BEDMINSTER, NJ — With warmer months ahead, Verizon Wireless invites customers to add a little color and flare to their style with chic new accessories.

Customers getting ready for summer travel should be sure to add the Jabra Pivot headset to their packing lists. The Jabra Pivot, a must-have for Verizon Wireless customers on-the-go, is the latest ultra-lightweight, behind-the-ear corded headset that provides unbeatable comfort and features a rotating microphone for optimal positioning and convenience. Whether taking a family road trip or hitting the beach, the Jabra Pivot's multi-pivot design enables the microphone to adjust for use in both the left or right ear to fit all personal wearing preferences. Giving customers all the benefits of hands-free communication, the Jabra Pivot features MiniGelsTM that channel sound directly into the ear providing superior sound clarity. The headset also offers in-line call answer/end and mute button functionality and a built-in microphone that provides advanced voice clarity to block out unwanted background noise.

Fashion-forward customers who seek a totally wireless experience will enjoy Verizon Wireless' newest Bluetooth-enabled Jabra BT250v headset. The latest wireless headset for Verizon Wireless customers with Bluetooth-capable phones, the Jabra BT250v headset alerts customers of incoming calls with the headset's vibrating call alert feature — even when the phone is up to thirty feet away. With the touch of a button on the Jabra BT250v, customers can also access many of their phone's features, such as single touch voice dialing, call-waiting and last number redial. The Jabra BT250v also comes equipped with MiniGel channels for better sound quality and reception as well as uni-directional microphone to reduce background noise and improve conversation clarity.

Verizon Wireless customers looking to keep themselves and their favorite wireless phones on the cutting edge of fashion can purchase one of this season's hot new PhonepockesTM (pronounced Phone-pock-key).
