Closing thoughts on my time with Verizon Wireless #VZWSM

Android VerizonI can hardly believe it has been six months since I started the journey of being a Verizon Wireless Ambassador! Over these many months, I have grown to love not only the devices I have had the pleasure of trying, but the Verizon Wireless service as well. While in the beginning I thought that I was a total iPhone girl through and through, I ended up learning that I really love Androids. I’m going to miss using them!

While I do love Verizon Wireless enough to stay with their service, we have a current contract that needs to be fulfilled with another provider before we can think about switching. Come the end of the year though, we’ll be giving serious thought to switching.

Hopeline Holiday BadgeFrom discovering fun and useful apps to learning how to use my smartphone to keep organized and be productive, I’ve enjoyed every minute of discovery in the #VZWSM program. The data and service alone are reason enough to use Verizon Wireless, it is lightning fast and makes being mobile so much fun!

I wanted to take a moment to remind you that now is a great time to donate your phones to the Verizon Wireless HopeLine® program.

Many of us may have received a new phone as a holiday gift this year, why not help support Verizon’s fight against domestic violence by donating your old phone? Nearly one in four women, one in seven men, and over 3 million children have been affected by domestic violence. Wireless phones and technology can serve as a vital link to emergency or support services in a time of crisis or as a reliable, safe connection to employers, family and friends as survivors rebuild their lives.

HopeLine® from Verizon puts the nation’s most reliable network to work in the community by turning no-longer used cell phones into support for domestic violence victims and survivors. I do hope you’ll consider supporting this very worthy cause!

    Glad you enjoyed your ambassadorship! I use a Windows phone, so I am a little apprehensive to switch to an Android, but my husband loves his!
