Verizon Edge is Now Live – Most Top Tier Phones Start at $25.22 Per Month

Shortly after T-Mobile (JUMP!) and AT&T (Next) revealed new upgrade-often, monthly payment plans, Verizon joined the party with Edge. We’ve already compared all three, essentially coming to the conclusion that the options from AT&T and Verizon are nothing short of rip-offs that double charge you for the same device, while T-Mobile’s is at least a somewhat fair choice. But no matter what we think, Edge (which is now live) is an option for those who want to upgrade often and also do not want to have to pay an upfront down payment. Edge will allow customers in good standing the chance to get a phone at a relatively low monthly price and zero down, other than the activation fee and first month’s payment.  (more…)

Earlier this morning, we broke news on a new Verizon plan that will be introduced in the coming days called Verizon Max. At the time, we didn’t have all of the details ironed out, but after talking to sources of ours, think we know almost everything there is to know about a new tiered data plan aimed directly at unlimited customers.  (more…)

Is Verizon Planning a 6GB for $30 Promo to Get Unlimited Data Users to Switch to Share Everything? (Updated)

Yesterday, a reader of ours pointed out a Tweet sent from the official Verizon Support Twitter account (@VZWSupport) that caught our eye as it related to those of us holding on to unlimited data. The Tweet mentioned to a customer that Verizon would soon be launching a promo for unlimited data users that included 6GB of data for only $30, and would also allow them to participate in Big Red’s new VZ Edge (early upgrade) program. We scrolled through hundreds of other Tweets from this account, but this was the only mention of such a deal. We even tried getting them to provide more info, yet they never responded. Sure enough this morning, the Tweet (which we have included below) has been removed from existence.

So what’s going on and what is this new promo? Well, we know a couple of things.  (more…)

During the company’s Q2 earnings call this morning, Verizon CFO Fran “ShamWow”    confirmed that they will offer an upgrade package in the future called VZ Edge. At the time, he wouldn’t dive into specifics, but Verizon has now officially announced “Verizon Edge,” and provided the basics in terms of details. As you know, we first reported VZ Edge earlier in the week. This announcement matches up to our information.  (more…)

Comparing Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile’s New Upgrade Plans

jump

The newest fad in the wireless industry has quickly become upgrade plans. After Verizon and AT&T both extended upgrade periods out to 24 months, we have since seen T-Mobile and AT&T officially announce new options to upgrade, but all signs point to Big Red joining them in August. T-Mobile’s is called JUMP!, AT&T’s is called “Next,” and Verizon’s will be called “VZ Edge.”

It’s pretty obvious that carriers have realized that upgrades are simply another way for them to rake in cash, by implementing fees or locking customers into payment plans that will keep them on their network. So to try to help explain all three of these new plans, I’ve attempted to break down some basic examples below. It’s a long one, so strap in.  (more…)

Verizon to Introduce “VZ Edge” Upgrade Plan, Upgrade to New Phones Once 50% of Previous is Paid Off

Back in April, after extending upgrade periods to a full 24 months, Verizon introduced a new device payment that would allow customers to upgrade phones by purchasing them at full prices with the payments spread out over a 12-month period. According to sources of ours, Verizon will introduce a new upgrade initiative on August 25 called “VZ Edge” that will allow customers to upgrade their phones much more frequently to “stay on the leading edge of technology.”  (more…)

EDGE is a Beautiful, Addictive, and Quite Challenging Game for Android

Edge

Over the weekend, I was introduced to a game called EDGE. I played it for about 10 minutes and knew I would be here on Monday sharing it with you all. In the game, you are a cube whose color continuously changes throughout the course of each level, which adds to the over all brilliant look the game gives off. Using either on-screen or tilt controls, you make your way through each level that is basically a puzzle of sorts.  (more…)
