Verizon Wireless intros Express Services for Android phones

Verizon Wireless today announced the imminent availability of a new set of account management tools for subscribers with Android handsets. The new tools, dubbed “Express Services”, give Android phone owners easy access to a variety of account-related information such as call logs, billing history and Friends & Family management. Express Services also allows users to quickly activate a new phone or even add a new line of service. John Stratton, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Verizon Wireless, had this to say:

Now, with one click, customers can use Express Services to select the transactions they want, with time-saving account management services that are simple to use and consistent across multiple touch points, empowering them to save time and control their wireless services, whenever and wherever they want.

Express Services will be delivered this week as an OTA update available across all current Android models. Hit the jump for the full press release.

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Beginning this week, Verizon Wireless customers will find it easier than ever to manage their accounts using enhanced Express Services.

“Now, with one click, customers can use Express Services to select the transactions they want, with time-saving account management services that are simple to use and consistent across multiple touch points, empowering them to save time and control their wireless services, whenever and wherever they want,” said John Stratton, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Verizon Wireless.

The new My Verizon Mobile will be available initially on DROID by Motorola, DROID™ 2 by Motorola, DROID X by Motorola, DROID™ R2-D2™ by Motorola, Motorola DEVOUR™, DROID ERIS™ by HTC, DROID Incredible by HTC, LG Ally™, and the Samsung Fascinate™.
