    I have to keep a watchful eye on my verizon bill, because they try and overcharge all the time. But when called on it, I always get an "Okay, we will take it off your bill."

    so thats what that was!!!!

    honest to GLaDOS. two of the five phones on our plan would be charged $1.99. every month and i know i didn't use any data nor did the other person. this happened like 3 months in a row.
  4. i dont think $30 or $90 million dollars could matter to Verizon because its customer money only
  5. Like any of this happens by accident.

    hmmm... we just need to 'borrow' $30 to $90 million for a little while. Then we apologize and give it back without interest/profit share.
