Verizon subscribers: check to see if you have an early upgrade

Carriers are fiercely competing for new iPhone customers and the lucrative two-year contracts that come with them. The latest carrier deal comes from Verizon, which confirmed to Gigaom that all existing postpaid customers who would be eligible for an upgrade before November 15th can now take advantage of their upgrade starting today. That means that some customers will be able to purchase a $200 iPhone 6 with a two-year contract after 22 months, instead of the customary 24. This promotion doesn’t just work with the iPhone either — it works with Android devices as well, such as the LG G3 or the Samsung Galaxy S5.
