Verizon wireless phone updating

announced Thursday that you can have a new i Phone every year for just a buck a month, plus the cost of monthly service.Though Verizon and AT&T aren't racing to the bottom on price, both are offering up to $300 ($400 on Verizon) for switching to their service and trading in an old smartphone.The update to Android 8.0 Oreo brings with it new features like picture-in-picture, autofill, and notification dots.

You can also check for it manually by going into your Settings app.

If you're not the kind of person who needs to upgrade every year -- or even every two years, stretching the lifespan of your smartphone makes the most financial sense.
