In my last post, I covered my review of the Verizon iPhone 4. While I’m on the topic, I thought I would post some tips I’ve learned during my switch to the Verizon iPhone that every Verizon iPhone customer should know about.
First thing’s first: Porting Your Number Over to Verizon
The first question I get asked quite a bit from people interested in switching to Verizon is if their number can easily be ported over to Verizon from their existing carrier. The answer is, usually, yes. I was able to successfully port both of my existing AT&T numbers over to Verizon, and the move went extremely easy. There’s a quick way to check eligibility online, and it only takes a few seconds to see if your number will port. Chances are it will, and do so with ease.
Phone Numbers Every Verizon iPhone Customer Should Know
Here’s a list of phone numbers I keep in my contacts directory that every Verizon iPhone customer should probably keep in theirs. These phone numbers offer everything from customer service to carrier upgrades to checking usage:
*611: This is the phone number for Verizon Wireless Customer Service. This handles everything from technical support to changing plans and features to account customer service. When something’s amiss, or if you simply need to add more minutes to your plan, this is usually the number you’ll call.
