Corporate email via Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync or Lotus Notes Traveler is included within your Share Everything data allowance ( if supported by your device) at no additional cost. Corporate email customers using BES or Good will need an additional feature for these services ($15/mo).
Important Plan Information

My Verizon Wireless
Customer Agreement

(Para una copia de este documento en espaol, visite nuestro website: vzw.com/espanol)

 

Thanks for choosing Verizon Wireless. In this Customer Agreement, you'll find important information about your Service, including our ability to make changes to your Service or this agreement's terms, our liability if things don't work as planned and how any disputes between us must be resolved in arbitration or small claims court. If you're signing up for Service for a minimum contract term, you'll also find information about that contract term and what happens if you cancel a line of Service early or don't pay on time, including the possibility of an early termination fee you may owe Verizon Wireless.

 

My Service

Your Service terms and conditions are part of this agreement. Your Plan includes your monthly allowances and features, where you can use them (your "Coverage Area"), and their monthly and pay-per-use charges. You can also subscribe to several Optional Services, like text messaging packages. Together, your Plan and any Optional Services you select are your Service. The terms and conditions for your Service can be found in the brochures that are available when you activate, or online at verizonwireless.com

 

How Do I Accept This Agreement?

You accept this agreement by:

- Agreeing in writing, by email, over the phone, or in person;

- Opening a package that says you are accepting by opening it; or

- Activating your Service.

When you accept, you're representing that you are at least 18 years old and are legally able to accept an agreement. If you're accepting for an organization, you're representing that you are authorized to bind that organization, and where the context requires, "you" means the organization. By accepting, you are agreeing to every provision of this Agreement whether or not you have read it.

If you do accept, you can cancel a line of Service within 14 days of accepting this Agreement without having to pay an early termination fee as long as you return, within the applicable return period, any equipment you purchased from us or one of our authorized agents at a discount in connection with your acceptance of this Agreement, but you'll still have to pay for your Service through that date. If you signed up for Prepaid Service, no refunds will be granted after 14 days or if your account has been activated. Your activation fee will not be refunded unless you cancel within three days of accepting.

If you change your device or receive a Service promotion, you may be required to change your Plan to one that we are currently offering at that time.

 

 

My Privacy

We collect personal information about you. We gather some information through our relationship with you, such as information about the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination and amount of your use of our telecommunications services. You can find out how we use, share and protect the information we collect about you in our Privacy Policy, available at verizon.com/privacy. By entering this Agreement, you consent to our data collection, use and sharing practices described in our Privacy Policy. We provide you with choices to limit, in certain circumstances, our use of the data we have about you. You can review these choices at verizon.com/privacy/#limits. If there are additional specific advertising and marketing practices for which your consent is necessary, we will seek your consent (such as through the privacy-related notices you receive when you purchase or use our products and services) before engaging in those practices. If you subscribe to Service for which usage charges are billed at the end of the billing period ("Postpay Service"), we may investigate your credit history at any time and share credit information about you with credit reporting agencies and other Verizon companies. If you'd like the name and address of any credit agency that gives us a credit report about you, just ask.

Many services and applications offered through your device may be provided by third parties. Some of these services and applications, which you may block or restrict at no cost, may involve charges for which you will be billed. The amount and frequency of the charges will be disclosed when you agree to the charges. Before you use, link to or download a service or application provided by a third party, you should review the terms of such service or application and applicable privacy policy. Personal information you submit may be read, collected or used by the service or application provider and/or other users of those forums. Verizon Wireless is not responsible for any third-party information, content, applications or services you access, download or use on your device. You are responsible for maintaining virus and other Internet security protections when accessing these third-party products or services. For additional information, visit the Verizon Content Policy at http://responsibility.verizon.com/contentpolicy

You consent to allow Verizon Wireless and anyone who collects on our behalf to contact you about your account status, including past due or current charges, using prerecorded calls, email and calls or messages delivered by an automatic telephone dialing system to any wireless phone number or email address you provide. Verizon Wireless will treat any email address you provide as your private email that is not accessible by unauthorized third parties. Unless you notify us that your wireless service is based in a different time zone, calls will be made to your cellular device during permitted calling hours based upon the time zone affiliated with the mobile telephone number you provide.

 

What Happens If My Postpay Service Is Canceled Before the End of My Contract Term?

If you're signing up for Postpay Service, you're agreeing to subscribe to a line of Service either on a month-to-month basis or for a minimum contract term, as shown on your receipt or order confirmation. (If your Service is suspended without billing, that time doesn't count toward completing your contract term.) Once you've completed your contract term, you'll automatically become a customer on a month-to-month basis for that line of Service. If you cancel a line of Service, or if we cancel it for good cause, during its contract term, you'll have to pay an early termination fee. If your contract term results from your purchase of an advanced device, your early termination fee will be $350 minus $10 for each full month of your contract term that you complete. Otherwise, your early termination fee will be $175 minus $5 for each full month of your contract term that you complete. Cancellations will become effective on the last day of that month's billing cycle, and you are responsible for all charges incurred until then. Also, if you bought your wireless device from an authorized agent or third-party vendor, you should check whether they charge a separate termination fee.

Can I Take My Wireless Phone Number to Another Carrier?

You may be able to take, or "port," your wireless phone number to another carrier. If you port a number from us, we'll treat it as though you asked us to cancel your Service for that number. After the porting is completed, you won't be able to use our service for that number, but you'll remain responsible for all fees and charges through the end of that billing cycle, just like any other cancellation. If you're a Prepaid customer, you won't be entitled to a refund of any balance on your account. If you port a number to us, please be aware that we may not be able to provide some services right away, such as 911 location services. You don't have any rights to your wireless phone number, except for any right you may have to port it.

 

Directory Information

We will not publish your wireless phone number in any available directory or give it to anyone for that purpose, unless you ask us to.

 

Can I Have Someone Else Manage My Postpay Account?

No problem  just tell us by phone, in person, or in writing. You can appoint someone to manage your Postpay account for a single transaction, or until you tell us otherwise. The person you appoint will be able to make changes to your account, including adding new lines of Service, buying new wireless devices, and extending your contract term. Any changes that person makes will be treated as modifications to this agreement.

