Okay so there has been a big fuss about the update for the NFL Mobile application.
As I understand the application itself will be free but any of the video content deemed "Premium Features" will require a $10 payment per month?
So a certain cases pop up in mind:
Case 1). 3G Device with unlimited data.
Update NFL Mobile and pay $10 to first update the application and then get access to the Premium content for that month.
To continue watching Premium content $10 per month is charge.
Case 2). 4G Device with unlimited data
Update NFL Mobile for free but pay $10 per month to get access to Premium content?
However, if you are just using the application it is free?
Case 3). 4G Device but with no 4G connection
Update NFL Mobile and pay $10 to get it updated and get access to Premium content for that month.
I know for case #3 that I could not update NFL mobile when I was on my wifi network for free even though I have a 4G Droid Bionic. I had to turn off wifi and get logged onto the 4G network before I could update for free.
I thought NFL Mobile was supposed to be free including the premium content for the current NFL season when you bought a new 4G Phone like the Droid Bionic.
So very disappointed and frustrated...
Solved! Go to Correct Answer
I have the Samsung Droid Charge and had the same issue with the NFL Mobile. I called Customer Service last night and they said ALL the content is free for 4G phones such as the Charge and Bionic. He said just pick the option to subscribe for the monthly fee and go forward but you will not be charged as the system will notice your phone and plan. I did that and it went right through and no payment was requested (unless something like this just shows up on your bill). If they do try to charge me I will have a record of the call where the rep told me it is free for 4G phones.
Apparently, this was only a promo and expired October 1st. The only way to get free access for the whole 2011 season was by buying a 4G phone through Verizon during the time the promo was being ran. Not sure how many people understood the advertisement, I certainly didnt. Pretty disappointing to be honest, but whatever.
