Verizon Increases Fee For NOT Making Long Distance Calls To $4

In case you weren’t aware, Verizon charges you a $2 fee for the “ability” to make long-distance calls. The only way to get this fee removed is to have your long-distance service blocked or to make more than $2 worth of calls every month. Sound stupid? Well, according to the bill that reader Troy just got, that stupid fee is about to double.

Yes, Verizon is going to charge Troy $4 a month to NOT make long-distance calls. Way to go, Verizon. That’s a great idea. Why not make it $20? $30? —MEGHANN MARCO
