Verizon reverses on $2 fee for one-time payments

NEW YORK (AP) - After a customer backlash, Verizon Wireless is
dropping a plan to start charging $2 for every payment subscribers
make over the phone or online with their credit cards.

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 Change.org against the fees had gathered more than
57,000 names on Friday afternoon.
