Verizon Wireless To Implement A $30 'Upgrade Fee' Beginning On April 22

In order to further take advantage of its customers "continue to provide customers with the level of service and support they have come to expect," Verizon will be adding a $30 "upgrade fee" to all new devices purchased with a two-year agreement after April 22, 2012.

Big Red is quick to remind users that other carriers also charge a similar fee, but I'd like to remind it that the lack of a ridiculous upgrade fee is one of the reasons that many customers choose Verizon as their mobile provider.

Update: Looks like Motorola cancelled the soak test due to "deployment issues." Word has it that the update could still happen sometime next week.

Thanks, DW!

What Is Isis, And Why Should You Care It's Now Partnered With A Bunch Of Payment Companies? Because It's Out To Kill Google Wallet

Mobile payment providers. Yeah, I'm already getting a little sleepy thinking about them, too.
