Phone use while driving has been a growing problem. There are many applications available to aid in the prevention of phone related driving collisions. Safely Go is an excellently designed app that encompasses all the features necessary when avoiding the temptation of using your phone when behind the wheel.
The creators of this program understand that it is unrealistic to remove yourself from all contact while on the go. They allow calls and texts from only 3 “VIP” contacts such as your family or boss. All others will receive an automatic text response that you are currently driving safely. When activated, the phone will enable bluetooth for connection to handsfree devices. Lastly, you would only have access to your top three driving related apps, such as maps or navigation tools.
Safely go can be used in situations other than while driving. Use it during any opurtunity where you don’t want to be bothered such as meetings and dinner with friends.
Many people think they have control over their vehicle even while operating thier cellphones. However, time after time they have proven to be more dangerous than expected. Travel responsibly and free from cellular distractions with Safely Go.

Waze for a Free GPS

The iPhone has been a great device for users of Apple products. It offers a fantastic battery life and easy to use interface. While it does come with an included map program there hasn’t always been a free GPS service to navigate you while you drive…until now. Waze is a free app you can download from the Apple App Store that will help you find the quickest route to where ever you need to be.

“When you download Waze, you not only get a free navigation, but also become a part of the local driving community n your area, joining forces with other drivers nearby to outsmart traffic, save time, and improve everyone’s daily commute”-

This is a driver generated service. As you and other users locate elements in your route that could slow down a commute, the program automatically warns you of what is ahead and will reroute you to save time in your travels. If you find any issues with street names, roads or other discrepancies, you are able to correct them.

Know where speed cameras, road hazards, accidents, traffic jams or other driving delays are before you are affected by them. You can even report sightings to others on the same path with a touch of a button.

This program is not restricted to only the iPhone or apple products but can be used by Android users as well. For more information check out the Waze Guided Tour video or stop into any Express Verizon location.

Google Drive Gives Virtual Storage

I continue to be in awe of the programs and tools that Google is bringing together. Google has created Google Music for all playing all your tunes, Google+ to socialize your life, and their Navigation to tell you how to get where your going.

Now another free solution is available to you via Google Drive. Simply download the free app on your smartphone and computers and you can now instantly share files between your devices. It will sync itself over the internet and grants you access to move, store, or access files instantly, anywhere.

When you sign up, you are given 5GB of free storage space, plenty of room for all your important files. Best of all, if your device is ever lost or broken, you will not lose anything saved to Google Drive. It’s still available and saved to your drive account.

For more information on Google Drive stop into any of our Express Verizon stores in Ellington, Enfield, Vernon, or Stafford.

Upgrade Fee Announcement

Starting April 22nd, 2012 Verizon Wireless will be implementing a $30 fee to your bill when you upgrade your phone and resign your two-year contract. The upgrade fee has been a common procedure used by other carriers and Verizon has decided to use a 15% lower fee than some of the other competitors.

Express Verizon encourages our customers to upgrade eligible lines prior to the 22nd to avoid any extra cost. We are also still offering our Cell Phone Trade-In Program* which will give our customers at least $20 off a new device. You may turn in one phone per purchase as long as the phone you are bringing back still powers on. We also accept devices from other carriers.

Upgrade fees will not apply to Verizon Wireless Prepay or Business accounts.

*Speak with an Express Verizon associate for more details.

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.
