    I wonder if the legal beagles consider this enough of a material change in contract enough to render a contract cancelable without an ETF???

    At any rate - I just logged on to MyVerizon, and sent an e-mail stating I'm leaving them at the end of my contract should this prevail. I pay via MyVerizon... and will not abide by forking over $2/month for the privilege of THAT. Screw 'em.

    There are other ways to pay your bill that don't cost Verizon to process your payment. Just saying....

    I am glad I left Verizon and went back to AT&T. I would not put any more money into their network as long as they continue to suffer from data related issues. During the week that I used them with an LTE android, my whole data went out including 3G and the second time I had no LTE at all for over 24 hours. Verizon is just trying to justify their price hiking practices by saying this added fee will help their network.

    Same here. Besides that, it don't take that much effort to process a payment that they need to charge their customers 2 extra dollars in order to do so.

    You understand that they are most likely paying a point-of-sale merchants fee to the credit card company to process that payment, right? Probably 1-3%.

    Look, I understand the frustration and the anti-big business sentiment. I'm not going to defend them. But, having a small business myself, I can understand their point of view. Let's say that they have to pay $2 every time someone uses a card that they have to process. Probably, with the proliferation of small iDevices, they are getting more and more payments that way and they have made a decision that they're not going to cover the fee anymore.

    Don't get too comfortable with that. I guarantee you that AT&T has been looking at the subsidizing of credit card fees too. Implementing the same fee that Verizon now is has always been an option-- it's just been a matter of determining how big the outcry will be. Big business is very wary of pulling a Netflix move and losing customers en masse. Verizon merely stepped up first. If there is minimal fallout for Verizon-- which I think there will be-- AT&T will follow suit. Sprint is another story. They are looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the big 2 and may decide to continue covering the fees as a cost of doing business.

    To all of you who are touting AT&T - first of all, don't talk about outages. Verizon may have outages, although I've never had one and I live in the Chicagoland area, but that means you actually need to have a connection, so you can have an outage. With AT&T there are no outages cause you can never get a connection to begin with. Second of all, have you not seen that whatever one does, the other follows soon after. I bet AT&T has the same fee within 6 months. Also as mentioned above, AT&T just had to eat a big one for the T-mobile merger not going through. Do you actually think that they will just eat it? Nope. You all will be picking up that tab, guaranteed. Let's face it, as a consumer we really don't have much choice. We can pick one of the evil twins (Verizon or AT&T). Although Verizon has the better customer service as proven year after year by the rating surveys. Or we can go with Sprint which is cheaper, but has horrible coverage, the slowest speeds, and zero customer service. They also until recently had the worst selection of phones. Which leaves the only other option, Tmobile. Can't say anything about them as I never had them.

    Well since you don't mind the fee, if AT&T starts doing this, you can pay the $2 for me each month, lol.

    Who cares? I do. Obviously, you don't... and have to rub that fact in every chance you get. I guess you must get some sort of pleasure out of lauding your superiority...

    It's not just a matter of the $2 fee, either. If we as customers start letting them push crap fees like this on us we will be opening our wallets to a whole load of other crap fees as well.

    Well, it created a lot of publicity - keep checking your statements though - they
    might find other ways to sneak it in your bill.
