Verizon Communications Inc. as a carrier is naturally into handsets as well. Tech21 is the leader in impact protection for mobile devices. It recently declared the launch of its Evo Active Series of Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases. These are for sale exclusively at Verizon. The series is available both online and in Verizon stores nationwide. It ensures drop protection from the treadmill to the trail – without compromising style. Tech21 continues to push the boundaries of impact protection through its all-new 3-layer drop protection technology. It prevents the force from passing directly through the device.

Verizon’s Love-Hate Affair with Handsets
We have read in the past about Verizon offering different handsets for its users. The iPhone 7 is no exception to the same. The firm had taken part at the Nomura Media, Telecom and Internet Conference. It also had a one-on-one talk at the event. At that time, the first few reports of exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices were trickling in. A few weeks later, Samsung itself asked all such devices to be recalled. Nomura estimated that more than 1 mn units had been sold to end consumers.
U.S. operators had been taking pre-orders since early August. Samsung said in a separate statement that it had started an exchange program in the country for the Note 7. Major U.S. retailers Best Buy and Target also said they had halted sales of the Note 7. Verizon had said that if a customer wanted to return or exchange the Galaxy Note 7, it would be possible. The firm would waive through September 30 the restocking fee it charges customers.
T-Mobile US is majority owned by Deutsche Telekom and it also issued a statement. It said that it would also waive restocking and shipping charges to customers who want to return the recalled phone.
As far as the iPhone 7 goes, we have also read about a couple of events about exploding devices. However, such events are few and far apart. They also won’t have much of an effect on Verizon directly. In fact they may hardly affect Apple as well. Verizon has its own issues to deal with. And these are visible in its run at the stock exchange since a few months.
