Do Switch to T-Mobile If You Like to Upgrade Your Phone

Do Switch to T-Mobile If You Like to Upgrade Your Phone

You can upgrade smartphones three times a year on T-Mobile, giving you the opportunity to switch to any iPhone or Galaxy smartphone that launches after you switch.

You only pay a monthly leasing charge with Jump On-Demand. T-Mobile employees will check your current phone for hardware defects and treat the device as a trade in. Only high-end phones, like the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8, are eligible for Jump On-Demand upgrades. There are no upgrade fees. You can cancel the lease at any time by turning your phone in or buying out the lease.

AT&T, Verizon and Sprint offer similar upgrade plans. AT&T Next Year lets subscribers upgrade smartphones once they’ve paid off 50% of their current device’s value. Sprint’s iPhone and Galaxy promotions let customers upgrade their smartphone after 12 months of lease payments. Anyone that has paid 50% of their phone's retail price qualifies for Verizon's Annual Upgrade Program. The program only lets customers upgrade to the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Each of these requires customers to trade in their old phone. 

T-Mobile Jump On-Demand does have some major downsides. Customers that cancel their Jump On-Demand lease are left without a phone and the money they've spent on lease payments when they cancel early. Also, Jump On-Demand doesn't come with accidental protection. T-Mobile charges subscribers for fixing broken screens and body damage before each Jump On-Demand upgrade.

    T-Mobile in Connecticut works amazing. I was with AT&T but it has gotten really ridiculous with its pricing. T-Mobile is pretty awesome and definitely has changed a lot since the last time I had them back in the early 2000’s. I travel a lot to Canada and this is a deal breaker for me with T-Mobile its free and I can be in any plan not like att where you have to be on the unlimited plan. Yes T-mobile service is spotty up in Vermont but it doesn’t matter because ATT and T-Mobile have an agreement in those areas :)
