Verizon’s recent changes to their Mobile Broadband plans include new lower overage charges, and a new tethering plan for non-PDA phones.
If you started a Mobile BroadBand (aka BroadBandAccess) plan that uses an aircard or USB modem AFTER March 2008, your plan is likely to bill overage charges of $0.25 per megabyte ($250/GB).
The new lower overage charge of $0.05/MB ($50/GB) will NOT be applied to your account unless you ASK for it. (go figure)
You’ll need to call verizon customer service at (800) 922-0204 and tell them you want the new/lower overage charges for your service.
IF YOU HAVE UNLIMITED SERVICE — obviously, you do NOT want to ask for the lower overage charges!
For those of you who have a Verizon cell phone and have been paying $59.99/mo for the “data feature” that allows you to tether your phone to a computer for internet access… the feature is now $49.99/mo but you must again contact VZW and stop the feature and restart it, in order to qualify for the new lower price.
