When you're getting beaten down by your larger and smaller rivals, it's time for desperate measures. And there's certainly a hint of that with Sprint's latest offer for AT&T and Verizon customers: Switch over to Sprint starting on December 5 and your cellphone bill will get cut in half. The ca

Congratulations Verizon, you're the latest wireless provider to lose a class-action early termination fee-related lawsuit! It's a dispute that's been circulating in courts since 2008, and while the settlement was agreed upon quickly, there were a few lingering appeals that have taken this long to ge

Any geek who can get FiOS, has FiOS; but there are plenty out there who live in a area with the all fiber service and don't subscribe. We're sure there are plenty of really lame reasons not to switch, but not wanting to sign a two-year commitment isn't one of them. For whatever reason most don't re

You might think that if only Verizon's FiOS service was available in your area, then life would be nearly perfect. And although FiOS offers some of the fastest internet in the US as well as some of the highest quality HD and a fantastic selection, it isn't all rosy over there. In fact the service h

Even though the FCC just gave Verizon until Monday to respond to its inquiries regarding the company's new $350 \"advanced device\" early termination fee, they've shown some hustle here and delivered their 77 (yes, seventy-seven) page response today. Here are the two big takeaways consumers are going

Early termination fees have always represented the flipside of subsidized pricing -- the necessary evil that keeps free phones free. Thing is, they were tough enough to swallow at $175 or $200, but Verizon's recently gone for the jugular in a hell-bent effort to keep subscribers locked in by upping

Just a word of caution to anyone out there with an itchy credit card finger: signing up for a contract with Verizon just became a considerably more binding affair thanks to a big boost of its contract early termination fee from $175 to $350. Rumored for a few days now, the change became official as

As expected, Verizon has announced today that its customers (and would-be customers) are welcome to sign up for month-to-month plans with no contract -- and thus, no early-termination fee -- involved, mimicking a move by AT&T earlier in the year. Of course, anyone taking advantage of the new pla

It's a far cry from the $1 billion potential pay-out we heard about initially, but it looks like Verizon will still be forking over a hefty chunk of cash as a result of that class action lawsuit over early termination fees -- $21 million, to be exact. Verizon still isn't about to admit to any wrong
