Mobile Phone-Buying Changes Again
First T-Mobile simplified the process, then AT&T, and now Verizon is improving the process. (As a side note, when Sara and I decided to switch providers, Verizon had the most complicated plans!)
This month's change? Verizon will no longer offer 2-year contracts and will not subsidize the price of a phone, thus unbundling devices from service or usage fees. It's a win for consumers as you'll be able to switch among carriers without waiting finishing your two-year sentence. (Be aware that not all phones work with all American mobile providers)
How good is this for consumers? It's really good. Now you can switch carriers if there's bad reception in your house or office, and you can save money buy buying less data or combining accounts with other people in your family or house.
