Re: Me too? Pictures clearly aren't text.
said by quatrix:I emailed them and after some haggling they refunded the charges. I found that they are not supposed to charge for pics or video messaging since we have the unlimited texting plan that includes pics and video. Texting with pics had nothing to do with it.
Pictures clearly aren't text.
Per Verizon: "browsing and using Get It Now and Mobile Web is billed at $1.99 per megabyte. Your usage is accrued over the course of the billing cycle and rounded to the next full megabyte. As your usage did not exceed one megabyte for that billing cycle, you were billed $1.99."
I'm pretty sure none of these features were accessed. Just the fact that they "round up" is bullshit. Turn on your web browser accidentally and use 2Kb of data? $1.99 please. This whole thing is a real gray, and the bottom line it Verizon is fleecing their customers.
You have no idea, hehe.
$1.99/mb is $2037.76 a gb. It costs verizon less than $0.10 a gb to provide that service...wish i had those kind of profit margins.
