Verizon Wireless, as of today, is making all mobile phones plans and data plans available on a month-to-month basis.Â That’s right, no more one or two-year contracts requires as long as you bring your own device.
Just to be clear – Verizon month-to-month customers must bring your own handset as these customers will not receive discounts for equipment purchases.
My hope is that all US-based cell phone carriers follow suit.Â As I’ve blogged before, T-Mobile has a similar program called FlexPay that allows you to access any T-Mobile rate plan on a month-to-month basis.Â AT&T has a program called Pick Your Plan, however these are specialized rate plans that are watered down are not as competitive in terms of price.
