November 13, 2002


If you are looking for the hottest tech gifts of the season, look no further. The Verizon Wireless Holiday Gift Guide highlights this year's newest, hippest gadgets, making your holiday planning easier than ever.

Top Tech Toy of the Year: Looking for the "it" phone of the season? The vivid, color screen Motorola T720 is one of the most modern wireless phones on the market. It cleverly combines the best of voice, messaging and entertainment into a sleek, sophisticated design, and it boasts the brand-new Verizon Wireless Get It Nowsm technology. With Get It Now, you can download applications from the network to your phone such as games, entertainment, productivity tools, maps, weather and more.

The Must-Have Holiday Accessory: Talk about evolution, this might be a revolution. Today's busy execs won't be seen without this new device. Verizon Wireless is the first nationwide wireless carrier to offer the JABRA FreeSpeak headset - the next generation of hands-free communication. Put on your headset, leave your phone behind and keep talking and walking for up to 30-feet from your phone. Using BlueToothTM technology, this leading-edge wireless headset delivers a cord-free connection to a wireless device, and for most phones equipped with voice-activated dialing, users can place or receive a call without having to touch their phone.

Give the Gift as Big as Texas: Yee-Haw! For the true die-hard Texan, nothing will fit them better than the perfect-sized Texas flag faceplate. And nothing pairs with it nicer than our new Texas Local DigitalChoiceSM plan - the first Texas service plan makes every call made in Texas and parts of Louisiana a local one, eliminating long distance and roaming charges throughout the Lone Star state. Verizon Wireless is the only carrier to offer this value to Texans.

Wireless, Super-Fast Internet Access: For your on-the-go, busy types who just can't live without the web, the Verizon Wireless Express NetworkSM is the dream gift that they will never forget. It's an exciting way to get the most out of the time they spend accessing the Internet or their corporate intranet wirelessly. Faster downloading. Quicker access to emails. Less time waiting. From laptops, to phones and select PDAs, Express Network will get them online, on time.

Message Mania: If your son or daughter has a phone, odds are they are getting a lot of use out of Mobile Messengersm. If they aren't, there's no easier addition to your gift-giving plan. When you can't talk- or you just want to put it in writing - text messaging gets the message across, loud and clear. Verizon Wireless Mobile Messenger is the fast, easy way to use text messaging as part of your wireless phone experience.
