Just recently, Verizon raised prices for text messaging. Such changes are usually followed by the legal notice which you could use to justify your exit. Again, they will argue with you, but they have to let you go.

It is suggested that interested users visit Consumerist website, where they can get more information about it.

    I`m a celltradeusa fan for life 🙂
