Anyone using jump to upgrade to the m8? I'm relatively new on using jump, so I'd like to know what I would have to do? And do I have to make a new down payment once I trade in my old phone? (iPhone 5s)

You can pretty much can get all the answers on T Mobile's website. I'll be honest with you jump is pretty lame now considering you can just sell your iPhone 5s and get much more money in return towards the M8

Under the new terms of Jump, if your iPhone isn't completely paid off you'll have to pay at least 50% of what you still owe when you Jump. It doesn't look like the M8 will have a down payment when it debuts April 11, but you'll probably have to pay the tax on the phone's full price.

The "Jump" privilege adds another $10 to your bill. So I'll just make installments on the M8 and sell my old phone myself. I'll get way more for it that way.

Don't have an answer to the OP's question, but I heard people who got onto Jump before T-mobile changed it (in Feb wasn't it?) will remain grandfathered on the old plan until they opt to switch to new version. So the older plan was somewhat better deal because one didn't had to pay half-cost of the phone before switching.

Yes, Jump adds $10 to your bill...but that $10 includes the $7.99 insurance that covers accidental damage.

That is correct! I have confirmed this with T-Mobile directly.

This is correct. Anyone who got on Jump after Feb 23rd I believe (could be the 25th, but def after the 21st cause thats when i switched), stays on the original plan and can upgrade every 6 months without having to pay off half their phone first.

Okay so you still have to make a new down payment (if any)?

As much as people refuse to see it, once you jump you agree to the new terms of jump.

No you are gradnfathered into the old jump. Already jumped and I am still on the old jump.

Also it's not upgrade every 6 months. it's twice a year. You can jump after the first 6 months then after that it's anytime. So it won't reset until after your first jump has expired(1 year).

So if you jumped January 1, 2014 then jumped Febuary 22 you used your two jumps and can't jump again until January 1, 2015.
