At a quick glance it looks like its just for a google phone - not an iPhone and others as you listed OP

Spend $185 (over 24 mos) to buy a phone you'd normally pay $650 for.

These arent the same the same 2-year contract buys you used to have to do. These keep your same post-subsidized plans, and pretty much adds subsidized phone pricing.

This.

Still using 30-40gb on my Galaxy S4 for $90/mo on my grandfathered unlimited plan.

Suck it, Verizon.

I'm not seeing anywhere that it says $10 a month, they all say $24+ a month. And I don't see it for the iphone either.

The Verizon contract experience: Walk 3 hours into the forest, burn all your money, and shove pinecones up your ass. Yes, it's painful... but UNLIMITED PINECONES!!!

Exactly! Im not sure what their game is outside of roping people in for 'contracts' again - but for now they're cheaper than the non-subsidized plans they used to offer.

Obviously Verizon is in a play for market share vs profitability. As a Verizon customer I applaud their shift for marketshare.

Just went to ATT after 16 years with Verizon. Att had buy one iPhone get two free. I walked out with three phones and only paid for one. Got two I phones and I got the S7 free for being a direct tv customer. Beat Verizons monthly bill by 40 bucks. Verizons answer when I called asking them to match? Go ahead and swap, we can't help you any. So I did.

I hear ya. Wireless companies are pick-your-poisons. AT&T is awful in my area - Verizon is actually really great here (minus their awfully bad billing and billing customer service but thats not a regional thing).

I was not under any contract with Verizon when I did this deal. Its simply a 'buy this phone and we'll finance it for 24 mos. for super cheap' deal. You keep you current plan.

The Pixel is a great little phone. I got one on Fi. It's fast, smooth and I love the size.

Can't go wrong with it.

Glad I went on black friday (week). Got my S7 Edge (could have got the google phone), but I also got a $200 BB gift card (cause i went from samsung to samsung), as well as another $250 BB gift card (cause i got it at best buy) and a Samsung galaxy gear headset. Also got the phone for w/e $28/mo is vs the $33/mo, as well as all the "payments" i made on my note 7 transfered to the edge (pretty much $80 towards it)

This! I have been with Verizon for over 12 years but my last upgrade was the unlimited data. No way am I changing for that. It's cheaper to buy a couple year old phone and roll with it. Heck I am still on a galaxy s4. A couple netflix movies and your already past 10 gigs...
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 1:45:13 AM EST
So if my plan is already $70 for unlimited talk/text and 7gb of data then this would just add another $10 a month ontop?
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 1:49:01 AM EST
I'm in the market, what do these normally go for?

Is this with a contract, or no?

Sort of important for the 5 of us with the grandfathered unlimited data plan.

ETA: Contract phones, lol.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 2:21:30 AM EST
I'm eligible for an upgrade. Still have an S5. Reluctant to visit the Verizon store.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 3:15:21 AM EST
When you said need a new phone I thought you meant a real phone.  My bad.  I'll wait a bit longer to upgrade to the IPhone 7+.











Link Posted: 12/21/2016 4:15:11 AM EST
I just upgraded mine today. Got a S7 for $50. I think I'll skip Best Buy

I guess with all the pressure from other cell providers, they are letting people with unlimited get new phones with the 24 month payment plan. Not the 2yr contract deal/price.

BUT! The iPhones, galaxies, and pixels are on deep discount right now. I got the iPhone 7 plus 128gb for $20 a month. It went down to $8 a month after trading in a 16gb 6s plus.

I bought two more also at $20 a month and just sold my old iPhone 6 pluses.


Normal price is around $38 a month. It's confirmed because I have 3 new phones and still have unlimited on my three lines.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 5:38:04 AM EST
Idk if it's still on or if it was just for business accounts, but I got my wife a new s7 a couple weeks ago for $99 with the 2 year contract discount.

I'm trying to figure out a way to take advantage of this

I probably owe $500 on the S7

Thoughts?
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 6:08:34 AM EST
I've got a Note5 that I need to pay off like $200 in order to upgrade. The phone has given me Zero troubles and works pretty much the same as new.

This is a pretty tough deal, I'm strongly considering it. When I'm done paying for this phone in a few months. The tech junkie in me will want a new phone. Oh man... I just bought a shit load of ammo... tough choice

I see where he's coming from. I'm a tech junkie, and I like electronics. I would switch phones a couple times a year.

Since I got the iPhone 6 Plus, I kept it the entire 2 years and it still worked great. I only upgraded because of the sale.

Android phones are nice in the beginning. But after you fill them with apps, music, and factory updates, they slow down a lot.

iPhones just work ,they slow down very little if any, they have much better app support, and they maintain high resale value.

Only the screens crap out and the batteries fail to perform . I had an iPhone and up graded to android three years ago with no regrets. I checked out the new iPhone S7 but didn't like a lot of the interface . .apple says suck it up and live with it. I say why should I when my Galaxy 7s says no problem . .change away and make it like you want it.
