    Hey all. I currently have business account with Verizon but now need another line for me to use as a personal line. Should I get a 1 year contract or 2. How often can I upgrade with 2 year. Thanks

    I do 1 year contracts personally. On a 2 year, you can upgrade every 20 months.

    Yea I think one year is better even though price is a little bit more. The way how phones are popping out, its hard to stay with one phone for 2 years lol

    Exactly! Phones are about $70 more but you'll pay more than that in the additional 12 months.

    One year, so you will not have phone envy. Just read that effective April 17th they'll no longer offer one year contracts unless you're on a business, govt, or small business account.

    Definitely get a one year while you can, the only catch is the one years will be gone right before the really awesome phones like the Bionic com.
