Wonder if the phones you give back they will sell as refurbs. Cause if not thats gonna be a huge loss.

It sounds exactly how it's described: Basically, they are removing the 6 month requirement, as long as the device is at least 50% paid off.

I always wondered why all the carriers didn't do this. If you have paid off 50% of the phone, the phone obviously has more value to the carrier. And they can pay you whatever they want for a used phone.

Mmm that's odd I paid $360, more that 50%, for the HTC One up front 5 months ago and I'm paying equipment plans of 12.50 per month. Doesn't that mean I could of used jump plan since the beginning being that I paid more than 50% of the device lol.

I like this option - BUT!!!! - it does cost more for the consumer - it does, however, give them a little more wiggle room for changing phones. If you buy a Note 3 and pay half of it - which is around 355.00 - and then you change it for a new phone - you just lost 355 dollars. Where as the old way, you paid 199-299 for a top of the line phone, such as the Note 3, and then you have to wait 18-21 months before you could upgrade. Money vs. Versatility.

I'd rather sell my phone and buy a new one outright for a few hundred more than loose money trading in a phone I already paid half of the retail price for..

Seriously who's going to be jumping from phone to phone like that?
