    FYI, I recently terminated two lines with Verizon. In addition to the ETF, they charged $14.53 and $13.40 for the Fed Universal Service Charge. I called and asked for the fee to be removed. They eventually agreed and removed the charges.

    Not surprising. The only thing that you must pay on top of etf are governmental taxes and fees, if applicable. The federal universal service charge is not one of them. Verizon would try to sneak in additional charges, of course. Glad you caught it though


    " WHAT CHARGES ARE SET BY VERIZON WIRELESS?
    For Postpay Service, our charges include Federal Universal Service, Regulatory and Administrative Charges, and we may also include other charges related to our governmental costs. We set these charges; they aren't taxes, they aren't required by law, they are not necessarily related to anything the government does, they are kept by us in whole or in part, and the amounts and what they pay for may change.
    GOVERNMENT TAXES, FEES AND SURCHARGES
    You must pay all taxes, fees and surcharges set by federal, state and local governments. Please note that we may not always be able to notify you in advance of changes to these charges."

    I also got those same charges for an ETF fee. I didn't deserve the etf as I had returned the phone to Motorola within my 14 days. So I'l be credited for the etf.
    But yeah those extra fees were there added to the ETF fee

    I am still with Verizon. I had added a line to get the Note 4. I suspended the line the day it activated. When I got my $400 in gift cards I canceled the line and used them to pay the etf.

    Were the gift cards from Verizon?

    $200 visa gift card from Comcast/Verizon $100 trading in an ancient broke iPhone. $100 for a trade in for the Note 4(got a $15 prepaid from best buy to trade in). The activation fee was waved.

    If a planed it better I would of got a line on another carrier and gotten the $150 port credit to.
