Which other service providers work with jetpack? I have a jetpack that I am trying to activate with a minimal plan (1GB /mo is sufficient). There is a plan that is as low as 10$/GB for NEW customers. For existing customers, Verizon prefers to OVERCHARGE.  Even so, there is a plan for 15$/mo which I cannot add on my own, and a plan for 13.80 which I cannot even SEE online? Also, the amount for new service activation is  not fixed. it is 20$ online, and 40$ if you ask a rep to help you ( and you have to ask a rep since not all their plans are shown online, there are some special ones (e.g. the 13.80$ plan) that only the agent can see ..... ) and sometimes this can be waived but I don't know what's the secret to getting the reps to help you waive it....

Why Verizon, why? Do you enjoy making life difficult for me?


PS: if i add a plan online and cancel within 14 days, I will be refunded the activation fees, right? Then I can keep doing this and skip activation fees? yes?
