EN as free add on?

    I have an AC 400 (500 with the free 100) plan and have heard about the free
    MOU EN stuff. I called today to customer service and they said there was no
    such animal and never has been one. They wanted me to dump AC and move to
    some National plan with no N&W mins but would share EN with voice. I turned
    them down as it would cost me more.

    What is the scoop with the MOU EN ? Does it really exist or not?

    TIA

    It does, I have it... the question is whether it's supposed to be provisioned
    for data calls or not.

    Depending on when you got a new contract, you may already have it! Most new
    AC contracts after July 15th had it added automatically. Note that it says
    "AC contracts", most of the problems I've heard are people trying to add it
    to singlerate/local/shared etc.
    As far as the salepeople go, consider, they make absolutely NO commision if
    you do NOTHING, of course they are gonna try and get you to go to a new
    contract so they get money in their pockets!

    To see if you already have it, go to
    http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/index.jsp
    click on LOGIN, enter your account number or nickname and pin, click on
    "Statements" then "Calling Plans" and see what it shows for Active
    Additional Services,
    see if "Express Network" is listed, for example my account shows:
    Active Additional Services:
    Call Delivery - Voice Mail - IQ Service Package - CDMA Digital W/Txt Msg -
    CallerID - Message Waiting Ind - Txt Messaging: Off - New Every Two -
    Nat Mob to Mob -1000 Mins - Express Network

    See where it shows Express Network as an Active Additional Service? That was
    done automatically a few months back.

    To Answer your question, the term "Express Network - Minutes of use" is a
    DESCRIPTION, not a feature code.

    Also note (and I didn't find this out until today), if you are on the
    extended network rather than native verizon wireless (depending on your zip
    code), that option may not be available yet for that zip code.

    I just traveled from California to North Carolina and back and was able
    to always get connected with EN when on the Verizon network. Not able
    to connect with EN when in an extended network area. There were a couple
    of times when in an extended network area that no connection was
    possible.

    I had it added on a Family Share 400 plan. (Feature code 1xpp1 for me)

    I have it on my local digital choice plan and it works fine. I didnt have to
    ask for it either. I just renewed my contract after July 15 with one of the
    new plans and it was there. It works great!

    That's if they ever update the information. I changed plans a month
    ago, paid the bill over a week ago, yet they still show me on the old
    plan and with this month's bill due. It would be nice to know what's
    going on NOW, not last month. :)

    I had EN added to my SRN, so that my GIN would use the higher speed
    connection on my T720-updated-to-T730. Ever since then, my billing for
    data calls is broken BIG time; first, it showed several 300-400 minute
    data calls. That is ONE data call, 300 minutes. Data tech support told
    me that this is happening to others, and they have a team trying to
    figure out what is going on. The phone does not show these minutes (the
    T730 logs data minutes). They cleared up the airtime charges, but its
    happened again: now #MIN shows that I used 1440 minutes of peak airtime
    between Oct 7 and Oct 10! I used Mobile Web for about 5 minutes in that
    interval; no GIN, no data cable. That's 24 hours! No off-peak time:
    if I had been cloned, there would be LOTS of calls, including during
    off-peak (my old analog DPC550 was cloned several years ago, so I know
    what the pattern looks like). So I called again, and the CSR said he
    would be back in touch with me (he gave me his call center and
    extension). For small corrections, I just pay the overage and take the
    credit on the next bill, but this would be about $400 excess airtime!

    Anyone else had this happen to them? My suspicions are that somehow the EN
    system is not getting the "END" message back to the billing computer, so
    the meter just continues running until some event happens on my line,
    like getting a voice call, but I don't know why my setup would be
    different from anyone else. And this is NOT a PTT phone or account.
     
  10. Hi! I am in the NYC market. Does Express Network (EN) now comes as a
    standard feature on all America's Choice (AC) plans. It is time got the
    renewal of my plan so I'd really like like as a part of the plan.
    Also what are we billed as. I dial now 777 and qnc as password to get on the
    internet and all calls are counted as minutes of plan. Is this the same for
    EN?

    Yes, added on if you renew, same # 777 and Express Logon Userid=(phone
    number)@vzw3g.com IE 4109999999@vzw3g.com Password=vzw

    You are billed (hopefully) 0 cents for the call, but plan minutes are
    deducted.

    How do we do this at 'low speed'?
    I NEVER use my EN unless its an emergency (during the power outage
    last august. i used it to hop on for 3 minutes to check cnn.com and log
    out.)

    running lowspeed isnt a problem for me, i just dont know how to do it

    Thanks

    Try calling #min after every data call. It's not the answer, but
    it'll save you the hassle if you're right - it's a voice call.

    >but I don't know why my setup would be different from anyone else.


    "Only the Shadow knows." Maybe they put you in for the wrong feature.

    If they announce it one month and start billing the next month, it
    comes under the heading of "you were warned". If they start billing
    with no warning, it comes under the heading of "you were robbed", and
    a lot of people will see Verizon in court if Verizon decides to fight.

    There is a warning...at least through the Verizon Mobile Office
    software...that pops up before you connect to EN. It warns that you if you
    are not subscribed to the EN, you will incur higher charges for the session.

    Doesn't sound like the verizon I deal with.

    Sorry, thats a total lie, probably being spread by the competition (to work
    on verizon cutomers fears), and should probably be classified as an "urban
    legend".

    Notice you NEVER hear a persons name/id # etc that says that from verizon,
    nor EVER see anything in news releases, nor even hear it from any of the
    cell service reporters (and if you think a reporter would let a story like
    this pass.....), and if you ask any of the other thousands of customer
    support people, that's a total lie. Wait, I'll ask my roomate who is a
    verizon tech rep, yup it's bogus (he refused to give his name or employee
    id# too, just like whoever passed this rumor on). He seems to have learned
    one thing from this NG.. Lie and CYA
