    Verizon’s pre-Black Friday deals are here: Free iPhone XR, Pixel 3, or Galaxy S9 when you buy one

    Verizon on Thursday announced its own early holiday promos right in time for next week’s Black Friday shopping spree. The carrier is ready to give you a free phone or big discounts on some of the hottest and most expensive smartphones out there when you buy one handsets and activate it on a new Verizon line along with the freebie. The standard buy-one-get-one deal covers all of this year’s flagship iPhones and Android devices from Apple, Google, and Samsung. If you plan to buy an iPhone XR, Pixel 3 or Galaxy S9 phones, you’re going to get a second one for free. If you’re going for two iPhone X, XS, or XS Max handsets, then you’ll be able to save $750 on the second handset instead of getting an outright freebie. Similarly, Verizon will discount the second Pixel 3 XL by $800 when you buy the first one, and the same promotion is valid for Samsung’s most expensive Galaxy phones, the Galaxy S9+ and Note 9. Retailers including Best Buy, Sam’s Club, and Walmart have already offered early Black Friday sales on these devices, or have such deals included in their Black Friday offers. Discounts of up to $300 via Gift Cards will be available as well, and all these promos require buyers to activate the handsets on installment plans with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Verizon’s BOGO offer, meanwhile, is a lot better if you're going to buy more than one iPhone or Android flagship this holiday season. However, the BOGO deal isn't part of Verizon's Black Friday sale, the company tells BGR. The Black Friday deals will be unveiled only next week. The carrier on Thursday also unveiled a bunch of new products that will be available this holiday season: $444 Kyocera DuraForce Pro 2 rugged Android phone $249.99 32GB Samsung Gizmotablet $179.99 GizmoWatch Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Edition $99.99 Orbic Wonder prepaid phone

    This was announced by Verizon's Senior Vice President of Consumer Products at a GSMA event on November 15, and while Verizon does currently offer its own proprietary version of RCS, the change in 2019 will likely see it shift to the Universal Profile being pushed by Google that works across multiple carriers and OEMs. It hasn't actually been confirmed by Verizon that it's supporting the Universal Profile, but GSMA told The Verge that it will, in fact, support Universal Profile 1.0.

    Verizon launches My Numbers app to support multiple numbers on one phone

    Smartphones typically come with one number attached, but sometimes you need access to more than one number and carrying multiple phones might not be the best option. Putting more than one phone number on a single phone is possible with dual SIM technology, and some carriers offer other options as well. However, Verizon is launching a new app that might make the situation a tad easier, even if it isn't cheap. The big red wireless carrier is launching My Numbers today, which will allow users to add up to four phone numbers on a single phone. The app will be available in the Google Play Store (and iOS App Store), and it will be free to download. However, Verizon is charging $15 per line per month

The app is called My Numbers, and it can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store. It's an additional $15 a month per number, but that's significantly cheaper than purchasing a second, third, or even fourth phone. The app sets up separate voicemail and text messaging boxes for the different numbers as well. There are other apps like Burner, Flyp, and Google Voice that have relieved some of the stress of the business and personal phones dilemma, but
