Living your best smartphone life

So we've all been there ... that time when you're on an important phone call, and then the call drops. Or even when you need to use the internet on your smartphone, only to realize that you're at your data limit for the month.

I drive all over the metro Detroit area for movie screenings; because of this, most of the time I know where I'm going, but sometimes, I'm in an unfamiliar area or at an unfamiliar theater and I need GPS to know how to get there and back.

"Hello ... hello? Anyone there?"

A few months ago, I was headed to the AMC Forum (Sterling Heights area) and I wanted to know the best way to get home from there. My phone kept stalling ... and stalling ... and then the Maps app crashed! Gah! I was extremely frustrated. I was finally able to re-start the phone and get safely home, but it TOOK. SO. LONG. Had the Maps app worked the first time (aka when I actually NEEDED it to work), I would have been able to get home much faster.

If you're fed up with your current cell service and you have been wanting to switch, I would recommend Verizon - right now, they're offering waived activation fees for phones (and also tablets) through June 11th. You can also get $100 off* (woohoo!) select smartphones, with code VZWDEAL.

Did you know that Verizon is the #1 U.S. cell service provider for speed, data, reliability, and overall network performance, too? You can check out their handy dandy performance results page here if you want to compare stats.

Don't forget to check them out for awesome deals on the new Galaxy S7, too (Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge), as well as the HTC 10 and the iPhone SE.

Have you ever had an issue with your phone because of spotty coverage, or perhaps you were over your data limit? ('fess up - it happens to all of us!)

*Disclaimers or Restrictions: Waived activation available through 6/11; $100 off select smartphones available through 6/30. Both the waived activation and $100 off are available online only and cannot be applied to upgrades. $100 off select smartphones does not include the Samsung Galaxy S7 & Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10, or the iPhone SE.


Five lucky readers in this group giveaway will each win a $100 Verizon gift card! {that's $500 total that we are giving away!}

Enter via the widget below. Giveaway will end on Thursday, June 30th, at 11:59pm EST, and is open to U.S. residents ages 18 and older.

Good luck!
