If they cannot resolve the problem while you’re on the line, and the problem is caused by a manufacturing defect within the first year you own the device, they’ll send you a Certified Like-New Replacement (either a like unit or one of comparable quality) right to your door at no cost to you. If you call them after the return and exchange period, the device you receive may be reconditioned equipment. Certified Like-New Replacements will carry the remaining warranty period from the original device, or 90 days, whichever is greater. Devices subject to neglect, misuse, liquid damage, unreasonable wear and tear and the like, are not eligible for any return or exchange program. This program does not cover devices on Prepaid Accounts, or lost or stolen devices.

Year in and year out, Verizon Wireless continues to win awards for its reliable service and powerful performance.

Upgrade Policy

(Policy Change as of 04/18/2019)
Verizon Wireless is implementing a $40 Upgrade/Activation Fee. The Upgrade/Activation Fee is charged when upgrading or activating a new device at a discounted rate. This applies to 2-year contracts and device payments. The Upgrade Fee also applies to Business Customers with 1-10 lines (as of 01/22/2020). There is a one-time charge to cover increasing costs associated with upgrading to new equipment. Devices are more sophisticated than ever before, and we provide many services which include Wireless Workshops, online educational tools, and consultations with experts who provide advice and guidance on devices. Additional services we provide, for a low setup fee of $25, are backing up your contacts, email and voicemail setup, demos, as well as ensuring any apps, music, pictures, and videos remain accessible from your new handset. While the upgrade fee is not unique to Verizon, our fee is over 15% lower than our two largest competitors, and most devices can be traded in with our “green friendly” trade-in program, which is another way you may save on your upgrade and potentially offset the fee completely. Ask your sales representative for details. The Upgrade Fee does not apply to Business Customers with 11 or more lines, Prepay customers, Insurance replacements, or Upgrades that do not extend the contract.
If the device is returned within 3 days, the Upgrade Fee is automatically credited off the monthly statement, or refunded, depending on how the fee was originally charged.
