You don't have to believe me...  Backup assistant DOES incur MB charges for the initial download.  The daily updates (sync) do NOT. Simply having the application on your phone bills you nothing, after the initial download. (assuming you are registered for MyVerizon, so that you don't have to pay the $1.99/month for the service itself)

On your bill, Premium SMS services will also show as "downloads."  Does it have a "short-code" beside it?  If it does; you can plug the code into Google and usually figure out what it is, otherwise VZW customer service CAN use that code to identify where the charge is coming from.

Good point with that part... I can see how an exception to that rule should be made for someone who "upgrades to the exact same model of phone."  I can't agree with you more, and I think if I were that customer, I would put a call in to CS to plead my case.  I will say however, that manufacturers often don't make a particular model long enough to make this a commonplace occurance; not to mention that to the VAST majority of customers, "upgrade" means just that, upgrading to "newer and better."  These not-so-common occurances are why customer service representatives exist.  There is an exception to every rule, and you nailed this one on the head!!  Hopefully, when this does happen, a CS representative would see why the policy should not apply to that customer, and make the exception.

again, i understand the frustration, but I stand behind the analogy... when a new phone is introduced, applications are re-released by their developer to accomodate the new device; and quite often, older applications never get released for new devices.  Make no bones about it; software developers do not design games for "verizon phones", they design them specifically for the phone models that manufacturers produce.  What you have confused here is the concept that Verizon and At&T are software developers... they aren't.  VZW doesn't write game applications, they simply allow them to be marketed, to their customers, via a virtual download platform... You may be surprised to find out that Verizon Wireless does not even own that platform... it is owned by Qualcomm.  VZW just adds their brand to a product produced by Qualcomm and Many, many software developers.

Rather than attempting to assign Trusted Numbers: to the line, it may be more to your benefit to restrict based on Times of day, or possibly even choose specific numbers to disallow.  A lot of phones have a built-in capability to restrict calling to numbers that have been added to the contact list... this might also be a benefit.  In the grand scheme of things though, you are right... Usage Controls as a feature isn't really perfect yet.
Select plans include unlimited messaging... Sounds like you have a shared plan, so EVERY line that shares gets that benefit

there really isn't a way to "limit" downloads, only block them. (which sounds like it might be a good idea)  VZW customer service can block any additional DLs from happening.  As a side note; watch out for what she has already purchased, it can still be used.  As an example; if she has VZTones Deluxe loaded on her phone, she can still purchase ringtones after the block has been applied.  You may need to remove some existing apps from her phone

Have you noticed how some contributors are in such a race to gain status on the forum that they answer EVERY question, usually with information that is halfway-correct, at best? Can we possibly drop our arrogance enough to concede that we don't know the answer to every question, and maybe leave it for someone who actually knows?  The forum is for sharing information to HELP PEOPLE... there is NOTHING helpful about incorrect information!

What does it do?  3 things, and 3 things ONLY. 1) Programs your phone, including your MTN, MIN, and Home SID (represents where you live, and what your home switch is) 2) Downloads Preferred Roaming List, so that your phone will automatically know what network to use when you are not using your home SID. 3) (newer option) you can change your own ESN... just call it from the phone you "want to use" and tell it your phone number... pretty slick!!   Things you should and should not do: You SHOULD; occasionally update your Preferred Roaming list, From your HOME AREA or another VZW coverage area You SHOULD NOT; dial *228 in an extended network area. (another carrier's towers)  It is totally unnecessary (and honestly a little dangerous) to do this when you reach your destination city.

Generally, this is based on 2 factors, the first of which is owning a license to provide service in the area.  Currently, VZW does not have a license to operate there.  That isn't to say there will never be one available.  Looking at the map, it seems as though Del Rio is probably not a particularly well-populated area, with the exception of a military base nearby.  Simply put, I'm sure you have little competitive effort from wireless companies, as network infrastructure is an expensive investment.  If, for instance AT&T, Sprint, and VZW all operated in the area, there simply would not be enough customers between the 3 to support the expense involved.  Verizon Wireless does have a "contact us" link on their website... this is probably your best outlet to at least get someone to look into the possibility of moving into Del Rio.
If you google the short-code, you should be able to locate the 3rd party provider. As a Side-note...VZW restricts billing from any particular service to 100.00 per month

A lot of these services are initiated via a website.
