Why is Verizon so expensive? I have been a loyal customer for YEARS! I have 3 smart phones and my bill is $210 per month. It's crazy.

I can't aford paying $300 plus for 2 lines with verizon.  this is getting stressful heck, I can't even aford to pay over $486 as that's my price right now.  And I wanna pay this off and both my phones so I can leave but not sure how I'm going to come up with money.  I'm on social security and I ca n't save money to do it as I have other bills to pay.

I left Verizon in December and haven't looked back. Verizon 4G on a Verizon 4G device for less than half the cost. . . ? Yes, please.

If you are looking at the no contract pricing it looks cheaper on other carriers. If you don't include them they are within on average $30 difference.

$100 for 4 lines for example only get it on T-Mobile if you BYOD. If you do not it's  closer to $180-220 depending on which smartphones you get. Then you have to consider which data plan for each line. That's the gotcha we see on other carrier forums.

Verizon is such a smug company and a bully I think I am willing to pay more elsewhere just to get out from under them.  They really don't care about customers or loyalty.  I dealt with a 'specialist" today who told me she had a deal just me as a loyalty promo.  The deal with nothing more than the Share Everything plan and the only discount came form the corporate discount from my employer.  I asked her about it and still have not gotten a reply.

If it's  about "principle" I suggest you no longer get a cell phone or stick with prepaid.

Word of advice from one consumer to another. Loyalty is a marketing tool. Don't get caught up with the term

I have been a customer with Verizon since 2003. The choices in my area were limited so Verizon had the market but now many carriers are starting to have a strong presence I am actively working to leave Verizon my contract is up and they made changes to my account without disclosing the cost to me and they will not put me back to my older plan even though I caught their mistake the day it occurred.  Verizon bullies their customers.  Do like many are doing get a new carrier. It is the only way they will start valuing customers is when they are losing them.

Once your phones are out of contract, the cost goes down to $125. The difference is you are paying for the phones.   I assume you have 10 GB

Cost is important and so is getting the most for your money. We're saddened to see you want to change wireless service providers. Let's discuss the International charges. Has either line made calls or sent text messages to international phone numbers? You can view Bill Details to see exactly how the charges were initiated: https://m.vzw.com/m/viewyourbill.  SheritaH_VZW
