Device Payment FAQs

[FAQs]

General Information
  1. How does Verizon device payments work?

    Monthly device payments provide you the flexibility to get the most current devices by making monthly payments over time rather than paying for it all up front. You'll make a monthly payment until your device is paid off.

    The program requires you to enter a device installment agreement to pay for the device in monthly payments over 24 months.

    • There is a one-time $20 activation fee when you activate a new line through the device payment program.

    • There is a $20 upgrade fee when you add a new device to an existing line through the device payment program.

    • The specific terms and payment amounts can be found in your first bill and your device payment installment agreement.

    • Your monthly device payments will be charged on your bill.

    • You can choose to pay the installments over the full period of the term or in a lump sum to pay off the total price at any time.


  2. Is the device payment program the same as Verizon Edge?

    Yes. Verizon Edge is now called the Verizon device payment program. There is no change to your agreement.



  3. What are monthly line access charges on the device payment program?

    The monthly line access charges vary depending on your calling plan.

    For smartphone lines on The Verizon Plan with an active device payment agreement, the monthly access charge is $20.

    For lines on The MORE Everything Plan® with an active device payment agreement:

    • Active smartphone lines on MORE Everything Plans up to 4 GB, your monthly access charge is $25. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $15 credit.

    • Active smartphone lines on MORE Everything Plans 6 GB and higher have a $15 monthly access charge. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $25 credit.

    • Active basic phone lines on the MORE Everything Plan have a $20 monthly access charge. However, it will show up on your bill as a $30 charge with an offsetting $10 credit.


  4. I'm an existing Verizon Wireless customer; can I purchase a device under a device payment agreement?

    Yes, you can participate provided you're eligible to upgrade and you enter a device payment agreement.



  5. How do I add more device payment agreements to my account online?

    You can have as many device payment agreements as the number of active lines you have, as long as you don't exceed your program spending limit.* There are several options to add additional lines of service online on the Devices page in My Verizon.

    *If your equipment upgrade or additional lines result in charges exceeding your spending limit, you may need to make a down payment to lower the amount financed.



  6. I'm a Verizon Wireless customer and received a letter about not being eligible or having to make a down payment for the device payment program. How can I become eligible?

    Because the device payment program requires an installment agreement to pay for the device over time, we check for financial good standing on any account in your name. If you're not currently eligible for the device payment program, there's a variety of ways to qualify for this type of equipment payment option:

    • If your account has had returned payments and your payment options have been limited to cash only, you can become eligible by paying your balance in full each month for the next 6 months.

    • If your account balance is past due $25 or more when you applied for device payment, you'll need to pay off all balances in full to become eligible.

    • If you have any unpaid accounts with Verizon Wireless that have been disconnected for non-payment and referred to an outside collection agency, you can become eligible by making payment in full to satisfy the debt.

    • If your account has been suspended for non-payment within the last 6 months, you'll need to pay your bill in full for the next 6 months in order to qualify.

    • If your original activation credit decision resulted in your having to pay a security deposit, which we’re still holding on your account, you'll need to pay your bill in full each month for 1 year from when the deposit was originally paid.

    For your convenience, you can make a payment online on the Pay bill page in My Verizon.

    Note: You may also be eligible for device payment by paying a down payment within the first 6 months of service with Verizon Wireless based on the original activation credit decision when you opened your account.



  7. Can I add insurance or other equipment protection options for a device I purchased under a device payment agreement?

    Yes. You can purchase insurance and other equipment protection services to guard against loss, theft, accidental damage, and certain post-manufacturer warranty defects. Learn more about Equipment Protection programs.



  8. Do Verizon's Return and Exchange Policy and a 1-Year Warranty apply to devices purchased under a device payment agreement?

    Yes. Devices on the device payment program are covered by these policies.

    Learn more about Verizon's Return Policy.



Installment Agreement and Payment
  1. Why does the device payment program require two agreements?

    An installment agreement is required to purchase a device under the device payment Program. For details see How do device payments Work?

