Verizon Edge is a program that provides you the flexibility to upgrade early and pay for your device over 24 months rather than paying for it all upfront. You’ll make a monthly payment until your device is paid off.
After 30 days, if you’ve paid for at least 75% of the Edge device, you’ll have the option to Edge Up to a new device without any upgrade fees.
To be eligible to Edge Up, your original Edge device must be returned in good working condition and have no significant damage as determined by Verizon Wireless.
Note to customers with Edge Agreements signed prior to 6/1/14: You’ll keep your 24-month Edge Agreement, and you'll have the option to Edge Up to a new device after paying 50% of the original device and returning the original device to us in good working condition.
Note to customers with Edge Agreements signed between 6/1/14 and 10/15/14: You’ll keep your 20-month Edge Agreement, and you’ll have the option to Edge Up to a new device after paying 60% of the original device and returning the original device to us in good working condition.

Because Verizon Edge is an installment agreement to pay for equipment over time, we check for financial good standing on any account in your name. If you’re not currently eligible for Verizon Edge, there’s a variety of ways to qualify for this type of equipment payment option:
Verizon Wireless has maximum limits on equipment charges that customers can defer on their monthly bills based on an evaluation of financial good standing. If your equipment upgrade or line additions resulted in the maximum limit being reached, you may need to select other equipment payment options or make an optional down payment to lower the total amount financed.
All Verizon Wireless smartphones, tablets and basic phones are eligible for Verizon Edge.
Note: Device bundles are not included. All other devices (Jetpacks, modems, etc.) are not eligible for Verizon Edge.
Verizon Edge monthly payments will vary depending on the price of the device, but there’s no finance fee or upgrade fee to join the program. For payment examples, visit the Verizon Edge page in the Shop link at Verizonwireless.com.Back to top

You can, however, Edge Up by paying off 75% (50% for customers with an Edge Agreement entered prior to 6/1/14 or 60% for customers with an Edge Agreement entered between 6/1/14 and 10/15/14) of the device’s full retail price and then turn it in for a new device under a 2-year service agreement. If you don't wish to Edge Up you must pay off the remaining balance of your Verizon Edge device, either in full or according to the scheduled monthly installments. After your Edge device is paid off, you can purchase a new device under a 2-year service agreement.Back to top
