Verizon is the biggest wireless service provider in America, and currently sells a wide range of BlackBerry devices.
Verizon was formed in 2000 when Bell Atlantic merged with a smaller regional service provider, GTE.
After having announced that it would repurpose portions of its 3G spectrum to operate the faster 4G LTE protocol sometime in 2015, it looks like the Verizon has begun the conversion process and is testing these plans in select markets. Verizon would not give specifics about the test markets right now, but it is reported that Verizon is at least starting its trial of operating LTE on some of its 3G spectrum in New York.Continue Reading →
Verizon is getting into the spirit of the holiday season by giving away a host of digital content today, which the carrier is calling Connection Day. Starting today, all users, regardless of wireless carrier, will be able to access free content from iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Conde Nast, Boingo and more, courtesy of Verizon.Continue Reading →
Verizon Wireless has updated its terms of service, which could increase the amount you're paying in early termination fees, or ETF, depending on when you wish to defect and leave the carrier. According to the new terms, if you sign a new two-year contract with Verizon and decide to leave towards the beginning of the contract term, you'll be out more money as your early termination fees do not see any reductions until eight months into your contract.Continue Reading →
In an attempt to get you to sign up for their service, Verizon has introduced Connection Day, a day of digital giveaways for people visiting Verizon stores. Taking place on November 26, the day before Thanksgiving, Connection Day will see Verizon give away music, apps, movies, and more from participating companies like Amazon, Apple, and Pandora.Continue Reading →
Craving more data for your money? Verizon has just announced that it is upping data allotment on its midrange More Everything plans for a limited time. $80 will now score you 10GB of data per month, while $100 will net you 15GB. Perhaps even better, the deal isn't limited to new customers; existing More Everything customers can get in on the action too.Continue Reading →
Following the lead of AT&T and Sprint, Verizon Wireless will now be giving subscribers of its More Everything plans even more data, though you'll have to sign up this month to qualify. More data begins with the 12 GB plan, which will now net you a 15 GB data bucket each month, and goes all the way up to the 50 GB data plan, which through the promotion will double your data to a whopping 100 GB to consume. That's a lot of Netflix streaming to consume each month!Continue Reading →
Although some folks have seen it arrive a bit earlier, it seems as though Verizon has now pushed another round of updates for BlackBerry Z30 owners. This time, software release 10.2.1.2991, OS version 10.2.1.3289 is appearing via the OTA update system. The change log is recycled from previous release but we know the update includes general bug fixes and improvements over the previous releases.Continue Reading →
Looking for a BlackBerry Z10 for Verizon but don't want to bother with a contract? Well, you might want to hit up your local Fry's location if you have one near you. It seems as though for the past few days they've quietly been having a clearance deal on BlackBerry Z10's where you can pick one up either free with a contract or for only $100 without a contract.Continue Reading →
Verizon Wireless today announced that VoLTE (Voice over LTE) will be available on the network nationwide in the coming weeks. Customers with the US mobile operator will soon be able to make higher quality calls (and video calls) with other subscribers on the same network with compatible 4G smartphones. The plan is to slowly roll out the upgrades across the board to compete alongside AT&T and others, using LTE for not only super-charged data but also higher quality calls.Continue Reading →
If you happen to be looking for a new smartphone plan and don't need a lot of data and only have one line to worry about, Verizon has now dropped a new plan that might be of interest to you.
As part of a new promo, you can now get unlimited voice minutes, unlimited text messaging and 2GB of data for $60, you'll want to pay attention to the overage charges though that are set at a whopping $15/1 GB. Obviously not going to be an option for everyone but it's sure to fit some needs.
If you happen to have a smartphone with Verizon Edge, you will receive $10 off the monthly access on the single line plan. If you're looking for the full details, Verizon has kindly set up a FAQ section on their site to view.
