T-Mobile announces its "Boldest Moves Yet": Jump, LTE, Nokia Lumia 925, Sony Xperia Z and more
0. phoneArena 10 Jul 2013, 14:10 posted on
We've been patiently waiting for the T-Mobile press conference to begin, and just minutes before CEO John Legere took the stage, we got word from T-Mobile exactly what the announcements will be. We have heard about T-Mobile's new "Jump" program for upgrading your phone, the LTE expansion, and we expected the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 925, and Sony Xperia Z, but the company is also announcing a new family plan with no credit check...

Why would you want to downgrade to T-Mobile?

How is it a downgrade? Other than coverage in some areas, and AT&T having some faster speeds in some areas, there isn't really any sacrifice. Speaking as someone who switched from AT&T to T-Mobile in 2005, and whom had an AT&T employee account for a few years until early this year.

Because it isn't a downgrade.
"I just downgraded to unlimited data."
-No one ever.

I pay 75$ a month for 200 mb of data and Im a college student with limited means, T-mobile is half that but I dont want to sacrifice good coverage and I also want a decent phone selection but I guess im asking to much.

Thats the cheapest plan on either verizon or atnt over here in texas and thats with the grandfathered in plan of 200mb lol a new contract will run you over 80$

The announcement of tomorrow will be so much bigger, can't hardly wait, but this is nice for US customers.

Tmobile kicking some a.s.s with their new phones.

2 upgrades a year? Boy, they are truly gambling more customers will pay that extra fee a month then actually use it. Although you are still paying off over time, so I guess they really are not out anything here. And the appeal to me is fun.
T-Mobile: Not stupid. This is a great business model.

T-Mobile apparently hates WI because when I looked at the LTE list, Wisconsin wasn't even on there.

Chicago is lit up with LTE pretty much everywhere. And this new Jump service sounds pretty good to me. Don't see myself switching to another carrier anytime soon.

damn...I may very well end up going to T-Mobile.

If this isn't a bait-and-switch gambit (as in bait the consumers to move to T-Mo, followed by the switch of dropping the 2 upgrades per year after the customer has signed up with T-Mo), it could be a compelling option for the areas where T-Mo has good coverage. I might have to give T-Mo another look as well.

Wow... don't know what to do. SIM card with AT&T, SIM card with T-Mo, or the new trade-in plan with T-Mo?
So many choices and my contract ends in December!

"The Nokia Lumia 925 will be the T-Mobile variant of the Lumia 920 packed with Windows Phone 8..." um no? the Lumia 925 is a completely remasterized, crafted piece of art with PureView sensor trimmed down, with a 6 angle lens camera, how is this just a variant of the lumia 920?
19. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7757; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Because it's a successor to the Lumia 920.

Successor = something newer, sometimes perfected, variant = something alike with hardly no differences

I love T-mobile just wish there service was better in Louisiana! I get tired of phones really fast so jump would be awesome. I already pay $9.99 / month for AT&T "mobile protection pack" and I definately only get an upgrade once every 24 months :-( . Boo 4 big blue!

For my area we only get 2g coverage... As usual there is no way I would switch from LTE to 2g. If tmob would spend some of there money on better coverage they would have a new sale with me.
