Premium Text Messaging Programs
Parents and Account Holders: Note that users on an account may directly access text and premium text message programs and incur charges.

Standard messaging charges apply to all messages sent and received via short codes. Some programs also charge additional premium fees ("Premium Programs"), the amount and billing frequency of which will be disclosed at time of opt-in and billed on your Verizon Wireless bill. To opt in, send a text message to the applicable short code and follow any instructions. To opt out at any time, send the words CANCEL, END, QUIT, STOP or UNSUBSCRIBE to the applicable short code.
