Like I said over at the AT&T forum; with all the good news we are receiving from CES, we should’ve expected some bad news in the mix. After changing their policy for two year contract holders, Verizon still has some more changes in store. Verizon has trimmed your return opportunity to figure out if you want to keep your new device from a good 30 days’ time, down to 14 days for every new purchase. This means you have only 2 weeks to figure out if you want the phone or not, and to be honest, that doesn’t seem too bad. For the most part I see this as a way to launch devices at a faster pace without the worry of returns being used as a new phone replacement every month.
For Example; I bought a G2 from T-mobile, and a month later (35 days) the HD7 came out and I wanted that to replace my G2, but it was too late. So I bought the HD7 without contract, and then a month later (40 days) the Nexus S came out and once more I wanted that as well. They don’t want people to use a device, see a newly released one and jump on it, so they are limiting the time frame.
What are your feelings towards this change?
