Android handsets are increasing in popularity through all of the leading unlocked cell phone service providers. To keep up with this growing popularity, Verizon has introduced a new express service for Android phones and plans. Announced on October 18th, Verizon has developed tools that will allow contract holders to access a plethora of account-related information in as little as one-click from their handset. Information that can be accessed will include call logs, management of accounts, and billing history. Also included in this Express Services tool is the ability to activate phones and add lines of service whenever and where ever they want.
The Express Services tool by Verizon is easy to use for all Verizon customers. Recognizing that today's society requires features that will let the population manage their account on the go and at home, Verizon has developed this new program and makes it available as an OTA update. With this new feature, it is said that account holders can effectively manage their accounts on a consistent and convenient platform, eliminating the need to call customer care and wait on hold for minutes they cannot afford to waste.
The initial update is available to several Android Smartphone’s. These phones include DROID by Motorola, DROID 2, Unlocked DROID X, R2-D2, DEVOUR, DROID ERIS, DROID Incredible, LG Ally, and the Samsung Fascinate. All Verizon customers with these handsets will receive a message offering the free update for installation. Those who are not setup on My Verizon will have the option to download the application directly from Android Market on Verizon.com.
While Express Services is only available for the models listed above, Verizon has announced they will be implementing a similar program for other Smartphone in the near future. This new development proves that Verizon is keeping up with the need for convenience tools and they are enabling customers to obtain important data in as little as one-click.
