I've just bought a new prepaid phone and I would like to activate it using the $45 unlimited talk & text plan.
I already have a $15 refill card, so I'd like to use it first and then pay the remaining $30 with another refill card or my credit card directly.
The activation page doesn't let me do that. It says: "Please enter Refill Card with balance amount equal to or higher than the total due amount."
It is likely that the poor and uneducated have no forum to inquire and/or complain.
This is apt to change.
Some ambulance chaser will form a class action suit against VZ. Meanwhile, the un-excepted prepaid cards end up in scrap boxes across the nation and their buyers sense deep and unrecoverable loss.
