Verizon reverses on $2 fee for one-time payments

NEW YORK (AP) - December 30, 2011

In a statement on its website Friday, it says "customer feedback" prompted the decision to drop the "convenience fee" it wanted to introduce on Jan. 15.

Verizon, the country's largest cellphone company, wanted to steer people to electronic check payments and automatic credit card payments.

A petition on against the fees had gathered more than 57,000 names on Friday afternoon.
