When T-Mobile introduced its Just Upgrade My Phone (JUMP) program last year, it allowed subscribers to trade-in their phone and purchase a new one every six months. Today, T-Mobile announced that someone will soon be able to upgrade whenever they want - 6 months or 6 minutes - with the new JUMP guidelines.
Word of the changes was first leaked by TmoNews yesterday and T-Mobile has issued an official press release confirming the details. In addition to increasing the frequency of phone upgrades, the carrier is also extending the same frequent update option to tablets. Here's how how T-Mobile explains it:
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.
The new JUMP terms will go live on Sunday, February 23. Existing JUMP subscribers continue to operate under the original terms until they have the chance to upgrade at their 6 month period.via: TmoNews
