    Your articles makes me consider what exactly you earn. To be sure on lots of your data. Thanks.

    be part of a lot of your ideas and i’m still thinking about another
    facets of your article’s content.

  • I added a line for my sister on our Verizon plan during a promo for 2GB get 2GB free. Her phone was bad and she sent it back to get a replacement. During that time she had to use a basic phone. When she got her new phone they did not add back on her promo and she lost a free 2GB. I was denied the restoration of the promotion because my request was outside of a 14 day window “for plan restorals.” Customer service and a supervisor said there was nothing they could do and the team that approves or denies these is an offline team (how convenient). Is Verizon not in breach of contract somehow?

          Speaking of hacks, does anyone know how to change your Play store region from US to UK so I can install BBC iplayer?

          • You can find the APK easily enough on Google. You won’t be able to watch any content without a proxy though.

            there’s an app called market access that allows you to change carriers, i would imagine that it could change region to

  • Clearly is just an offer from Google Offers and not Verizon specifically targeting Google Wallet, at least I don’t think, but still funny.
