Changes Reportedly Coming to T-Mobile’s JUMP! – Upgrade at Any Time, No Limits, and Tablets Added

According to an internal memo received by Tmonews, changes are coming to T-Mobile’s JUMP! early upgrade program on February 23. The monthly payment plan, which seemed to ignite a new trend in the wireless space, will no longer have any time constraints or upgrade limits, and will soon include tablets as well. 

As of right now, JUMP! requires that you wait 6 months with your new phone before upgrading again, whereas the new version of JUMP! will let you upgrade whenever. You also won’t find limits on how often you can upgrade, so if you’d like, upgrading four or five times per year could become a reality. All you would have to do is trade in your current phone and receive credit on all of the remaining payments or “up to half of the phone’s original cost.” Tmonews didn’t have ultra-clear specifics on that portion.

Adding in tablets seems like the next logical step for these monthly payment plans, so by no means does this move sound surprising. No specific details were mentioned in terms of differences between tablet and phone upgrades with JUMP!, so they could be identical.

So there you have it.

T-Mobile expected to change JUMP! terms to remove upgrade wait period, add tablets to the mix

T-Mobile CEO John Legere

Terms of trade-ins and pricing not entirely clear at this point

T-Mobile is set to make the first major revision to its JUMP! upgrade plans, giving you the freedom to upgrade as often as you’d like. According to documents acquired by TmoNews, starting February 23rd T-Mobile will remove restrictions on JUMP! that kept customers from upgrading more than twice every 12 months.

The current system with JUMP! indicates that you must pay off 50 percent of your phone before trading it in, then forgiving the rest of your financing payments so that you can pick out and finance a new device. With this impending change you will be able to trade in your phone regardless of how long you’ve been paying it off, but it isn’t entirely sure whether or not you’ll have to pay to make up the difference to a new phone. Again referring to this leaked information, it seems T-Mobile will forgive any outstanding financing balance for your original handset, up to half of the phone’s original cost.

If the value of the phone you’re trading in covers at least 50 percent of its original price, you’ll be cleared to pick out a new phone for $0 down and begin financing it. It isn’t completely clear at this point how (or if) T-Mobile will expect you to make up the difference if your phone is no longer worth at least half of what it was when you purchased, but that should be cleared up when the changes actually go live.

Indications are that existing JUMP! customers will be brought into the new system automatically, with the ability to upgrade as soon as they’d like, so long as they’ve been a JUMP! customer for at least six months (the old wait period). Tablets are getting added into the JUMP! program as well, although we’re not sure how many people will really take advantage of that deal. In fact, we’re not sure how many people will want to upgrade their device more often than every six months in any circumstance — at least T-Mobile gets the good publicity of removing restrictions from the program.

Samsung Galaxy Mega could be headed to MetroPCS

Galaxy Mega

6.3-inch handset spotted wearing prepaid carrier's branding

Following the gigantic smartphone's launch on AT&T this summer, it appears the Samsung Galaxy Mega (6.3) might be going prepaid with a launch on MetroPCS. TmoNews has acquired a couple of shots of what appears to be a Metro-branded Mega, which it says will be SIM-locked to the MetroPCS network.

We've reviewed both the international and AT&T versions of the Mega and found that it makes more sense as a miniature tablet than an oversized phone. It's got a 6.3-inch 720p display, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and 8 or 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD. The Galaxy Mega will reportedly launch on MetroPCS before the holidays.

T-Mobile HTC One nationwide rollout slated for June 5

T-Mobile HTC One

After initial launch in 300 stores, T-Mobile's HTC One will arriv​e in the rest of the U.S. next Wednesday

The T-Mobile HTC One is set to arrive in stores nationwide from next Wednesday, May 5 following its launch in some 300 stores earlier in the month, according to reports from TmoNews. The site says the expanded HTC One rollout coincides with an increase in production from HTC, following the resolution of early component supply issues. (That's corroborated by recent comments from the company's North Asia president.) Launching alongside the HTC One on June 5 is the BlackBerry Q10.

The T-Mobile HTC One can be yours with a $99.99 down payment on a 24-month installment plan; alternatively it'll cost you $579.99 up-front. For more on the HTC One, check out our in-depth review.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE reportedly launching June 5

Galaxy S3 LTE

Galaxy Exhibit also tipped for May 29 arrival

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch over and done with, T-Mobile USA is looking to bolster its smartphone line-up with an LTE-capable version of the Galaxy S3. T-Mobile internal screenshots obtained by TmoNews show a Jun. 5 launch date for the device. No word on pricing yet, but TmoNews speculates that the carrier will likely replace its current HSPA-only S3 with the new 4G LTE model. T-Mobile currently sells the Galaxy S3 on its instalment plans with a $69.99 down payment.

