This pays for shipping the equipment both ways (+) a small profit for Verizon.

I beleive that some cell phone providers are charging upgrade fees as well when you upgrade your phone.

So unless you want to keep jumping providers or not get new functionality, you are stucking paying upgrade fees.

Call them. Tell them you want to reduce your service to just FIOS internet and you will be getting Genie from another provider with 5 shows at once, blah, blah and all for free. If you are near your contract renewal they will eave your fees. If they don't, go to the other providers.
