I remember when cell phones first went from that mammoth device to a flip phone. My brother, who is the one in the family to get the latest and coolest gadgets got one. We were vising for Thanksgiving and we could not get over how it could fit in the palm of our hands. I recall thinking we looked much like the cave people must have looked when the wheel was first invented! It is amazing how the cell phone has developed into the smart phone. What is almost as mind blowing is how quickly new phones are being introduced into the marketplace. It seems there is a new phone every other day that we want to try. Sadly, most cell phone companies only allow you to upgrade to a new phone every 1-2 years. But wait! with the new Verizon Edge program from Verizon Wireless, getting a new smartphone when you want is a breeze!

What is Verizon Edge you ask? Well it is the coolest thing to hit technology since the cell phone! With the Verizon Edge program, you get to choose from a huge number of phones from Verizon wireless anytime you want! You can take 24 months to pay for your phone instead of shelling out all that cash up front.
