Surcharge for business email

I'm just posting to express my frustration with Verizon Wireless imposing a $15 per month fee to allow customers to get their corporate email on their phones. The fee is outrageous, and is not any relief at all for some perceived "burden" Verizon is undergoing by allowing ActiveSync traffic on their network. I'm one of millions of people whose company also wants them to stay in touch via email - installing the Good Mobile messaging client provided by them. I get less than half the amount of corporate mail than I get personal mail, and charging this exorbitant fee is simply being a troll at the entrance to available Internet services, deciding that since a company is involved, they can afford to take a little more.

I was made to switch from my unlimited plan (of which I rarely used 4GB), to a much higher cost plan with lower data cap (another arbitrary limit), so that I could choose to tether my laptop (only in emergencies - I almost never used it), and to add icing to that cake, I had to then pay the additional $15 per month, so now doubling my data plan cost with no additional benefits or service improvements.

Your greed is uncontrolled, and I plan to find the nearest class-action lawsuit to join so that the courts will put your greed in check! I know this will get no where in this forum, but I'm going to make sure everyone hears it.

Let's see, $15 fee for corporate email? Shouldn't your employer be paying this if they want you to receive corporate email on a personal device?

Regardless, you should always shop for the provider which best suits your needs.Smiley Happy

Class Action Lawsuits are no longer allowed per the US Supreme Court. http://ridgefield.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/us-supreme-court-limits-class-action-lawsuits

Only private rights of actions only.

And RC is absolutely correct, your employer should pay the fees since they want you to be available via email.

Good Luck

Don't confuse "...severely restrict the successful institution of class action lawsuits" with "no longer allowed." What they meant was "you're gonna need a better class commonality."

In my opinion, one should have to pay the fee, whether my employer, myself, or the guy down the block, which is my point. I just cancelled my pointless landline service from Verizon to make up the difference.

No, I use that site because it was handy.

Many other sites state Class Actions when Arbitration is specified in your contracts must be pursued via those means or single right of actions.

Verizon Wireless was sued by six class actions over the violation of the NSA requesting records. Look it up, all six were dismissed.

Believe me I liked how class actions worked, however the only winners were the lawyers.

Years ago Verizon lost a class action and I received a $25 voucher to buy accessories.

Good Luck
