One concern that most people had with the merger of Alltel and Verizon was regarding the My Circle feature. We are happy to report that current Alltel customers will continue to have My Circle 5, 10, and 20 available to them. For Verizon customers, starting Feb 15th, you will also have access to Friends & Family on your Nationwide calling plan, but there are a few requirements. Customers with a Single Line will need to be on a 900 minute plan or higher and can add up to 5 Friends & Family numbers, while Family Share plans of 1400 minutes or higher can add up to 10 numbers. The Friends & Family numbers can include land-line and other cell numbers, such as AT&T, Sprint, and Cingular. The best part is, there is no additional charge for this feature. You can add and change the Friends & Family numbers through the My Verizon
site, but the numbers will not be activated until the following day. Business accounts will be offered a similar feature later this quarter.
