And thus begins the calls into Verizon Customer Care demanding a refund for Google Play purchases that the customer "had absolutely no idea how they got on there I'm being scammed" etc etc

This has been a great features for years which has been available to Sprint and Tmobile customers. Sprint and Tmobile customers enjoy full complete access to this feature with NO limitations on amount. Verizon offers what they want the limits you on a monthly basis everything they do is to there own ways they could care less about customers.

If you worked for cell phone customer service you would know why Verizon didn't allow carrier billing. Every carrier that does, AT&T, Tmobile, Sprint, get hundreds of calls per day from customers demanding credit for a Google Play or other mobile purchase that "there is no way they ever made" who, in most cases, are outright lying. Carrier billing results in way more calls to customer service, as well as thousands of lost dollars in revenue refunding purchases that shouldn't be refunded. Allowing carrier billing only results in negatives for carriers, despite any perceived benefits to the customer.

No, its to limit liability from irresponsible adults, kids and employees.

Why? I'd rather get billed for my $1.00 purchase now than see it tacked on my already ridiculous Verizon bill. Maybe that's just me.

I just wish google play would support more countries because mine isnt supported, also i would like them to offer paypal support to make it easier to get your credit card to work with it
