Default $1297 Verizon Bill...wanna know how?

Please Login to Remove!

Well, in my case I have a 7130e, I decided that instead of paying 44.99 per month for just blackberry access and limited browsing I would get an express card and unlimited data plan for my laptop. So, I did. I called Verizon and told them to deactivate data to my 7130e and I would just use it as a phone and use my laptop and express card for email. They removed the BB data feature from my account and I went on merrily moving my family to Ga from NC and never looked at my account until I got my bill 2 weeks later. Apparently even though you don't use any data features the BB still connects to the data network for almost 24 hours each day. I have called VZW and that's how I found out that even if you turn off the data feature you will still pay for it, in spades. I'm mow on T-Mobile.

Wow! Are you having to pay the entire bill, or did they work something out with you?

Wow! I'd make them pay my hospital bill, too. Because I would have had a heart attack!

Default Update

VZW stepped up and credited my account $1140.80, so I must say "yay Verizon" for doing the right thing.
