Verizon is also waiving domestic talk/text/data usage incurred from September 1-13 for customers with billing addresses in the following counties:
Florida: Columbia, Suwannee, Citrus
Georgia: Berrien, Charlton.
“While hurricanes challenge the Southeast time and again, they are no match for the resilience of the people. Verizon continues to dedicate resources to ensure that people are connected when it matters the most. We have your back," said Leigh Anne Lanier, Market President - Atlantic South at Verizon. "Together, we can weather any storm, emerging stronger and more connected as a community."
Customers do not have to take any action for these usage charges to be waived and customers whose bill cycles have already closed will have such charges automatically credited back.
In addition, the Verizon-owned prepaid brands Straight Talk, Tracfone, Total by Verizon, Simple Mobile, Safelink, Walmart Family Mobile, Net10, GoSmart, and Page Plus announced today that customers in the Florida and Georgia counties listed above who reach their month-end service in the next seven days, August 31 - September 6, will have their service extended by another week.
