Default Awesome news for T-Mobile!

A little bird told me starting on the 28th JUMP will no longer have a 6 month (180 day) waiting period to upgrade! You will also be able to upgrade an UN-Limited number of times per year!


Also, the international calling plan will change for the better, allowing better rates for calling to cell phones. I'll update this when I learn more.

The catch is you have to have paid 50% of your eip balance. It's actually worse than every 6 months. People already signed up for jump are granfathered in unless they stop and restart JUMP.

You are almost right, T-Mobile will only pay off half of the EIP balance. So you are right, but just a little off.

I would say the first part about the Jump program is true but not the 2nd. It would be a bad business model and money loser for T-Mobile to allow any and everyone to upgrade unlimited times a year. The only way I could see this happen is if they reward their customers who have been here through all the BS like me, Ive been with T-Mobile since 2003, but I doubt it.

Well you can keep your grandfathered features, but customers always have unrealistic expectations. Not saying that yours are. And I would read post #6 in this thread, it kinda helps explain how the changes work. I honestly prefer the original JUMP plan.

The terms have not been finalized as per TMOBILE. What was posted/leaked was a rough draft. Noting is set in stone yet

Appears that the initial jump program might be better.

This is per management at T-Mobile. This will be happening, you will be able to keep your old JUMP plan if you wish, however.
