Don't slap me too hard I'm coming form the S4.


I assume you found this out already but TMOBILE has not locked their bootloader which it seems you think may have happened. It is totally unlocked - no exploit has ever been needed on any of the TMOBILE roms for this phone and I don't think you have anything to worry about. if you already picked up your S5 then you know this - if you waited - come on in = the waters just fine.

tmobile doesn't even care about knox. If you have handset protection they are happy knox is just tripped .. They would rather have a knox tripped phone to send out than one that has a cracked screen or worse ...Just bought my S5 today and knox is tripped already ...

Please make your own decision regarding Jump program and knox, you may be rejected and the guys that tell you otherwise will not pay for your phone if X screws up. (x==(camera||speaker||microphone||headphonejack||e lse)).

I personally have chosen to use towel root(which doesn't trip knox!!!) on NE6, then use Odin Mobile to update to NF6 to keep root.

Sorry I meant I just bought the s5 today and I tripped Knox already cause im not concerned with tripping it . Especially if you have handset protection. It covers anything . Tripping knox just voids manufacturers warranty .All in all tmobile will work with you . They want you to keep paying them . My buddy brought his S4 in there a week ago and his knox was tripped and he partially bricked it and wifi and data wouldn't turn on. Not only did they give him a new phone but he got a GS5 and they credited all the previous made payments on Gs4 to the new Phone . Which I was surprised about . The S5 I bought today was brand new ...

T-mobile can deny jump upgrade if you trip knox flag, but I bet they won't..

Here's why..the new jump rule requires you to have paid at least half of the price of the original phone.

The phone that you trade in is gonna be in good working condition and probably not very old. A phone like this is usually gonna be worth more than 1/2 the original full price.

T-mobile jump is a rip off in my opinion

I had jump on my S4. I planned on using it to upgrade to S5 when it was released.

T-mobile changed the jump policy, and now jump wasn't worth using.



Here's how I jump....

When GS5 was first released i got it right away from t-mobile by adding another financed equipment plan.

I then payed off the remaining balance on the S4 ($300), unlocked it, and sold on it Ebay($400).

I got a brand new just released GS5, $100, and my T-mobile monthly bill stays the same.

**Actually it's $2 dollars less after removing jump. ($8 for handset protect without jump)**
