Beginning June 1, Verizon is changing their upgrade program, Edge, so that the number of monthly payments for a device changes from 24 months to 20 months. Verizon is also changing the percentage of a device’s costs that a customer will need to pay off before they can upgrade from 50% to 60%.

We wanted a way out of our two-year contracts early, without paying an early termination fee. Each carrier has done that for us, although the ETF is really just parsed out differently.
