Verizon Wireless Officially Ending 'New Every Two' Upgrades
Verizon Wireless has confirmed for the Wall Street Journal that it is ending its New Every Two upgrade promotion effective January 16. Under the terms of the deal, Verizon Wireless subscribers became eligible for discounts (between $30 and $100) towards new phones every two years. Beginning January 16, Verizon Wireless will not offer the New Every Two upgrade to new customers, and will not extend it for current customers after their next upgrade. In addition to dropping New Every Two, Verizon has also tweaked some of its other upgrade policies, though the changes don't apply to all users. Subscribers should check with Verizon to see which policies apply to them. These policy changes go into effect approximately two weeks before Apple's iPhone 4 goes on sale via Verizon.

Damm That sucks!
Glad I have a annual upgrade every year even on a 2 year contract. Especially as fast as mobile technology is Evolving. Verizon is making Sprint look better and better. 😎
Bait! Bait!! Com on guys,...
Sure, they're keeping it for a few people, but a Majority won't get it, and people who sign up for their advertised plans won't get it.
More inaccurate reporting by Phonescoop
Verizon did not extend the length of time for customers to get an upgrade at the 2 year agreement price. It has been 20 months for some time now. There has also not been a policy where they could upgrade after 13 months.

In any event. If a customer is on a two year contract they are eligible to upgrade after twenty months and if on a one year contract they are eligible to upgrade after ten months. The annual upgrade exception allowed those on $49.99 rate ...

No Upgrade Fee On Standard Upgrade?
That is why
Just a quick clarification
This means a nationwide plan 900 minutes or higher, or a nationwide talk and text plan.
Non-unlimited texting plans, and data features didn't get you above that threshold.
So 9.99, or basic voice only plans would never get the annual upgrade.
upgrading after 12 months was called an "Annual" upgrade. It was available ONLY to lines that had a VOICE plan of $59.99 or higher.
This means a nationwide plan 900 minutes or higher, or a nationwide talk and text p
