Verizon will be ending one-year contracts as an option come April 17th, but if you are attempting to sign up for one online the sun has already set. When attempting to purchase a handset online the only plans you will find pricing for are a two-year contract and month-to-month. Gone is the one-year option from the drop-down menu.
Verizon customer support confirms that the one-year option was phased out as of April 12th. Today is the 13th. The cutoff date of April 17th is still four days away. If you are looking to pick up one of Verizon’s current Android smartphones (or any other phone from Big Red for that matter) on a shorter-term contract, best hurry down to your local retail shop and see if they can draft up a one-year deal, because you won’t be finding it online.