    In addition, device payment customers must also agree to the Verizon Wireless Customer Agreement, their calling plan, and other important terms for the services they select.



  2. Can I pay more than my scheduled monthly device payment installment?

    No. The only exceptions to making additional payments are:

    • To pay off 100% of your device payment agreement balance.

    • For customers on device payment agreements prior to 5/31/15, you may make the required payment to complete your upgrade.


  3. How can I view my remaining device payment balance?

    Your remaining device payment balance is available for viewing in several places:

    • On your bill
    • Online in My Verizon
    • Or by calling #BAL from your device


  4. How can I pay the remaining balance of my device payment agreement?

    You can pay off your device payment agreement in 3 ways:



  5. Will I still need to make monthly device payments if my device is lost, stolen or damaged?

    Yes, you'll continue to be responsible for your monthly device payments under your device payment agreement until it is paid in full.



  6. What are my options if my device is lost, stolen or damaged?

    There are several options depending on your circumstances:

    • If you have Equipment Protection on your device, you may file a claim with Asurion for a replacement device and continue with your monthly payment.

    • If the device has a defect and isn't physically damaged, it may be covered by manufacturer's warranty. Use our Troubleshooting Assistant to assess your issue.

    • Pay off the remaining balance and then buy a new device on the device payment program.


  7. If I voluntarily suspend service to my device, am I still required to pay the monthly installments?

    Yes. If you voluntarily suspend service to your device (with or without billing), you’ll still receive a monthly statement with your device payment charges. The charges are due according to the payment schedule included on your device payment agreement.

    Note: If your line is suspended under our Military Service Policy, you won't be billed device payments during the military suspension (limit for military suspend is 3 years and 90 days) and your payments will resume upon your return from military service.



  8. Can I have a device payment agreement without an active Verizon Wireless mobile number?

    No. You must have an active Verizon Wireless mobile number in order to have a device payment agreement.

    If you disconnect a mobile number that has an active device payment agreement, the remaining balance of that agreement will be due on your next bill.



Billing and Pricing
  1. What are the line access costs for devices on monthly payments if I have the MORE Everything Plan?

    Lines with an active device payment agreement on the MORE Everything Plan receive a credit on monthly access charges:

    • Active smartphone lines on MORE Everything Plans up to 4 GB, your monthly access charge is $25. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $15 credit.

    • Active smartphone lines using device payments on MORE Everything Plans 6 GB and higher, your monthly access charge is $15. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $25 credit.

    • Active basic phone lines using device payments on the MORE Everything Plan, your monthly access charge is $20. However, it will show up on your bill as a $30 charge with an offsetting $10 credit.


  2. I just purchased a new device on the device payment program. What should I expect to see on my monthly bill?

    Your FIRST bill after signing up for the device payment program might be higher than you expect because it could be prorated. For example, if you upgraded an existing line and did a price plan change, you may have price plan charges and credits that went into effect the day you upgraded.

    Your bill will normally reflect the following:

    • Your prior installment payment
    • The next installment charge
    • If you're on a MORE Everything Plan on an active device payment agreement, a monthly access offset credit for each qualifying smartphone or basic phone line.

    The details can be viewed at the line level portion of your bill under Monthly Charges and Equipment Charges, or in My Verizon, My Bill then the Charges By Line tab.



  3. Where on the bill does it show my device payment line credits and charges?

    Offset credits can be found at the line level page of your bill under Monthly Charges, immediately following your line Monthly Access Charge



  4. Why am I being billed for my remaining balance?

    When you do an early upgrade (for customers with device payment agreements prior to 5/31/15), you are required to return your old device within 14 days. The remaining balance of your device payment agreement is charged on your next bill. Once your old device is received by Verizon and determined to be in good working condition by Verizon, the charge is credited, which may appear on your next bill after receipt of the device.

    If your device was returned to you, it may have been for one of the following reasons:

    • The device was not in good working condition
    • The device was received after the requisite 14 day period
    • You returned the wrong device

    *These devices are returned to the customer with an explanation why it was returned. Learn more about Device Returns and Shipping.