Thanks, John!Continue Reading →
If you've managed to stay on an unlimited data plan on Verizon, you might soon notice that your speeds beginning to slow down if you're using a lot of data. A limited set of customers will fall under the umbrella of Verizon's so-called "Network Optimization" policy, which Verizon says is not throttling. The shift impacts customers in a very specific set of circumstances, according to Verizon:Continue Reading →
Verizon has posted its second quarter earnings, which saw the carrier accruing a double-digit percentage increase in operating income and earnings per share. Over the course of the quarter, Verizon has managed to add 1.4 million new postpaid wireless subscribers, up from 941,000 over the same period last year.Continue Reading →
So, you're wondering if your Verizon device works with that shiny new XLTE network that just went live in your area? Well, here's a list of BlackBerry devices that can currently take advantage of the added speed from AWS spectrum. Of course as new phones and tablets come out, we can expect that they'll support Verizon's XLTE network.Continue Reading →
Verizon's first quarter results are in, and mirroring rival AT&T, they saw some rather impressive growth. Verizon as a whole saw $30 billion in revenue, but even with their substantial non-cellular businesses, Verizon Wireless accounted for a whopping $20.9 billion of that income. That's an increase of nearly 7% from this quarter last year, though growth through their retail outlets was slightly lower.Continue Reading →
Verizon is finally going to give you a discount for off-contract phones. Starting April 17th, customers of Big Red are going to be able to bring their own off-contract devices onto shared MORE Everything plans at a discount. No longer will they have to pay a subsidy fee for a subsidy they're not using. Plans at or under 8GB will see a smartphone add-on reduction of $10 (bringing the fee to $30/month), while those with data allotments of 10GB or higher will see their fee sliced from $40 down to $25 per smartphone.Continue Reading →
Pre-paid plans are becoming a more-and-more viable option these days, especially if carriers continue to make improvements like Verizon has just done with the introduction of their new "ALLSET PLANS" (no more all-caps from here on out, mkay). These new plans start at $35-a-month for basic phones, but if you're smart and opt for a smartphone, it starts at a mere $45-a-month.
That low Allset plan price includes unlimited 'Anytime Minutes' calls and unlimited messaging (including international messaging to Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico). The base plan offers a measly 500MB data allotment each month, though thanks to the magic of pre-pay you can get more as you need it. An extra 500MB is $5, and that's good for 30 days, while you can get 1GB for $10 and 3GB for $20 — both with a 90-day expiration.
Verizon has a handful of smartphones available for purchase for use on the Allset plans, including the iPhone 4 for $99.99, iPhone 4s at $199.99, the Moto G for $99.99, and a few other low-end Android phones. If you have your own off-contract Verizon phone, you can bring it onto an Allset plan as well.

From what we've heard OS 10.2.1 isn't set to roll out for another few days for most users but if this stands correct, the process may already be underway. The update is appearing OTA for some as well as via BlackBerry Link.Continue Reading →
If you're a Verizon customer and have been waiting on the BlackBerry Z30, today is your day! The Z30 is now available online from Verizon for $199 on a two-year contract or $549 month-to-month. The Z30 is exclusive to Verizon so if you're in the US you may not see it hit other carriers anytime soon, if at all.Continue Reading →
The news notes that the Z30 will be available online, but no word if it will be arriving in stores the same day as well. We'd assume that it would show up on shelves as some point, but it could very well carry an online only tag for a while.Continue Reading →
Verizon dropped word on Twitter today that the Z30 will be coming in November but still no exact date -- so it does leave the gap open for the time being. The Z30 will run $199 on a two-year contract and is a Verizon exclusive. We're not sure if that's "exclusive forever" or just "exclusive for now" so we'll do some more digging.Continue Reading →
If you're a Verizon user and waiting on the BlackBerry Z30, you'll be happy to know that Big Red has just fired up their Z30 landing page. You won't find many juicy details as far as pricing or release date, but you can drop your email to be notified of updates gearing up to release. It does note that it's "exclusive" however so we're not quite sure what's up with that.Continue Reading →
I'm all about instant gratification. I'm a huge fan of overnight shipping on Amazon (I'm somewhat of an addict) and would love for it to be even faster some days, but I suppose that's asking for a lot.
Verizon on the other hand is kicking things up in Philadelphia with a new pilot program to offer same-day delivery on all device orders. Customers in the area who order devices with or without accessories at verizonwireless.com will be eligible for same-day delivery in addition to standard and overnight options. Orders placed before 10am Monday through Friday will arrive the same day by 7pm at a fee of $19.99 - just $5 more than the priority overnight price of $14.99.Continue Reading →
While we're not sure just when we'll see the Z30 hit North American soil, Verizon Wireless has confirmed via Twitter that the device is "coming soon".Continue Reading →
