How to obtain a Verizon Wireless Mobile

Phone Using the FOP Corporate Account

Discount Plan

If you want to move your existing Verizon cell phone service, or move from another phone carrier, to the FOP’s corporate account, please use the ASSUMPTION OF LIABILITY (AOL) form. The form is in a Word document format. The document can be downloaded at:

 www.azfop.com/verizon or

 http://lodge2.azfop.com/files/2012/04/FOP_AOL_JR_POOLE_form.doc

Keep in mind, if you move to the FOP’s Verizon corporate account, there are a few things that are different from a personal Verizon account.

 Most importantly, the rate plans, depending upon the calling plans selected, may result in a savings; however, the corporate plans are not the same plans available through a non-corporate plan. For example; the Share Data Plan isn’t available under the non-corporate plan. Basically, the corporate share plan shares talk minutes, however, it does not share data. See the Verizon Rate plans at the bottom of this document or at www.azfop.com/verizon .  Corporate account members can’t go to a Verizon store to make changes to a plan,

purchase new equipment or get assistance with equipment. You must use your My Verizon corporate web account, which you must ask the FOP point of contact to set up 48 hours after your corporate account is activated.

 Because transferring to a corporate account changes the liability associated with your phone service;

o You must remain current in your payments to keep your phone service active. o Equipment and other services (such as downloaded smartphone apps) must be

paid with a personal credit card instead of being added to your Verizon bill.  After activating your FOP Verizon corporate account, expect to get a final bill for the

personal account you are leaving listing all of the charges up to the date of transfer. This final bill must be paid. The final bill also serves as a notice of transfer.

 The SPOC (Points of Contact) J.R. Pool and Lorraine Thompson are not Verizon

employees; they are FOP members who have volunteered to process the paperwork and set up your Verizon Web access. Because she is retired, Lorraine Thompson, Tucson Lodge 1 lofoplodge1@gmail.com has more time to process paperwork. J.R. Pool, Phoenix Lodge 2 jrpool4964@fop.net is the SPOC for most of the Phoenix FOP members.

If you want to move your existing non-Verizon cell phone service to the FOP’s corporate account, before doing so, call your current cell phone service provider to ensure you will not incur an early cancellation fee. If you will incur a fee, determine if it’s something you are willing to pay or you may decide to wait until your contract with your current provider has ended before moving to Verizon Wireless.

If your existing Verizon account is Bundled with Century Link or any other type of Bundled payment plan you must de-enroll your Verizon account before it can be transferred to the FOP Verizon discount program.

If you do not have a cell phone account with any provider, fill out the AOL form. Since you will not have existing Verizon account information, leave those boxes blank.
