Verizon offers iPhone promotion that gives you the newest model every year
If you are a Verizon customer who just has to have the latest iPhone model every year, Big Red has a plan for you. Imagine turning in your iPhone every year and walking out of the store with the latest and greatest smartphone that Apple has to offer. What kind of evil magic has Verizon conjured up for this plan? 

If you purchase the Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus from Verizon tomorrow using the carrier's Device Payment option, you will automatically have the choice to trade in your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus for the Apple iPhone 7 or Apple iPhone 7 Plus next year. With that option, your 24 month installment plan starts over on the new model. If you decide not to make the trade, you can continue making the installment plan payments on your current phone. After 24 months, that device is yours. 

Verizon's iPhone pricing schedule offers the 16GB Apple iPhone 6s for $0 down (qualified subscribers only) and $27.08 a month over 24 months. The 16GB Apple iPhone 6s Plus is also $0 down, and $31.24 a month over 24 months. The 16GB iPhone 6 is $0 down and $22.91 a month over 24 months, while the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus is $0 down and $27.08 a month over 24 months. Lastly, the Apple iPhone 5s is $0 down and $18.74 a month over 24 months.

If you're coming from another carrier, make the switch, trade-in your old smartphone, and get up to $400 from Verizon in the form of a $300 gift card and a $100 bill credit.

Verizon. Stop holding back features that the manufactures included on their phones.

They Hold Features Back On The iPhone?

No carrier can't mess with the iPhone. Zero bloatware (from the carriers that is) no branding, no added or removed features period.

A 16GB iPhone and no unlimited data plan. Sure, Verizon (facepalm).

On Apple's similar plan, they refurbish them and sell them. The prices I remember were like starting at $500-550 for the refurbished devices, though I can't remember which model and how much storage they were talking about.

How is this different from every other carriers leasing program? I thought every company let's you trade in your current leased phone and start payments again on your new phone?

I don't think it is. I'd imagine they're just sort of rebranding it a bit for the iPhone. Unless Verizon changed that since they introduced the EDGE program and this is exclusive for the iPhone.

I'm still waiting for the Nexus announcement before I pull the trigger on a Moto XPE, but I'm 99% sure that's what I'm going with. Enjoy your new phone man.

You can sell for the iPhone 6s for more than $325 after a year. So it's a rip-off trading in the phone. Just buy it out after a year and sell it yourself.
