Verizon updated the functionality of its Family and Business SharePlans today. Now subscribers will be able to add or combine lines across the country, including different area codes, on to one account. This way family members that live in different regions of the country or businesses that have multiple locations can share minutes on a single account no matter where they are located.

behind a bit...

it is great news, but OLD news...i've been able to use one vision (that's what the new system is called) since november 11th, 2007 to be precise, i'm pretty sure every market has had access to one vision because cs can be rerouted to any call center instead of dealing with vision north, vision west, etc. so either phonescoop is extremely behind the times, or verizon just decied to tell everyone 🤨

umm.. how did everyone miss this?

This actually happened last year. if i can remember it was like august... that we could do this because it has a been a big bonus for us in snow bird arizona where people only come here for half the year.
Last year new activations could have any area code tied to it regardless of location/market. Now families and businesses with phones in different markets can be on the same account. VZW was keeping it quiet until today so that when they announced it...

HUGE news for indirect agents

I put this in another post, but it deserves its own. What this means for those of us who are indirect agents is that we can now service customers' accounts no matter where they're from. Before, in South Dakota, I couldn't do upgrades for people who lived in Texas, for instance. This means better customer service, a more consistent brand experience, and of course for me, more money.
How many lines does VZW allow per family plan, and how does that compare with other companies?

I guess next they will announce that now you can make calls unlimited after 7, or true unlimited broadband with aircards, this crap reminds me of at&t and apple announcing that the iphone can now support threaded text messeging. Sprint ahead guys

It was really GF, but you're clearly not. As you know, 'Gary', Sprint's network was built as one entity, not by the same route as Verizon & AT&T of mergers & acquisitions of smaller carriers, so Sprint never had to deal with this issue. You'd also b...

Sprint's family plans have had this option forever, I can't believe Verizon didn't, unless that's an aspect of Verzion "control" your always hearing about...
who cares really
It had everything to do with their regional billing system. This is a big deal for families whose children goto school in another state, and want a local number. This is actually a pretty big deal. As far as Verizon's "control" you speak of, what comp...
Mainly because of the FCC regulated market divisions, the country used to be very firmly separated in this way. For example, at Cingular, because of all the different legacy markets, it wasn't possible to have multiple numbers on an account from diff...
