Cellphones are one of the most quickly evolving forms of technology out there. More often than not, a new cellphone design will catch your attention before your current contract is up. Once your contract is up, most companies offer pricing discounts when you upgrade your equipment. For this reason it's good to wait until your contract is expired before upgrading your phone. With Verizon Wireless, there are a couple of ways that you can check if your two-year contract is up.
Visit the Verizon Wireless (verizonwireless.com) website. Log in to your online account. If you don't have an account, click the "Register" button to set up an online profile.
Click on the image of your current cellphone, shown in your account page after you log in.
Examine the upgrade status of your phone. Verizon Wireless will list a specific date after which you can receive a loyalty discount on new equipment. This is the date that your two-year contract will be up.
Call Verizon Wireless and speak with a representative if you prefer not to use the online method. An operator will assist you in retrieving this information. You can also dial "*611" directly from your Verizon Wireless phone to reach customer service.
