Nationwide plans are the problem This has been happening since the Nationwide plans were introduced back in Nov 2007, and VZW started charging data per MB, rather than per air time minute used.
Verizon needs to finatlly admit there is a flaw in their billing system that needs to be fixed.
THere are things the phones do, that the user does NOT initiate which can also cause this.
The only thing a USER can do...
1. Call VZW and have them block ALL data, which includes Vcast, Get-it-Now/Media Center, and even MMS messages (so basically all you can do is Call/Text)
2. Subscribe to the $15 Vcast Vpack to cover data
3. Watch your bill every month, and call VZW if you notice the charge, and prepare to argue with them until the reverse it. They wont always credit you!
None of this should have to be fixed BUT THE CUSTOMER taking these steps.
