Interesting. Never heard of that. Did you try calling and asking them?
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?

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)

Me and my wife are on a Verizon prepaid plan. I saw on Verizon's website a promotion for new customers who enter into a family plan for unlimited data, that you receive a $250 gift card at Verizon when porting a number from a different company.
My question is can I port our numbers to T-Mobile for one month and then come back to Verizon, and be eligible for the promotion?

Wireless or Fios?

Fios had some major issues earlier (9'ish) but it has since stabilized.

I noticed that verizon prepaid plans get free incoming sms even when out of the US, is this the same without outgoing texts?

Has anyone here done the BYOD $500 Verizon e-gift card with Verizon? Can those GC's be used to pay bill? Do they have an expiration? Promo says "up to $500." What does it depend on? Is it eligible with the newish 5G Start plan? Any other important limitations or conditions? Thanks.

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Did this deal. Works best with more lines obviously. The gc won't come in time for first payment or two. You need to keep device active for x amount of time, and the line active for x amount of time (12 months) or it will be clawed (billed) back. There are good Slickdeal threads on this. See if there are any CB deals as well. Only works with smartphones. The gc will be clearly displayed on plan selection page.

PSA You can get additional discount on Verizon plans if an Account Manager is an First Responder or Teacher. Not the Account Owner, the Account Manager and anybody can be set up as a manager, even someone not on your plan.
