    I call BS on this statement: “or anything hidden in your bill.” There is indeed plenty hidden in any customer’s bill who chooses this option. Never forget that Verizon subsidizes their devices in their service plans. In light of that, why would anyone want to pay full retail for their phone with them? That’s essentially paying for your device twice! The only plan like this that remotely passes the smell test is T-Mobile’s.

    So every 2 years, you get to use 4 phones while paying the full price of 2 phones, but only have one device to show for it at the end? What are they going to do with all of these turned in devices that are scratched up, water logged, or just broken?

      Make that more like “paying the full price of 2.67 phones.” Never forget that Verizon has the subsidized cost of a phone upgrade built into their service plan charges.

    If Verizon is offering a “special promotion” you can count on two things: 1.) its good for Verizon 2.) its bad for Verizon customers.
