Does Verizon Offer Any Free Trials?

Verizon usually offers a 14-day free trial. There are also certain promotions with longer trial periods. That is the case with their new 5G Home Internet Service, which you can use for three months at no charge. After the trial period expires, your provided form of payment will be billed every month via AutoPay.

DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Card Makes Tracking Free Trials Easier

If you’re concerned about forgetting to cancel a subscription or a service while it’s still in a free trial period, our virtual credit card can save you a lot of trouble.

DoNotPay's virtual credit card generator enables you to create a new credit card number that you can use to sign up for services and verify your payment info without worrying about information abuse and theft.

It is completely legitimate, so you can successfully register for any service or membership you want to try. Still, it is not connected with your bank account, and it cannot be charged if you forget about cancelation deadlines!

Does Verizon Prorate Their Cancelations?

If you choose to cancel a Verizon service while still under a contract, you will face a prorated early termination fee. These fees can go up to $350. The longer you use the service, the less you will have to pay since Verizon decreases it by $15 per month.
