Now, that is the greatest thing I've heard when it comes to pricing. Wish Verizon would jump on board.

I'm hoping u r being sarcastic. Verizon has always offered the same price to new and existing customers. Not to mention if u pay more than $34 you get the ne2 credit which is additional $ off the phone and if ur registered online u can upgrade every 12 months and secondary lines can upgrade every 20 months.

But you didn't get the new customer pricing at 12 months on Verizon - I think you had top be at 20 months.

Wrong ibap. There is only one set of pricing. I just upgraded my phone last week. I paid the same price it showed for new customers online. this article is just another example of another attempt to copy VZW.

If your buyong your Phones at a Direct Store up until a few weeks ago Secondary lines and annual upgrades did pay more then a new customer. But when they changed price plans around Now when you go into A dIRECT vERIZON you will pay the prices you see online after a mail in rebate. Dont know how long that will last but for now people seem to be happier. On annuals you still pay one year pricing though. I myself work for a Premium Retailer and we price match everything. Are prices are the same at a Direct Store but if a customer comes in with a news paper add from like Best Buy or somewhere like that then we can price match. We also still have CellBright boxes with no plans of getting ridd of them, For those customers who have older phones still and cant use back up assitstnt and if the screen is black and you cant see it to load if you already didnt.

Verizon has never said they were the cheepest! We have only ever said we have the largest net work. Which we have and proven by a thrid party. Have you ever heard of you get what you pay for? Not that T-moble is bad not what i'm saying. But it takes alot of money to keep towers working right and making sure the net work is running smooth. It only benifits the consumer.

Verizon has had VIP (read that's supposed to be discontinued) for a while, Sprint has had Premier for a couple years now and I think AT&T has a yearly upgrade too but none of them restrict the type of phone
