    Question, does Verizon still offer BYOD/no contract discounts (new signup)? Also, aside from EDGE and an introductory 0% APR credit card, what options do I have for 0% interest financing on 4x iPhones (6-12 months)? We currently have 4 iPhones on AT&T 10GB postpaid and 3 iPads on individual Verizon month-to-month plans and I'd like to consolidate them all on a 30-40GB plan promo. However, we don't want to upgrade phones frequently so I'd like to make sure I can "grandfather-in" to BYOD discounts.

    This part is of particular concern to me:

    Verizon doesn't do any BYOD discounts. They only give you a discount if you buy a phone on Edge and only for the duration of you making payments on the phone.

    I've heard people say you can add the discount to your account manually. Supposed to be an option under features or something

    They have offered it. My only question is if they still offer BYOD discounts.

    Yes Verizon still offers the same discount if you bring your own phone.

    Does it apply to new sign-ups, too?

    They do starting tomorrow. $15 line access fee for BYOD or using Edge

    ----------

    BYOD or use EDGE to get the line access fee reduced from $40 to $15.

    "Customers who choose Verizon Edge when purchasing or upgrading their smartphone using these promotions, or who bring their own device can add those phones to MORE Everything plans for $15 monthly access."

    I switched from ATT to Verizon with three phones on 10 gig shared 3 days ago. What they told me that I will get $25 discount on each phone because I paid full price at apple store. I didn't see the bill yet. But I will pay activation fee.

    You have always been able to get the discount if you are not under contract. You just had to have it added as a feature as stated earlier.

    The problem with Verizon is it treats BYOD discounts like a red-headed stepchild. There are a lot of Verizon CSRs who don't know about the discount. It's like you need to know the secret handshake to get it added to your account. :rolleyes:
