Qwest is giving their wireless customers 60 days to find another carrier. According to a press release the company states that their current customers can switch over to Verizon and keep some of their perks. However, their company also offers some other suggestions on their web site which include the following information:
Qwest will discontinue all Qwest Wireless service on Oct. 31, 2009.
· There is no early termination fee when disconnecting Qwest Wireless service.
· Qwest Wireless phone numbers are portable. Customers who switch to a new service provider, prior to Oct. 31, 2009, will be able to transfer their wireless phone numbers to the new service provider.
· Qwest is an authorized agent for Verizon Wireless. Qwest Wireless customers who select Verizon Wireless as their provider can take advantage of combined billing and exclusive handset offers from Verizon Wireless.
· In September and October, when Qwest Wireless customers who have not changed wireless service providers make a call, they will be routed to a live Qwest service representative, who will remind customers that Qwest is discontinuing Qwest Wireless service and a new service provider needs to be selected. Once the customer service communication is complete, calls will be connected as dialed.
It seems that Quest is just posting this reminder to those Qwest customers that haven’t made the switch to Verizon. If you fall into this category you may wish to make the switch before the deadline.
