Verizon CFO confirms ‘Edge’ early upgrade program but sheds few details


Verizon CFO Fran Shammo has confirmed that the carrier plans to get in on the early upgrade game, following moves by AT&T and T-Mobile. Remaining understandably tight-lipped on the details, Shammo only says that more information will be provided at a later time.

If recent rumors and leaks prove accurate, the VZ Edge program will let users upgrade their phones once they have paid at least 50% of the device cost. As of now, the new deal will kick off on August 25.
