I had two lines of service with them that totaled $105 per month. One of them had an ETF of $270 and the other an ETF of $310 for a total of $580. I added two lines to take advantage of the BOGO. My total cost for 2 new HTC Ones was $216 including tax plus I got an LG Gpad 8.3 LTE for $54 including tax for a total of $270. My monthly service charges are $105 (same as my first 2 lines). I sold one of my new HTC Ones for $590 on swappa and cancelled the first 2 lines and paying the ETFs with the money I got from that sale. In my next billing cycle I'll be getting a $200 bill credit for having opened up 2 new lines so that credit offsets my initial cost of the 2 new Ones. Additionally when I installed the Isis app I got $40 deposited into that account by Verizon which practically covers the cost of my new tablet.

In short I got a new HTC One and a new LG Gpad 8.3 LTE for a total of $25. Only difference is I have new phone numbers but I don't really care because I use Google Voice anyway.

Moral of the story is that Edge was not a good option for me but there is so many variables it may be for some.

Anyone on the edge program, do you have an employer discount parallel to the credit? I'm wondering if this will be possible.

I'm currently getting 22% employee discount on the data plan only. So for the 6gb share ($80) I get about $19 off. I'm just wondering if they will do the $25 credit with the discount...

There is no more Early Termination Fee if you use Edge. It's the balance on the Edge Installment Agreements that is left at the time of cancelling the line, or removing the device from the account.

I just migrated to Edge to on the m8 too. Like the others have stated with the 10GB shared data plan it actually is $0.01 cheaper a month for my line.

I wonder if we are allowed to unlock our bootloaders (S-OFF) under edge?

Why wouldn't employee discount apply with the Edge program? It is completely separate. On my account, I have a family share plan with 25% off on 10 GB of data so that goes down from $100 to $75. One of the 3 phones is on the Edge plan and will get the $25 off for that phone ($40-25 + $24.99 for the cost of phone monthly).

Of course you aren't officially allowed, but there is no reason not to. With S-Off you can easily remove any tampering notifications and put it back to S-On before turning it in.
