Why Edge?

Hi my wife went in to purchase the iphone 6 today and really unknowingly got put into the Edge program.  If we won't need early upgrades, and can purchase the phone in full at the new every 2 price, then what's the benefit?  Why pay $749?!  Thank you

There is no real difference. You pay the same either way. Just because it looks like you are paying less for a contract phone. what you didn't pay actually bundled into the contract and you'll be paying it off one way or another. If you didn't upgrade for a year afterwards you end up paying for 50% of a device you never owned. That's the catch 22.

Whether it is an advantage or not depends on your plan, if you have a More Everything with 6gb or more you get $25 off the $40 line access fee for the phone.  So if your phone costs $749 divided over 24 months it would be roughly $31/month but your line access is discounted by $25 so your monthly cost is $6 more, which over 24 months is only $144 more.  If you are doing a 2 year contract and pay $299 up front it actually costs more.  If you have less than 6gb/month plan the savings is only $15 and not any deal unless you desire to upgrade early.
