Verizon getting carrier billing for Google Play on Thursday
posted by Michael H. / Oct 16, 2012, 10:07 PM
The leak shows an internal document for Verizon which states that starting October 18th, the carrier will provide carrier billing for customers using the Google Play Store. The odd part of the document is that there will be a "$25 per MTN" limit on purchases. We're assuming that "MTN" in this context stands for "mobile telephone number", but it's unclear if the $25 limit is a per purchase limit or per month limit.
Obviously, users won't be able to buy new devices with the carrier billing in Google Play, but of course no one can use carrier billing for that because the devices section of the Play Store doesn't exist in the mobile version of the store. We should get the full details on Thursday though, so we'll let you know.

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.
