It seems like Verizon is running a special for some of its existing subscribers, which will have the privilege to purchase the carrier's first LTE smartphone for the price of $149 as long as they commit to a new 2-year contract. If you are wondering why you have not heard about the promo, it is because only selected Verizon customers seem to have received a notification about it in their e-mail inbox. How Verizon picks its fortunate subscribers is not yet clear to us – some suggest that this could be a regional deal focused around the Chicago area, while others think the special could be limited to only those Verizon customers who are allowed to upgrade from another device.
Nevertheless, nothing is holding you back from calling Verizon's customer center (800 437 6132) and finding out whether you are eligible for the discount or not, and if it happens to work for you, do not forget to share it with us in the comments.
