    Was tuned in at phonedog.com and would like to share this with everyone, particularly to those who are currently with Tmo like myself and others who may think of jumping to the magenta. (Pls see link) T-Mobile 'Jump' program rumored to allow customers to upgrade as often as they want | PhoneDog

    Sound off and let me know what you guys think... i think its a great news for us Tmo subscribers that we may no longer face the 2 year imprisonment contract lol.

    I dearly apologize if this was unintentionally placed in the wrong side of the forum. Moderators please feel free to move or delete the post. I know this is all "810" but i thought since it also deals with TMo exclusively - i'd share.

    Actually, if you do the math, it's a bit of a ripoff, unless you are rough with your devices. This is what I mean...

    You purchase a new iPhone 5 for $145... You then pay $20 a month in payments for the device for 5 months ($100)... Then you pay $10 a month for 6 months before you can perform your first jump ($60)... This makes the 6 month device cost $305...

    Then you can go to the store in January and swap your iPhone 5 for an iPhone 5s for $200, make another 5 months of payments ($100) and pay for 6 months of jump again ($60) before upgrading again... Total cost $360 for the second device...

    This equals $660 for the device per year and you still don't own the device. I think the average user is better off purchasing outright - $650 for that iPhone 5 - then selling after 1 year to upgrade. That 1 year old iPhone would be worth $350-400 after a year and the new one would be $650 - so if you keep that cycle going, you are only paying $250 per device rather than $300-400.

    Again, if you are rough on handsets and like to break screens and such, the included PHP is a nice deal.
