What does MOU Mean?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by John Coan, Dec 7, 2004.

    I have just started reading this news group again,,, now that contract time
    is up and the phone I had my eye on (Motorola 710) has turned out to be a
    turkey.... and I have managed to figure out most of the acronyms. But, MOU
    has me baffled. Someone should do a FAQ with a section just defining
    National Access, 1X, American's Choice, etc.etc.

    So, what does MOU mean, other than the noise a cow bellows into a rural,
    analog phone?

    MOU = Minutes of Use.

    Most of the references to it in these newsgroups has to do with Express
    Network or National Access or whatever you like to call it, where you can
    get on the internet with your cell phone connected to your laptop. Instead
    of paying a sizeable monthly fee for the extra service, or paying by the
    kilobyte, etc., you can get MOU to use up the minutes on your account
    instead. So, free night & weekends on the internet for a lot of customers.

    The above is correct, but it doesn't mention one very very very important
    point... it is an *OPTION* to a current plan, *NOT* a *PLAN* of it's own,
    and is absolutely *NOT* on the website, and only about 1 out of 50 CS reps
    know anything about it, or will bother with adding something free to your
    account (probably because they make absolutely no commision on a FREE option
    added to a plan).

    To make matters worse, it was added to many thousands of accounts free, you
    may already have it.. Got a bill handy? Look for "National Access" under
    current features.
