Thursday Poll: How Do You Pay Your Verizon Bill Each Month?


The talk of the last day has clearly been the new $2 “convenience fee” that Verizon plans to charge customers who pay their bill each month via credit or debit card over the phone or online starting January 15. While there are plenty of options out there that can get your around this fee, we couldn’t help but wonder how the majority of you currently pay your bill each month. Are you paying with a card online or over the phone and are subject to this new charge? Do you use autopay? Anyone using snail mail? Let us know.

    it seems i’ll be paying thru my banking instead of vzw direct. I’d like to do mail-in just to spite them but Im too lazy for that

  • Gunther

    Maybe I’ll start charging Verizon a $5 convenience fee for paying my bill on-time too,.

  • Abba Dalla

    So everyone knows we could as the customer get Verizon wireless to dismiss this charge by all asking for paper billing costing them millions and millions of dollars; having to mail out almost everyone’s bill will be pricey even if they somehow were able to handle all the packing and mailing internally. If we each ask for paper bills this will definitely make them change their tune. What they are trying to do is gain guaranteed money for people paying bills with errors and then stating that the customer paid the bill, because they have it somewhere in their statements and policies that if the customer pays a bill they agree to all the charges. This will give them the upper hand in giving or not giving credits to customer for shiesty sales reps and telesales reps ripping off customers. Think about that policy that if everyone or the majorities now pay errant bills online with auto pay then try to dispute a bill they will now receive money they weren’t supposed to have.

  • Rogue_5

  • johnny

    from now on i will be sending in the exact amount via snail mail….plus at least ten cents so that management has to look through it ;]

  • Downey1971

    Dear Verizon: I will gladly pay the additional $2 fee, if it will be used to keep your 4g network from going down anymore.

  • Bobber

    If they are going to try to be like the Bank of America, then I’ll do whatever it takes to make it worse for them. I’ll start writing checks again and they can go through the work of processing them.

    I think everyone should go to their Verizon account and Reactivate “Paper Billing” @#$%%^& Bastards, and is paying in cash an in store option, cause I will stop at the bank get all change, and pay they ass in all loose quarters. WTF – charging for an Internet bill pay. Now, they’ll be printing and mailing me a bill every month, think that should cover each $2 they get from me. Efn Bastards.

  • Samthewise28

    verizon sat down and saw the largest form of payment they get is one time CC payments.
    so they added a fee because they know most people will just pay it and not notice. after the way they handled the nexus release i guess they feel that they can get away with anything.

  • Letsmotor

    Other options are blood or first born

  • Its not right to charge 2 bucks for doing the right thing …

    • How is paying by cc the Right thing ?? You could say that with any type of payment so I don’t see how paying by cc is the right thing ??

  • Looks like I’m going to be stopping into the store every month to pay with a rewards card… and I’m calling for a service credit every time there’s any service issue…

  • RavnosRavnoscc

    If they are trying to justify applying the fee to one time cc payments online by saying cc companies are raising the cost of those transactions, then WHY is “auto pay” online not also subject to the fee?

      Also this is illegal in some states such as california (to charge more cor someone using a credit card that is)

    Great news for pre-paid customers I take it the same BS would be true there?

  • Pruittcy

    Just str8 silly……………

  • For those who don’t know (and perhaps it has already been posted here), but Verizon charging a convenience fee for paying your bill isn’t anything new. If you want to pay your bill in cash at a Verizon store, you get charged a $3.00 convenience fee.

          Pinche Vzw must be on to me! As I posted the above threat, I lost 4G!

      • QtDL

        I second this! 😉

  • Honestly, I think it would be hilarious if we all started paying in store, as mentioned in the comments of the original post. Imagine the sheer amount of time lost for their (commissioned!!) usually-none-too-bright salesfolks.

    Via “My Verizon” app; fingers crossed

    Use paying with check routing and account number still an option without the $2 fee? If so im going that route now. Use to pay with debit via my verizon app on phone.

    Making my last payment in 2 weeks, they charge WAY too much $$$ for there services! i’m going to someone else for HALF the money, and still using there network, and ANDROID!! 
    Verizon, you GREEDY bastards can get blood from another stone!

    • Bionic

      just because a certain company uses verizon towers does not mean you will get the same coverage.  My brother has a pre-paid phone that uses verizon network and we went camping out west.  I got signal on my bionic, his pre-paid phone did not.  We called customer service and the guy explained that bascially the rights to each individual tower in a region is negotiated.

    MyVerizon app on my phone.

      That’s what I use…does that fall in line for the $2 charge?

      • Yes because your essentially paying by phone and using an internet connection.

  • No wonder they want to enforce a $2 free for online pay LOL. Its the number 1 used payment method. That’s ok, I’ll have my bank send you that mail bolonga by doing it online. Thanks Chase!

  • Mjsplicer78

    Used to pay by card via web. I’ll let em deal with a check from now on. .!..

  • Godzeera

    Verizon has had the option to enter your checking account information for years! I get an email that says my bill is ready, I log in and click pay bill. I’ve been doing that for more than 3 years Anyone who would pay that fee deserves to lose money. How lazy can you be?

  • I pay with Verizon One-Bill. It bundles my FIOS and Verizon Wireless bills together and gives me a discount. I pay One-Bill with direct payment from my checking account so i guess this does not effect me.

  • Jeff Tingey

    I’d set up an autopay if there was a way to use two different accounts. I use my phone for work and can expense a portion of the bill if I pay with my company card. Seems like they don’t want corporate business.
