)
