Verizon is Tacking on another $20 Fee

Verizon will charge customers $20 to upgrade their phones starting April 4.

The fee will apply virtually every time a customer upgrades to a new phone -- whether customers buy the phone outright from Verizon (VZ, Tech30), sign up for the carrier's device payment plans or even purchase the phone through Apple's Upgrade program.

Previously, Verizon had only charged upgrade fees to customers still under a two-year contract (a $40 fee, which remains in place).

And this is why I dropped my $170 monthly bill I had with Verizon years ago. I'll continue to pay my $41 a montn for the same exact service, with no contract.

Straight talk $45/mo. no contract - unlimited call/text/internet.

TING. $21 per phone, if you are conservative!

And why are they doing this? Because they can, and they will keep on charging for this, that and the other, because they can.

Still better than Comcast.
