***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Roaming Charges!

Just got back from the Dominican Republic. Leave your phone home unless you own Verizon Wireless!

We had a data plan but the afternoon we arrived, I got a notice that one of the phones (a teenager) had gone over $150. In six hours! And that's just data! I kept everybody on Skype from our computers as much as I could ($2.00 per minute -- no plan available) and tried to control texting (.50 per SMS -- no plan available). Wait, it gets better -- Verizon cannot tell me within a thousand dollars how much our 5 day adventure cost us -- the bills will keep trickling in from the Dominican Republic over the next two months.

My advice again is to not take or use your phone (except in WiFi mode) there until Verizon can get a better deal from the Telco in DR. Yeah, you can get Skype and a number of other services that are voice and can call out at any time, but it does take a bit of geekiness to get a number that you can have folks use that will get through to your phone over WiFi.
