I live in charlotte, and travel in SC quite a lot. No one has service there, so it does me no good paying 200 a month for a lack of service. Somehow you guessed wrong, unless I'm just too stupid to not know that my Tbolt, Bionic, Rezound, or Gnex are "3G" only phones that have never seen an OTA? (Well, actually, they don't usually see an OTA, I usually just flash the new radio's via recovery, but that's not the point.)

Fraud - Noun
Wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.

You are wrongfully deceiving Verizon for financial gain (savings are GAIN). Granted your deception is due to a lapse in Verizon's vigilance but still deception.

You're a very angry, ignorant person.

If you choose a 700 minute plan and go over, VZW would be glad to charge you for the minutes you use. Choosing a 1400 minute plan and not using all of it is a risk that you've accepted to avoid paying overages.

But it's not your fault, the evil VZW made you do it, I'm sure.

Dude just give up...you can't debate your way out of being deceitful lol & your rants get more & more ridiculous/hilarious as you try. Suppose your neighbor was using your Wifi w/out your knowledge? Lets not pretend you wouldn't feel the least bit "took". It's the same idea. The door is open...is $16 really stopping you from heading over to T-Mobile for the closeout prices or AT&T to get your precious rollover minutes. I'm sure taking away your measly $2400 a year will determine the fate of Verizon's survival. You have very little business sense...pretty much zero. You think Verizon went into business to NOT make money? It's a business & they're here for profit just like every other business. In a nut shell...you sir, are an ignorant fraud lol.

Not on all of them. My discount only applies to the account level line, and the other additional line charges. So, 22 or something, plus 2 per line. It's like 30 dollars total in discounts on mine. Not ever corporate plan is the same. They also stopped discounting my "account level" data plan in like 2010. Which was my only data plan to ever get the discount.

Mine used to be the voice and data on the first line until 2009. then it was just converted to voice only. But different employers are get different billing.
This isn't even the whole list, as my former employer isn't even on here. Yet i have had, and still continue to have my discount.

Discounts are delegated by the employers--not by the carriers. Just some FYI

It varies by your discount and plan. I get 20% off my entire plan including my unlimited data and 25% off phones and accessories. But that was implemented a while ago and probably wouldn't stay the same if I changed my plan at all. But I'm loving my unlimited data so that won't happen.

What are you talking about? What does it have to do with what I stated above? Go away.

Discounts on America's Choice or Nationwide plans apply to account level/first line, plus data plans. Share Everything plans the discount applies to the account level plan. Plans under $30/month or mobile broadband plans aren't eligible for discount.

Ok, I work for a major carrier and deal with employers discounts a lot. Employers enter agreements with carriers to subsidize your monthly service for working for them, just like they subsidize your healthcare, dental, and all those other nice benefits. They're picking up the tab for the rest of it. When you leave your company, they don't keep paying your healthcare now do they? Now just like all other benefits, they're based upon employment level. Companies have different discount agreements depending on whether you're management, an executive, or just a mindless drone. So yes, keeping a discount after leaving a company is defrauding both your old company and your carrier. Your carrier has all the right to audit. When I left Wireless Advocates, Verizon cancelled my employee line within a month. Sure I miss paying $10 a month for 1500 minutes, unlimited text and data but I have no right to complain. I left that company. It's about time carriers start auditing.
