T-Mobile Drops Huge Lineup of Devices to $0 Down Starting Tomorrow

jump

As far as monthly payment programs for devices go, T-Mobile’s JUMP! program is probably your best bet. T-Mobile is looking to make that deal even better starting tomorrow with a deal on almost all of their top smartphones and devices. Head into a T-Mobile store tomorrow and as a part of their JUMP! program you can grab a top smartphone for no money down upfront. 

Phones like the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 2 are topping the list. Sony’s Xperia Z and the HTC One are also included in this program. Of course you are going to pay for these in monthly installments instead and that is where T-Mobile is going to make their money back. This program raises the monthly cost of the phones ever so slightly to even out the cost, but it’s still a pretty good deal.

If you’re looking to get into T-Mobile’s LTE lineup, this might be the sale for you. Is anyone interested in this?

    How long does this promo last?

  • xpyroxcorex

    can i sign up with tmobile and pay the 20 some a month for the phone but not pay for service??

  • John

    I wouldn’t use t-mobile if the phone and service were free. It’s all about quality of service and other then the big 2 everything else is worthless.

  • TylerCameron

    And I’m the only one who notices the EIP is $25 extra than the usual $20?..

  • Ashish Raj

    Hmm.. So, right now, I can pay a down payment of $99 towards HTC one and then pay remaining as 24 equal monthly payments of $20.. thereby making my total :99+ (24*20) = 579.
    Starting tomorrow, I pay $0 down payment but make 24 equal monthly payments of $25… thereby making my total: 0+ (25*24) = 600!!

    So, how is this a good deal??? Am i missing something here?

    • JoshGroff

      This makes the jump program even more enticing. S4 (or one/XZ) $210+tax compared to the previous $279+tax, assuming you take the 6 month upgrade. (Which is noticeably less than most phones would fall in said time frame.) Guess I’m stopping over tomorrow. (Picking up the Z if you get to keep the speaker when you jump) ;)

      Cost between the 2 evens out at 21 months. (new deal is actually $4 more at that point) In case anyone cares.

      Posted this earlier, if you upgrade before 21 months, it’s actually cheaper. (The difference at 6 months, which is when most of us would upgrade, is actually quite huge.)

      • Ashish Raj

        Maybe.. but if you upgrade, you have to give back your phone!

        • JoshGroff

          I’d have to do the math, but at 6-9 months, you’re actually losing less than you would selling the phone second hand, and rebuying the new one, assuming the phone is still mint condition after that time. (and on top of that, you also have phone insurance)

  • Oaxican509

    Anyone know how long this promotion is going on for? My contract with Verizon ends the 27th of August!!

    • JoshGroff

      From the looks of it, it’s permanent. Either way, I’m switching tomorrow so I can run down that 6 month timer.

    • Travis Sorenson

      I work at T-Mobile, we were told its a limited time only. My best guess is 2 weeks to a month.

    • Tojen1981

      ETF would probably be fairly cheap with one month left on your contract.

  • http://www.twitter.com/thewizkid95 Jesus Otero

    The HTC One will be mine!!!
    Does anyone know how much it’d be if you have not so well credit?

  • milanyc

    Not to brag, but I’m literarily maxing out the entire 10Mhz FDD LTE sector on T-Mobile’s test site in New York City! 73.6Mbps down: http://i.imgur.com/yKMynV8.png

    I get that some people happen to live in areas where T-Mobile isn’t the best choice, but I couldn’t be happier. Not to mention their price structure…

    • Richard Yarrell

      T-mobile in New York City is better than Verizon and At&t so easily it’s pretty comical. I am so glad I kicked Verizon to the curb.

  • Travis Sorenson

    Seen some comments about people not being interested in these devices listed. Just so you know EVERY PHONE WILL BE ZERO DOWN PAYMENT. I work at TMO, they just did a couple devices on the press release to show example pricing.

    FAIL!

    • PhoenixPath

      Spam much?

      • Chippah

        apparently you do that for tmo.
        the more we hammer this into Johnnys head, the more he might actually TRY to turn up better service.

        • PhoenixPath

          So…you don’t understand what “spam’ is. Got it.

          • Chippah

            nah, i gotcha, I was breakin your balls, Discuss stinks and double posts or will not attach files correctly..

          • PhoenixPath

            Happens to everyone. They really need to work on that. :)

  • crussell

    At least your coverage isn’t this bad…. :/

  • Jordan Montgomery

    I wish they had coverage where l live. Would definitely switch.

  • JonathonFlores

    I’m interested in tmo but not with any of those devices.

  • 2Ceedz

    I just left vzw for t-mobile today…….for a savings of $160/mo …. I think a few 2g areas is ok for that kind of savings….vzw (who i have always loved and been with) can suk it….sick of not getting new phones, locked down as hell phones (when/if they come to vzw), and totally sick of vzw upping the prices on everything while your stuck in a contract…. If you have service in your area…in a year you can save ALOT of money. Plus with JUMP you get insurance AND the ability to upgrade twice a year. (Not to mention they have either a really hot chick or Bill Hader as their “spokes people”. :P) …. Sorry for spelling…and had to add that last part for a LOL….. C-Ya’s vzw and contracts!!!

