Verizon Extends Return Period for New Devices From Now Until January 15

If you are planning to pick up a new phone from Verizon between now and December 25, you’ll be pleased to learn that you have an extended window to return it should you decide it’s not the phone for you. Big Red, according to their updated return policy, is giving holiday purchases up until January 15 to return new devices. And actually, if you purchased a phone as far back as November 22, this covers you as well.

Here is the updated policy:

Purchases made between November 22 and December 25, 2012 may be returned or exchanged through January 15, 2013. All other provisions of Verizon Wireless’ Return & Exchange Policy continue to apply, including the restock fee.

Normally, Verizon only gives you 14 days to return a phone, but just like last year during the holidays, they are extending the trial period. The same restocking fees still apply.

    Verizon is such a giving company. They always have their customers’ interests in mind.

    really nice feature….extra days to play with the note 🙂

      same boat. i realize i miss the compactness of my s3, but note 2 just physical size is the most annoying feature. screen is fine, but holding device and i’ve yet to really utilize the stylus. that said my antenna / 4g has improved. guessing bigger phone, bigger antenna.

        Im luving the note and even though im not using the pen, its nice to know its there, however, you banged the nail right on the head……coming from a gnex up/down….. 0.12 / 0.06 to 8.27 / 1.65 ….thats worth $700 right there! And btw, 5h5m screen and im still at 69%……gnex didnt last 5 hours turned OFF lol. I dont think mine is going back although i do admit lusting for the dna

  • Does this apply to my Note 2 I wonder? Technically I didnt get it until the 27th but I preordered a long time before that.. I am thinking I want the White one..

    Bet Apple products not included. They have their own polices.

      I actually returned my I phone 5 back no problems. I think they all fall under the same return policy

        If I bought my phone last year between November and January, can I return it this year between November and January since it doesn’t say this year?

  • Drew

    Does this apply to purchases made at Best Buy?

    • alpha

      Best Buy has their own return policy. They do have extended holiday returns, as long as the purchase falls within the qualifying timeframe.
