    There was one more perk to Verizon's New unlimited plan that was announced yesterday. At the very worst time ever to buy a phone Verizon will actually give you a free aging flagship just before all the new flagships come out when you trade in your current device. The fine print states that you can get up to $792 worth of credit which will be applied over a 24 month period. Your trade in must also be in good working and cosmetic condition. This also requires you to port in your number from another carrier. Your trade in phone should also be fully paid off. You can grab any one of the following devices for free: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the LG V20.

    You must trade in one of the following device:

    • Samsung Galaxy S6
    • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
    • Samsung Galaxy S7
    • Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
    • Samsung Note 5
    • LG G5
    • LG V20
    • HTC 10
    • iPhone 6
    • iPhone 6 Plus
    • iPhone 6S
    • iPhone 6S Plus
    • iPhone 7
    • iPhone 7 Plus
    Otherwise you can trade in one of the below devices and pay just $5 per month for your new phone:

    • Apple iPhone SE
    • Samsung Note 4
    • Samsung Galaxy S5
    • LG G4
    • LG V10
    • HTC M9
    via Verizon

    o_O comes from the CEO who said, who needs unlimited data, and that they would not be caving to pressure like the rest of the market.

    Gotta Love the way that they replaced the two year contract with the spaced out credit on a "free phone" whats even more ripe about this is that it is "last years phone" ...just more shenanigans from VZW.

    Yea that's what I tell people. Bill credits over 2 year span is a contract, it's just presented differently to make it seem like such a good deal for the consumer.

    And I call Hooey to anybody that says this makes it more affordable for the average Joe.

    You have to pay up to $792 up front and then they slowly give it back to you over 2 years.

    Just how is this more affordable especially for a phone the VZW will most likely claim as EOL after less than a year and being abandoned on updates?

    The only money you pay 'up front' is the local sales tax on the full retail cost of the phone. On your first 2 bills, you will pay the full monthly installment of the phone, and on the third bill you will have a credit for the first two payments and the third. Going forward, you will have a credit as well. So you are never actually paying the phone up front.

    Sorry but what am I misunderstanding about the first condition I have highlighted with the ad ?

    At some point you will incur a charge on your credit for that amount.

    and as far as people staying with the carrier ... sorry they do not qualify as per the first statement as well. You have to be switching from another carrier.

    So much for loyal customers, eh?

    Yeah, most of the time you have to switch carriers to get the new deal or program..I only get good reception with Verizon so I'm sticking with them!

    That particular ad is specific for encouraging customers to switch to Verizon. If you are already a Verizon customer, you get the same Verizon UDP rates but will not be required to purchase a new phone. As a Verizon customer, I get the promo UPD offer every time I open my Verizon app.

    I don't have issues with the UDP plan, What I have issues with is VZW stating that they are giving you a "free" phone that you have to incur up to a $792 charge before they slowly give it back to you over a 24 month period. So you are actually being charged full price for 'last years phone" they are trying to clear off the shelves and then get stuck waiting for your "rebate".

    And lets not forget if you leave Verizon during that 24 months you no longer get any credits back from that initial payment.

    So instead of a contract to lock you in for 2 years they take your money up front and hold it hostage for 2 years to make sure it is going to cost you extra money should you decide to stop using verizon.
