    Verizon Plans to Discontinue 1-year Contracts Effective April 17




    [​IMG]


    And The bad news just keep on coming from Verizon!!! According to the above document, Verizon will remove the option for customers to sign 1-year contracts effective April 17th. After eliminated 1-year upgrades and the NE2 program, cut out rebates, and tightened up warranty replacement rules. I am trying to understand why they would do this. Only one answer comes to mind Greed!!! What do you Think About It?!!!!

    I think everyone that wanted to go 1 year on the bionic to wait for the quad cores are going to be sorely disappointed.

    This is all that it takes....
    "Give people the best that you have and get them HOOKED! Then, you can do whatever you want...you can take it away little by little and they won't go anywhere."

    Look at the Gas Prices...they can raise them up to 6 dollars and people will still go to the gas station...Big Red has its customers right where they want them...and then having the best phone service (the least calls dropped), why would its customers go anywhere else? Especially when they end up with the BEST Androids.

    You know, with each piece of "news" that comes from Verizon Wireless other carriers are looking better and better.

    Greed is exactly right. Corporate America at its finest. 'We're already raking in billions each month let's see if we can squeeze some more out of our customers.' The one year contract is not such a huge deal to me but all the bull @!%$ they've pulled over the last couple months is gettin ridiculous.

    How much more is VZW going to try and press their luck? This is getting ridiculous. I ONLY sign 1-year contracts. I just signed one for a TBolt and got in on unlimited LTE with a 1-yr contract, but it sounds like they're really trying to make sure that's the last one. I may get a TBolt with my wife's available renewal just to eBay it since I was planning on using it for an upgrade around the year's end for myself - but not with a 2-year contract!

    We really need a new player in the carrier game with a good network. Really. I thought I was paying twice as much as Sprint for the network and that was good enough. I didn't realize that I needed every other benefit taken away from me on top of that to have the network.

    Grrrr....

    I am NOT liking this. Not one bit...totally B.S. if you ask me...I like one year contracts. I really don't want to be stuck with the same phone for two years. This is bad!!

    Dammit...just when I was going to start signing 1 year contracts, with my next phone purchase, they up and pull this BS.

    How do you know if you have a business account? Does having a company discount considered a small business account?

    Hopefully them ending 1 years on the 17th means the Bionic will be released shortly after(21st would be awesome). That would be quite the silver lining in Verizon's dark cloud
