Technology changes fast. You purchase a smartphone and within a few short months, something new hits the shelves.
If you want to stay on top of the latest technology, Verizon Edge offers an easy way to upgrade to the newest smartphone. Verizon Edge is a flexible equipment payment plan that spreads the retail price of a phone over 20 months. You can also upgrade to a new smartphone in as little as 30 days if 60 percent of the full retail price of the smartphone has been paid.
Here’s how it works: Choose the phone you want and sign up for a service plan. The full retail price of the smartphone will be divided over 20 months. After a minimum of 30 days and payment of 60 percent of the phone, you can Edge Up to a new smartphone. It’s as easy as that.
There are no finance charges or upgrade fees with Verizon Edge. You can save up to $25 on monthly line access per Verizon Edge smartphone on The MORE Everything Plan, depending on the data allowance chosen, and you can opt to put the first payment on your bill instead of paying at the time of purchase. Terms for Edge customers who enrolled prior to June 1 will not change until they pay their remaining balance or Edge Up to a new device.
NOTE: Verizon Edge was originally announced on July 18, 2013. As updates to the plan are made, this article is updated to reflect the current terms and conditions.
