Verizon Wireless is another carrier that has announced early upgrade promotion and this one takes “early” to a whole new level. While AT&T allows its customers to grab a new phone every six month, Verizon Edge customers are now able to upgrade their phones after just 30 days. Seriously, if you are on Verizon Edge, you can have a brand new handset every month. Probably right now you are tempted to think that this must be the best program ever, but hold on your excitement until you learn all the details.
New Verizon Edge Plan – How it works.
Verizon’s promotion would be the most awesome deal currently in effect, hands down, if it wasn’t for a tiny requirement the carrier wants you to meet. As you know, Verizon Edge is a month-to-month service that allows you to buy a new phone and spread its cost over 24-month period. After this time you can upgrade your device.
Now you don’t have to wait two years to have a new phone. You can grab a new handset after just 30 days on Verizon Edge; however, in order to be eligible for the promotion, you need to have at least 50% of your phone paid off. Given the prices of new phones nowadays, it would be about $250-350, so the requirement is actually not that tiny.
Of course, you will still have to trade in your old phone. More over, the carrier requires at least six months of good payment history and you will have to pass a new credit check. Verizon is calling this new upgrade program “promotion” implying that it is not permanent; however, no expiration date is given.