    • 2Ceedz

      Just an FYI…T-Mobile is doing this promo, but it is harder to get. I got lucky and got a HTC ONE yesterday for free (taxes only)…. and got a call today saying they downgraded my credit so that I couldnt qualify for the 0 down promo. Thank goodness i got it yesterday, as there is not much they can do now….but wanted to let you all know. LOVING my HTC ONE tho….(once i can learn to kill most of this bloatware, will love even more).

    • Richard Yarrell

      Much congrats to your move to T-mobile. I gladly kicked VERIZON to the curb in June 2012 and brought my two lines of service over to t-mobile. I haven’t looked back since it has been a wonderful ride. I will be adding two additional lines of service later in Oct/Nov for my Note 3 and Nexus 7 LTE tablet. Nothing beats T-mobile and there plans and unlimited data.

  • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

    Sounds like a lot of readers are just jealous that they can’t enjoy these great moves on T-Mobiles part because they aren’t in great coverage areas. Sucks I know, but T-Mobile is in a lot of places with great coverage. No they aren’t everywhere, but that doesn’t take away from the awesomeness that this is.

    They are gaining subscribers with these moves, and more subscribers will bring them revenue and the capability to continually improve and expand upon their network.

    I’m in Los Angeles and T-Mobile is pretty damn good here. It wasn’t like this even 5 years ago. They have really improved quite a bit.

  • JoshGroff

    This makes the jump program even more enticing. S4 $210+tax compared to the previous $279+tax, assuming you take the 6 month upgrade. Guess I’m stopping over tomorrow.

  • bionicwaffle

    I’m pretty sure this chart is wrong. T-Mobile should pay you $27 a month to take an iPhone 5.

    • evol1

      Oh you good, youuu good.

    • Pedro

      You DO realize it has an extra row of icons, don’t you?

      • PhoenixPath

        lmao…awesome.

      • bionicwaffle

        Good point! Considering that and adult (target market) rather than child size fingers and the fact that the iPhone 5 screen is too small I can expect an increase in my number of bad taps, opening apps I don’t want. My post didn’t take that into consideration. T-Mobile should pay $37/month for someone to take an iPhone 5 off their hands.

  • Chippah

    Email John Legere – CEO of T-mo Directly like i did, I wrote him saying

    PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY! I want to ditch VZW!,- Help!

    He sent my email to his executive team who responded that “we have no service in your area and NO PLANS to add it anytime in the future”

    I forwarded that back directly to him… and said “See now why your #4?”

    • Tyler Durden

      Cool story, bro

      • d-rock

        You must be the t-mobile fanboi out here…. Least they have 1.

        • Tyler Durden

          I have Verizon, but nice try

          • d-rock

            so if you have VZ, why are you dogging everyone who’s dogging TMO…bro?

        • PhoenixPath

          So claiming T-Mobile has decent coverage in certain areas makes one a T-Mobile fanboy?

          Cool story, bro.

          • d-rock

            No, he’s been dogging people who are dogging TMO for valid reasons…bro.

          • PhoenixPath

            *laughs*

            “dogging”

            Clever stuff. Only problem is; “Cool story, bro” is one comment among many and hardly equates to “fanboy” status.

            Unless anyone who disagrees with or “dogs” the haters is a fanboy…

          • PhoenixPath

          • Richard Yarrell

            Verizon fanboys are so much worse. They walk around feeling like pay more is a badge on honor. Verizon is the WORST CARRIER for updates and god forbid that crappy wifi notifications in the pull down menu and stripping out of features on handsets not Droid devices. Verizon sucks monkey balls and so do there customers.

          • squiddy20

            “Verizon fanboys are so much worse.” Says the T-Mobile/Samsung fanboy who can’t go 2 posts without saying how “pimp slapping” or “boss” or “gangster” either of them are…

          • Richard Yarrell

            Sprint sucks ass just like you

          • squiddy20

            Oooo! Good comeback. Did it take you a few minutes to come up with that? Gosh, what immature retard you are.

    • Sqube

      I would love to see a screencap of that.

      If I had gone through that exchange, I would have posted it as a tip to every website I could think of.

      • Chippah

        I should and will!

    • T4rd

      At least they responded. I’m sure Verizon or AT&T wouldn’t have even done that or you would have received some automated response and never heard from them again.

      • Chippah

        ACTUALLY! – I originally Tweeted John Legere directly,
        and how creepy is this!, – VZWsupport saw this tweet, (I didnt follow them.) and they responded to my tweet to John. and then VZWSupport called me.

        • T4rd

          That is surprising, hah. I’m curious as to what they said to you in the tweet and phone call now. I’m guessing you just complained about them dropping unlimited data and all their other horrible policy changes?
          Verizon has actually had excellent CS since I’ve had them the past 8 years. I just didn’t think trying to contact their CEO or any other higher execs would ammount to anything as they’re clearly driven by raping our bank accounts and nothing else.

