Get Your iPhone 5 First

Any one who has heard anything about technology lately will know that the iPhone 5 was just officially released.    Usually, after about a week following the Apple announcement, you will finally have the opportunity to place your pre-order for the new device. Express Verizon is happy to grant you the golden ticket. Starting tomorrow, 200,000 devices country-wide will be released for pre-order. Skip the waits and long lines that are expected at the corporate locations and put your name on the newest, hottest new iPhone first!

The new device is lighter and has a larger screen. It also now runs on 4G internet and boasts iOS 6. The phone will be able to hold up to the higher demands with a stronger processor and longer battery life.

Express Verizon will be opening early at 7:30 am to allow for maximum time to place orders before they are all claimed. Call any of our locations for more information. See you there!

Flipswap Your Phone

There are two kinds of cell phone shoppers. Yup, just two. Which kind are you?

The first group is the ones who come in to get a new phone only when theirs is broken or no longer works properly. Often they choose something similar to what they had before or take a leap to a more advanced device. They become content with the type of phone that they have and don’t really want anything different. They may feel intimidated by new technology because they don’t understand this fast changing market and all of the techy terms thrown around.

The second group is the people who can hardly wait until their next upgrade. They have to have the newest device as soon as it hits the shelves. This group embraces all the new things they can do with more advanced equipment and finds value in all of the features and benefits.

However, what is the biggest issue for both these groups?  What do you do with the old equipment? You might have spent a good amount of money on your previous device but, now you have to worry about trying to sell it, giving it to a friend or sticking it in an old drawer to collect dust.

Express Verizon now has the solution for all of our shoppers looking to get a great deal and prevent all of the outdated, possibly expensive equipment from just taking up space in their homes. With our new flipswap program, we will professionally estimate the trade in value of your phone and offer you that amount in store credit towards the purchase of your new device. No more wasted phone clutter.

People from the first group can rest assured they get the most for their money. If there is still some value in their current phone, they can roll it over toward their upgrade. This way they know that they got everything from the phones they pay for.

For the group that wants to keep up with the technology trends, you no longer have to worry about all of the advanced devices you have bought previously. Just trade ’em in for the next newest device! Bring in your phone today to find out what new device you can get.

Happy shopping and happy flipswapping!

New Upgrade Policy

So there have been plenty of rumors circulating lately regarding the changes to Verizon Wireless’s upgrade policy. To clear them up I would like to explain what will now be in effect for the Verizon customers.

Every Verizon customer will still have an upgrade 20 months into their contract. You do not have to wait until your contract is fully expired to get a new device.

Previously, primary lines on Family Plans and/or lines billing out at over $59.99 would receive annual upgrades after the first year of their contract. These will no longer be available. The only upgrade option will be at the 20 month point.

These same lines also had the option of waiting until the 20 months into their contract. If they upgraded after that time, they would receive  a New Every Two credit toward their device. The NE2 amounts were either $30 or $50. These credits will no longer be available.

The plan took effect on January 16th. If you had upgraded before this date you will still have your annual upgrade or NE2 available to you. If you had these items available to use on your account and you hadn’t taken advantage of them, please check with one of the stores as to how long you have to use the upgrades, becuase their is a expiration on the offers.

However, our phones are always offered at great pricing and we can try to make a great deal with you for a new device when you are upgrading. Every line on the account will still receive an upgrade, it may just be at a different time than previously used.

If you have any other questions or concerns regarding this policy change, please stop into one of our locations in Enfield, Ellington, Vernon or Stafford Connecticut.
