BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless today announced a new offer for its millions of customers with basic phones: for $10 a month, customers will receive 75 MB of data use to browse the Web, participate in social networking, and download games and apps, plus access to several of Verizon Wireless’ most popular applications.   

In addition to the data allowance, the new Value Pack includes monthly subscriptions to Mobile Email; VZ Navigator®, Verizon Wireless’ audible turn-by-turn navigation application; and Ringback Tones, so customers can customize or choose the song a caller hears when waiting for an answer.  Individual ringback tones are available for $1.99 for one year.    

“Basic phones aren’t so basic any more – along with voice calls and text messages, customers can access the Internet, send and receive email, stay connected and much more,” said Kristi Crum, executive director, Consumer Solution for Verizon Wireless.  “Bringing some of our most-asked-for apps together with a generous data allowance in one package gives millions of customers the opportunity to get more value from their Verizon Wireless phones, all for an affordable monthly charge.”

Customers can save more than $10 every month over the cost of individual subscriptions if they choose the new Value Pack.  This offer is available for a limited time; basic phone customers with existing data packages, including the $10/75 MB per month package, or who subscribe to VZ Navigator, can move to the Value Pack at any time using My Verizon.
