Forget waiting to upgrade your phone (or tablet), T-Mobile says do it today
T-Mobile, in yet another mind-boggling awesome deal, has decided customers don’t need to wait to upgrade their devices. Forget that waiting period and twice a year stuff; if you want a new smartphone or tablet, you got it.
The carrier has confirmed with FierceWireless that it will reconfigure its “JUMP!” upgrade program effective February 23. No longer tied to handsets, the program will also include tablets. Under the old program customers were expected to wait six months or were limited to twice per year.
Whenever you’re ready to upgrade, trade in your device and T-Mobile will pay your remaining device payments up to 50% of the device cost. There is no more waiting period or limit to the number of times you can upgrade per year. – T-Mobile
What’s the fine print? Customers will need to have paid down 50 percent (or more) of the device cost before it’s eligible to trade in. T-Mobile will take your old product back and pay off the difference; you select the new one.
Reportedly, customers under the current JUMP! program will stay put until the next upgrade.
