Sorry, Guys: No More Free Verizon Phone Upgrades: $30 Fee Starts April 22

11 Apr

On April 22nd, Verizon will begin charging a$30 upgrade fee when existing customers buy a new phone on a new contract. It’s the sad end of the free upgrade era.

Right now, Verizon is the last major carrier to skip the fee. AT&T and Sprint both charge $36, and T-Mobile charges $18. Verizon says the fees will go toward providing “Wireless Workshops, online educational tools, and consultations with experts” for customers—and who says they won’t? But there’s always been a slime factor to giving folks a discount on a phone for signing a new contract, then charging a fee for taking the discount. Verizon ain’t alone on this, but it’s still a sorrowful thing that we’ve got one more universal, idiotic fee. [Verizon via BGR]

Apple just sold an impossible four million in three days—double the iPhone 4’s record

Maybe the iPhone 5 no show wasn’t so bad after all.

These are extraordinary numbers, especially given that the phone’s not even fully rolled-out: you can only buy a 4S in seven countries, with 63 more by the end of the year