 

Can Verizon Wireless Change This Agreement or My Service?

We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time, but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have Postpay Service. If you use your Service after the change takes effect, that means you're accepting the change. If you're a Postpay customer and a change to your Plan or this agreement has a material adverse effect on you, you can cancel the line of Service that has been affected within 60 days of receiving the notice with no early termination fee if we fail to negate the change after you notify us of your objection to it.

 

My Wireless Device

Your wireless device must comply with Federal Communications Commission regulations, be certified for use on our network, and be compatible with your Service. Please be aware that we may change your wireless device's software, applications or programming remotely, without notice. This could affect your stored data, or how you've programmed or use your wireless device. By activating Service that uses a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card, you agree that we own the intellectual property and software in the SIM card, that we may change the software or other data in the SIM card remotely and without notice, and that we may utilize any capacity in the SIM card for administrative, network, business and/or commercial purposes. If you bought a wireless device for Postpay Service from Verizon Wireless that doesn't use a SIM card, and you want to reprogram it for use with another wireless network, the default programming code is set to "000000" or "123456." But please note that your wireless device may not work with another wireless network, or the other wireless carrier may not accept your wireless device on its network. If you activate a wireless device for Prepaid Service, during the first six (6) months after activation, it can only be used for Prepaid Service. The iPhone 4 is configured to work only with the wireless services of Verizon Wireless and may not work on another carrier's network, even after completion of your contract term.

 

Where and How Does Verizon Wireless Service Work?

Wireless devices use radio transmissions, so unfortunately you can't get Service if your device isn't in range of a transmission signal. And please be aware that even within your Coverage Area, many things can affect the availability and quality of your Service, including network capacity, your device, terrain, buildings, foliage and weather.

 

What Charges Are Set by Verizon Wireless?

You agree to pay all access, usage and other charges that you or the user of your wireless device incurred. For Postpay Service, our charges also include Federal Universal Service, Regulatory and Administrative Charges, and we may also include other charges related to our governmental costs. We set these charges; they aren't taxes, they aren't required by law, they are not necessarily related to anything the government does, they are kept by us in whole or in part, and the amounts and what they pay for may change.

 

Government Taxes, Fees and Surcharges

You must pay all taxes, fees and surcharges set by federal, state and local governments. Please note that we may not always be able to notify you in advance of changes to these charges.

 

What Are Roaming Charges?

You're "roaming" whenever your wireless device uses a transmission site outside your Coverage Area or uses another company's transmission site. Sometimes roaming happens even when you're within your Coverage Area. There may be higher rates and extra charges (including charges for long distance, tolls or calls that don't connect) for roaming calls, depending on your Plan.

 

How Does Verizon Wireless Calculate My Charges?

For charges based on the amount of time used or data sent or received, we'll round up any fraction to the next full minute or, depending on how you're billed for data usage, the next full megabyte or gigabyte. For outgoing calls, usage time starts when you first press SEND or the call connects to a network, and for incoming calls, it starts when the call connects to a network (which may be before it rings). Usage time may end several seconds after you press END or after the call disconnects. For calls made on our network, we charge only for calls that are answered, including by machines. For Postpay Service, usage cannot always be processed right away and may be included in a later bill, but the usage will still count towards your allowance for the month when the Service was used.

 

How and When Can I Dispute Charges?

If you're a Postpay customer, you can dispute your bill within 180 days of receiving it, but unless otherwise provided by law or unless you're disputing charges because your wireless device was lost or stolen, you still have to pay all charges until the dispute is resolved. If you're a Prepaid customer, you can dispute a charge within 180 days of the date the disputed charge was incurred. YOU MAY CALL US TO DISPUTE CHARGES ON YOUR BILL OR ANY SERVICE(S) FOR WHICH YOU WERE BILLED, BUT IF YOU WISH TO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHT TO BRING AN ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS CASE REGARDING SUCH DISPUTE, YOU MUST WRITE TO US AT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE ADDRESS ON YOUR BILL, SEND AN EMAIL THROUGH THE "CONTACT US" LINK ON VERIZONWIRELESS.COM, OR SEND US A COMPLETED NOTICE OF DISPUTE FORM (AVAILABLE AT VERIZONWIRELESS.COM), WITHIN THE 180-DAY PERIOD MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOU DO NOT NOTIFY US IN WRITING OF SUCH DISPUTE WITHIN THE 180-DAY PERIOD, YOU WILL HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHT TO DISPUTE THE BILL OR SUCH SERVICE(S) AND TO BRING AN ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS CASE REGARDING ANY SUCH DISPUTE.


What Are My Rights for Dropped Calls or Interrupted Service?

If you drop a call in your Coverage Area, redial. If it's answered within 5 minutes, call us within 90 days if you're a Postpay customer, or within 45 days if you're a Prepaid customer, and we'll give you a 1-minute airtime credit. If you're a Postpay customer and you lose Service in your Coverage Area for more than 24 hours in a row and we're at fault, call us within 180 days and we'll give you a credit for the time lost. Please be aware that these are your only rights for dropped calls or interrupted Service.

 

About My Payments

If you're a Postpay customer and we don't get your payment on time, we will charge you a late fee of up to 1.5 percent per month (18 percent per year) on the unpaid balance, or a flat $5 per month, whichever is greater, if allowed by law in the state of your billing address. (If you choose another company to bill you for our Service [such as another Verizon company], late fees are set by that company or by its tariffs and may be higher than our late fees.) Late Fees are part of the rates and charges you agree to pay us. If you fail to pay on time and Verizon Wireless refers your account(s) to a third party for collection, a collection fee will be assessed and will be due at the time of the referral to the third party. The fee will be calculated at the maximum percentage permitted by applicable law, not to exceed 18 percent. We may require a deposit at the time of activation or afterward, or an increased deposit. We'll pay simple interest on any deposit at the rate the law requires. We may apply deposits or payments in any order to any amounts you owe us on any account. If your final credit balance is less than $1, we will refund it only if you ask. You may have to pay a $35 fee to re-activate Service if your Service is terminated, or a $15 fee to reconnect Service if it is interrupted for non-payment or suspended for any reason.

