it's supposed to be free. all it did on mine when i initially opened it (a couple weeks ago) was ask me to sign into my "my verizon" account, and then it opened right up.
if nothing else, you could run it and just demand that they waive the fee when you get your bill. this was a HUGE bonus in my opinion. google to see if you can find it in text by verizon because i know i read somewhere that it's free all season for 4g devices.
verizon technical support just told me, no matter if you have 4g lte phone or not. to be able to watch the nfl videos, you will need to purchase the 10.00 vcast package. His name is Reese employee number V0M0155. I was under the impression that the nfl moblie premium was free for 2011 season with 4g phone. I guess I was wrong, He stated it was only promotional for a little while. If anyone has further information, please post here.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
While on the phone with CS about a billing question I brought this up. ...The CR agreed that I shouldn't be getting the $10/month or $3/day purchase screen. They couldn't explain why it functioned correctly prior to the GB update on my phone and a subsequent market update to the NFL mobile app. Tried the uninstall/re-install, force close/clear data and multiple restarting of the app itself and still could only get audio for the game.
I also notified them of my stock VM notification not working since GB and found "that is a new to them problem"and they wanted me to do some troubleshooting with technical support "exasperated sigh"...Good (and bad) thing I have no landlines to accommodate this but being unemployed/looking I need my VM indicator for prospective leads/interviews
