Worry Free Guarantee® FAQs
Why does Verizon Wireless have a Worry Free Guarantee®?
The number one question most people have when they purchase a new product or when they do business with a company for the first time is what happens after the sale. It is a concern reiterated almost universally by consumers who are tired of finding out after the fact that the company with whom they have chosen to do business is not interested in their problem when something goes wrong.Back to top
The Worry Free Guarantee is our customer commitment that solidifies how Verizon Wireless does business nationwide. The Worry Free Guarantee is multifaceted, but the core of the message is that customers who choose Verizon Wireless are getting a commitment that we will stand behind the products and equipment we sell.