If you're a Prepaid customer, you may replenish your balance at any time before the expiration date by providing us with another payment. Your balance may not exceed $1,000 and you may be prevented from replenishing if your balance reaches $1,000. We will suspend service when your account reaches the expiration date and any unused balance will be forfeited.

We may charge you up to $25 for any returned check.

 

What If My Wireless Device Gets Lost or Stolen?

We're here to help. It's important that you notify us right away, so we can suspend your Service to keep someone else from using it. If you're a Postpay customer and your wireless device is used after the loss or theft but before you report it, and you want a credit for any charges for that usage, we're happy to review your account activity and any other information you'd like us to consider. Keep in mind that you may be held responsible for the charges if you delayed reporting the loss or theft without good reason, but you don't have to pay any charges you dispute while they are being investigated. If we haven't given you a courtesy suspension of recurring monthly charges during the past year, we'll give you one for 30 days or until you replace or recover your wireless device, whichever comes first.


What Are Verizon Wireless' Rights to Limit or End Service or End This Agreement?

We can, without notice, limit, suspend or end your Service or any agreement with you for any good cause, including, but not limited to: (1) if you: (a) breach this agreement; (b) resell your Service; (c) use your Service for any illegal purpose, including use that violates trade and economic sanctions and prohibitions promulgated by any US governmental agency; (d) install, deploy or use any regeneration equipment or similar mechanism (for example,
a repeater) to originate, amplify, enhance, retransmit or regenerate an RF signal without our permission; (e) steal from or lie to us; or, if you're a Postpay customer, (f) do not pay your bill on time; (g) incur charges larger than a required deposit or billing limit, or materially in excess of your monthly access charges (even if we haven't yet billed the charges); (h) provide credit information we can't verify; or (i) are unable to pay us or go bankrupt; or (2) if you, any user of your device or any line of service on your account, or any account manager on your account: (a) threaten, harass, or use vulgar and/or inappropriate language toward our representatives; (b) interfere with our operations; (c) "spam," or engage in other abusive messaging or calling; (d) modify your device from its manufacturer's specifications; or (e) use your Service in a way that negatively affects our network or other customers. We can also temporarily limit your Service for any operational or governmental reason.

 

Am I Eligible for Special Discounts?

If you're a Postpay customer, you may be eligible for a discount if you are and remain affiliated with an organization that has an agreement with us. Unless your discount is through a government employee discount program, we may share certain information about your Service (including your name, your wireless telephone number and your total monthly charges) with your organization from time to time to make sure you're still eligible. We may adjust or remove your discount according to your organization's agreement with us, and remove your discount if your eligibility ends or your contract term expires. In any case, this won't be considered to have a material adverse effect on you.

 

Disclaimer of Warranties

We make no representations or warranties, express or implied, including, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, about your Service, your wireless device, or any applications you access through your wireless device. We do not warrant that your wireless device will work perfectly or will not need occasional upgrades or modifications, or that it will not be negatively affected by network-related modifications, upgrades or similar activity. If you download or use applications, services or software provided by third parties (including voice applications), 911 or E911, or other calling functionality, may work differently than services offered by us, or may not work at all. Please review all terms and conditions of such third-party products.

Please be aware that if you activated your wireless device through our Open Development program, we can't vouch for the device's call quality or overall functionality.

 

Waivers and Limitations of Liability

You and Verizon Wireless both agree to limit claims against each other for damages or other monetary relief to direct damages. This limitation and waiver will apply regardless of the theory of liability. That means neither of us will try to get any indirect, special, consequential, treble or punitive damages from the other. This limitation and waiver also applies if you bring a claim against one of our suppliers, to the extent we would be required to indemnify the supplier for the claim. You agree we aren't responsible for problems caused by you or others, or by any act of God. You also agree we aren't liable for missed or deleted voice mails or other messages, or for any information (like pictures) that gets lost or deleted if we work on your device. If another wireless carrier is involved in any problem (for example, while you're roaming), you also agree to any limitations of liability that it imposes.

 

How Do I Resolve Disputes with Verizon Wireless?

We hope to make you a happy customer, but if there's an issue that needs to be resolved, this section outlines what's expected of both of us.

You and Verizon Wireless both agree to resolve disputes only by arbitration or in small claims court. There's no judge or jury in arbitration, and the procedures may be different, but an arbitrator can award you the same damages and relief, and must honor the same terms in this agreement, as a court would. If the law allows for an award of attorneys' fees, an arbitrator can award them too. We also both agree that:

(1) THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT APPLIES TO THIS AGREEMENT. EXCEPT FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT CASES THAT QUALIFY, ANY DISPUTE THAT IN ANY WAY RELATES TO OR ARISES OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR FROM ANY EQUIPMENT, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES YOU RECEIVE FROM US (OR FROM ANY ADVERTISING FOR ANY SUCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICES) WILL BE RESOLVED BY ONE OR MORE NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS BEFORE THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION ("AAA") OR BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU ("BBB"). YOU CAN ALSO BRING ANY ISSUES YOU MAY HAVE TO THE ATTENTION OF FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND IF THE LAW ALLOWS, THEY CAN SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US FOR YOU.

(2) Unless you and Verizon Wireless agree otherwise, the arbitration will take place in the county of your billing address. For claims over $10,000, the AAA's Wireless Industry Arbitration ("WIA") rules will apply. in such cases, the loser can ask for a panel of three new arbitrators to review the award. For claims of $10,000 or less, the party bringing the claim can choose either the AAA's WIA rules or the BBB's rules for binding arbitration or, alternatively, can bring an individual action in small claims court. You can get procedures, rules and fee information from the AAA (www.adr.org), the BBB (www.bbb.org) or from us. For claims of $10,000 or less, you can choose whether you'd like the arbitration carried out based only on documents submitted to the arbitrator, or by a hearing in person or by phone.

