Secure play store? I haven't even heard of that. What good does that do? If anything, it'll only slow download rates since it'd be encrypted (in theory). But I guess it makes sense why it has a download booster now

Sorry I misspoke. It will run most app in playstore but Samsung working on the marketplace as well.

I don't think I'll be able to sell my note 3 for a long time, it's the best phone I've ever used since 2009 and I gave the g1 a try (never cared for cell phones til than). But even if I did sell it.. I know I could get back more cash from a 3rd party than I could from t mobile.

You are correct, it never is your phone. Why should it be? You're not paying $650-$1000 USD like every other country for the newest superphone on the market on launch day. You're paying $130-ish over a 6 month period while you wait for the newest latest greatest. As someone who previously paid full retail on launch day for the last handful of Galaxy devices, then to sell them 4-8 months later, let me tell you... Jump 1.0 is a FANTASTIC deal! If I don't have to OWN my device, but simply borrow it from T-mobile that's a small price to pay really.

I love the fact that I can brick it with no worries

Agreed! Plus, something people are failing to realize, there are no contracts. So, the consumer always has the upper hand. And you can own the phone, it's not a borrow. You simply have to pay the whole EPI then it's yours. But, me and countless others, would rather start over with a new phone twice a year. JUMP is really the best program I've seen on mobile companies

My credit was good enough that I coudl have got 10 Note 3 devices with zero down. My wife had to pay 199 when she got her S4. He credit wasn't good enough. The zero down is based on credit score though its a soft credit, not hard credit check if I recall. And yes, I paid the taxes.
