FYI the VZW Edge payment program is only available to customers on the Share Everything plans and are out of contract.
Also you should really look at the costs of the program when the details are released with the cost of your service plan to determine if it is something that works for you and your family budget.
There is also the option to purchase a used device from Swappa or another third party.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
