    Hi everyone! So I just ordered a 6+ on Verizon's Edge plan. The phone will cost me $260 by the time I pay for two years and then it's mine. I can then upgrade to two year or get another device on Edge. I pay $20 extra on my verizon plan per month.

    -Has anyone else done this?
    -Is this a good deal considering the cost of the 6+ will most likely go down in September?
    -Worth it?

    Looking forward to your thoughts!

    Yes. I do the Edge on my wife's phone and my phone. Did you get the $200 off special? I did when I got it on Sunday. It was the dads and grads special. I also picked up an iPad mini for $200 under the same promo

    I'm confused as to how you got $260 if you pay $20/month for two years. Wouldn't that be $480 (24 months x $20) plus whatever sales tax you paid upfront?

    Correction! It's actually $10.51 per month with $67 in taxes paid up front. Sorry! Lol

    No I didn't get the promo! It's an early upgrade on a current line. I'm thinking that's why?

    It's a good deal if your happy with it. Enjoy your new iPhone. I'll wait for September to upgrade. I'm sticking with the 2 year contract More Everything Plan. 4 lines.

    I just did the same. Got the 6 plus on VZW Edge plan. Its a good deal for me, and that's what matters. I def will be fine with this phone for 2 yrs. I did it because I had wanted the 6 plus for a long time and with Edge I was finally able to get it $0 down. Just paid the taxes. 🏻 Enjoy your phone!

    Could be. I was on a month to month contract. All I know is that the 200 off was for opening up an edge contract. Not sure if the early upgrade qualified for that. I plan on paying mine off after a month and going back to month to month. I got 350 on my trade so now I owe 330 on my edge.

    If you think about it, going edge would be the same as going two year contract. Without having to pay anything up front. You pay$40 line access, right. With edge(and at least 6+GB data plans) you pay $15 after the $25 discount per line. Plus, anywhere from $20-$30 for the phone. So you will be paying from maybe $35-$50 per line. When on contract you pay activation (unless you get it waived) of $36 plus whatever your phone costs.
    Just something to think about.
    I will be switching all my lines to edge when my contract is over in August. Then I can sell my current phone and pay off the one I bought on edge and only pay $15 per line. It may be a little confusing but I like the edge plan.
    But then again, will I lose my Verizon nfl mobile with no more everything plan??? Hmmmmmm, decisions.

    You can be on the more everything plan and pay for the phone on the edge plan. I have the $80 per month 10gb more everything plan with 4 phone lines all on the edge plan. It's $15 per month for each line after the $25 discount. It works out to be cheaper than a 2 year agreement on each line. If I want to upgrade early I just pay off the phone on that line. The great thing about the iPhone is that they hold value and I can sell it to cover the cost of paying it off.

    Verizon said I would pay about $20 a month more on EDGE.? I pay about $250 a month, 4 lines, More Everything Plan.

    Interesting. Maybe it doesn't work out the same for everyone. Trust me, I'm an accountant. I crunch numbers forward and backwards before I do anything. Lol. Drives my wife crazy. Over the two year period I believe it was about $100 of savings. I'll have to look up my spreadsheet.

    I thought about doing Edge but it's not a savings for me. My bill is $307/month for 42GB with 4 lines on the more everything plan, with 2 lines on month to month. Got it during a promo where they offered double the data for no extra charge. I get 40 for the price of 20 plus they give me 2 additional GB free per month. Pretty good for Verizon

    My wife and I both have a 6+ on the Edge plan. If you are a person that wants the latest and greatest then it is the way to go. I upgrade my phone every year and it was too expensive to pay for the whole price because I was not available for an upgrade. So I have no complaints with the Edge service except that they keep changing the % you have to pay before upgrading.

    Wait, it wasn't $20 more, it was $8 more. We went over the charges. I found many who were saying they save money were not including the equipment charges. I think they make it too confusing for most people to decide.

    They do make it confusing. More than it needs to be. If someone didn't include equipment charges it would be cheaper for everyone because of that discount. I think it depends on what plan you have. I'm going to check out my spreadsheet when I get to work to see how much cheaper it was. Maybe it wasn't as much as $100 over two years. It's been almost 8 months since I did it.

    Good day everyone! Lots of conversation here. I'm liking it! According to Verizon, the only extra I'm paying is $10.51 per month for the phone. I typically pay $160.00 per month for two lines on a 6GB plan. They confirmed that going forward my bill should be looking around $171.00-$172.00.

    Does that make sense? Just wondering where the $15.00 that you guys are talking about comes in? and how the $25.00 discount works now?

    I'm confused? Anyone want to help me punch numbers and figure this out?

    If you have a 10gb more everything plan you get $25 off per line on the edge plan. It's $15 for a plan of 6gb or less. I could be off on the small plan gb. I have the 10gb plan. So the regular price per line is $40. On the edge plan you get it for $15 if you have a 10gb more everything plan.

    This is from the Verizon site. Looks like they have changed it a little.

    Lines with an active Edge Agreement on the MORE Everything Plan receive an offset credit on monthly access charges:

    For active Edge smartphone lines on MORE Everything Plans up to 4 GB, your monthly access charge is $25. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $15 credit.

    For active Edge smartphone lines on MORE Everything Plans 6 GB and higher, your monthly access charge is $15. However, it will show up on your bill as a $40 charge with an offsetting $25 credit.

    For active Edge basic phone lines on the MORE Everything Plan, your monthly access charge is $20. However, it will show up on your bill as a $30 charge with an offsetting $10 credit.

    See, that's where the confusion comes in. Seems it would be better just to say, " It's $15 per line.", and leave it at that. "It will show as $40 on your bill, but then you get a credit for $25." is nuts. They should just set a price per line and leave it at that. See, after reading what you said, I still don't know how I would come out. I just started the 10gb MEP this month. It was 8gb.

    Ok. Here is how mine breaks down. If I bought my 64gb 6 plus on a 2 year agreement I would pay $400 upfront for the phone plus a $35 activation fee plus my month service at $40 per month x 24 months. Total is $1,395.

    Under the edge plan I pay the total cost of the phone $850 over 24 months plus the cost of service at $15 per month. Total cost is $1210.

    That's a savings of $185 over two years.

    The $80 per month for the 10gb more everything plan is the same regardless of the route you take.

    My issue with the whole Verizon Wireless model is that you only get the discount if you use the Edge program. In my opinion, the discount should be available for customers who bring their own devices or pay the full price upfront. AT&T offers the per line discounts to Next, full price and BYOD customers, as does T-Mobile.
