Free phones are no longer given to Verizon customers who renew their accounts, as of 2014. To find out what purchase options account holders are eligible for with a contract renewal, they can contact a Verizon store or access the company's website.
The New Every Two program was discontinued by the company in 2011, with existing contracts honored until 2014. Any contract holders with expiration dates after that time have to purchase any new phones or devices desired. This can be done by outright purchase or by qualifying for the Verizon Edge program that allows a user to finance equipment for the length of the contract.
