ORANGEBURG, NY — Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable wireless voice and data network, today announced the opening of a new authorized retail outlet in Manhattan to make shopping for the company's wireless voice and data products more convenient for local residents and businesses. Wireless to Go, located at 107 West 86th Street, now offers a wide variety of wireless phones, accessories and services from Verizon Wireless.

Wireless to Go, owned by Al Haber, has served as a Verizon Wireless authorized retailer for the past six years and now has eight retail locations throughout the New York Metro area. The new store's hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Customers may activate Verizon Wireless service at Wireless to Go and shop for the latest in wireless technology including data services like two-way text messaging; picture messaging; V CAST service, which brings TV, music and other multimedia services to wireless phones; and the newest version of VZ NavigatorSM, which provides audible turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic information over the company's high-speed 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 2,400 company-owned and operated Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide.

Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier to offer a 30-day test drive of its network. If at any point during the 30-day Test Drive customers are not satisfied with their experience and take their number to another wireless carrier, Verizon Wireless will refund their money for their voice calls, equipment, activation fee and taxes, as well as release them from their contract without early termination fee when they return their phone within the Test Drive period.

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. For more information about becoming an exclusive Verizon Wireless authorized retailer send an e-mail to NewAgents@verizonwireless.com.
