    Verizon increases wait time on upgrades, introduces stricter policies | iMore.com

    My contact ends in October, but technically my upgrade date isn't until next year as my brother was on my account and used my upgrade eligibility for an iPhone5, and then assumed liability on his line... my current iPhone5 was a full retail purchase... and will likely go full retail or 3rd party purchase going forward, and month to month with Verizon service... maybe my local T-Mobile affiliate/reseller will get the next iPhone and I can consider switching from Verizon... we'll see what is happening in October when my contract is up...

    Verizon's coverage is excellent in my location and their new upgrade tactic is not an issue with me. However, if it ever becomes an issue, I won't hesitate to go to a competitor........Anyway, thanks for posting the article, Keith.

    This is from the Droid Life article:

    "Upgrade eligibility begins at the end of 24-month contract. The change allows customers to plan on a single upgrade date for each of their connected devices"

    Verizon Confirms Our Report: Upgrade Eligibility Changes to 24-month Cycle, NE2 Credits Gone as of April 15 – Droid Life

    What does that mean that all of your devices will have a single upgrade date?

    My upgrade is in Aug but like when I upgraded to my current 4S I waited until Dec. 2011 to get it. It is not an issue for me either as I would rather wait so make sure the next Gen iPhone that is out at time of my upgrade will be worth me pulling the trigger. Although I know I will.!!