(3) THIS AGREEMENT DOESN'T ALLOW CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE AAA OR BBB PROCEDURES OR RULES WOULD. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD MONEY OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL THEORIES OF LIABILITY OR PRAYERS FOR RELIEF MAY BE MAINTAINED IN ANY ARBITRATION HELD UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

(4) If either of us intends to seek arbitration under this agreement, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration. Notice to Verizon Wireless should be sent to Verizon Wireless Dispute Resolution Manager, One Verizon Way, VC52N061, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920. The Notice must describe the nature of the claim and the relief being sought. If we are unable to resolve our dispute within 30 days, either party may then proceed to file a claim for arbitration. WE'LL PAY ANY FILING FEE THAT THE AAA OR BBB CHARGES YOU FOR ARBITRATION OF THE DISPUTE. IF YOU PROVIDE US WITH SIGNED WRITTEN NOTICE THAT YOU CANNOT PAY THE FILING FEE, VERIZON WIRELESS WILL PAY THE FEE DIRECTLY TO THE AAA OR THE BBB. IF THAT ARBITRATION PROCEEDS, WE'LL ALSO PAY ANY ADMINISTRATIVE AND ARBITRATOR FEES CHARGED LATER, AS WELL AS FOR ANY APPEAL TO A PANEL OF THREE NEW ARBITRATORS (IF THE ARBITRATION AWARD IS APPEALABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT).

(5) WE ALSO OFFER CUSTOMERS THE OPTION OF PARTICIPATING IN A FREE INTERNAL MEDIATION PROGRAM. THIS PROGRAM IS ENTIRELY VOLUNTARY AND DOES NOT AFFECT EITHER PARTY'S RIGHTS IN ANY OTHER ASPECT OF THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES. IN OUR VOLUNTARY MEDIATION PROGRAM, WE WILL ASSIGN AN EMPLOYEE WHO'S NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE DISPUTE TO HELP BOTH SIDES REACH AN AGREEMENT. THAT PERSON HAS ALL THE RIGHTS AND PROTECTIONS OF A MEDIATOR AND THE PROCESS HAS ALL OF THE PROTECTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH MEDIATION. FOR EXAMPLE, NOTHING SAID IN THE MEDIATION CAN BE USED LATER IN AN ARBITRATION OR LAWSUIT. IF YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW MORE, PLEASE CONTACT US AT VERIZONWIRELESS.COM OR THROUGH CUSTOMER SERVICE. IF YOU'D LIKE TO START THE MEDIATION PROCESS, PLEASE GO TO VERIZONWIRELESS.COM OR CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR A NOTICE OF DISPUTE FORM TO FILL OUT, AND MAIL, FAX OR EMAIL IT TO US ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTIONS ON THE FORM.

(6) WE MAY, BUT ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO, MAKE A WRITTEN SETTLEMENT OFFER ANYTIME BEFORE ARBITRATION BEGINS. THE AMOUNT OR TERMS OF ANY SETTLEMENT OFFER MAY NOT BE DISCLOSED TO THE ARBITRATOR UNTIL AFTER THE ARBITRATOR ISSUES AN AWARD ON THE CLAIM. IF YOU DON'T ACCEPT THE OFFER AND THE ARBITRATOR AWARDS YOU AN AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT'S MORE THAN OUR OFFER BUT LESS THAN $5000, OR IF WE DON'T MAKE YOU AN OFFER AND THE ARBITRATOR AWARDS YOU ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY BUT LESS THAN $5000, THEN WE AGREE TO PAY YOU $5000 INSTEAD OF THE AMOUNT AWARDED. IN THAT CASE WE ALSO AGREE TO PAY ANY REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES AND EXPENSES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE LAW REQUIRES IT FOR YOUR CASE. IF THE ARBITRATOR AWARDS YOU MORE THAN $5000, THEN WE WILL PAY YOU THAT AMOUNT.

(7) An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case; it can't be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself.

(8) If for some reason the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in subsection (3) cannot be enforced, then the agreement to arbitrate will not apply.

(9) IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AND VERIZON WIRELESS AGREE THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND VERIZON WIRELESS UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT IN ANY WAY. IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, THIS PARAGRAPH MAY BE FILED TO SHOW A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT.

 

About This Agreement

If we don't enforce our rights under this agreement in one instance, that doesn't mean we won't or can't enforce those rights in any other instance. You cannot assign this agreement or any of your rights or duties under it without our permission. However, we may assign this agreement or any debt you owe us without notifying you. If you're a Postpay customer, please note that many notices we send to you will show up as messages on your monthly bill. If you have online billing, those notices will be deemed received by you when your online bill is available for viewing. If you get a paper bill, those notices will be deemed received by you three days after we mail the bill to you. If we send other notices to you, they will be considered received immediately if we send them to your wireless device, or to any email or fax number you've given us, or after three days if we mail them to your billing address. If you need to send notices to us, please send them to the customer service address on your latest bill.

If you're a Prepaid customer and we send notices to you, they will be considered received immediately if we send them to your wireless device or to any email or fax number you've given us, or if we post them as a pre-call notification on your Service, or after three days if we mail them to the most current address we have for you. If you need to send notices to us, please send them to the Customer Service Prepaid address at verizonwireless.com/contactus

If any part of this agreement, including anything regarding the arbitration process (except for the prohibition on class arbitrations as explained in part 8 of the dispute resolution section above), is ruled invalid, that part may be removed from this agreement.

This agreement and the documents it incorporates form the entire agreement between us. You can't rely on any other documents, or on what's said by any sales or customer service representatives, and you have no other rights regarding Service or this agreement. This agreement isn't for the benefit of any third party except our parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, and predecessors and successors in interest. Except where we've agreed otherwise elsewhere in this agreement, this agreement and any disputes covered by it are governed by federal law and the laws of the state encompassing the area code of your wireless phone number when you accepted this agreement, without regard to the conflicts of laws and rules of that state.

Verizon Wireless Terms & Conditions Of Service

Equipment Discount Information

An equipment purchase discount of $150 has been provided to the customer in exchange for activating and maintaining a new, non-substitute Wireless mobile number on any commercially published rate plan for a minimum of 181 consecutive days. Should this number disconnect (permanently or temporarily, except based on the fault of the carrier), or if the customer's wireless service rate plan is changed to one of a lower service rate plan, within the same time period (181 consecutive days), this discount will be null and void and the customer must reimburse this Authorized Wireless Representative $150. The customer herein provides authorization for the $150 to be charged to the customer's credit card without need for further approval; provided, however, the $150 will only be charged if the monthly service rate is changed to one of a lower monthly service rate or if the wireless phone bill is not paid for 181 consecutive days.

