BASKING RIDGE, N.J., March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- If you purchase either a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge with Verizon's device payment option, you're now eligible to get a brand new smartphone every year. Even better: if you pre-ordered a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, you're automatically enrolled in this program if you're on our device payment option.
The Verizon Annual Upgrade Program means you can turn in your phone and upgrade to any new smartphone every year. You can upgrade 30 days after activating a new phone when more than 50% of the device price has been paid.
Don't want to upgrade? You can still pay your phone off in 24 low monthly payments. That's way better than those "lease plans" offered by other companies. They can surprise you with huge balloon payments just 18 months into your agreement, or make you hand over your phone without getting anything for it.
Only Verizon has won awards for the highest nationwide network performance for consecutive years in all three leading network studies, in multiple tests nationwide, year after year. And it's easy to enjoy the better network with combinable offers, like 24 bonus GB of data every year for life and up to $650 to pay off your old phone or contract when you switch to Verizon and trade in your phone*.
For a limited time, if you are switching from another wireless company, or are a new customer who activates a new Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge you can receive $100 when activating a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge**. If you're already with Verizon, you can receive up to $300 when you trade in your previous smartphone and upgrade or add a line for the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge†.
