In September of last year, Verizon Wireless had decided to revive its early upgrade options, just in time for the release of the Apple’s current flagship devices, the iPhone 6s and its bigger sibling the iPhone 6s Plus. At that time, the biggest wireless carrier in the United States had recently gotten rid of its subsidized two year smartphone contracts as well as its Verizon Edge early upgrade program, which had left its subscribers with the option of either buying smartphones at full price, or by way of the Big Red’s then new 24 month payment plan. Fortunately for iOS mobile users, the wireless carrier had a change of heart regarding its early upgrade options.
This year, Verizon Wireless has chosen to expand the coverage of its early upgrade options. No doubt, Android mobile users will be delighted to know that the Big Red is launching an Annual Upgrade Program that features another set of high profile flagship devices, namely the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones, which Samsung recently unveiled a few weeks ago.
Basically, this program allows mobile users to get a new handset every year, and as long as they purchase Samsung’s Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge via an installment plan, they will not be required to spend more in order to upgrade to a newer smartphone model. Subscribers can upgrade as soon as 30 days after they activate a new handset, although bear in mind that they will need to have completed payment of at least half of the smartphone first. So for those who want to avail of this deal, they better be sure they really want to get the Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 Edge.
It should be noted that Verizon Wireless is not the only one offering upgrade programs for flagship devices. As a matter of fact, T-Mobile has its Jump! On Demand program, while yet another major US wireless carrier, Sprint, has its iPhone/Galaxy Forever. Early upgrade programs are considered accessible solutions for people who always want to own the latest iPhone or Galaxy S model, while for wireless carriers, it helps them encourage their subscribers to stay with their network instead of switching to other providers out there.
As for Samsung, it has surely been busy lately. It recently began offering a $30 gift card to owners of its Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge to use its Samsung Pay mobile payment app. And last week, it has seen its latest flagship devices featured in separate buy one, get one special offers from Verizon Wireless as well as from AT&T and T-Mobile.
