    I meant "offpeak" in the generic sense. You can confirm this with VZW
    if you want - I believe they come out of weekend instead of night bucket...
    iow, if you only have nights and not weekends you still pay.

    The big deal, besides what I already posted about us being entitled to six
    free days per year, is that CS *told* me July 5 would be free (yeah, right,
    why believe *them*?).

    I just did a #646 and it looks like they did, in fact, bill my NA time on
    Monday as peak. It's pretty unlikely that I will go over anyway, but if I
    do, it's certainly worth bitching about.

    Hey, guess what?! We can have this argument again this December! Christmas
    and New Year's are on Saturdays and therefore also off-peak anyway. Then we
    can do it again *next* December when they'll be on Sundays...

    I plan to ask this question via email and keep the response on file. And
    then shove it down their throats when they renege.
