This means if you're an existing Verizon customer looking to purchase a new device on a two-year contract, you'll have to pay $30. Thanks!"</em></p><p><img height="333" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1334158137.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>Yes, thanks! Oh well, it was bound to happen right? This fee covers all mobile devices so the thought is that it would also cover iPads, but that isn't confirmed.
