INFORMATION REGARDING VERIZON:
Verizon has evaluated their current contracts will all associations and will be implementing changes nationwide. Verizon has assured us that all public safety associations will be held to the same contract agreement. Despite of our greatest efforts, the contract with Verizon will undergo a transformation.
We do not have solid dates for the changes, however to grandfather the current plans and prices, any upgrade or plan changes will need to take place prior to October 30th.
What we know for sure:
We will maintain a 22% discount (on lines $35.99+)
We will keep our 25% discount in corporate Verizon locations when purchasing accessories
Waived activation and restocking fees will continue
Early Termination Fees will not be charged on EXISTING lines of service prior to the date of the new contract.
2 year contract upon upgrade of device
All plans are grandfathered in UNTIL you upgrade THEN plan changes may be required based upon your willingness to pay for device costs etc.
Devices will take 2-3 business days to be delivered to the user.
Lines of services added to your account (brand new and those coming from consumer accounts) will be required to be on the new plans and will have early termination fees if you can within a contract period.
What should you do?
If you are eligible for an upgrade-DO SO NOW!
Make sure you are happy with the phone plan you are on now and if you want to make change do it prior to the new contract date.
If you are considering the option of a Hotspot on your device-DO IT NOW, after the changes this will be considered a “plan change” and you will be forced to change your entire plan.
