StraplineThis week's best options for iPhones, Galaxy S23, Pixel and more
Alongside Verizon deals for devices, you'll also find great options for those simply looking to port their number over to the carrier. Got your own device? The good news is you can get up to $500 in value for your new account with the added bonus of skipping the obligatory credit check. As of mid-2023, Verizon has also switched up its array of excellent unlimited data plans to offer a more flexible buy-what-you-want setup, which makes it one of the top carriers for choice and value right now.
Steering back to Verizon deals on phones for a second, you'll find distinct sections for both iPhones and Android devices just down below. Generally speaking, promotions across all devices are relatively similar with a focus on trade-in rebates in particular as the best way to shave those device costs down to size. That said, if you're not looking to trade there are some superb deals right now that don't require you to hand over an old device - such as on the iPhone 14 Plus and Google Pixel 7a.
While you're here, if you're interested in comparing these promotions to what other carriers are offering, head on over to our main best cell phone deals. If you're still unsure about whether Verizon is the carrier for you or need a little more advice regarding phones, head on over to our best Verizon plans and the best Verizon phones pages respectively.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Verizon
On the surface, Verizon's opening iPhone 15 deals don't offer a huge departure from the usual trade-in rebates at the carrier. However, Verizon has relaxed its trade-in eligibility criteria to be more inclusive, which means you can trade in any iPhone in any condition and get up to $1,000 off a Pro model. This particular promotion is aimed at switchers since it's a "new line" deal but existing customers can still get up to $830 off a device here, which is really competitive.
Apple iPhone 15: up to $830 off with a trade-in at Verizon
If you're more interested in the standard iPhone 15, Verizon's opening deals offer a really decent trade-in rebate of up to $830 off, which is enough to cover the entire cost of the device. If you're a new customer, then we'd recommend the deal on the Pro model above since it's got slightly better terms but upgraders will find a lot of value with this particular listing.
Apple iPhone 14: free with an unlimited data plan, plus $280 off an iPad and Apple Watch
While it's no longer the latest device in the range, Verizon's still offering it's best-ever deal on the excellent iPhone 14. Right now, no trade-ins are needed to get this device for free on an unlimited data plan - only a new line. While this is potentially still an annoying restriction for some, waiving the pesky trade-in criteria makes this device a lot more approachable now. Adding to the value further this week is the option to bundle in an Apple Watch for $5 per month and an additional $280 saving on an iPad - although you will pay for those device lines separately.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in (new line or upgrade)
Verizon's current deal on the new Galaxy Z flagships is one of the best you'll find anywhere right now if you're lining up a trade-in specifically. The massive rebate of up to $1,000 isn't just a match for the best we've ever seen from a carrier, but it applies to both new lines and upgrades. If you're thinking about jumping on the foldable bandwagon this is a fantastic option. See this same deal on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 here.
Samsung Galaxy S23: free with an unlimited data plan
This week's Verizon deals are also offering one of the best deals we've ever seen on the standard Samsung Galaxy S23. Like with the iPhone 14, you no longer need to trade in to get this flagship device for free - just a new line on an unlimited data plan, which is particularly handy if your current device isn't highly valued. Those looking to trade in will want to check out this week's deal on the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra, both of which are available with a trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 off.
Google Pixel 7: free with unlimited plan
Another superb flagship that's currently available for free alongside a new line on an unlimited data plan at Verizon this week is the Google Pixel 7. Although some may prefer to go for the more expensive Galaxy S23, we'd still recommend the Pixel 7 as a competitive option thanks to its superb camera features. Note, that the Pixel 7 Pro is also available for free at Verizon this week, although only with an eligible trade-in.

Switch: get $540 when you bring your own device

Alternatively, those who are looking to pick up a device at Verizon can get a $200 gift card if they port their number over from another carrier. According to T&Cs, this one is eligible with devices over $699.99 in value and needs an Unlimited Plus plan. It does, however, stack with the usual trade-ins and freebies that you get otherwise with Verizon's deals on phones.
Plan deal: students save up to $25/mo with unlimited plans
Verizon offers a hefty discount for actively enrolled students, with a saving of up to $25 per month on the Welcome Unlimited plan.
