Out of contract More everything discount?

Member

I have gotten conflicting answers to this question and would like to know what the true answer is:

I am currently on Nationwide 700 with 5 phones still under contract.

I have received the early edge upgrade to droid turbo offer for all the phones in My Verizon account.

I am going to do this with 3 of the basic phones I have.

The 4th phone I currently have is an iphone - I will keep that.

The 5th phone, I want to replace with an iphone I purchase for full price.

Now, i know the 3 edge-up phones will each receive the $25/month discount since i will be getting the 15GB data plan.

The question is on the Iphone still under contract and the Iphone I will own.

Do they receive any line access discount?

I THINK they will both get no discount until they are out of contract.

When they are out of contract, they will receive a month-to-month discount - is this $25 off or $15 off each?

Or. will they get NO discount, ever - this was a limited promotion that no longer exists.

I've been told all 3 values by different Verizon reps.

First...you need to be on the MORE Everything plan.

Phones lines that are month-to-month (meaning not under contract) can get a month-to-month discount.  Any other lines cannot receive the discount unless they have a phone financed with an Edge Agreement.  In this case, the discount basically off sets some of the phone's Edge Agreement cost.

The amount of the per line discount is based on the pooled data plan: 8GB or less is a $15 discount.  10GB or more is a $25 discount.

It seems Verizon does not automatically add the month-to-month discount.  To get it, you have to go to My Verizon, Change Features, then add the discount to the line not under contract.  The Edge Agreement discount does get automatically added to lines with said agreement.

yes, i never said i was going to move to the more everything plan, but I am.

so, the month-to-month discount is the same amount as the edge discount (15 or 25 depending on the data plan)?

That is what i was hoping, but have not been able to confirm.

Thanks.

emann,

I don't want this to be confusing to you. At the moment the month-to-month discount is $15/$25 off per smartphone line, dependant on the More Everything plan you choose to move to. This promotion is subject to change at any time.

In other words, when the 2 lines NOT under the EDGE payment plan are out of contract, the $25/line access fee discount may or may not be available.  For lines out of contract NOW, you can get the discount.

As it stands for Verizon to stay price competitive with the other carriers, they are going to have to keep the month-to-month discount "promotion." People have finally wised up to the fact that you should be paying less for a line that does not have a subsidized phone and for Verizon to do away with it is like shooting themselves in the foot.

Agreed.  All I am saying is that the current discount for out of contract lines is NOW.  In 6 months, or whenever the OP's contract expires, pricing structures and plans may be different than what they are today (as evidenced by the changes seen in 2014 alone - -sooo confusing!).  The option for the discount may or may not be there, but the pricing for data and services may be different as well, potentially making the discount a moot issue.

The best advice I can give is to see what the landscape looks like when your contract ends, and grab the best pricing you can at that time.  If the discount is still in play, grab it.  If bot, there may be other plans/discounts that will work for you.

I don't see any such option in "change features". What is it called?

If you are not seeing the "month-to-month discount" for the line you chose to change features, you are: a) not on the MORE Everything plan, b) still on a 2-year contract for that line, or c) have a phone on EDGE for that line.
