The $3.50 "fee", at this point, is for Verizon Communications accounts, NOT Verizon Wireless (two separate entities, two separate companies).
The Verizon.com website (note: NOT verizonwireless.com) has this on it's billing page:
Make a payment now without registering or signing in.Please note that payments made without signing in to My Verizon will be processed by a vendor who will charge a $3.50 service fee per payment. Avoid this fee by signing in or registering.
For now, those of us with wireless service can pay online without any additional charges. And it looks like as long as you are registered and paying online for your internet, or other landline services, you don't have to pay the fee either.
Research, and get the facts before you get all upset over a non-issue. While I don't necessarily agree with "pay a fee to pay your bill conveniently", it is clear there are still plenty of options to pay WITHOUT paying the extra fee.
