If I use the dial up download features on my LG 4400 phone to download
Get-It-Now apps, do the charges simply appear on my next phone bill?

Thanks

If you get the subscription GIN service and then cancel and remove the
app...watch your bill! My experience is Verizon keeps charging and
charging, even after the appication has been removed. They also have
charged me for the free "introductory" tune/picture whatever. So keep
a log in case you have to explain what was promised as "free".
Their billing is really flaky for GIN, but CS seems use to crediting
the errors.

My Seenz has to be the best deal for wallpapers. It's like
$7.99/month, but I downloaded about 60 wallpapers (lifetime supply)
and then plan to cancel within the first month. I fully expect Verizon
to keep billing me though. A call to the data department is required
to get rid of subsequent billing, for deleted subscription apps.
It's also a good idea to look at you bill and know when the billing
cycle begins.

You don't dial up to download Get It Now, you select the operation
button on your cell phone and then download the application. It will
appear on your cellular invoice as near to your closing date as
possible. If you get the application or program after the closing date
of your service then it will be listed on the next invoice. If you get
it before the closing date then it will appear on the invoice that is
upcoming.

I'd like to add that some of the charges are one-time charges and some
are subscriptions (depends on how much the publisher of the GetItNow! app
wants to charge). Look carefully when you download stuff.
