It all starts with a new phone on the best network. For a limited time starting July 27, get the Google Pixel for $5 per month on device payment when you trade in an eligible phone.*

Looking for an LG G6 or Samsung Galaxy S8? Also starting on July 27, for a limited time get up to $300 back with select trade in when switching to Verizon or adding a line on device payment**. Verizon has the right tech for everyone heading back to school.
