Until we know the details of the specific plan, it is anyone's guess.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

No Surprise to me, they are in the business to make money. They could care less about so many Volunteer firemen/ems that rely on their PERSONAL phones for doing their Volunteering job.. Verizon could care less
I agree this is very bad if they do not offer to private plans. not all first responders have their phones that they use on the job paid for by their towns/village. I am not talking about volunteer either even though that one should qualify as well I do believe. I am actually talking about fire and police first responders that their departments do not pay for the phone my husband being one but they all use the phones very often for the job for many reasons . Is a very helpful tool and several situations where the radio That they carry would that be an option. So this would be very sad if a first responder which can easily prove what the badge and ID that they are active duty first responder or contact their departmen. If you guys are not offering this to them it is sad.
They can not do their job fully today and be safe without them in this day and age and just because they are not on a towns plan where they pay for the phone Should not Disqualify them from receiving this.
GARWARR1434, that is correct. At this time it is only available to business and corporate accounts. All first responders are important and valuable. We will definitely take this feed back and escalate it to the proper channels. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I agree. I don’t think Verizon fully understands the duties with public safety. Most 911 dispatchers don’t have work cell phones to take home with them however during natural disasters their always called back to work to help. During the Carr Fire in Shasta County, all off duty 911 dispatchers received an all call text on their personal phones for anyone who could assist. Most off duty officers and volunteer firemen received the same texts or calls. ATT offers it and a discount.
I disagree. Also, 911 dispatchers also are not first responders, they're classified as clerical help. Of course public sector jobs are important, as are other private or non-profit positions where employees help others for their job. Lots of positions can require the use of a cell phone for essential job duties. Just like any other necessary job tool, it should be provided by the employer. It's not the responsibility of a completely separate company to provide someone with essential tools to perform thier job effectively. Verizon is a for profit company, not a charity.
