« Switched Our JetPack To Verizon's New Prepaid Unlimited Data Plan | Main | Mobius Arch Loop Trail - (Alabama Hills, CA) »

Wednesday, November 14, 2018


Back in Feb '18 we changed our Verizon plan to participate in some sort of FMCA deal. I forget the details now, but it included a newer version of the JetPack for $1.

Apparently that $1 was not the full price. Just the other day I converted our post-pay plan to the pre-pay plan in order to get the unlimited data. Today I received a bill from Verizon for $133 to cover the balance of the value of the upgraded JetPack. Apparently we had been put on a two year contract with that FMCA deal (something I was not aware of) so now they want the balance of the value of the JetPack because we 'cancelled' our contract to go pre-paid.

I called about it and am currently disputing that charge because we didn't stop being customers, we just changed how we pay. I'll let you know how that goes...

That’s one of our favourite spots...so beautiful! Enjoy and safe travels.

JC, Yes, that was the "hook" for the FMCA plan - two year FMCA membership AND two year Verizon contract. It's a good plan, but having to lock into both for two years was a step we just couldn't take. I thought it was pretty clear on those commitments. Good luck in getting your refund.

Tuttle Creek is one of our favorite places along the Eastern Sierra. Just north of Manzanar is the little town of Independence. There is a wonderful museum there called Museum of the Eastern Sierra. Well worth the visit! Kearsarge Pass can be accessed just outside of Independence from the Onion Valley trailhead.

You are also traveling one of our favorite highways in America.....U.S. 395....some of the most amazing scenery, and a some great boondocking sites.