  5. Why do I have a charge for an early device upgrade non-return Fee on my bill?

    If you qualified for an early device upgrade promotion, you may have been required to send us your current device. The early device upgrade non-return fee only applies in the following cases:

    • Different device was received than what was required*
    • The device was received after the requisite 14 day period
    • Device was not in good working condition*
    • Expected device was never received

    * Each returned device will come with an explanation why the device was returned.



Shipping a Device
  1. I received a notification from Verizon about sending in a device. What do I do?

    Verizon sends notifications to customers who've agreed to return their old device when doing a device upgrade to remind them that they must return their old device.



  2. How do I send Verizon my current device now that I have done an early device upgrade or device upgrade?

    The device must be in good working condition and must meet the following requirements or it will be rejected and returned to you:

    • Device has an intact, functioning LCD screen and glass with no cracks or breaks
    • Device and charging port must be intact (not broken or charging port missing)
    • Device and connecting ports must be free of visible corrosion and water damage

    2. Tap iCloud
    3. Slide or tap Find My iPhone to the off position


    TO RETURN YOUR OLD DEVICE:

    1. Prepare your device to be returned:
      • Turn your device off
      • Include the battery
      • Remove any accessories such as chargers, SIM and SD cards.
    2. Use the return materials you were provided to package your device, including the pre-paid shipping label. Keep a record of your tracking number for your reference.

    3. Drop it off at your post office or hand it to your mail carrier.


  3. What will happen if I don’t return my old device under an early device upgrade promotion or while exercising a device upgrade option?

    If you don't send your device:

    • Device upgrade: You'll be responsible for the remaining balance of your original device payment agreement.

    • Early device upgrade: You'll be charged up to a $329 early upgrade non-return fee, depending on the device required to be returned.
      • $99 for basic phones
      • $199 for smartphones
      • $329 for iPhone 6 or newer


  4. Why was my device sent back to me?

    If your device was returned to you, it may have been returned for one of the following reasons:

    • Not in good working condition
    • Received too late
    • Incorrect device

    Each returned device will come with an explanation why the device was returned.

    • The same one that was purchased on your original device payment Agreement
    • A Verizon-issued Certified Like-New Replacement
    • A replacement device covered under a Verizon-approved equipment protection program offered by Verizon, Asurion, Apple or Verizon-approved retailer.

    Learn how to return your device.



  6. If I do an early device upgrade and then decide to return my new device within 14 days, can I continue making payments towards the original device under my old device payment agreement?

    No. Once you exercise the early upgrade option by paying off your required remaining balance, your old device payment agreement is terminated.



  7. I paid off 100% of my device. Can I trade it in and use the trade-in value toward a new device under a device payment agreement?

    Yes. You'll receive the value for the trade, and you can use the balance towards the purchase of your new device, to purchase accessories, or to pay your Verizon Wireless bill. However, you may not use the trade-in value to reduce the retail price of the new device.



Early Device Upgrade
  1. What is an Early Device Upgrade?

    An early device upgrade is an occasional promotional offer available for lines that aren’t currently eligible to upgrade. Those lines can upgrade early on the device payment program, but may require you to turn in your current device. The promotional offers vary and are subject to further eligibility requirements. To find out if any of your lines are eligible for an upgrade promotion, visit a Verizon Wireless store or call (800) 922-0204.



  2. I did an early device upgrade promotion and need to return my current device as part of the promotion. How do I return my device?

    If you're required to send Verizon your current device as part of a recent early device upgrade promotion, you must send the device to Verizon within 14 days of receiving your new device, or you'll be charged the early device upgrade non-return fee of up to $329, depending on the device you are required to return.

    • $99 for basic phones
    • $199 for smartphones
    • $329 for iPhone 6 or newer

    The device you return must be in good working condition, and the same one activated on the upgraded line. Learn how to send your device back to Verizon.
