However, keep in mind that you’re still locked to the Verizon network, which is likely a deal-breaker for a lot of people regardless of the price of the phone. If you buy from Verizon, you’ll pay $41.66 each month for 24 months, unless you choose to pay outright.

Verizon also has some deals to entice customers to upgrade or switch. There are the usual trade-in discounts, the amount of which will vary depending on the device you’re trading in and whether or not you are a current customer. If you are not on Verizon and want to switch, you can get a $150 Verizon e-gift card if you switch to one of the carrier’s unlimited plans. You’ll also get a Verizon Stream TV, an Amazon Echo Dot, and a smart plug.

The vanilla Motorola Edge with 6GB of RAM and 256GB storage will be available for $699.99 in the summer. It was previously said to be a Verizon exclusive, but now Motorola will release unlocked variants of the phone

In India, the Motorola Edge Plus is priced at Rs 74,999 (~$990) for the single 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant. You can now pre-order the flagship on Flipkart, while sales will start on May 26. Launch offers in the country include an instant Rs 7,500 (~$99) discount if purchased using ICICI Bank credit cards on Flipkart. Offline buyers will get the same amount as cashback if purchases are done using ICICI Bank credit cards.
