    I have the Note 9.

    I have T-mobile and I've always jumped on demand to the next phone when a phone come out. Last year was the only time I didn't because of the Fold so I waited but after reviews, I decided not to get the Fold and I just never jumped to the 10.

    However, the 18 month is up and I have to jump to a new phone soon so I'm thinking about the 10+.

    I notice prices are still the same 1299.00ish. I never paid attention to price drops because Ive always jumped when the new one came out before.

    Now I'm wondering, will the price likely drop after the S20s come out this Friday? Or anytime soon?

    Trying to see if I should just jump over now or wait a bit. There are any particular patterns phones price generally follow?

    At this point you're better off getting off JUMP and just purchasing the device you have for trading in. S10 and Note 10 are already discounted (S10 officially, Note 10 might just be with extra freebies or better financing) but JUMP leases might still use the original price.

    I really doubt there will be any significant drops until the Note11/20/Fold or whatever comes out later this year.

    I was in the same boat as you. I finally dumped JOD after being on it forever. It's just not a good deal anymore. Thankfully, there weren't any great deals on the Note10+ shortly after launch. Otherwise, I probably would have never been able to break the cycle. I ended up buying out both my wife's and my Note9 for $180 a piece and traded them in to Samsung a couple of weeks ago for the Note10+. $570 each after trade-in.

    Thanks for the advices. Yeah I guess it's a good chance to get off JOD now. The S20 Ultra is 600+ down now, I can only imagine the Note 20 being the same and higher.

    It's 200.00 to buy out the phone on the lease. I see Samsung is offering 500.00 trade in credit for Note 10+ to get it to 599.00 so I guess its about 800.00 total I'll be paying for the 10+ which isn't bad I guess. It probably won't get better than this for awhile I'm assuming.

    You can get a brand new note 10 plus for 600ish on swappa. Why pay carrier prices?

    Hmm, so I did the math, the odd thing is that no matter which route I take, I'm paying about the same price. I'm getting the Note 20 for sure when it comes out so..with very rough estimates, assuming the Note 20 is about 1500.00 and trade in the Note 10+ is a 700.00 credit.

    1.) Get out of lease and buy Note 10+ and Note 20+ Route = If I pay the 200 to get out of the JOD lease, I can trade it in to Samsung for 500.00 credit and the price will be 599.99 so in total so I would have paid 800.00 for the Note 10 Plus (same if I bought new on Swappa). When the Note 20 comes out, again assuming 1500 price tag and 700.00 trade in (800.00 total), In total between now and me getting the Note 20, I would have paid 1600.00 in total from the Note 10+ and Note 20.

    2.) Continue Leasing Route = If I just do the Jump, I would avoid paying the 200.00 to buy out the phone but I'd still have to pay 200 down to jump to the Note 10+. Assuming Note 20 comes out in August like it did historically, I would have paid 200.00 down + 40.00 a month until August (200.00 total) and then the Note 20 comes out, assuming its about 700.00 down and then 40.00 a month for 12 month, totally 480.00 (12 months until Note 21 comes out). 200+200+700+480 = 1580 so its about 1600 as well.

    3.) Pay off Lease, Skip Note 10+ and Buy Note 20 = Even if I just pay off the lease and then wait until the Note 20 comes out in August, the price still comes out to be about the same since I guess with the assumption of a 700.00 trade in value, 200 to get off lease + 1500.00 = 1700.00|

    Of course there are a few assumptions with the numbers here but even tweaking it a bit only changes it by +/- 100.00 or so.
