Total Control With Usage Controls

For any parent who has given their child a cell phone line on their Verizon Wireless plan, they probably know what it is like to worry whether they will exceed the monthly plan allowance. If you have been in that position or are putting off getting said youth a phone due to this quam, I’d like to introduce you to Verizon Usage Controls.

Adding this system is as simple as adding any other feature to one or more of your phone lines. It costs $4.99 for every line you wish to monitor and allows you to restrict and view voice minutes, messaging and data usage, and even content downloads such as ringtones. The controlled line will receive a free text message when they are nearing their usage limit while the account owner will receive a message when the allowance has been met.Usage controls can be monitored and adjusted via your online MyVerizon account.

Usage controls also enables you to block up to twenty phone numbers as opposed the standard five numbers lines are alloted to block for free. To be even more secure, you have the ability to create Trusted Number lists. The phone would then only be able to contact the people who you designate as safe contacts, and also prevent the likelihood of going above the allotted usage amounts.

Experience total control when you can’t always be there. Create up to ten time period restrictions. Calls are stopped during restricted times, such as when the person is in school. At this point, they would only be able to dial the Trusted Numbers you have established or place calls to 911. Messaging (text, picture and even messaging with online social websites) will also be blocked unless it is being sent or received from a Trusted Number.

Express Verizon welcomes you to contact us for more information regarding Usage Controls and how they may be beneficial to use with the lines on your account.

Lets start with the romantic card. E-Cards is an app that lets you create a virtual card to sent to that special someone. Share your card with them via email, Twitter, or Facebook.  You can even use pictures from your owns phone gallery to completely personalize the message.

Chocolates are fairly simple. Use the Walgreens or CVS apps to check for coupons and nearby locations to quickly stop in for sweets. We can still help you if you want to take it one step further. Find Chocolate! is your personal guide to all fine chocolate shops. It uses your location to find all the nearby gourmet chocolate shops and provides a map showing how to get to them.  Check other users ratings of the shops and get the best candies for your love.

First place to check would be the Jewelry Finder app. This will show you the best deals for online jewelry shopping. Searches hundreds of classified websites and online marketplaces. Sort by price, location, or type. Even drop gift hints by forwarding listings via Facebook or email.

Doing pretty well, only one more thing to set up, dinner. This may be the easiest part if you have Open Table on your smartphone. Search for restaurants in your area based on price, reviews or cuisine. Results are mapped and show real-time table availability. Even look over the menu to be sure you will both enjoy a meal there. If it all looks good, place your reservations directly through the app for free! A confirmation email will be sent to you shortly after. Find the right place, the right meal, and the right reservations all in one place.

Are You On Voxer?

Over the last few months, we have seen an app called Voxer grow in download popularity. In short, it is a walkie-talkie application for both Android and Apple smartphones. But, it really does pack a lot more than just that.

As soon as you set up the app on your phone, you will see that the layout is clean and easy to use. It automatically pulls in your Facebook friends and contacts that are using Voxer so that you can start chatting with them at the push of a button. You will also be notified as soon as another one of your connected friends joins the Voxer network. Also suggest the app to any of your other contacts.

You can chat with one other person or a group but, the most useful part is the versatility of how you can talk. Send a text message, a photo, or a voice note. The messages you send can include your current location on google maps. This could come in very useful if you are trying to meet with someone else; you no longer have to write out where you are and how to get there. For privacy, this is also a function you can disable.

Texting had become a huge part of the current communication, Voxer doesn’t take away from that but, reintegrates walkie-talkie use that you aren’t constantly stuck typing in messages to your phone. Talk to the people on your Facebook easily while also sending photos and location information.

Voxer is free to use and free of advertisements. Making it even more easy and enjoyable to use. For more information on Voxer and how to use it, stop into any of our stores in Ellington, Enfield, Vernon, or Stafford.

Express Is Going Green

Express Wireless has decided to go green by contracting Earthlight to provide us an analysis of how we can save money with our electric bill by changing all lights to LED‘s within each of our four stores.  This will substantially reduce the number of kilowatt-hours we consume each month reflecting not only a large savings on our monthly electric bills, but less consumption of energy and natural resources.
There is no out-of-pocket monies involved and the cost of the monthly payment to do this will be very close if not less than what we gain in savings each month in each store.  The monthly loan payment is also interest free. 
We are looking forward to saving 11,752 kilowatt-hours in our Ellington store annually and working with light which is more like daylight lighting.  How great is that – less kilowatt-hours and better lighting!      
We start the launch of our energy-saving movement in our Ellington location and are looking forward to continuing the change to the other three stores in Vernon, Enfield, and Stafford, Connecticut.

 More Green movements are soon to come from Express Verizon. Stay tuned to see how they could save YOU money!
