Verizon will allow potential customers to try their wireless network for 30 days “virtually risk-free.” The offer, dubbed Test Drive, begins tomorrow.
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 calls, equipment, activation fee and taxes, as well as release them from their contract without an early termination fee when they return their phone within the Test Drive period.
Not included are the cost of data services, V CAST, and “certain Verizon Wireless surcharges.”
Verizon, like most cellphone companies, works rabidly to keep their customers from escaping to seemingly greener pastures. Test Drive looks consumer-friendly, but we will withhold final judgement until we see the fine print. — CAREY GREENBERG-BERGER
