I bought Droid incredible & 2 yr contract for the NFL Live app. Advertisements sold this as an exclusive free service & after my 30 days passed I now have to pay to see games! Verizons explation is the app is free but service cost $. They failed to mention that in all their advertising of this "exclusive" partnership to get suckers like me to sign up. Anyone else feel deceived?

I do not have a Droid Incredible, but I have been watching Verizon recently, and I have to say that their business practices/standards seem to be slipping. I agree that the bait & switch method they used is wrong. Unfortunately, it happens very often, especially when it comes to long contracts. Is there no way to end the NFL Live contract, or can you just choose to not watch any games/content, and therefore incur no costs?
