I was digging around in the Android app source (don't ask) and found the URL for the My Verizon interface. https://mobile.vzw.com/hybridClient/index.html looks a lot like the interface that was seen in the previous version of the app (the buttons are a bit uglier (just text on a bar)). If you open that on your phone, you will need to turn it to landscape mode for it to render properly.
That URL should get some of us by with My Verizon until Big Red decides to give us a proper app, or someone finishes reverse engineering the Android app.

When Verizon "updated" the app, the WebView control they were using switched the page to a WAP page that is almost useless. So, I decided to see if I could do something a bit better. There's an article here on WPCentral about it, and the reviews for the app reflect the user dissatisfaction with the "update".

Yeah when I first got my Trophy back in April, the My Verizon app was awesome. Now it's this really bad horrible awful thing and no one likes it. And it doesn't work on WiFi anymore.

Html Agility Pack
It's a really nice free open source C# library that I've used for scraping web pages. I've never used it for a WP project though. It looks like they don't have a WP binary but they have a WP project in the source so you can build it yourself.

In that case you might be interested in JSON.NET:
I would tread lightly when it comes to Verizon though. If they find out what you're doing they may try to shut your project down.

I think you're on the right track with the JSON based on what you've observed. It should be relatively easy (I say that now...) to read the JSON and compare the data to the site to figure out what numbers go where...
