Good news for those that don’t like all the hassle that comes with purchasing apps from the Google Play Store using one of those boring old credit cards. The official Google Play Twitter confirmed today that carrier billing will be finally be making its way to Verizon Wireless. That means Verizon customers will soon find themselves joining illustrious group of Sprint and T-Mobile’s elite customers who’ve been enjoying the many benefits of throwing apps directly on top of their already high monthly cellphone bill. I understand that this is a great option for those without poor or no credit, but honestly — how many people actually take advantage of it? Either way, options are good and with Android, we have plenty of them.
