Do not buy cellular phone from Costco
This is what you'll encounter if you buy a cell phone from Costco without
doing research: You'll be treated as a "mark"- meaning someone to get the best of in a transaction. You might be lied to, as we were, and put on a plan without sufficient information on monthly costs, nothing on "extras", and providing many more hours than we needed. You might pay less for the cell phone itself ,but it might be one that Verizon no longer sells - and its not the cost of the phone that counts most - its the cost of your plan!
Monetary Loss: $60.
