GREENVILLE, SC — Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable voice and data network, is hosting Customer Appreciation Days in Upstate South Carolina stores the weekend of October 2-4, 2009.

Verizon Wireless is celebrating its successful completion of its purchase of Alltel in January. For the past nine months, the company has been integrating networks, converting billing systems, upgrading high-speed wireless broadband service, and re-merchandising stores across South Carolina.

Customers are encouraged to bring their used wireless phones, batteries and accessories to donate to Verizon Wireless' ongoing, exclusive HopeLine® phone recycling and reuse program. Phones donated to HopeLine® can be refurbished and sold for reuse; those that are not salvageable are recycled in an environmentally sound way under a zero landfill policy. Proceeds generated from the phones collected by HopeLine® go toward wireless phones and service for survivors of domestic violence as well as financial grants to non-profit domestic violence prevention and awareness agencies.

During the weekend of October 2nd- 4th, customers will enjoy waived activation fees with a two-year plan, 25% off select accessories and can choose from a selection of free Samsung phones valued at $49.99 or below after rebate.
