Coverage is back for Verizon Wireless customers.
After spotty coverage for 26 hours earlier this week, the cell phone giant is giving credit to customers for lost service. Although they declined to speak on camera Thursday, company reps say customers will be able to get their money back for time lost.
Cellphone users will have up to six months to make their complaint, but for some who have already lost time and money because of the outage, the credit might be too little too late.
"It did crash a couple of times, put me out of business. I couldn't get my voice mail which makes me look unprofessional," explained Ron Sorensen, an area real estate broker.
Martha Stamm, a Grand Junction woman explained how she dealt with the outage. "I thought maybe it was my phone at first so I was trying to restart it and take the battery out. And that wasn't working so I just kinda waited it out," said Stamm.
If you lost service for more than 24 hours in a row, you have 6 months to call Verizon and receive credit for time lost.