VERIZON WIRELESS CUSTOMER OVERVIEW

YOUR CUSTOMER AGREEMENT
Your Customer Agreement with us starts when you accept it. You accept when you give us a written or electronic signature, OR tell us orally or electronically that you accept, OR activate your service through your wireless phone, OR open a package that says you are accepting by opening it, OR change your agreement, extend your contract term, OR accept a new promotional offer. If you don't want to be bound by the Customer Agreement, do not do any of the things listed above.

YOUR CALLING PLAN
Your calling plan is part of your Customer Agreement. Be sure to read it carefully. It determines your rates and charges, such as your monthly access, the number of minutes included in your monthly allowance, and the rate per minute for additional minutes, roaming, and long distance service, if applicable. At any time, you have the option to change to any qualifying calling plan, at no additional fee, without extending the minimum term of your Customer Agreement. (You may have to purchase new equipment to be able to take advantage of a new calling plan.) To take advantage of promotional offers, including equipment upgrades, you will be required to extend the minimum term of your Customer Agreement.

AGREEMENT TERMS AND EARLY TERMINATION
Your minimum term under your Customer Agreement will be for the period of time required by your calling plan or promotion, usually one or two years. If you cancel during this term, a $175 early termination fee will apply. After your minimum term, your Customer Agreement will convert to a month-to-month term.

NIGHT AND WEEKEND HOURS
Your calling plan may have different rates depending on whether you make or receive calls on weekdays, at nights, on weekends or holidays. Airtime minutes may be classified as peak or off-peak, according to the time and day. Please refer to your calling plan brochure for the night and weekend hours in your area, if applicable.

ROAMING
You are "roaming" whenever you make or receive calls using a transmission site outside your home airtime rate area, or using another carrier's transmission site. The ROAM INDICATOR on your handset will assist you in determining when you are roaming. Long distance, roaming and other additional charges may apply to calls you place or receive while roaming. The billing for roaming minutes on another wireless carrier may be delayed depending on when we are billed. These minutes may be applied against your monthly allowance in the month they appear on your bill and not during the month of usage, and may result in charges in addition to your monthly access charge.

Directory Assistance/411Connect SM
Enhanced directory assistance is available through 411 Connect, an exclusive directory, information, and call completion service for Verizon Wireless customers. A live operator will assist you when you request numbers, addresses and information for anything from restaurants and movies to the nearest florist. A per-call fee plus airtime and other charges apply. Simply dial 411 and press SEND.

READING YOUR BILL
Bill Cycle
This is the date your bill is created. Except as noted in the Customer Agreement, your calls made within the bill cycle start and end dates will be included in your bill. Billing for certain home and/or roaming calls and related charges may be delayed to a later bill. These calls may be applied against your airtime allowance in the month they are billed, rather than the month you made or received the call. This may result in charges beyond your expected charges in the later month.

Your First Bill
On your first bill you may be billed a prorated portion of your Monthly Access Charge (calculated from the date you begin service to your first bill cycle start date), plus the next month's service charge. Because of this proration, your first bill may be larger than subsequent bills. In addition, your first bill will include any applicable activation fees, feature charges, and equipment and accessory purchases.

Monthly Access
This is your monthly access or service charge based on your particular calling plan. Paying this charge gives you access to the Verizon Wireless network. It is usually billed one month in advance.

Monthly Home Airtime Allowance
Your calling plan may specify a set amount of included minutes for use in your home airtime rate area. Unused airtime cannot be carried forward or credited against the next month's usage. Various fees, toll charges, and regional calling and wireless long distance charges are not included in the home airtime allowance and will be charged separately.

Promotional Minutes
The amount of promotional minutes available in your first month is determined by date of activation in relation to bill cycle start and end dates.

Chargeable Time
We measure your calls in full minutes. That means partial minutes are rounded up to the next full minute. For example, a 15-second call is billed as one full minute. A one-minute, 20-second call is billed as two full minutes. Time starts when you first press "SEND" or the call connects to the system. Time stops when your call disconnects from the system, which may be a few seconds after you press "END" or the call is otherwise terminated. On incoming calls, charges begin when the call connects to the system, which may be before the phone rings or before you answer it. You are not charged for unconnected calls, busy signals and unanswered calls that ring for less than 60 seconds. You may be billed at normal airtime rates for calls that ring for 60 seconds or more in certain areas, even if such calls are busy or unanswered. If a device such as an answering machine or fax machine "answers" the incoming call automatically, the call may be considered completed and billable.

Home Airtime Rate Area
Your home airtime rate area is a geographic area where your home airtime rates apply. It may be local, regional or national. The calls you make or receive inside this area are billed at your home airtime rates without incurring roaming charges. Depending on your calling plan, long distance or toll charges may still apply inside your home airtime rate area. If you make calls outside this area, you may be charged more per minute for airtime. In certain instances you may incur toll, regional calling, or wireless long distance charges on calls made within your home airtime rate area. Home airtime rate areas may also be referred to as home service areas or home calling areas.

Toll, Regional Calling and Wireless Long Distance
Toll, regional calling, and wireless long distance charges are in addition to home airtime charges for your calls. You will incur toll, regional calling, or wireless long distance charges when you are in a wireless local calling area and place a call to a number outside this area. Your local calling area is not the same as your home airtime rate area and may, in fact, be smaller. As with your home phone, your local calling area is defined by a group of local phone exchanges (the area code plus the three digits of a phone number). As with all wireless calls, these charges are based on your location at the start of the call and do not change even though you may move during the call.

Other Fees, Taxes and Surcharges
Your bill will include federal, state, and where applicable, local taxes. It may also include surcharges, governmental fees and similar assessments, including fees such as Universal Service and Regulatory Fees. These charges, including taxes and surcharges on roaming, may be based on the rates applicable to the residential street address or the primary business street address you provided to us. This address will be considered the "place of primary use," provided it is within our licensed service area.

Caller I.D.
Please note that your telephone number and account name may appear when you call someone who uses caller identification. You can block this "Caller ID" for most calls by dialing *67 before each call or by ordering per-line blocking, where available. (Dial *82 to unblock.)

DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND INDEPENDENT ARBITRATION
Most customer concerns can be resolved through our Customer Service Department. If, however, you have an issue that cannot be resolved without third-party intervention, Verizon Wireless will arbitrate with you before the American Arbitration Association or the Better Business Bureau. This means that all such customer disputes (except perhaps certain small claims) will be resolved through arbitration, not with a judge or jury.

Please note that we reserve the right to make changes to the Customer Agreement as well as to our business practices and procedures. This Overview is for information purposes and is not a contract. It does not replace or supplement the Customer Agreement.

VERIZON WIRELESS CUSTOMER AGREEMENT

      We're Verizon Wireless. Please carefully read this agreement, including the calling plan or plans you've chosen.

This agreement covers important topics such as when it begins, how long it lasts, fees for early termination and late payments, our rights to change this agreement and your wireless service, limitations of liability, use of information about you, and settlement of disputes by arbitration instead of in court. If you accept this agreement, it will apply to all your wireless service from us, including all lines in service from us and all your existing calling plans. Its provisions also apply to any other transactions or agreements between us. To the extent their terms and conditions conflict with this agreement, this agreement will govern.

Your Calling Plans
YOUR CALLING PLANS BECOME PART OF THIS AGREEMENT. The prices you pay, including activation fees, monthly access fees, monthly minutes of airtime included with an access fee, prices for additional minutes, roaming charges, and any per-minute charges for long distance service from us, may depend in part on how long-the minimum term-you're agreeing in advance to do business with us. Calling plans describe these prices and your minimum term.

Your Rights To Refuse Or Cancel This Agreement
THIS AGREEMENT STARTS WHEN YOU ACCEPT. Paragraphs marked "8" continue after it ends. You accept when you do any of the following things after an opportunity to review this agreement:

Give us a written or electronic signature;
Tell us orally or electronically that you accept;
Activate your service through your wireless phone;
Open a package that says you are accepting by opening it; or
Use your service after making any change or addition when we've told you that the change or addition requires acceptance.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT, DON'T DO ANY OF THESE THINGS. You can cancel (if you're a new customer) or go back to the provisions of your former customer agreement (if you're already a customer) without additional fees if you tell us (and return to us in good condition any wireless phone you got from us with your new service) WITHIN 15 DAYS of accepting. You'll still be responsible through that date for the new service and any calls using it.

Termination Fees And Your Rights To Change Or End This Agreement
Except as explicitly permitted by this agreement, you must maintain service with us for your minimum term plus any additional time required by any promotions you accept. IF YOU END YOUR SERVICE SOONER, OR WE TERMINATE YOUR SERVICE FOR GOOD CAUSE, YOU MUST PAY UP TO $175 PER WIRELESS PHONE NUMBER AS AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE. Periods of suspension of service don't count toward any minimum term. After your minimum term, you'll become a month-to-month customer under this agreement and can end it at any time by giving us notice. If federal law requires us to let you keep your wireless phone number after termination, we may charge a fee. If at any time you change your service, you'll be subject to any requirements, such as a new minimum term, we set for that change.

Our Rights To Make Changes
Your service is subject to our business policies, practices, and procedures, which we can change without notice. WE CAN ALSO CHANGE PRICES AND ANY OTHER TERMS IN THIS AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME BY GIVING YOU WRITTEN NOTICE PRIOR TO THE BILLING PERIOD IN WHICH THE CHANGES WOULD GO INTO EFFECT. IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE YOUR SERVICE AFTER THAT POINT, YOU'RE ACCEPTING THE CHANGES. IF THE CHANGES HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE EFFECT ON YOU, HOWEVER, YOU CAN END THE AFFECTED SERVICE, WITHOUT ANY EARLY TERMINATION FEE, JUST BY CALLING US WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER THE FIRST BILL WHEN THE CHANGES GO INTO EFFECT.

Your Wireless Phone
Your wireless phone is any device equipped to receive our wireless voice or data service. It must comply with Federal Communications Commission regulations and be compatible with our network and your calling plan. Whether you buy your wireless phone through us or through someone else is entirely your choice. We may change a wireless phone's software or programming over the air without notice. This might affect data stored on your wireless phone, or the way you've programmed it. Your wireless phone may also contain software that prevents it from being used with any other company's wireless service, even if you leave us.

Your Wireless Phone Number And Caller ID
You don't have any rights in any personal identification number, e-mail address, or identifier we assign you. (We'll tell you if we decide to change or reassign them.) The same is true of your wireless phone number, except for any rights federal law grants you. Your wireless phone number and name may show up when you call someone. You can block this "Caller ID" for most calls by dialing *67 before each call, or by ordering per-line call blocking (dialing *82 to unblock) where it's available. You can't block Caller ID to some numbers, such as toll-free numbers. Although it's illegal for unauthorized people to intercept your calls, such interceptions can occur. We may also monitor or record our calls with you for training or quality assurance.

How Service Works
Wireless phones use radio transmissions, so we can't provide service when your wireless phone isn't in range of one of our transmission sites, or a transmission site of another company that's agreed to carry our customers' calls, or if there isn't sufficient network capacity available at that moment. There are places, particularly in remote areas, with no service at all. Weather, topography, buildings, your wireless phone, and other conditions we don't control may also cause dropped calls or other problems.

Different Kinds Of Charges and Surcharges We Set
You agree to pay all access, usage, and other charges and surcharges we bill you, even if you weren't the user of your wireless phone and didn't authorize its use. You may have to pay a fee to begin service or reconnect suspended service. Usage charges may vary depending on where, when, and how you call. We may charge higher airtime rates for calls made and received on our network outside your calling plan's home airtime rate area. You also have a local calling area (which may be different than your home airtime rate area). When you call from inside a local calling area to somewhere outside of it, or call from anywhere outside a local calling area, there may be toll, regional calling, or long distance charges in addition to airtime. (We provide or select the long distance service for calls on our network.) When you make a call inside your local calling area that uses a local phone company's lines (for example, a call to a typical home phone number), there may be a handling fee called a landline or connection fee. We charge airtime for most calls, including toll free and operator assisted calls. Additional features or services such as time, weather, operator or directory assistance, call dialing, calling card use, call forwarding, data calls, automatic call delivery, voice mail, Roadside Assistance, text messaging, and Mobile Web may have additional charges. We also charge monthly fees (such as universal service and regulatory fees) related to our governmental costs. These recurring fees aren't required by law and are subject to change.

