Refuse to pay the bill. They (Verizion) tried to pull that on me a
few years ago (they bought out some carrier and we didn’t know about
it) and they kept sending us a bill for well over $100. Then it was
less than that (they said they would settle for like 30%-40% of the
ORIGINAL bill. We never sent them a penny. You are required to
choose a long distance carrier. That has been the rule for several
years. For several years we were with one of those 10-10 companies.
At first They charged a $4.95 monthly fee then 10 cents a minute.
Then they dropped the monthly fee and it was 5 cents a minute. It
was that way until recently I called them to have a call removed off
my bill that I did not make. They said they would remove it, but
they never did. While I was on the phone with them, they asked me if
I was aware that they were gonna start charging a monthly fee again.
I said NO I wasn’t, and asked how much it was gonna be. She said
$2.95 and that the rates would remain at 5 cents a minute with a 10
minute minimum, but that if I didn’t make any long distance calls that
I would not be charged the monthly fee. So I started shopping around
and found a company that is 4 cents a minute with no monthly fee, so
we will see. We don’t make many long distance calls and I felt that
that $2.95 would be better spent paying down my bills. Especially
with as little long distance calls as I make. I am gonna look into
getting a Sams Card so I can buy those AT&T pre paid calling cards.
