Verizon to give discounts to customers with off-contract phones

“Verizon is finally going to give you a discount for off-contract phones,” Derek Kessler reports for iMore. “”

“Starting April 17th, customers of Big Red are going to be able to bring their own off-contract devices onto shared MORE Everything plans at a discount,” Kessler reports. “No longer will they have to pay a subsidy fee for a subsidy they’re not using.”

“Plans at or under 8GB will see a smartphone add-on reduction of $10 (bringing the fee to $30/month), while those with data allotments of 10GB or higher will see their fee sliced from $40 down to $25 per smartphone,” Kessler reports. “This move brings Verizon in line with the its competitors, who have for some time offered discounts for off-contract devices.”

  1. No, it doesn’t bring them in line with T-Mobile. Once my iPhone is paid for on T-Mobile the monthly payment drops by $25. Verizon is still skimming off $10 to $15 per month.

  2. With so much choice in the market, nobody wants to buy a shitty plastic iPhone running the shitty iOS 7, so they have to price it to move merchandise. Otherwise, it’ll just sit on the display shelves taking up space and gathering dust.
