It is possible that the series takes place in the near future, allowing a flashback to have a Verizon logo.

Actually, it has been established that the show takes place in the present, not the near-future. I wish I could recall more details, but there was an episode in late 2000 in which Sam, in one of his usual "I'm-hung-up-on-something-for-the-entire-episode" bits, keeps nattering on about when the millennium actually ends and how most people think it's going to end on New Year's Eve and so forth. The key being that he's talking about it as a current event. If this is the case, the Verizon product placement was a big slip-up. I remember watching this episode and going "Oops!" when I saw it. Nice catch.

Nice catch. Reminds of the famous slip in Die Hard II--where Bruce Willis makes a call on the East Coast with a phone booth with Pacific Bell plastered on it.

They have made it very clear that there is no specific year in which the West Wing takes place. Therefore, this really can't be an issue.
