Verizon Wireless and GM's OnStar announced the nationwide availability of the America's ChoiceSM with OnStar plan. The plan allows customers (who have vehicles equipped with OnStar's generation six equipment) to use their Verizon Wireless phones outside the vehicle and send calls from their handheld phones to OnStar's in-vehicle calling system.
America's Choice with OnStar is the first calling plan to integrate handheld wireless service with a fully embedded, voice-activated in-vehicle system and gives those customers the convenience and simplicity of receiving one bill.
The America's Choice with OnStar plan lets customers share Verizon Wireless plan minutes to make and receive calls on their handheld Verizon Wireless phones and OnStar in-vehicle systems. Those customers can simply transfer incoming calls from their Verizon Wireless handset to the embedded phone in their generation six OnStar-equipped General Motors vehicle and can select from two options:
Immediate Call Forwarding - Customers can forward all calls from their Verizon Wireless handheld phones directly to their in-vehicle OnStar phones.
Conditional Call Forwarding ("No Answer/Busy Transfer") - Customers can select to have the Verizon Wireless handheld phones ring four to five times before the call is forwarded to their in-vehicle OnStar phones, giving customers the flexibility of answering either their handhelds or in-vehicle phones.
