HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Verizon is the largest wireless company in the country, with more than 100 million users.
Verizon launched its no-contract plan campaign on Thursday, and the store in Lower Paxton Township was filled with people who were looking for a change.
The company says the move comes after customer surveys indicated that people are looking for simple options and no contracts.
T-Mobile was the first to do this two years ago.
AT&T is still offering contracts, but they have a bring-your-own-device plan.
Verizon has four data options, and if you go over, you will have to pay $15 per GB.
It is recommended that users consult with customer service team members, to come up with the best plan.
In addition to the monthly data fee, you’ll still have to pay a monthly access fee of $20 for a phone, and $10 for a tablet or mobile hot spot.
Customers will no longer benefit from the subsidies on the high-end smartphones.
You now have to pay full price, or you can pay in installments, which could take two years to pay off.
So even though you no longer have a contract, you are still locked in unless you pay off the phone early.
Those who are currently in a contract, can opt out at any time or stay put.
