    LOl... you are upset because you could not scam them out of $20 of service? So instead of paying $20 you are now paying $40???

    I don't understand how you can be mad?

    Verizon did nothing wrong... well, maybe no educating all the CSRs.....

    Scam huh? I guess it bacame a scam when you couldn't get it after numerous times as you posted in prior pages. Now that's something to LOl about. People tried to share a good thing here and seeing post like yours just makes me what the point was. BTW it shows how selfish you are posting stuff like this. Scam.. makes me laugh. I feel good about you not getting the plan too.

    Got a call this morning from 888-366-0899. I didn't answer, but Googling revealed that it's a number at Verizon. They didn't leave a message. I wonder if they were calling about PDATP.... it still shows up on my plan though....

    So scary!! I got almost the same number calling me today: 888-366-0903. Didn't pick up but only because I missed it.

    lol, ok here's the plan: Answer all calls from mystery 800 numbers as "your name, Inc", if you must answer, that is

    Edit: I called the number back. It turns out it was only the every-three-month call I get from Verizon asking me to re-up for another two years. All good!

    I was able to scam my way into SERO!!!

    No, my point to the poster was why be mad at verizon? We all try to save a dollar... yes, it is a scam... we know that the pdatp plan was for corps... he posts like verizon did something wrong??? Huh

    What you don't see is me bashing the hell out of verizon because I did not get the plan... no, I went over to sprint.

    And I use scam lightly... don't get your panties in a twist...

    Point was: VERIZON is doing nothing wrong by telling people this plan was not meant for them... as posted in this thread already!!!!!

    I dont think its a scam. My account is a corp account & I am entitled to this plan as a corp with 200+ employees. What is a scam is that Verizon's data which was costing me 44.99 per month, is now costing me $20.00 - 20% corp discount = $16.00 per month (Cheaper than Sprint Sero).

    Why shouldnt corp users get a discount?

    I tend to agree, and if Verizon had had their s*** together from the beginning, this wouldn't be an issue. But lots of people, myself included, have called up and successfully gotten this feature added despite not having a corporate account. In my case, the CSR actually spoke to someone in their corporate division and confirmed that there was no reason that PDATP couldn't be added to my personal account. So if they take it away from me now I'll be royally, and rightfully, pissed!

    But you would have lost nothing... you were not suppose to be on the plan in the first place.

    You would have gained a month or two on the plan.

    RichKlein... lol... yea, I speak for verizon.... Let me see, if you are suppose to get the plan, fine... if not, fine... but don't be mad at verizon because they come after you... as long as you think it is fine to pay $16 for a $44 plan that is great (and I agree with you... wish I was paying that amount). Far as verizon being a scam for being high cost... no, vote with your wallet... go over to sprint for data, like I have.

    Again, I'd be right there with ya if they had been up-front about it. But when I spoke to the CSR I specifically mentioned that I had heard PDATP was intended for corporate users, but it seemed as if individual users were being allowed to sign up too. I wasn't "scamming" them - in fact, I gave them every opportunity to tell me that the plan wasn't legit before they added it. For them to back out now would be a crappy move on their part, and would probably result in me switching to a different carrier. Hell, I need a new phone anyway! (still using a Treo 600)

    Denied the PDATP Plan and:

    * What did the Verizon CSR tell you why you cannot have this plan?I was told that the Pdatp plan is no longer availiable for Palm Devices. I called on 1/19/07

    * Where are you located as per your Verizon contract?
    Rochester, NY

    * Do you have a Regular (Non-Business/Corporate) or Corporate account?
    Business- Account

    * Do you have a FamilyShare Plan?
    No
    * Other info you would like to share.
    I am a day late on payment(shouldnt make a diff.) and i was very polite about it, even after the bad news.

    What I was trying to say was not everyone knew what the PDATP plan was when the tread had started. All we knew was that it saved money. No one here knew that it was only for the CORP accounts.

    When my PDATP got *approved*, I wasn't telling the CSR my office buddy had it and I want it too. I basically told them that there is such a plan, and I needed the CSR to look into it, and she did. I asked the lady if I could get it, and she told me she didn't see a problem. That was it. If this is scam, I wouldn't know what a real scam is.

    Welcome to SERO BTW.

    Actually, it had been suspected for a while, though not confirmed until very recently. I had heard (on another board, PPC Geeks I think) that it was intended for corporate accounts but was also being granted, on request, to personal accounts. That's why I decided to give it a try... and this was way back in early December. Minor point tho.

    Can someone that lives in the Northeast please call the Verizon 800 number and ask for the number to call if you need to reach a certain extension and please post it in here?

    All the calls from the Southeast are routed to Houston, TX.

    Well, I can say I've called numerous time and talked to numerous people and no one has ever heard of this plan, much less find it listed anywhere. So, if it does exist and you actually did get it...you are lucky.
  15. #195  
    Although, if you are like me, you can get it and then not have it work! LOL. When my PDATP plan was to take effect, I lost my data connection and didn't have it up an running until they removed the PDATP and put the regular plan back. They must be starting to catch on.

    BTW - I don't feel bad for Verizon one bit - I wish more people could get this plan to work. I feel that $44.95 is ridiculous for a data plan on top of the voice plan. I have verizon for my TV and my home phone, so I certainly shell out enough $$$ to them!

    Did you update your phone by dialing *228 then selecting option 2 after you got the PDATP add-on?
    This is what solved the Data issue for some people that switched to PDATP.

    If you didn't, maybe try to call VZW again and try to get it back and do the update.
    Worst that can happen is that you switch back again.

    yeah, updated three times. no good. Didn't feel like fighting the CSA too hard for it, so I just switched back.
  19. #199  
    Okay, here's the deal, from an actual VZW customer service representative.

    This feature was created through a PRIVATELY NEGOTIATED CONTRACT with a BUSINESS in the NORTHEAST region. So, when reps tell you they don't see the feature, they mean it. They aren't lying, some of them really really don't have access to it if they are employees in either the West, South, or Midwest region.

    Second, if you happen to have the feature on your account and you are NOT an employee with the corporation that had that feature specifically created for their own employees, you are in the wrong. If it's found you got someone to add the feature onto your account under false pretenses or by being dishonest in anyway, your account could be cancelled. Oh, and guess who'd be responsible for the Early Termination Fee - YOU.

    Again, consumers are not eligible for this feature. If you are told you aren't eligible for it, YOU'RE NOT. If someone added it on to your account by mistake, you got lucky, because they probably didn't know any better. You had just better hope no one notices, because word about this is spreading like wildfire, and people ARE NOTICING.

    So, now you know. Stop trying to cheat the system.

    I did make a call to get credit for my first month's fee on data few days ago, and did get the credit. I didn't hear any complaint from CSR. I do hope VZW gives me some sort of excuse to terminate current contract so I can move on to Sprint. I will still come up on top even after the termination fee and move on to Sprint is the sad fact of poor pricing by VZW.

    And yes, if you are a true VZW CSR, you are working too hard for your money.