Taxes And Surcharges We Don't Set
You agree to pay all taxes, surcharges, and fees set by the government. We may not always give advance notice of changes to these items. If you're exempt from some taxes, we need your exemption certificates. You agree to pay for any filings we make related to your exemptions.

Roaming And Roaming Charges
You're "roaming" whenever you make or receive a call using a transmission site outside your home airtime rate area, or using another company's transmission site. Your wireless phone may sometimes connect to and roam on another company's network even when you're near our transmission sites. There may be extra charges (including long distance or toll charges) and higher rates for calls made or received while roaming, depending on your calling plan.

Cumulative Charges

On any call you make or receive, a number of the different kinds of charges described above may apply. Charges may also apply to two or more calls simultaneously if you use call waiting, call forwarding, or three way calling.

Your Bill
Your bill is our notice to you of your fees and charges and other important information. You should read everything you receive with your bill. We bill applicable usage charges after calls are made or received. We bill some access fees and other charges in advance under some calling plans. If you choose internet billing (where available), you waive any right to paper bills or notices. If your calling plan doesn't include detailed billing, we may charge you for that service if you choose it. We may charge a fee for a bill copy or reprint.

How We Calculate Your Bill
Your bill reflects the fees and charges in effect under your calling plan at the time they're incurred. You can dispute your bill, but only within 90 days of receiving it. You must still pay any disputed charges until the dispute is resolved. Usage charges may vary by location based on where your wireless phone is when the call starts. If a charge depends on an amount of time used, we'll round up any fraction of a minute to the next full minute unless your calling plan says otherwise. Time starts when you first press "SEND" or the call connects to a network on outgoing calls, and when the call connects to a network (which may be before it rings) on incoming calls. Time may end several seconds after you press "END", or after the call otherwise disconnects. We bill for calls that connect, including calls answered by machines. In some areas we also bill for uncompleted calls that ring for a minute or more. Billing for roaming and any related charges may be delayed depending on when third parties bill us. Roaming airtime may be applied in the month it appears on your bill against airtime included in your calling plan for that month, rather than against airtime included in your calling plan for the month when you actually made or received the call. This may result in charges beyond your expected charges in the later month.

Your Rights For Dropped Calls Or Interrupted Service
If you get disconnected by our network from a call in your home airtime rate area, redial. If the same number answers within 5 minutes, call us within 90 days and we'll give you a 1 minute airtime credit. If service is interrupted in your home airtime rate area for more than 24 hours in a row due to our fault, call us within 90 days and we'll give you a pro rata daily credit, up to your monthly access charge, for that period. These are your only rights for dropped calls or interrupted service.

Payments, Deposits, Credit Cards, And Checks
Payment is due in full as stated on your bill. IF WE DON'T RECEIVE PAYMENT IN FULL WHEN DUE, WE MAY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CHARGE A LATE FEE OF UP TO 1 PERCENT A MONTH (18 PERCENT ANNUALLY), OR A FLAT $5 A MONTH, WHICHEVER IS GREATER, ON UNPAID BALANCES. WE MAY ALSO CHARGE FOR ANY COLLECTION AGENCY FEES BILLED TO US FOR TRYING TO COLLECT FROM YOU. We may require an advance deposit (or an increased deposit) from you. We'll pay simple interest on any deposit at the rate the law requires. Please retain your evidence of deposit. You agree that we can apply deposits, payments, or prepayments in any order to any amounts you owe us on any account. You can't use a deposit to pay any bill unless we agree. We won't honor limiting notations you make on or with your checks. We may charge you up to $25 for any returned check, depending on applicable law. We refund final credit balances of less than one dollar only upon request.

If Someone Steals Your Wireless Phone
If someone steals your wireless phone, notify us, provide us with any documentation (such as a police report) we request, and we'll suspend your service for up to 30 days, or until you replace or recover your wireless phone, whichever comes first. Until you notify us, you're still responsible for all fees and charges.

Our Rights To Limit Or End Service Or This Agreement
You agree not to use (or to permit your wireless phone to be used) for any purpose that's illegal or not allowed by this agreement. WE CAN, WITHOUT NOTICE, LIMIT, SUSPEND, OR END YOUR SERVICE OR ANY AGREEMENT WITH YOU FOR THIS OR ANY OTHER GOOD CAUSE, including, but not limited to: (a) paying late more than once in any 12 months; (b) incurring charges larger than a required deposit or billing limit (even if we haven't yet billed the charges); (c) verbally or physically abusing our employees or agents; (d) lying to us; (e) interfering with network, customer service, or business operations; (f) becoming insolvent or going bankrupt; (g) breaching this agreement; (h) "spamming", "mail bombing", or other abusive messaging; (i) modifying your wireless phone from its manufacturer's specifications; (j) providing credit information we can't verify; (k) using your service in a way that adversely affects service to other customers; or (l) allowing anyone to steal or tamper with your wireless phone number. We can also temporarily limit your service for any business or governmental reason.

Directories And Your Privacy
Except as follows, we won't share personal information about you with others without your permission. We have a duty under federal law to protect the confidentiality of information about the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination, and amount of your use of our service, together with similar information on your bills. (This doesn't include your name, address, and wireless number. Unless you arrange otherwise with us and pay any required fee, we may list them in a public directory. We aren't responsible for mistakes in the listings.) We can, however, share and use this information as required by law, by legal process, by exigent circumstances, or to protect ourselves. We can also use this information to communicate with you about goods and services related to the products and services you already buy from us, and we can share it with our affiliates when related to goods and services you already buy from both us and our affiliates. You can call us any time if you do not wish us to use this information to communicate about such other goods and services with you or you do not wish us to share this information with our affiliates. In addition, you've authorized us to investigate your credit history at any time and to share credit information about you with credit reporting agencies. If you ask, we'll tell you the name and address of any credit agency that gives us a credit report about you.