        • Sqube

          Actually, VZWSupport is really active on Twitter. I’ve DMed with them a couple of times trying to fix issues I’ve had with my GNex. I’ll give them their credit where it’s due.

          • Richard Yarrell

            Verizon Galaxy Nexus is pure GARBAGE that’s why I kicked Verizon to the curb for T-mobile in the first place. You couldn’t get me back on Verizon for free service.

  • Chippah

    John Legere (T-mo CEO) can show up at my birthday party with free booze and hookers too,

    Still doesn’t help the fact that if you live 30 min out of a major city you will have ZERO service.

    • emoney

      a friend lives 5-10 minutes outside of a major city and is constantly sticking his tmobile phone in the air to get better service.

    • PhoenixPath

      I live 45 minutes southwest of Minneapolis.

      I get HSPA+ where I live and LTE 10 minutes Northeast.

      In other words; Stop the BS. Please. Yes, they are worse than VZW or AT&T in terms of total “area”, but where they do have coverage, it is even sometimes *better* than VZW/ATT’s.

      *gasp*

      Yeah, I said it.

      Better.

      On my trip to and from work VZW dropped voice and data completely. Every day. Without fail. T-Mobile has me covered the entire trip.

      Is this true everywhere? Of course not. But then, it is true *somewhere*. More than I can say for the crap you just posted…

  • AnotherAndroidKid

    I like the idea of nothing down, but not having to pass the credit pull. I reserve those things for real value like rewards credit cards.

    But really, with Shiny and 4.3 on my GNex I’m sticking with VZ for the time being.

  • d-rock

    everyone take screenshots of compared coverage between T-mobile and AT&T or Verizon and then post them on Twiter to @T-mobile and @john_legere and let them know that THIS is why they can’t win our business.

  • Al-Burrit0

    If only Tmo had the coverage like the top 2 Carriers!

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      If they did trust me you wouldn’t be getting these kind of pricing plans.

    • cromo8

      T-Mobile covers 96% of america. Verizon and AT&T cover 97%

      • trwb

        Coverage is a broad term. If you get 2g coverage, it is still coverage.

      • Al-Burrit0

        Yea, but i’d like to get covered by more than just 2g on tmobile. I understand that where i live its not that big, so it would take while to get 4g lte, but cover at least 3g. Even sprint covers me in 3g in my area. ATT gets me hspa+ and i havn’t checked verizon but they released a statement saying 99% of there 3g coverage is now 4g lte and i do get 3g here by verizon.

      • Rodeojones000

        The word coverage is extremely relative here. Technically, I fall within T-Mobile’s coverage area, but said coverage is barely 2G. No thanks.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Verizon is extremely overrated and drastically overpriced.

  • Tyler Durden

    I still love all the people who talk trash on t-mobile because they are making you pay full price….when every carrier makes you pay full price one way or another lol

    • d-rock

      Only trash I talk on Tmobile is THIS

      • Tyler Durden

        Okay that’s where you are. Still plenty of people that have full coverage everywhere they live.

        • NYCHitman1

          Like me :)

          • New_Guy

            And me

      • Al-Burrit0

        yep best i get is 2g :

        • Justin W

          I would roam… On AT&T’s network. I’m just going to stay on a prepaid plan on AT&T.

          • Al-Burrit0

            Yea i had At&t prepaid and i hardly ever had problems. Im problably switching back if the moto x is cheap off contract.

          • Justin W

            I’m ditching my MVNO (StraightTalk) and jumping on AT&T’s GoPhone prepaid once we have LTE access in my city. We have it 20 minutes north of here (in the middle of no where, mind you), but not here.

          • Al-Burrit0

            Lol down here we get hspa+ which is good enough for me.

          • Justin W

            I get HSPA+, but in my area it’s very slow compared to LTE – I get around 4mbps down, average of 512kbps up, with a max of 6 down and 1-2 up. That might be because I’m on an MVNO and not actually subscribed to AT&T, but still, if I’m going to subscribe to AT&T, either way I should get faster speeds.

      • Mark A.

        Solution: do not live in Oklahoma. ;)

      • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

        Yup, same here in northern New England :(

      • d-rock

        I find it funny that people would vote this down like it’s not a valid complaint about T-mobile. True, they have great coverage if you don’t need to leave the city, but so does Cricket.

  • tech247

    Man, this looks a little desperate. I wonder if all recent promotions are still not bringing customers in…..

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      It could be. To me this deals sounds great and all, but I can’t change until they have great coverage. I just can’t afford to be out of service between my commute :/

      • Tyler Durden

        texting and driving is bad, and the calls can wait while you cook meth

        • JoshGroff

          I got the joke, and I still have yet to watch Breaking Bad. Is it really as good as everyone says?

          • Tyler Durden

            Yes. The annoying b*tch of a wife may be the only bad thing about it.
