    I've been noticing more and more commercials from mobile service providers offering. Obviously they made their commercials poke fun at other providers who are still on a 2-yr contract before you can upgrade.

    Has anyone heard if Verizon will be jumping with this trend to keep competition equal?

    What exactly are the requirements behind the "Upgrade Anytime"?

    I'm sure there are some restrictions/limitations to the application of the "Upgrade Anytime" thing.

    Yes Verizon will start offering VERIZON EDGE.

    Its basically a leasing program where you pay a monthly fee towards the phone and after you've paid half of it you can either trade it up for a new model and begin making payments from scratch or you can just continue to pay monthly fees until you've paid off your current phone.

    You are basically losing the subsidy on Verizon edge, so you would be better off getting the first phone on contract, selling the phone buying the next phones on sale via the etf method until the end of the 2 years contract, and start over

    T-Mobile introduced Jump to help out customers but AT&T Next is made just to decieve people and take their money. I am a customer of AT&T and that's what I heard on the forums. The guy even gave a link to the article.

    Weird, I've never heard of Verizon Edge. But I never liked the idea of leasing in general. Need to look into this and see what it's all about.

    It's not a lease, it's a finance. Once you've paid off 50% of the phone, you may return the phone to Verizon or continue paying it off.

    Tried to look around the VZ website and couldn't see any other contract statements about Verizon Edge. Could you post a link to the Terms and Agreements where this might be listed?

    You won't find much on it on the website since it's still more than 20+ days out.

    Verizon Edge is suppose to start Aug 25th.
    I am OK being on contract. I do not want to lease till I own. Special pricing being on contract is fine.

    Not sure but my friend works for verizon and he sells upgrades for 50 bucks lol when they catch him he's toast. (If you didn't understand that if you're not due for a upgrade for x amount of time you pay him and he'll make you eligible in a day)

    Which makes it a ripoff. Share Everything is pointless if you don't have more than one smartphone. In fact it's a ripoff just like this program. Buy the phone outright and if you want to upgrade then trade into a website such as Gazelle or use eBay. Any of those options are better.

    You have to be eligible for an upgrade in order to qualify for edge. They aren't just going to let you break contract in the middle or early unfortunately.

    I was hoping they would "finance" me a new phone while I am still on contract and paying a subsidy on my RAZR maxx.

    Oh well

    Lol your friend is trying to make a quick buck at his own expense. When he gets caught, not if, he'll be sued by Verzion for every dollar he has made in this "scam" plus lost earnings for Verizon. I don't know the severity and frequency of how much he's "sold" but we're probably talking tens of thousand probably in a lawsuit. On top of that, good luck getting another job after that with his felony charge on his record.

    I just realized how much a rip off edge is. If you are out of contract you should definitely get the subsidized phone and then sell it when you want another new phone. I believe you can then use their 12 month payment plan for the next phone.

    I would like to hope so and what I was told is dependant on a call takers knowledge and training.

    She explained to me if you are on contract (ie you got a phone at subsidized pricing) you cannot use edge until you are off contract and on a month to month plan (24 months later)
