Verizon Slashing return period!

| January 7, 2011 | 3 Replies

Wow Verizon… looks like you have another big change-up your sleeves that might not sit well with customers. Earlier this week amongst the CES and 4G craziness coming from the Big Red, a revamped upgrade policy was shown and now they are going after the return period as well! Verizon is rumored to be cutting the return period from the now current 30 day window to just 14 days! This change is scheduled to happen the same day as the new Upgrade policy!

Anyone else surprised Verizon is changing their policies again this week? Anyone else think this might have to do with the announcement of the Verizon iPhone as I do? Drop us a comment below and let us know

It appears as though Verizon has a lot more changes then we would have ever predicted coming down the pipeline to start out 2011. First the flood of new LTE devices at CES, then the unknown press conference scheduled for next week, then they changed the upgrade policy for two-year contracts, and now they plan to change their return policy to 14 days instead of 30 days. This change is slated to happen on the 16th of this month and no direct communication has been given as to why the change. Be sure to stay tuned for any further information we receive, and hopefully some official communication from Verizon to better understand the changes.

During the day I work in graphic design and also do photography. By night I try to play with programming and code of all different types. I love the opportunity to write for the site and hope to see it grow as time goes on.

    Is it even legal not to provide a 30 return policy?

    I am not a lawyer, so I don’t know.

      legally speaking there doesn’t have to be a return policy at all. It is unfortunate that VZW is making all these changes, but 2 weeks is more than enough time to know of the device you’re using is the one you want or not.

    i looked into this and the Verizon professional I spoke with said that they will make special exceptions for this. I just threatened I was going to AT & T. lol
