Verizon’s new plan will allow new and existing customers to skip the lengthy service contracts.

Some people just hate being locked into a cell phone plan. No matter—Verizon Wireless has announced its new month-to-month option.

Of course, don’t expect any phone deals. Those freewheeling individuals will have to purchase their handhelds at the full-retail price. If you have an existing CDMA unit, that would work as well. That kind of stinks, but if you decide that you don’t like the service, you can walk away without having to fork over your rent money. There are no fees, and no (or minimal) hard feelings.

Verizon’s Month-to-Month agreement is available now on all Nationwide Voice and Data plans, for new customers. Existing Verizon customers can make the switch, after their current plan is completed.

As someone that has paid the exit fees to drop service, it sounds like a nice alternative. Of course, I also like a nice cheap phone every now and then. Which is more important to you?
