My husband is one of those people that loves have the latest and greatest when it comes to cell phone technology. I can’t deny that I love it as well but lets be honest folks, it can be really expensive constantly buying new phones. With contracts, early releases, fees, it can turn into a pricey habit.
Verizon recently announced a brand new program called Verizon Edge. This program, if you ask me, is pure genius! It allowes you to upgrade every six months. Yes, you read that right, every six months. Let me break is down a little more for you.
How it works:
-Instead of paying for your phone upfront you pay over a 24 month period.
-At time of purchase you will only need to pay the first month’s installment.
-You will then make monthly payments until either your phone is paid off completely or you decide to upgrade in six months.
If after six, months you decide you wish you upgrade you will need to make sure you have paid for at least 50% of the phone. Once you have paid 50% you will have the option to “Edge Up” to a new one without any upgrade fees.
When enrolling in the Edge Program you will need to have a service agreement for the 24 month period but the program does now require a long-term service agreement.
Of course there are rules, as there are with everything. Brace yourself here these are tough one’s (kidding). In order to be eligible for the “Edge Up” the phone you are returning must be in good working condition and have no significant damage, as determined by Verizon Wireless.
