Jump On Demand Pricing for iPhone X | T-Mobile Support
I have been told as recently as this morning that there is no pricing set yet I had no idea that the manufacturer was setting the carrier's leasing deals. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but it sounds weird. In any case, I really want to know how much this device is going to cost before I decide if I'm going to Jump to it So when exactly is there going to be a price?!?
The down payment is what I'm most concerned about. To me, once large down payments are introduced like this probably be will next August , the JOD program is pointless. It's foolish to say that you can jump every 30 days but you need to plop down large sunk costs up front, and I think that the down payment requirement will effectively kill off the program which might be exactly what T-Mo is hoping will happen.
That being said, the iPhone X might be the last of the iPhones that can be had on the program without a down payment Traditionally, they have set "base model" phones without a down payment, as this is what the original promotion of JOD was based on -- no money out of pocket. I would hope not, but until I hear from them directly on the pricing, there is no way to know for sure. Either that, or I'm totally underestimating exactly what kind of control Apple has over carriers' respective programs.
Apple has almost complete control on any of their products down to product placements in stores. It's one of the carriers pet peeves, but to not have the iPhone on their network is troublesome. Remember Verizon said they didn't need the iPhone on their network and 1 year later they started selling the iPhone? Verizon is one of those companies that are control happy. Starting next year is when T-Mobile will change their policy on JoD to start having down payments. Everyone asked the same questions when the Note 8 was about to be released.
That's kind of what I'm thinking. If they didn't put a down payment on the iPhone 8 Plus or the Note 8, I'm thinking that it will be hard for them to justify putting a down payment on the X considering the whole "no money out of pocket" angle the JOD program was pushed with initially.
If T-Mo tries to cram in a down payment on this phone, I'll keep my Note 8 for a while. The JOD program has been fun while it lasted, but it's clearly effectively coming to an end with the introduction of all these down payments.
Honestly, I never thought it was financially sustainable long term so I'm not surprised. Especially with them moving from 3 times a year to 12 times a year and people took advantage of it I can see if being less sustainable. I assume it'll be exactly the same as regular EIP pricing, but with the option after 18 months to buy or return the phone. I think the 12 times per year thing was a way for them to give a little after taking a lot by adding down payments since they were announced concurrently.
Once you add down payments, you can make it possible to jump every week, and it compensates the company for the depreciation that hits a phone, even in like new condition. In any case, if you or anyone else finds out what the JOD terms will be for the X, post it up. I spoke with a rep two days ago. She said there's still no info on whether there will be a down payment on that phone because now on whoever is on JOD and wants to upgrade to the NOTE 8, will have to pay a large down ayment of around Those people who got the note8 earlier, were lucky not to pay any down payment.
So its either a large down payment, small down payment or no down payment for the iPhone x. I called in and didn't have to make a down payment on the Note 8, and I am on JoD. As far as I know there is not now nor has there ever been a down payment required on the Note 8. You only pay a down payment for EIP. I don't know why the rep said that. Just came across the following article regarding the screen of iPhone x.
Which means less viewable content than the plus. What if the iPhone 8 Plus is better than the iPhone X? Personally, my feelings are that the "notch" is not exactly optimal and is a cheesy way for Apple to claim a higher screen to body ratio while not really providing that much usable space.
That being said, app makers will start to find ways around the notch and will adapt to it -- as will the users. I would be shocked if Apple doesn't release a "plus" size iPhone X type phone next year who knows what the phones will be named by that point.
The iPhone X is going to sell in big numbers just because it's the latest-and-greatest from Apple. The reality is that I certainly hope that the X is better than the 8 Plus since the latter is only marginally better than the 7 Plus. This is the reason why I'm irritated at T-Mo because they don't have pricing out yet Just wanted to pop in here and say we still don't have official JOD pricing, or news to share regarding stock projections or shipping timelines -- the JOD pricing should come closer to pre-order, and the shipping timelines closer to launch.
We'll be answering questions here with information as we get it: Thanks for the update. I'm not sure what "closer to pre-order" means since it's only about hours before the pre-order opens up. Quite frankly, and I hope you can understand where I'm coming from, this is ridiculous. And no one on the T-Mobile end can get their stories straight JOD for iPhone X is not yet available. I'm sorry about that Can you folks understand how frustrating this all is? Someone needs to set the price and push it out so people can make an educated decision.
It's absolutely ridiculous that you can't get pricing published when the preorder window opens in just several days from now.
And, if last year's preorder fiasco was any indication, I'm not holding out high hopes that the process is going to go even close to smoothly when I DO call in for the preorder. Not to be a jerk, but it's a good thing that T-Mo's pricing is cheap because the customer service is seriously lacking. If it wasn't for the price, I would have left a long time ago. I don't think I've been able to do a single thing to my account within the past 3 years without having some major screwup that involved LOTS of time spent in the local store to try to figure out.
And promises get made that never get followed up on until I have to call and harass someone myself. I'm seriously frustrated beyond belief. JOD price for iPhone X is out: Thank you for the JOD price info. Can anyone confirm this? Greetings, Support Community members and passers-by!

I wanted to update with JUMP! On Demand pricing -- I know you've all been patiently waiting and I can appreciate the frustration that the wait has caused for some.
This information was released last night after we left, so sorry for the delay! Thanks to magenta for the link, but there are two scenarios for the 64 GB device for well-qualified customers based on each individual account, and one pricing scenario for well-qualified customers purchasing the GB device. Here are the possibilities:. The variable pricing for the 64 GB device is new, and depends on the individual account. With superphones increasing in retail price, it's possible that the new price point on some of these devices will require a higher out of pocket than before for less expensive equipment, but provide a lower monthly installment cost.
Finally, a straight answer! You should work for T-Mobile. Here are the possibilities: Go to original post Log in to reply.
