[quote]So did you have a phone before the note? If so, that's probably the phone they want you to trade in, as they haven't fully recouped their subsidy from you[/quote]
Right. In exchange for letting you edge early, they want the phone.

This is 100% incorrect and untrue. Don't listen to UltimateParadox.

| Tech Board|| re: Is Verizon Edge a good deal? - Joe on 7/10/14 at 11:31 pm|
To make it simpler: Get a discount on the phone up front (I.e $199 with a two year contract instead of 650 full retail) or pay full retail for the phone and get a monthly discount on your plan.
Get your discount up front and sign a contract, or over time with no contract and get new phones more ...
| Tech Board|| re: Is Verizon Edge a good deal? - Joe on 7/10/14 at 11:30 pm|
And that article about being ripped off is bull shite. It's before you started getting the $10/$25 month discount. I showed the math before. It's really freaking simple:
If you are on 10gb or higher, it's a no brainer. If you are on a lesser plan, it's a little more expensive but you get a new pho...

[quote]Can I switch to edge now? Before my contract is up, but without purchasing a new phone right now?[/quote]
EDGE isn't a plan. It's a way of paying for the phone every month.
You get a discount off your MoreEverything plan when you choose to pay for your phone with EDGE.
| Tech Board|| re: Is Verizon Edge a good deal? - Joe on 7/10/14 at 10:13 am|
Yes you own the phone, and the discount stays on. So your bill would be significantly cheaper from month 20+ until you decide to get a new phone. ...

You get $10 off the $40 on an 8Gb plan or less, $25 off the $40 on a 10gb plan or higher.
Also, to the people saying you are stuck paying forever...you have several options.
1. Pay 60% of the phone price (12 payments), turn the phone back...

Poetic Atmosphere case and a tempered glass screen protector is my current setup. Case is super thin, but made of hard plastic. Dropped the thing so many times and no damage has ever happened. Dropped it right on the glass once...shattered the glass screen protector but the actual screen was fine.

| Tech Board|| re: Verizon EDGE - Joe on 5/27/14 at 4:58 pm|
Your math isn't quite right. The s5 is 200 + 30 upgrade fee = $230.
On EDGE, the monthly payment is $25 a month. BUT, if you are on a 8GB plan or lower, you get a $10 discount, so $15/month.
$15 x 12 = $180, or less than the 2 year price of the phone. Granted, that's only a good deal if you...
