    I have an upgrade available. Will I be able to pay the upgrade price as I did in the past? Or do I have to pay full retail? Am I missing something?

    Same question here. Do upgrades even matter anymore?

    Verizon still offers 2 year Pricing for current costumers.

    They offer that you can pay for the phone in installments. You either pay $750 up front or $31.25 a month for 2 years. There are no more $300 and $400 discounts for signing a 2 year contract.

    i bought the iPhone 6 on launch day at Verizon for the subsidized price. Am I still able to get the iPhone 7 for the subsidized price of $199/$299/$399.

    I understand Verizon has changed the model by implementing monthly payments, but would I be grandfathers into the old model?

    Discount prices are offered by the carriers, not Apple.

    The "discount" is the amount they bury in the cost of your 2 year plan monthly.

    go on apple's website and it'll break down the options for you depending on carrier.

    Same discussion as here: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/is-there-no-longer-an-upgrade-price-vzw.1992588/

    Current customers are still eligible for "contract pricing." New customers are not.

    Your wrong.

    Verizon offers a discount on the iPhone along with a two year contract, but only for existing customers.

    4 of us had the same answer (that you were incorrect). We're right.

    My upgrade eligible phone is only showing options to pay full price in installments. I see no discounts on the website at the present time.

    Currently Verizon offers an iPhone SE for $.99 on contract. Other iPhones priced accordingly.

    You're looking at the device payment plan (DPP) that's a 24 month program.

    Not... To be confused with a 2-Yr Contract Upgrade. That's a one time charge of 99 cents plus tax. These are not advertised on the web. Only for existing customers that call in.

    Are you saying their website is listing the wrong pricing?
    --- Post Merged, Sep 7, 2016 ---
    So I will have to call? They will not give me this discount if I walk into a store?

    The correct term your looking for is subsidized.

    No. if you're eligible and logged into VerizonWireless.com, 3 prices choices will be available. You don't need to call in.
