Verizon Wireless made a big announcement last night, introducing a new unlimited data plan in response to increased pressure from T-Mobile and Sprint. For a limited time, Verizon is offering a number of top devices for free when you switch from a competitor and go with its latest plan. This includes some of our favorite devices on the market right now: iPhone 7/Plus, Google Pixel, Moto Z Droid, Samsung Galaxy S7/Edge and more.
There a few details worth going over here: you’ll need to currently be on a plan from a competing provider and willing to trade in your current device (list of accepted devices). Also, you’ll have to opt for a device payment plan and Verizon will issue credits off-setting your monthly balance over the course of 24 months. Full details on this offer and Verizon’s new Unlimited plan can be found here.
