Verizon Sends Free Daydream VR Headset For Google Pixel Delayed Shipment
Verizon Wireless, an American company under Verizon Communications, announced that the shipment of their Google Pixel and Pixel Xl are getting delayed. The representatives of the company are calling their customers who are expecting for the smartphones delivery to inform them regarding its shipment. Aside from that, they are also being offered with a free Daydream View VR.
Verizon Gives Free Daydream VR Headset
According to Yibada, customers of Verizon Wireless who ordered Google Pixel and Pixel XL are being treated to free Google's Daydream VR headsets. The free gadget is Verizon's way of apologizing for the delayed shipping of the smartphone devices. Since the representatives who are calling the customers do not ask for any customers' personal information and they know the activation date for each device, this means that the call is not a hoax or just a show.
All the customers who ordered the 128 GB variant of the Google Pixel XL in November from Verizon were very disappointed to know that the device will not reach them before March of 2017. The promised shipment date is supposed to be Jan. 6, but Verizon informed buyers that it will be moved on March 3. And now, Verizon is trying to appease buyers of the Pixel and Pixel XL by giving them Google Daydream View VR headset for free.
