So we still have to pay the early termination fees to switch? Then they shouldnt say that people in contracts can switch or keep two year contract.

Does anyone known what happens if an existing customer wants to keep their old plan - will they be able to get a subsidized phone as long as they don't switch to the new plans?  Some articles stated that they were doing away with subsidy for new customers & existing that wanted to move to new plan, but didn't know if that meant subsidies will still be available for those staying on old plan -- or if I have to scramble and get a new phone by next week?

Subsidized phones were on contract only...that's why the price was reduced for those phones.  You paid less now and the rest over the course of the contract.

The Edge name was retired July 24th. It's simply called Monthly Device Payment which is what Edge was anyway. And you can't switch. You have to fulfill your contract. You can switch to the new plans but you will pay the $40 line fee until your contract is up. Whether or not they'll let you upgrade is something we don't know yet.

Nope 2 year contract are gone as of the 13th. if they let people on old plans keeps getting subsidized phones they'd still have people on contracts 10 years from now. The whole point of this is to get rid of subsidies. You're better off without the 2 year contract anyway. Too many people get on a 2 year contract then get mad when Verizon won't let them upgrade after 18 months. People also whine about the $40 upgrade fee. Both those issues go away now.

Although I have an unlimited data, four family members that are in my plan have 2gb each.   And three of the contracts will Expire in October.  Those three should be bumped up to 3GB plan for no additional cost.

My contract is up on the 29th, and I wanted a Galaxy 6, but I can't afford $600.00 for a phone even on payment. We're paying 120.00 a month now for 1 basic phone , tablet and smartphone. This really sucks. I don't really care too much about the data, I don't use it hardly at all but the price for the phone is what gets me. I could pay the $199 for it but not no $600
