Verizon Wireless, Inc.
1 Verizon Way
Verizon Wireless is the #1 US wireless phone operator in terms of sales and subscribers (ahead of top rival AT&T Mobility). Serving nearly 137 million consumer, business, and government customers nationwide, the company offers both standard post-paid (about 95% of its customers) and prepaid subscription plans. It distributes new and pre-owned phones from manufacturers including Samsung Electronics, BlackBerry, LG, and Apple. The company also offers mobile data services, including text messaging, multimedia content (V CAST), and Web access. Verizon Wireless is wholly owned by Verizon Communications after Verizon bought the part that had been owned by UK-based global communications giant Vodafone in the companies' joint venture.
