Attention, Verizon employees! Starting today, you can stop feeling embarrassed by friends and family that aren’t Verizon customers, because we have the perfect solution: how about a free trial on our network?

With Verizon Free Trial, you get 30 days of unlimited premium data on Verizon's fastest 5G network — with no contractual obligations, commitments or credit checks.

How to make the switch for free

To get started, have your friends and family download the My Verizon app for iOS or Android on their unlocked, eSIM-capable mobile phone. Once installed, they just need to follow a few easy steps to sign up for Free Trial and activate a new Verizon line.

Check out the video above for a full walkthrough of the sign-up process.

Why you should care

Free Trial lets non-Verizon customers experience Verizon’s amazing network performance and unlimited premium data on the fastest 5G network for 30 days, without disrupting their existing service.

Here’s what they’ll get with their free trial:

  • Up to 30 days on Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband (on compatible phones), 5G Nationwide and 4G LTE, on us
  • Unlimited talk and text
  • Up to 100 GB of 4G/5G data with Verizon’s premium network experience
  • 480p streaming on 4G LTE and 5G Nationwide; 4K streaming on 5G Ultra Wideband
  • No commitment or credit check
  • Access to a wireless service they’ll never want to leave

Who it’s for

This program is for non-Verizon customers who are considering switching to Verizon and want to try it out without any contractual obligations. Participants must have an unlocked smartphone to access Free Trial (they must check with their existing carrier for more information about unlocking their phone). At any time during the 30-day free trial, they can quickly and easily transfer their existing number to Verizon and pick from one of our awesome 5G Unlimited plans.

When they are ready to switch, don’t forget to share your Friends & Family discount. Friends and family can get up to $25/mo off new Unlimited postpaid mobile accounts and $10/mo off Fios Gigabit Connection plans when they switch to Verizon online. Plus, eligible customers can get added savings when combined with the Mobile + Home Discount.

Visit the Free Trial FAQ page for more info, or download the My Verizon app for iOS or Android.
