Verizon Wireless Discriminates Against you and will refuse to sell certain phones to you if you don't want a data plan. Wallingford , Connecticut
*Consumer Comment: Agree with Verizon Wireless
*Author of original report: Verizon now admits that they will charge a consumer for data even if they are not going to use it
*Author of original report: Why refuse a sale for a phone when they could offer one at a slightly higher cost.
*Consumer Comment: I think you may find that the smart phones that are capable of data are more expensive...
If you don't have a location to upload your data to and find the screen too small to browse the internet, and don't want to share your personal data but just want to use it locally with voice service only then why would you need data? If you want data then you can pay for it, but if you don't need it then you should have a right to have them waive the data fee and just pay whatever their basic plan charges.
This company tells you what you can and cannot do with your phone. Consumers should have a right to choose what they want to buy not have verizon wireless tell you what you must buy or get out of the store.
The data plan is a huge ripoff if your not going to use it!!!
