BEDMINSTER, NJ — As the lazy days of summer draw to a close and the pace of life changes to accommodate fall activities, Verizon Wireless customers are encouraged to use their wireless phones to simplify their lives while staying in touch with loved ones. The leaves may change along with the seasons, but the reliability of the nation's largest wireless network remains constant — so here are a few suggestions on how to make life easier with a wireless device from the nation's leading wireless service provider:

  • Going away to school can be daunting. Homesick students can call friends and family using Verizon Wireless' IN Calling for free, leaving more money for textbooks or getting together with friends after class.
  • Apartment hunting? After a while, details of one apartment or another can be hard to recall. Use your camera phone from Verizon Wireless to snap pictures that will help keep the apartment with the great kitchen straight from the one with the garden window.
  • Going to lunch with friends and forget the meeting place? Using a headset to call while driving allows drivers to keep both hands on the wheel as you track down the location.
  • Homecoming Game Victory? Finally purchased that dream car? Just adopted a new pet? Picture Messaging will let everyone join in the celebration.
  • Trying to find someone at a party? TXT Messaging allows customers the convenience of quick, discrete communication.
  • Can't afford to be late for an important date or class? Use the phone's calendar and alarm as a reminder.

Verizon Wireless products and services are available in more than 1,200 Verizon Wireless Communications Stores, at participating Circuit City and RadioShack locations and on the Web at www.verizonwireless.com.
