I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that the worst companies in the entire technology space are the ones that call themselves carriers. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon are always charging their customers for outrageous things.
One of those outrageous things that Verizon is reaching into its customers' pockets for is a $2 convenience charge for paying the bill. If that doesn't constitute as the most terrible charges from any company ever, then I don't know what does.
If you're a Verizon customer and you want to get out of that extra $2 per month charge, then Big Red suggests you choose one of the following options to pay them money:
- Electronic check online (My Verizon Online, My Verizon Mobile/Handset). Fee waived.
- Electronic check via telephone. Fee waived.
- Enrollment in AutoPay using credit/debit/ATM card or electronic check; fee does not apply
- Online from the customer’s home-banking service provider website; fee does not apply.
- Credit/debit/ATM card, electronic check or cash at a Bill Payment Kiosk, Panel or with a representative at a Verizon Wireless Communications Store; fee does not apply.
- Use of a Verizon Wireless Gift Card or Verizon Wireless device Rebate Card to pay a bill in-store, online or by telephone; fee does not apply
- Paper check or money order mailed to the VZW remit address on customer’s bill; fee does not apply.
Well, there you go. I just hope Verizon doesn't push other carriers to do the same thing.[Verizon Wireless]
