Verizon has declared a new deal for emergency first responders. The firm already provides exceptional plans for government organizations, but the new deal applies for first responders to personal user plans.
Local and state police, EMS, and fire employees are all entitled for the discount, be they retirees, present employees, or volunteers. Eligible users can receive $15 discount on their bill for an unlimited single line, $35 discount on 2 lines, or $40 discount on 3 or more lines, with the choice to modify the different flavors of “unlimited” plans that the carrier provides.
The decision comes just a couple of months after the firm got huge criticism for throttling unlimited plans of emergency responders in California, hampering the ability of firefighters to offer emergency services and deal with the Mendocino wildfires. Verizon later promised that it might ensure it will never take place again. The new deal for first responders is now accessible.
On a related note, carrying various handsets for business and personal employments was over for Verizon Wireless consumers. The firm earlier declared that it is launching an app that permits consumers to add up almost 4 extra numbers to one handset.
The app is dubbed as My Numbers, and it can be installed from the Apple’s App Store or Google Play Store. It has an extra price of $15 per month for every number, but that is considerably cheaper than buying a new handset for every number. The app sets up different text messaging and voicemail boxes for the various numbers too.
There are other applications such as Flyp, Burner, and Google Voice that have calmed some of the stress of the personal and business phones issues, but this is one of the first attempts from a chief carrier. Usually, using multiple numbers in the U.S. has been hard.
