    Upgrade question


      I'm eligible for an upgrade on my phone and I was wondering if I would have to pay up front for my phone if I bought the phone off of verizonwireless.com or would I be billed on my next months bill? I used to have T-Mobile and they would bill me on my next bill for my phone but I don't know how verizon works.
