Hi, my phone was stolen 3 weeks ago in Berlin and I will be in Europe till August. And I got an email from Verizon:
"We are notifying you that your line(s) will resume billing but service will remain suspend on 06/18/2015 unless you reconnect the service before this date.
After reconnection, your bill will include prorated charges for the current billing cycle, as well as advance charges for the next full billing cycle."
which is ridiculous because there's no way I will get a verizon phone here. Is there anything I can get away with this?
Second, if these ppl charge me regardless, I want to downgrade my plan to 250mb data, which is not available on the webpage. There's no way other than live chat to contact the costumer service, but goddamn live chat has never been available since the day my phone was stolen. Can anyone help me out of this shitty situation???

You can request a 90 day period (can be done online) suspension without billing. This can be repeated once again for a total of 180 days in a year period.
Also make sure your account is secure. It is always a good idea to change all your passwords in situations like this.
