A Reuters report claims Verizon Wireless will start charging customers an additional US$30 when they upgrade their phone. This fee will apply to existing customers who buy new hardware with a two-year customer agreement. Verizon says it’s levying this additional charge in order to “provide customers with the level of service and support they have come to expect.” Verizon will be joining Sprint and AT&T, which also charge customers an additional fee when they upgrade.
