Verizon Kills “New Every Two” Program, Early Upgrade

Right after the Verizon iPhone launch we witnessed a couple of days back, the network operator has made some changes to its early upgrade policy and also yanked the “New Every Two” program.

The program offering subscribers a credit of $30 to $100 on a new phone purchase every two years will end starting January 16, 2010. With the benefits of the program, an already existing customer could buy a newly launched iPhone at $99.99 instead of $199.99 but starting January 16, new subscribers will no longer benefit from the discount while existing ones will lose the benefits at the moment they renew their contracts.

As far as the early upgrade program is concerned, customers will have to wait for 20 months into a two-year contract to get a new phone at better price. In plain English, if you sign-up now you’ll only be able to upgrade in September 2012. Wonder what other services (and prices for them) will Big Red bring to compensate for all that?!
