Yeah Jump 2 started on February 22/23rd from what my local store told me.

I use Jump 2, but usually put $250-$270 down, so my monthly payment is $15-$16. Then I'll pay the device off in the future ($360-$400), and sell the phone on Swappa for $460-$500.

Honestly Jump is expensive because of the phone taxes. Buying the M8 used would've cost me like $500, that is a $190 or so savings when I count tax.

I wish I could have joined before they got rid of the first JUMP. Every 6 months means you only paid anywhere from $150-$177 on the 6 months you had it (plus the initial taxes on the phone).

Now on JUMP2 you have to wait until HALF of the phone is paid off which is cool for the economical handsets they offer, but when you're talking about a Note 3 or GS5 or HTC M8, essentially anything that retails for over $600, going halfsies will take you a year.

They must have realized they were losing money that way and made the switch.



This is assuming you have good credit and didn't require a down payment when you originally got your phone.
Nokia 6061-> Samsung A737 -> iPhone 3G -> iPhone 4 -> Motorola Atrix-> Samsung Skyrocket -> iPhone 4s -> Nokia Lumia 900 -> HTC One X -> Samsung Galaxy SIII->iPhone 5-> Samsung Galaxy Note 2 -> Nokia Lumia 920 -> HTC One->iPhone 5s->Nexus Cinco-> soon i'll be in the 5th galaxy

What you are saying, is that I can take my Flex in, today, tell them to move me to "Jump 2", and trade it in for an M8, and I dont have to pay off anything on the Flex, and I can "start fresh" with an M8, with no money down? (I have great Credit)

Thanks
I would highly recommend keeping the old jump as its a much, much better deal than the new one. The new one is kind of a ripoff where T-Mobile has realized that they are losing quite a bit of money on the original jump. Also, once you got to the new jump you will never be able to revert to the old one. Yes it suck that you have to wait 6 months but its a much better deal.

I wish i had switched before they introduced the new jump. I've looked high and low for ways to get the old jump to no avail.
