Google Play Tweet Confirms Verizon Carrier Billing for Apps, Music, and More

Just two days ago, we received a tip that carrier billing for Verizon customers would go live on Google Play starting today. Like clockwork, the following tweet was sent out from Google Play’s Twitter account, confirming our earlier reports.

Hey @Verizon Customers! Pay for Google Play apps, music and more on your phone bill. We’re rolling this out over the coming weeks. Enjoy!

Well, that about sums it up. Carrier billing has finally arrived for us Verizon customers. As a reminder, according to the image we spoke on earlier, there could be a $25 limit set for how much you can charge to your VZW account. Once it starts rolling out to users, we can learn more about it. Let us know when you start seeing the option.

    am i the only one who has had this feature since the first Droid? I’ve always been able to put market apps on my VZW bill. I’m actually allowed to put up to $500 worth of anything (phone, apps, cases, etc) on my bill at any time. It comes with paying my bill on time every month.

    I would never do this, I mean Verizon is already raping us with high bills, I don’t want it to look any worst by doing this. Forget it.

  • leoingle

    I really dont understand the significance of this. Is them being billed by google to a credit or debit card so hard???

      Just for people under 18 I presume. Wonder if Isis will have the option too

    Will this let me use Google Wallet on my brand-spanking new DROID RAZR HD that I just picked up today (WITH NFC)? Thought not.

  • I just don’t see the need for it at least for myself. I’ve been doing fine letting Google handle it.

  • I am already getting that option on my phone. Thunderbolt on android 4.0.3 android market version 3.9.16

    • Really? Did you have to do anything.

    • yarrellray

      Gosh Verizon still has the Thunderdud on shelves.. That device was the biggest joke ever.

  • I would never use carrier billing myself. Why should I? Most credit cards have rebate (mine has 2% cash rebate) — yes, apps are cheap, but a little bit of here and there add up pretty quickly (especially some in-app purchases.)

  • man, talk about “impulse buying”. Why don’t I throw in some tic-tacs and a stick of gum while we’re at it. My bill’s gonna go up.
