HOT DOGS! Just scooped this up from Consumerist:
“Verizon has announced that they will begin offering monthly cellphone plans with no early termination fees. Consumers wishing to take advantage of the plans will be required to pay full price for a phone, or provide their own phone, as Verizon will not be subsidizing the cost of handsets.”
If you already have a plan, like i do, you’ll have to wait until your current contract expires, but then it’s home saling we come! The fact that the plan rates are the same is even better. On the other hand, if you don’t feel comfortable picking up a phone from Ebay/Craigslist/or some other place, you might be just have to stick with the normal way of getting a phone. But at least we now have options!
