As some carriers usually do after the announcement of the new iPhone, Verizon has made it so that all customers who have upgrades on November 15th 2014 can upgrade right now. This means that if you had an upgrade coming up on Verizon between now and November 15th, you can upgrade starting today, you no longer have to wait until your previous upgrade date.
The reason that carriers pull this stunt is to get buy-happy iPhone users to upgrade to a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus now instead of waiting for their previous upgrade cycle to end. This gets Verizon more customers tied to Verizon for another two years which obviously means more money for Verizon. But we have to admit, despite this being slightly shady, it is a very smart business plan that will surely get Verizon many more customers a fresh two years with them. Also worth noting is that the cutoff date for the promotion, November 15th, is right before the holiday season starts, so people that are just outside the eligibility zone that want the new iPhone probably already have it on their Christmas list anyway.
We are sure that there a lot of questions that people are dying to ask right now about the promotion, hopefully this paragraph can answer most if not all of them. First off, if you are just a few days outside of the promotion window to get an early upgrade it would be worth your time to give Verizon a call or simply head down to your local Verizon store and see if they can give you an early upgrade as well. Chances are that they will be willing to bend the rules a little bit for you as long as you have been a good customer in the past. As for people who have multiple lines with Verizon, you should be able to get in on this promo if you just voice to Verizon that you want to. After all you are a customer who is more than likely giving Verizon much more money than a single line subscriber.
Android Police points out, and we would like to as well, that there is some fine print involved in the promotional ad. Said fine print says that the promotion will only be available for a “limited time”. We are not exactly sure how long that limited time is but needless to say, if this promotion applies to you and you want an upgrade then you better act as soon as possible so you don’t miss it.
