ORANGEBURG, NY — Verizon Wireless, the only major carrier with a 30-day network test-drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn't satisfied and switches to another carrier, today announced the opening of a new authorized retail outlet in Farmingdale to make shopping for the company's wireless voice and data products more convenient for local residents and businesses. Jet Communications, located at 45 Route 110 North, at the corner of Great Neck Road, now offers a wide variety of wireless phones, accessories and services from Verizon Wireless.

Jet Communications, owned by Jay Marek who has served as a Verizon Wireless authorized retailer for the past six years, has three other retail locations on Long Island and one in Westchester County. The new store's hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Customers may activate Verizon Wireless service at Jet Communications and shop for the latest in wireless technology including voice and data services like two-way TXT Messaging, Picture Messaging and V CAST service which brings TV, music and other multimedia services to wireless phones over the company's high-speed broadband wireless network.

Verizon Wireless authorized retailers receive extensive training, as well as merchandising support and competitive commissions, after successfully completing a highly selective qualification process. Authorized retailers play a key role in the company's retail sales distribution strategy which includes 2,200 company-owned and operated Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide.

Verizon Wireless recently introduced its 30-day Test Drive, an industry first that lets customers experience its network virtually risk-free for 30 days. If customers are not satisfied with their experience and take their number to another carrier, Verizon Wireless will refund their money for calls, equipment, activation fee and taxes.

Currently the company is looking for bilingual English-Spanish speaking entrepreneurs interested in joining the Verizon Wireless authorized agent team in New York and Northern New Jersey neighborhoods with large Spanish-speaking populations.
