How Do I Check If Verizon Wireless Service Is Available in My Area?

Verizon Wireless service may not be available in your area. The main reasons are due to a service outage or a maintenance shutdown. You can check Verizon Wireless service availability through their service coverage map. You can also check Verizon Wireless service by contacting customer service and asking them directly.

Verizon Wireless is an American Telecommunications company dealing in wireless products and services. The company has over 100 million subscribers.

The assumption is that Verizon Wireless covers the entire country but the most remote parts. However, you have to be sure that Verizon Wireless service covers your location even though you live in a town.

The best way to check if Verizon Wireless Service is available in your area is through the interactive Verizon Wireless service coverage map. You should check the map if you have trouble with receiving and making phone calls, data connections, applications, media transfers, messaging and setting up or activating your device.

How to Check Verizon Wireless Service Availability

You can check if Verizon Wireless Service is available in your area through the following process:

1. Launch your web browser

2. Search for the Verizon Wireless service coverage map

3. Open the map and scroll to see your location. If the map does not open, click 'Expand Interactive Map'

4. Enter your address in the 'Search Coverage Map' field. You will also be required to input your city, state and zip code

5. Click or tap the magnifying glass icon

6. You can change the type of coverage for which you are searching by clicking the Menu (3-line) icon located to the left of the 'Search Coverage Map' field. The typical options are 4G LTE, 4G LTE without 3G CDMA, 3G/1X Coverage and Prepay Voice & Data. 5G is only available in select locations and currently not on the list.

It is crucial to note that your device has a number of service indicators which you can find on the Verizon Wireless website. The indicators are in form of words or symbols which you can refer to the table to understand what they mean.
