We know there are millions of reasons to be on the best network. Here are five (+). Share them with your friends and family.

Reason 7: College success story.

For a college student, a broken screen on your smartphone can totally shatter your life. Then your mom reminds you about Total Mobile Protection.

Reason 6: Oh Deer!

One night, while driving down a rural country road, two deer collided with their car and left them in a ditch. Hum was there.

Reason 5: Angel.

When Hurricane Harvey flooded Houston, Angel Vitales witnessed first hand the benefits of being on the Verizon Network.

Reason 4: Man down.

Nearly three miles from the nearest roads, in the remote woods of Northern New York, the strain of pedaling in somewhat extreme environments caused something to pop in his buddy’s back. He collapsed to the ground, essentially paralyzed with pain. It was that moment Mike realized it pays to be on the best.

Reason 3: 20 miles from the nearest road.

Ann and three college friends took a spring break trip to hike the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. All was going well until the weather took a drastic change — a massive snowstorm with 70 mile-per-hour winds and bone chilling cold. They had to hike 12 miles down a mountain in an attempt to avoid frostbite and hypothermia.

Still 20 miles from the nearest road, Ann looked at her phone to see full Verizon service.

Reason 2: In a life or death situation.

Kerry, an Austin, Texas resident, was in his car when flash floods carried his SUV away with him inside. Knowing how critical it was to reach help and wanting to record this once-in-a-lifetime event, Kerry grabbed his phone and Verizon kept him connected.

Reason 1: Picture perfect climb.

As Raj Joshi and his son gaze out and admire each and every scenic overlook, they’d often find themselves wanting to share their accomplishment and their view with loved ones back home. Fellow hikers on the trail are always asking, “can you help us send a photo to our friends? Because we can’t get service up here.”
