    T-Mobile's been grabbing a lot of headlines lately with its consumer-friendly handset deals and upgrade programs, but it appears that Big Red has similar ideas. The folks at Droid Life have acquired a Verizon document detailing a new VZ Edge program that'll allow folks to trade in their phones once they've paid off 50 percent of the purchase price. To join the program, Verizon will merely require a monthly fee of unknown amount, and in return, folks can get their upgrades early fee free and sans contract. When will customers get the option to do so? According to the doc, launch is scheduled for Q3, August 25th, to be exact. So, if Verizon can stick to its schedule, its customers are just under six weeks away from being free from the tyranny of the new every two upgrade cycle.

    It's all Marketing. They all sometimes do things around the same time as they all pretty much control most of the U.S. cellular phone market. Pretty much these deals besides maybe T-Mobile's pry on the ignorant to shell out more money.

    Was this whole concept from T-Mobile, and every other carrier followed? If so, poor T-Mobile.......

    I'd like to know do you get a option to pay off and keep your device and then jump into a new device and begin the payments?
