Taking advantage of Verizon Edge while still under contract?

Not sure if anyone knows the answer to this, but here goes...

Alright, my upgrade is going to be available on August 12th. However, my contract doesn't end until December 12th.

My question is, will I be able to take advantage of the new Verizon Edge in when it becomes available in August, and finish the ~4 months left on my contract and then be considered month to month, or will I have to wait until December, when my contract ends?

Thank you!

Great question josh995! You can take advantage of the Verizon Edge when you are eligible on August 12th. At this time, you would need to accept the Terms & Conditions of the Verizon Edge program.

Will I be able to join the Edge program when it starts if my contract/upgrade date (they have been moved to the same date) is in Feb 2014?  or will I have to wait until Feb?

According to what Lena said above, you have to wait until you are eligible to upgrade, which would be February 2014.

VZ Edge program is only available to customers under the Share Everything plans.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I'm not sure if I understand the answer to to original post, or a later one.

My phone would have been eligible for upgrade in Oct or Nov. Then, when Verizon extended the time to the full 24 months of my contract (of which I didn't have any say in, and when I signed up, I was supposed to be eligible for an early upgrade).

My contract is now up on 2/22/14.

Since I now have more than 1/2 of my commitment paid for, will I be eligible for Edge when it comes available on 8/25? I think this would only be fair since Verizon would not only be getting the price of my monthly Share Everything, they would also be getting the price of the new phone on top of it.

In other words, will current contract customers be eligible for Edge if 1/2 of their current contract has been fulfilled?

Yeah, I felt that it was promising you one thing to get you to switch carriers, then changing the rules. Sprint didn't do that with me. It would be nice if Verizon would throw us a bone on the Edge as they would still be winning (since they aren't reducing the monthly fee like T-Mobile did).
