Verizon Wireless subscribers looking to upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus or the iPhone 4S in the coming months might be in for a bit of a shock, and maybe heartbreak.
Starting April 22nd, Verizon Wireless will apply $30 upgrade fee to the phone purchases of existing customers. This, of course, is in addition to the price of a phone and the toil of a two-year contract.
Verizon has a little bit of semantic fun with the press release, using ”discounted” instead of “subsidized” to refer to its carrying half of the new phone price burden. It’s a transparent substitution, and not one likely to make customers any less unhappy.
