Verizon Wireless customers residing in Bay and Gulf counties Florida will automatically be credited with 3 months of mobile phone service for each line they have.  The free service is being offered to help those impacted by Hurricane Michael.  Both Verizon Wireless consumer and business accounts will receive the credits.

The storm did some damage to Verizon's network.  The nation's largest wireless carrier says that it is won't rest until its network is fully repaired.  Progress is being made with each passing hour.  Verizon has setup a web page so that you can track exactly what is being repaired and where.

While repairs are being made, Verizon has deployed a network of portable cells to help support the efforts of first responders and other mission critical organizations.  The portable cells have been deployed in the following locations:

  • Bay County Emergency Operations Center and 911 Center
  • Bay County Sheriff’s Office
  • Blakely Emergency Operations Center
  • City of Parker Police Department
  • FDOT Chipley Office
  • FEMA Office
  • Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center
  • Gulf County Emergency Operations Center
  • Lynn Haven Emergency Operations Center
  • Mexico Beach
  • Miller County 911
  • Panama City Police Department
  • Springfield Police Department
  • TECO Peoples Gas, Panama City
  • Tyndall Air Force Base
  • Washington Emergency Operations Center in Chipley

Definitely not true. I just got a call from my job and my bill from work is something around the $2800 figure since Verizon came back online… today is December 10th. It’s only been two months since the storm and I have been being billed since the storm. They said they are crediting the regular bill, just not any data overages. I really dislike Verizon.


Let’s be clear, the service is NOT fixed at all. AT&T bright in mobile service trucks. I’m not stationed at Tyndall (south of Panama City) but came in as a support responder. This is totally unacceptable, for residents and those here to help.
