What is "Transaction Clearing?
I got my bill today with a new charge of $8.43. I have no idea what it is nor has the two hours on-line resolved the question.
In December I signed up to try the Freedom (hehe).... it was a promotion of about $40.00 per month. After 5 months I canceled because every month (after an hour or more on the phone) I was promised the bill would get straighted up. But every month it kept showing a charge of 60+ per month, plus the balance of the previous month (though I paid the correct amount every single month) I finally had to just give up because things like this drive me nuts. I like to pay my bills on time and I like the person or company at the other end to do there part in keeping it straight. Verizon can't seam to do this. (For the record neither can Charter communications - THEY can not send you a bill or invoice IF you pay two months in advance....!!!!). I also did not like having No control over the voice mail.
Anyway enough venting about that stuff - someone please just tell me what in the world the charge for Transaction Clearing "infobilling set up fee" in the amount of $8.43 is for?
-While I am here, Does anyone know why I couldn't just type that into the search field an the verizon web and have some kind of explanation come up?

Thanks for the information, Hopefully you are correct. I will call them (both) tomorrow and find out for sure. I haven't filled out any thing that I can think o of that would have caused this bill, but who knows.
I can not find (on line) where to get the free Bill Block you spoke of, Guess I will ask about that tomorrow too.
Pretty weird anyone would just Bill you -
As I would think that was pretty illegal. Weirder yet 'that Verizon would allow it...
Betcha if it keeps up and folks pay attention to their phone bills there will be much-a-do......
