    Verizon Over Charging for Ea Apps











    Many verizon users have come to expect preloaded apps on our phone and the thought was that maybe it was so that it help with the cost of the device. Well I have been made aware by a few people that verizon charges us more for ea games then any other carrier. We are being charged 7.99 for tetris while people of other carriers are paying 2.99. When I called up verizon I was not happy with the answer I got. The good thing is that its only ea games that is affected and not any other apps on the market. But If I am stuck with preloaded apps like NFS (ea game) and other apps that I can not remove with out rooting then I should not also have to pay twice as more for an ea app as people on other carriers.

    Screen shots will be posted in thread.

    Market Enabler (on the android market) allows you to spoof the market to make it think you are another carrier but it requires root access. Found info on androidforums.


    When you install market enabler and after you set it to the carrier you want to use to spoof the market you are going to have to go into setting, applications, manage applications, and find the market (it will be under running or all) and clear data, cache , and force stop. Then when you open the market again you will see the prices for what ever carrier you have as your spoof.
