Verizon and Contracts from hell!!!

A friend of mine read my post about Sirius and gave me his horror story with NO-Customer Service.

He has service with Sprint so he bought a laptop with an enbedded wireless card serviced by Verizon.

Well, he wanted to try the service so he signed up for the trail period. His dumb butt did not cancel it before the 30 days as a matter of fact he allowed it to go delinquent 90 days.

Anyways, he called to try and pay and cancel the service but to his surprised part of the initial signing up he was automatically locked into a 2 year contract with an early termination fee of $165.00. Ouch!!!!

He went back and forth pleading his case. It was his understanding that you would only get locked into a contract if you were given a device. Part of the promotion and logic behind a 2 year contract is to offset the discount (sometimes free) device when you sign up. The device actually costs $400 but they give it to you for $99 with a 2 year contract so they can spread out the balance. You ultimatly pay for the device. The problem is that Verizon (or any other phone service) continues to get paid on the device after 2 years!! What a scam.

He thought because he did not need a device (service only) that he would not be locked into a 2 year contract.

To his surprise, in order to use Verizon’s service he will be locked in a 2 year contract regardless if he provides his own equipment or not.

The moral of the story is – READ YOUR CONTRACT or take advantage of the promotion to get a free or discounted device.

  1. I seldom drop responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here %BLOGTITLE%. And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it appear like some of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
