Verizon Wireless to Eliminate One-Year Contracts

Not Happy

I have only ever gotten one-year contracts. I've never had a phone last two years, and these days even if it did, with the way technology is moving, any phone I get will be obsolete in a few months and I'll want a new one in a year anyway. Just because the majority of people sign up for two-year contracts doesn't mean they should eliminate one-year contracts for those of us who do use them. I figured they were making money off of me...I pay more for the phone, and I buy a new one every year.

I wrote an email to Verizon about this and they actually just called me to respond to it. Basically they said sorry, but we'll submit your feedback and it will get reviewed because all feedback is looked at. Oh, and she also mentioned that early upgrades are going away too! So if you have a two-year contract and opted to upgrade early in a year, you can no longer do that!

A little background - I'm the secondary line on a family plan, so since I have never been able to do an early upgrade (only the primary line can do that), I have always opted for one-year contracts. My husband does the early upgrade and I do the one-year contract.