Disclaimer Of Warranties
WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE CONCERNING YOUR SERVICE OR YOUR WIRELESS PHONE. WE CAN'T PROMISE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE SERVICE AND DON'T AUTHORIZE ANYONE TO MAKE ANY WARRANTIES ON OUR BEHALF. THIS DOESN'T DEPRIVE YOU OF ANY WARRANTY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST ANYONE ELSE.

Waivers And Limitations Of Liability
UNLESS THE LAW FORBIDS IT IN ANY PARTICULAR CASE, WE EACH AGREE TO LIMIT CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES OR OTHER MONETARY RELIEF AGAINST EACH OTHER TO DIRECT DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION AND WAIVER WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, BREACH OF CONTRACT, PERSONAL INJURY, PRODUCTS LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER THEORY. THIS MEANS THAT NEITHER OF US WILL CLAIM OR SEEK ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, TREBLE, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES FROM THE OTHER. You agree we aren't liable for problems caused by you or a third party; by buildings, hills, network congestion, tunnels, weather, or other things we don't control; or by any act of God. If another wireless carrier is involved in any problem (for example, while you roam), you also agree to any limitations of liability in its favor that it imposes.


Dispute Resolution And Mandatory Arbitration
INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, WE EACH AGREE TO SETTLE DISPUTES (EXCEPT CERTAIN SMALL CLAIMS) ONLY BY ARBITRATION. THE RULES IN ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT. THERE'S NO JUDGE OR JURY, AND REVIEW IS LIMITED, BUT AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF, AND MUST HONOR THE SAME LIMITATIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT, AS A COURT WOULD. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW WE EACH AGREE THAT:

1. THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT APPLIES TO THIS AGREEMENT. ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR ANY PRIOR AGREEMENT FOR WIRELESS SERVICE WITH US OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, OR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PROVIDED UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR SUCH A PRIOR AGREEMENT, OR ANY ADVERTISING FOR SUCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, WILL BE SETTLED BY ONE OR MORE NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS BEFORE THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION ("AAA") OR BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU ("BBB") AS DESCRIBED BELOW. (IF YOUR LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT OFFERS ARBITRATION, YOU ALSO USE THAT PROCESS FOR ANY DISPUTE THAT QUALIFIES.) THIS DOESN'T CHANGE YOUR SUBSTANTIVE RIGHTS, JUST POTENTIAL FORUMS FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES. IN ADDITION, YOU CAN STILL BRING ANY ISSUES YOU MAY HAVE TO THE ATTENTION OF APPROPRIATE FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND THEY CAN STILL, IF THE LAW ALLOWS, SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US ON YOUR BEHALF.

2. FOR CLAIMS OVER $10,000, THE AAA'S WIRELESS INDUSTRY ARBITRATION ("WIA") RULES WILL APPLY. FOR CLAIMS BETWEEN $2,500 AND $10,000, THE AAA'S ARBITRATION RULES FOR RESOLUTION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES ("CONSUMER RULES"), WHICH INCLUDE A SMALL CLAIMS COURT OPTION, WILL APPLY. FOR CLAIMS UNDER $2,500, THE COMPLAINING PARTY CAN CHOOSE EITHER THE CONSUMER RULES OR THE BBB'S RULES FOR BINDING ARBITRATION. AN ARBITRATOR MAY, UNDER ANY OF THESE RULES, REQUIRE EACH OF US TO EXCHANGE RELEVANT EVIDENCE IN ADVANCE. LARGE/COMPLEX CASES UNDER THE WIA RULES, THE ARBITRATORS MUST APPLY THE FEDERAL RULES OF EVIDENCE AND THE LOSER MAY HAVE THE AWARD REVIEWED BY A PANEL OF 3 NEW ARBITRATORS.

3. YOU CAN OBTAIN RULES AND FEE INFORMATION FROM THE AAA (www.adr.org), THE BBB (www.bbb.org) OR FROM US. IF YOU CAN'T PAY THE REQUIRED ARBITRATION FEES, IF ANY, THERE ARE FEE WAIVER PROGRAMS. EVEN IF YOU DON'T QUALIFY FOR A FEE WAIVER, WE'LL PAY ALL BUT $100 OF ANY COMBINED FEES YOU'D BE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR FILING AND A FIRST DAY OF ARBITRATION IF YOU COMPLETE OUR MEDIATION PROGRAM. MEDIATION IS A PROCESS FOR MUTUALLY RESOLVING DISPUTES. A MEDIATOR CAN HELP PARTIES REACH AGREEMENT, BUT DOESN'T DECIDE THEIR ISSUES. IN OUR MEDIATION PROGRAM, WE'LL ASSIGN SOMEONE (WHO MAY BE FROM OUR COMPANY) NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE DISPUTE TO MEDIATE. THAT PERSON WILL HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS AND PROTECTIONS OF A MEDIATOR. NOTHING SAID IN THE MEDIATION CAN BE USED IN A LATER ARBITRATION OR LAWSUIT. COMPLETING THE MEDIATION PROGRAM MEANS PARTICIPATING IN GOOD FAITH IN AT LEAST ONE TELEPHONIC MEDIATION SESSION. YOU CAN CONTACT US AT www.verizonwireless.com OR THROUGH CUSTOMER SERVICE TO FIND OUT MORE.

4. ONLY AN ARBITRATOR CAN DECIDE WHETHER AN ISSUE IS ARBITRABLE. AN ARBITRATOR CAN ALLOCATE THE FEES AND COSTS OF ARBITRATION IN AN AWARD. IF AN APPLICABLE STATUTE PROVIDES FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEY'S FEES, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD THEM, TOO. ANY ARBITRATION AWARD MADE AFTER COMPLETION OF AN ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND MAY BE CONFIRMED IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. AN AWARD AND ANY JUDGMENT CONFIRMING IT ONLY APPLIES TO THE ARBITRATION IN WHICH IT WAS AWARDED AND CAN'T BE USED IN ANY OTHER CASE EXCEPT TO ENFORCE THE AWARD ITSELF.

5.
IF FOR SOME REASON THESE ARBITRATION REQUIREMENTS DON'T APPLY, WE EACH WAIVE ANY TRIAL BY JURY.