Alongside the S3 LTE, T-Mobile looks set to debut the Galaxy Exhibit, a phone we first saw leaked back in February. With a dual-core 1GHz CPU and a WVGA screen, the Exhibit looks like T-Mo's answer take on Galaxy S3 Mini. The Exhibit is listed with a May 29 launch date.

T-Mobile Unlimited Plans may get tethering bundled starting Wednesday

T-Mobile leaked screenshot

Value and Classic plans could get tethering pre-packaged with 500MB, 2.5GB, and 4.5GB options

In a screenshot recently obtained by TmoNews, it appears T-Mobile may be doing further restructuring of its post-paid plans. If true, unlimited data for both the Value and Classic plans will come pre-bundled with various tethering options starting on Wednesday. Basically, instead of buying unlimited data and a separate tethering bucket, subscribers will buy unlimited data with 500MB, 2.5GB, or 4.5GB of included tethering.

Currently, 500MB of tethering is already included with unlimited data. Instead of subscribers getting a $10 add-on for 2.5GB of tethering with their $20 unlimited data plan, the same plan will start at $30 and include tethering. For $40 a month, there is also a 4.5GB tethering option. Classic Plans will get the same changes: a $30 base plan with 500MB of tethering, a $40 plan with 2.5GB of tethering, and a $50 plan with 4.5GB of tethering.

It makes sense to see further simplification of T-Mobile's plans, making customer choices easier and less confusing (and in some cases cheaper). We'll be waiting for the official announcement in the coming days to see if these changes pan out.

T-Mobile leak hints at an HTC One launch on April 24th

TMobile leak hints at an HTC One launch on April 24th

We’ve known for a while that April 19th is the big day for AT&T and Sprint versions of the HTC One, yet news of the T-Mobile version’s release has been thin. If TmoNews‘ copy of a staff memo is on target, though, the UnCarrier’s subscribers will only have to wait until April 24th to get their turn. The note tells workers that “select stores” will have the One that day — it doesn’t mention which stores those might be, but it’s safe to say this could mean a launch later than the one Best Buy claimed days ago. When we already know the $99 regular price, about all that’s seemingly left is for T-Mobile to give the final word.

Sony Xperia Z could be on the way to T-Mobile

Sony_Xperia_Z_Talk_Android_

Sources are indicating that T-Mobile is in the process of testing the Sony Xperia Z, which could result in Sony returning to the T-Mobile portfolio. TmoNews reports three different sources over the past two weeks have all confirmed Sony is testing the device. The Xperia Z is a 5-inch 1080p display smartphone powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, a 13MP camera with Exmor RS for mobile and HDR video, and is dust and water resistant. Although it may not be garnering all of the attention that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 or the HTC One are grabbing, the Xperia Z is still a top tier device and should be a welcome option for consumers on the T-Mobile network.

Just because T-Mobile is testing a device does not guarantee it will be offered to consumers. This happened last fall with the HTC One X+ which was never picked up by T-Mobile. Still, the fact that the device is getting put through the paces by T-Mobile is a good sign.

Sony Xperia Z may be headed to T-Mobile USA

T-Mobile Xperia Z

Sony flagship currently being tested, ac​cording to reports

It looks like the Xperia ZL might not be the only high-end Sony phone headed to the U.S. this spring, as fresh images and reports from TmoNews suggest its international counterpart, the Xperia Z, may be coming to T-Mobile USA. The site reports "via three separate sources" that the Xperia Z, codenamed 'Yuga,' is currently in testing on T-Mobile, and offers the image above as evidence.

That's no guarantee that it'll ever see the light of day — carriers often test devices before deciding not to release them. But at least now there seems to be a non-zero chance of T-Mo finally getting a high-end Sony phone to call its own.

The Xperia Z packs a 5-inch, 1080p display, and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, with 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor RS rear camera. It's also water and dust-resistant, unlike the Xperia ZL. In our review of the device last month, we praised its performance and build quality, but raised some concerns over its less than ergonomic design and slightly buggy camera software.

