Text Messaging, Premium Text Messaging, Text Alerts and Instant Messaging - Terms & Conditions

[Legal Information]

Text Messaging, Premium Text Messaging, Text Alerts and Instant Messaging services require a two-way, messaging-capable phone. Standard text messaging charge of $0.20/message applies to messages sent and received in the Nationwide Rate and Coverage Area, except for International Text Messages, which cost $0.25/message sent and $0.20/message received, and which do not use messaging bundle allowances, unless you are on a MORE Everything plan where you get Unlimited International messages. When roaming internationally, different charges may apply and messaging bundle allowances may not be used; see www.verizonwireless.com/international for more information. Your telephone number will always be sent to the destination, even if you use Caller ID Blocking options for voice calls. Verizon Wireless reserves the right to block unsolicited messages, but you may receive unsolicited messages. In addition to other penalties provided by law, anyone who uses the Verizon Wireless network to send "spam" risks having his or her service terminated and/or his or her messages blocked. The system will attempt delivery of the message for up to five (5) days from the date of receipt by Verizon Wireless. After five (5) days, messages not delivered will be automatically deleted. Verizon Wireless cannot guarantee that messages will be received. Verizon Wireless is not responsible for messages that are lost or misdirected. Verizon Wireless is not responsible for information sent using messaging services. A 160-character limit applies and it includes the email address indicated by the sender, the message content and, if provided, the subject's call back number. Only160 characters of the message will be received. All remaining characters will be deleted. If your phone model supports Enhanced Text Messaging, a higher character limit may apply and additional messaging features may be available, but message recipient's ability to receive or view such additional characters and features may vary by phone model, software and wireless service provider. See phone manufacturer's user guide for details.

Premium Text Charges. Common short codes are five-digit numbers used by third parties to conduct Text-based campaigns. Campaigns vary by short code. Opt-in requirements vary by campaign. To opt-in to a campaign, send a Text Message to the applicable common short code and follow the instructions, if any. Standard messaging charges apply to Text Messages sent and received via all common short codes. Premium charges apply, in addition to standard messaging charges, to Text Messages sent and received via some common short codes. The amount of any premium charges, and whether they are one-time or recurring subscription charges, will be disclosed at time of opt-in. Premium charges will be included in your Verizon Wireless bill. Send the words CANCEL, END, QUIT, STOP or UNSUBSCRIBE to any common short code to opt-out of a campaign at any time. Send the word HELP to any common short code to get information, including details on any premium charges and contact information for the third party sponsoring the campaign, related to a campaign at any time. Some campaigns may be subject to additional terms and conditions. See www.verizonwireless.com for more information.
