Verizon announces ‘Smartphones Talk Free’ promotion

Today, Verizon Wireless took the wraps off of its “Smartphones Talk Free” promotion that we briefly told you about yesterday. The new promotion aims to save those Family SharePlan customers looking to add an additional smartphone line for a child, spouse, or acquaintance some cold hard cash. As the press release reads:

To take advantage of the Smartphones Talk Free promotion, customers will need a Nationwide Family SharePlan starting at $69.99 monthly access for 700 Anytime Minutes and add a $29.99 data plan for each additional smartphone. Customers currently on a Nationwide Family SharePlan may have a total of up to five lines, and receive the promotional credit on each new line that uses a new smartphone.

The offer credits each new smartphone line — that subscribes to a $29.99 data plan — $9.99 per month; the offer expires on January 7, 2011. Verizon notes that consumers can save nearly $240 per line over the life of a two-year contract. Hit the break for the full PR. More →
