I called quite a few times in June as a verizon customer, saying how I felt that they violated my privacy due to this whole NSA thing. I wasn't
personally named, the cops had no probable cause, and they just bent over and submitted to some FISA court and wanted out of my contract on principle.
They didn't care, they had their contract & I was crap out of luck, until now.
HOWEVER, on Sept 26 of this year their extended warranty program goes up in price. According to their own contract, if at any time they raise their
prices, and you don't agree with the price change, you can call them up and get out of your contract for FREE. No ETF fee (early termination fee), and
you can get your phone unlocked, so that you can use your phone on other networks, etc.
I had Asurion, which when I got this letter, i immediately dropped for VERIZON'S extended warranty program. Come Sept 26, I'll be sure to call & get
my free ETF. (And then immediately buy a $50 phone card, and basically have the same plan with no contract & save myself an extra $70 a month to
Just thought others here who are in the same boat as I am, (and don't like their privacy violated) would appreciate the info.
And for those of you that will argue "you're still being violated", if enough of us call and cancel and tell them WHY they're losing us after the
cancellation, maybe the next time they get that court order they'll tell FISA to stuff it.And if not, at least they don't deserve my money.
(I know he odds are slim, but dare to dream.)
