Re: Upgrade my device?"

Currently if your last upgrade occurred 11/13/2013 or before which is true in your case. You can upgrade via the Verizon Edge program until March 31, 2014.  On the Edge program Verizon ask you to pay the sales tax if applicable on the full retail cost of your phone up front.  Then they divide the retail cost of you phone into 24 monthly installments (which pays for the phone over two years). Then in addition to that monthly installment, you pay either $20 or $30 for your monthly smartphone line access (depends on your data package) + the cost of your data package.  So for example if you wanted the iPhone 4s then upfront you would pay the sales tax on $450 (cost of the phone) + first months installment $18.97 (no upgrade fee on Edge).

Then after that if you have the 10GB plan or more your monthly pretax/surcharge bill would be as follows

monthly installment for phone = $18.74 +

Smartphone access charge = $20 +

Data access fee = $100

Total = $138.74 + taxes and fees

If you have less than 10GB then the cost would be a bit different

monthly installment for phone = $18.74 +

Smartphone access charge = $30 +

Data access fee = enter the cost of your current or desired data package

I assume but do not know for certain that when your phone is paid off after two years your smartphone access will remain $30 per month but that is not clear on the website. Hope this is helpful

Cheers!!
