TULSA, OK — Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable voice and data network, today announced the opening of a new authorized retail agent at Grand Lake to make shopping for the company's wireless voice and data products more convenient for local residents and businesses. Cellular Technologies now offers a wide variety of wireless phones, accessories and services from Verizon Wireless.
Cellular Technologies, owned by Larry Hestand, is located at 3 West 3rd Street in Grove, Oklahoma. Store hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"I use Verizon Wireless service and I can tell you from experience the network coverage is the best in the Grand Lake area. In addition to the superior coverage, wireless shoppers can expect great customer service when they visit our store," said Hestand.
In May, Verizon Wireless activated ten new cell sites equipped with the company's advanced high-speed Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) technology. The launch was part of the company's continuing growth and investment to build the best network in Tulsa and northeastern Oklahoma. Verizon Wireless has already invested more than $41 million in Oklahoma and the coverage area will continue to grow.
Customers may activate Verizon Wireless service at Cellular Technologies and shop for the latest in wireless technology including voice and data services like two-way TXT Messaging, PIX 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 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.
