If you are a prepaid customer and we send you messages, they will be immediately considered received if we send them to your wireless device or an email you have given us, or if we publish them as a precall notification about your service, or after three days if we send them to the most up-to-date address we have for you. If you need to send us messages, please send them to the prepaid customer service address at verizonwireless.com/contactus Nearly two years ago (2018), my wife and I opened an account at Verizon. We struggled to get a strong signal in the basement of our home in Utah, where I worked from my Home Office. The word on the street was that Verizon had the most powerful network in the country. With this understanding, we went down to our local Verizon office and established accounts for my wife and I, complete with two new Samsung S9 phones (worth $800 each and designed with high-tech cameras, that we felt, help us take great pictures of our family) that “came with the plan”, which really meant that if we paid a monthly fee for the phones and did not pay them early, we would ultimately pay only 400 dollars for them “The customer service staff told me immediately that I had to pay 170 us dollars for an early termination, because I had updated the service” Diori said. “I explained that I hadn`t updated the service and that Verizon had updated it and that I had no choice.” Recently I saw a Verizon phone that has one of those nice keyboards that slides, and I thought I could be something I could really use. But I know I have a 2-year contract with Cingular, not to mention a ton of rollover minutes, at this point. The early termination fees charged by mobile operators are appalling! Most companies charge between $150 and $200 to terminate your contract before they meet the terms. In the past, I have contracted a mobile phone with Verizon by transferring my phone number and my contract to a friend. I was able to avoid paying the $175 tax (EARLY Termination Fee, ETF).

There are several other ways to get a phone without paying a penny, and with the current competition, some mobile phone providers will even pay the termination fee for you if you sign up with them! (see below for some offers).
