Thinking about a Verizon smartphone upgrade? Its a harder decision with only 2 year contracts
If you had not heard Verizon eliminated their 1 year contract plans. This means whatever phone you get, you will be stuck with for almost two years. Given that you might want to make sure you get the latest technology you can, like 4GLTE which should be rolling out broadly over the next two years. If you can wait till August 4, 2011 the rumored date of the Droid Bionic release, this should be the most feature rich smartphone on Verizon when released. There is some hope for 1 year contracts. There have been reports on the web of customers no longer under contract being sent an email inviting them to accept a new 1 year contract. The problem is no one knows if that includes a phone upgrade and if it would remove a grandfathered unlimited data plan.
