Breaking: Verizon Cancels $2 Convenience Fee for Online and Telephone Single Payments


In somewhat shocking fashion, Verizon has announced that they will not institute their single payment $2 convenience fee that we first reported on just 2 days ago. Here is the statement that just came across the wire:

Verizon Wireless Will Not Institute Single Payment Fee

December 30, 2011

Verizon Wireless has decided it will not institute the fee for online or telephone single payments that was announced earlier this week.

The company made the decision in response to customer feedback about the plan, which was designed to improve the efficiency of those transactions. The company continues to encourage customers to take advantage of the numerous simple and convenient payment methods it provides.

“At Verizon, we take great care to listen to our customers.  Based on their input, we believe the best path forward is to encourage customers to take advantage of the best and most efficient options, eliminating the need to institute the fee at this time,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer of Verizon Wireless.

+1 to Verizon for listening to their customers, and +1 to all of you for speaking your minds.

  • my co-worker’s ex-wife makes $76 every hour on the internet. She has been fired for 8 months but last month her income was $8437 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this site… LazyCash1

  • 46% of customers pay their bill this way and would have been charged unlike the 2gb and now 4gb double the data bs which only affected people that use more than that which isn’t quite as  many.  It’s just like weed it will be legalized eventually once the balance tips over 50% and people revolt cause they are raiding everything and the police state becomes too much  

  • Hey the rapists made the mistake of putting their convoluted price gouging into plain English that normal people could understand rather than doing it behind closed doors in the form of a excessive overage fee etc. Wow twice the data for the same low price of 30 a month what a deal i’m going to sign a new contract right away and get rid of my unlimited plan now! I am getting way under-charged. I was really excited about paying them to pay my bill….. 

  • They’re still a bunch of rapists…

    should also return to the unlimited data plan again!!!

  • “in response to customer feedback”?? Really?? How about all the messages Ive sent about locking all these damn bootloaders. 

  • They just settled with their striking workers and just figured we would cover it for them… HELL NO!!!!

  • I was about to call Verizon and ask them how much it was to cancel service. I don’t agree with company’s constantly changing their policy on what we get charged while in contract. So for what it’s worth I have a second phone I carry and was going to cancel my primary Verizon and go with just one phone. I haven’t been super impressed with the handling of the Thunderbolt issues and now I have the Galaxy Nexus (paid full retail).

    FCC: Hello Verizon, we have some questions about that $2 charge.

    Verizon: Oh that’s just to fund our Obama campaign contributions.

    FCC: OK, well have a nice day.

    Verizon: What about those customer complaints?

    FCC: Just tell them we are mandating the fee to help provide WIFI to under served inner city areas.
    FCC: And we’ll take care of any blogs or forums that might complain.

  • I guess they were paying attention to what happened to Netflix.