T-Mo fans, hit the comments and let us know if you'd be interested in a magenta Xperia Z.

Lumia 710 for T-Mobile won’t be updated to Windows Phone 7.8

Lumia 710 for TMobile won't be updated to Windows Phone 78

For reasons that aren’t quite clear, T-Mobile has just confirmed to TmoNews that the Nokia Lumia 710 won’t receive a bump to Windows Phone 7.8. While the update has taken its share of criticisms as a purely cosmetic revision, we’ve a feeling that more than a few folks were looking forward to the world of resizable live tiles — seems like a reasonable expectation, right? Fortunately, even in spite of T-Mobile’s mind-boggling decision, Lumia 710 owners can take the situation into their own hands and manually install the Windows Phone 7.8 upgrade. We’ll keep you posted if we learn anything more, but in the meantime, you can find the carrier’s painful doublespeak after the break.

T-Mobile Monthly 4G Users Will Be Able To Get an Unlimited Data Plan With No Throttle Starting January 9th

4G Unlimited Data

T-Mobile said they will begin offering the same truly unlimited data plan contract customers currently have for Monthly 4G prepaid customers as well. Normally Monthly 4G service costs $70 for unlimited talk, text and data — with a throttle after 5 gigs of usage. Arguably that’s a lot better than shelling out an extra 10 – $15 for an extra gigabyte on AT&T and Verizon, but it seems that T-Mobile is looking to replace this plan with their truly unlimited data plan, which touts truly unlimited data with no throttle. On the business side of things, this is great news for T-Mobile as it will no doubt attract a plethora of new customers, especially after the carrier begins moving more of its spectrum to the 1900MHz frequency for HSPA+.

TmoNews mentions that the service will launch on January 9th. TmoNews also managed to snag an image of the marketing materials for the new plans.

tmonews-unlimited-data

The only downside this new plan has is the lack of coverage T-Mobile’s HPSA+ has. While T-Mobile does cover “96% of Americans” that does not mean it is the 4G HSPA+ speeds. In fact, the majority of their coverage is their EDGE network, which is extremely too slow to even take advantage of a truly unlimited data plan. Once T-Mobile covers the majority of America with their HSPA+ network, this new data plan will no doubt take-off and possibly even make some of the other carriers out their a bit jealous. If you’re interested in checking out T-Mobile’s coverage, you can check out their coverage map.

Regardless, this is an outstanding plan for those who are in T-Mobile’s HSPA+ coverage.

T-Mobile Monthly4G plans may get an unlimited data tier on January 9th

TMobile Monthly4G plans poised to get unlimited data tier on January 9th

The perpetual gotcha for T-Mobile’s Monthly4G prepaid service has been the absence of truly unlimited data — you could have one advantage or the other, but not both. TmoNews understands that this either/or choice is fading away after spotting what looks to be leaked promo material. Come January 9th, the carrier is reportedly replacing its 5GB Monthly4G tier with an unlimited alternative. The same $70 should net the previous unlimited talk and text, but skip the pesky throttling for very frequent users. As long as customers have good coverage, it’s hard to see a downside for them if this proves real; next week can’t come soon enough.

T-Mobile to offer truly unlimited data on Monthly 4G prepaid plans

T-Mobile Prepaid SIM

Just a few months after debuting its truly unlimited data plan for contract customers, T-Mobile will begin offering the same service option to Monthly 4G prepaid customers as well. Prior to this, the highest tier of the Monthly 4G service was $70 for unlimited talk, text and data — with a throttle after 5GB of usage. It seems that this level will be replaced by a plan of the same price with truly unlimited, unthrottled data. This is a great move for T-Mobile, especially as it moves more of its spectrum to the 1900MHz frequency for HSPA+, which opens up possibilities to a whole host of new unlocked devices. Monthly 4G plans are prepaid, require no credit check or contract and can be used with any unlocked GSM device that supports its frequencies.

TmoNews claims the service will go live just a few short days from now on January 9th, and we'll be sure to check back in and see if that is the case. We've got a picture of the marketing materials for the plans for you to check out after the break. There's another image and more information at the source link below as well.

A leaked internal screen obtained by TmoNews indicates that all T-Mo retail stores will sell the LG-made Nexus in January.

In the meantime, there's still no hint of the Nexus 4 becoming available through Google Play anytime soon. The device was back-ordered by several weeks in December, and remains sold out at present.
