According to sources of ours, Verizon is planning to allow for Google Play carrier billing on October 18. Once live, users will be able to spend up to $25 per phone in the Google Play store and charge it to their Verizon account. Buying apps, music, and movies doesn’t get any simpler than this.
We are assuming the $25 fee is
either a one-time transaction fee limit or a monthly limit rather than a life time limit. Basically, that means that you can’t buy a Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 7 and charge it directly to your VZW account.
Still, you have to be excited for this news. Long have we been jealous of AT&T customers and those from other carriers that have allowed for carrier billing.
