Verizon Wireless Has America Covered This Labor Day Weekend

Weekend Vacationers Can Count on Nation's Best and Largest Wireless Network

August 27, 2002


Summer coverage usually means sunscreen, but to Verizon Wireless customers, SPF stands for "Summertime Phone Functionality." Whether catching rays in Carmel, searching for seashells in Nantucket or watching the sunset in Honolulu, customers can expect the best SPF with coast-to-coast service on the Verizon Wireless network. Leave for Labor Day weekend with the dependability of the most expansive coverage in the United States -- including major vacation hot spots -- to keep in touch with friends and be accessible in case of emergencies.

And because no one wants to take home a large wireless bill as a souvenir, Verizon Wireless offers the America's ChoiceSM calling plan. All calls placed on the America's Choice network are treated like local calls, so customers won't get (sun)burned by roaming and long distance charges. Beachgoers can chat in the sand in Miami, Maui and Cape Cod, while tourists in Las Vegas or New Orleans can enjoy clear conversations. Going on a road trip? Call from rest stops from the Jersey Shore to the Grand Canyon to Malibu. Regardless of the destination, Verizon Wireless takes care to ensure its customers have ample SPF.

Verizon Wireless customers can customize their America's Choice plan with seven different price points, ranging from $35 for 300 minutes, to $200 for 3,000 minutes. Adding services, such as the America's Choice Family SharePlansSM and national mobile-to-mobile service, can enhance calling plans and customize the service to fit individual customer needs.

Customers can easily see their usage, as the America's Choice plan is available with specified CDMA digital tri-mode handsets that are pre-programmed to identify home calling and roaming areas. The America's Choice plan is available at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store or on the Web at the Verizon Wireless Online Store at www.verizonwireless.com.
