Get a new phone every 30-days with T-Mobile's revised JUMP! On Demand

Get a new phone every 30-days with T-Mobile's revised JUMP! On Demand
Remember those days when you would dream about getting a new smartphone every 24-months or so? Now, with new features added so quickly, buying the latest handset every two-years just doesn't cut it. In fact, T-Mobile thinks that you should have the option to update to a brand new model every 30-days with its revised JUMP! On Demand plan; the original version of JUMP! on Demand launched in June 2015, and allowed T-Mobile customers to switch phones no more than three times each year.

Here is how the latest incantation of the plan works. T-Mobile subscribers enter into an 18-month lease for a hot new handset. Once every 30-days, the subscriber has the option to upgrade to a different model or memory size at a T-Mobile retail location. After each monthly period, the customer also has the option of purchasing the leased handset, or cancelling the lease.

Since we are dealing with a lease, you need to make sure to keep your phone in working condition and looking as lovely as ever. Excess wear is the leaser's devil. And each month, as long as you keep up your end of the bargain, a brand new flagship model awaits you. The amount of the monthly payments will be determined by the phone being leased, and the Simple Choice data plan selected. Available phones for the plan currently include the latest and greatest models including Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the LG G5. There is some speculation that the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, LG G6 and the Motorola Moto Z2 Force are also part of the deal.

Keep in mind that Device Protection is not included with JUMP! On Demand, so that is important to consider. Even those paying off a device using an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) can be eligible for JUMP! On Demand depending on how much of a balance is left on their handset after a possible trade-in credit.

If interested, call 1-800-866-2453. Existing T-Mobile subscribers can dial 611 from their T-Mobile branded handset for more information.

Why does it say simple choice data plan? I thought t-mobile was only promoting the one plan. This sounds like an outdated ad as it also lists all the flagships from last year.

Well this is good news for android users. But I'm on the old jump on demand 3 times a year and don't need it with using an iPhone

I go back and forth between Android and Iphone and the 3 times a year is plenty for me as well. Wonder if people on the old plan are going to have to switch to the new plan. Do you have to do something every month to be on the new plan? Do you have to upgrade on a certain day of the month? I like getting the phones I order the day they come out (not that waiting a month is a huge deal). Lots of questions still about this.

Mine just ended and I just decided to pay the extra $250 or so and buy my 6s plus.

There has to be a wicked catch other than paying on taxes every single time

With the current JOD you don't pay taxes on the new device which is huge because taxes on a $800+ phone are substantial. If this is a difference under the new JOD plan that you will have to pay taxes I would rather keep the old plan.

The old JOD is more than enough. As long as the whole cost is distributed over 18 months and there's no $100 down payment. Losing $100 every month in each switch would really suck. S8+, iP7+, etc currently have down payments I believe.

Hmmmm, tempting, but I always seem to get minor scratches on my phones, so not sure how well that would work for me. p.s.: "latest incantation of the plan" should be "latest incarnation of the plan"

lol this is copy paste from last year, not all phones are elegible and that counts iPhones, the only phones available on JOD are smart picks, holy get your facts straight Alan F.
