Across the United States, 82.2% of the people own a smartphone. Everyone with a cellphone has to make a decision on which carrier to use. Plans can be confusing and getting trapped in a one or two-year contract with a provider you are unhappy with is frustrating.
Today, on the Verizon blog, Verizon announced they are offering non-Verizon customers the opportunity to sign up for the Verizon Free Trial. You’ll get 30 days of unlimited data and unlimited talk and text on Verizon’s 5G network. The trial is not only free, but commitment free. They won’t ask for a credit card and it won’t affect your current plan or contract.
You will need a eSIM-capable smartphone to take advantage of the offer. An eSIM is a virtual electronic SIM card that allows you to activate more than one wireless provider at a time.
You’ll also need to have a phone that is unlocked. Some carriers keep your phone locked until it is paid off. Sometimes you have to call your wireless provider’s customer service you unlock it. Once it is unlocked, it allows you to try out another carrier or move it to a different provider.
While trying Verizon Free Trial, you are able to keep your phone number. Verizon will issue you a temporary phone number to use their data, talk, and text services for 30 days. Essentially, you’ll have two phone numbers during the trial. You can set which number you want to use, depending on what you are doing. You can select the secondary number to test out Verizon’s speed and coverage.
To join the trial, you’ll need to download the My Verizon app and click Join Now. At the end of the trial, you don’t have to do anything. If you don’t sign up for one of their paid service plans, the Verizon service automatically ends.
The average U.S. phone bill is roughly $114 per month and about 50% of Americans are unhappy about their bill. In a survey conducted by WhistleOut showed most people have more than one phone on their plan, hence the hefty monthly bill. Respondents’ most frequent complaints with their service provider was spotty coverage, slow data, and their hotspot data.
The survey also showed 38% of the respondents planned to switch to a different wireless provider.
If you are unhappy with your phone plan, now may be a good time to sign up for Verizon Free Trial. With their no-strings-attached trial, you’ve got nothing to lose.
Are you less than thrilled with your current phone plan? What is your biggest complaint about your current provider? Would you be willing to give Verizon Free Trial a shot? I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments!
