Has Verizon dropped their rates for International Plans? I signed up for International Plan last night, and instead of showing the usual rates ($70 for 0.5 Gb international roaming, $130 for 2 Gb International roaming), they showed up the rates of $14 and $26 repsectively. I signed up and took the screen shots of the confirmation, but a nagging doubt remains. I don't see any general announcement of reduction in the rates, and such a reduction is somewhat atypical of Verizon. I am wondering if other members in the community also see these rates (I can't see any rates now since I have a pending plan on my account), am wondering if this was some kind of special promotion, or a general reduction in the price that is to stay. Just want to check with the community since I don't want to be surprised by Verizon Billing at end of the billing period claiming that those rates are not the right ones.

I saw the same thing but with $26 price for 250 minutes. It displayed that same price all the way through to confirmation (I have screenshots) but when it showed up on my account it was $130.
Verizon: where do I email the screenshots? I'd sure like to get the advertised price.
Any chance you can post your screen shots. I signed up like you, however I didn’t take the screen shots on 2 lines and now I’m concerned I don’t have what I need to argue his when my bill comes out.
Same boat for me, saw $26 for 2GB data and 1000 texts. I signed up but sadly didn't get any screen shots. Went back on line 2 weeks later and now it's $130. They've jacked up their rates dramatically, made it so the only option is to get the $10 a day travel pass. The basic plan with 500 MB of data and 250 texts was $40 but is now $70. On phone right now to see if they can reduce the charge to $70.
