Basic International Rates
Verizon offers international calling plans designed to meet your international calling needs. If you do not choose an international plan when you sign up for a domestic long distance plan, you will be charged basic international flat rates, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all your direct-dialed international calls.
Charges do not include taxes and Universal Service Fees.
Calling to certain destinations may be temporarily blocked without prior notice if Verizon deems it necessary to prevent unlawful or fraudulent use of its services.
The Company shall generally identify on the bill the name of the country called based on the standards set forth by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). However, political disputes about country boundaries and naming, as well as agreements the Company has with its foreign carrier partners, may result in variations in the identification of country name. For example, calls to the West Bank and Gaza may appear on the bill as Israel or Palestine. The Company's billing practices are in no way intended to indicate a position on the merits of a border dispute or a claim to statehood.
Verizon International Plans are for residential voice use and may not be used for commercial purposes. Verizon may suspend, restrict or cancel your service if your usage is inconsistent with residential voice usage.
Many foreign telecommunications companies impose premium fees on Verizon Long Distance to complete international calls to certain types of devices or services. These include calls made to wireless phones, pagers, personal computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs); calls that require satellite technology; and calls to information services, such as chat lines or other 900-type numbers. If you make an international call to one of these devices or services, the call will be billed at a higher (“premium”) rate than the standard rate for other international calls. Premium fees are added to the standard rate and will be charged regardless of which international calling plan you subscribe to. If you do not select an international calling plan, these surcharges are added to Basic international rates. Devices and services that are billed premium fees are subject to change without advanced notice.
