    My question is with JOD is there still a down payment? I have 0 down on (most) devices but will the 0 down apply for the note 7?

    Good thing about being shipped to me is I don't have to wait 2 hours at the store to have them switch my SIM card, ring me up, etc. My county only has one Tmobile store, otherwise I have to drive at least 25 miles to my south or almost 40 miles to my north. However got a ton of Verizon stores in my area and sprint.

    Yup,

    I usually pick up at a UPS store,

    Not a Tmo store.

    I've only been with T-Mobile about 8 months and this will be my first Jump but I thought one of the benefits of JoD was no down payment?

    That was one of the benefits, but it appears that they're changing it this time. Looks like the $70 down payment will be required for everyone.

    If they add a down payment to JoD, that's going to be pretty disappointing.

    Just went the jod page. As of about 5 mins ago all Jump On demand upgrades are zero upfront. This should be no different. The only prices I've seen so far are regular EIP prices.

    That's all I've seen as well. I've sent a DM to them on Twitter to see if I can get an answer on JoD pricing.

    I've only been with JOD since the s7 release. I didn't even realize 0 down was a benefit of JOD. I thought I was getting 0 down for having good standing for paying on time for over a year or something like that

    The rep just told me $69.99 down, $33.50 for 18 months, $177 residual. Pretty disappointing as that really elevates the cost of ownership with JoD if you actually switch 3 times/year and down payments are the new norm.

    So the rep is telling me that no down payment only applies to 'base' models of devices and since it's 64gb, it's a premium device. Wouldn't the fact that 64gb being the only option make it also the base model by default? This is some crap by T-Mobile.

    Well, I put $100 down for the iPhone 6S Plus on JOD and I would get part of that back each month as a $7 credit. Even when I jumped to the S7 Edge, I continued to get the credit. So you get your down payment back if JOD still works this way.

    Well reps have been wrong before. though it sounds realistic I'm hoping it's not. I'll be complaining cause that's not what's advertised

    That's interesting info. Thanks for that. I'll ask the rep because they definitely aren't telling me that right now in DM.

    Yep, I'm complaining right now via DM lol. They are trying to say it's a premium model because of storage capacity but 64gb is the base model.

    If the poster above is correct and the deposit gets issued back in credit, I'll feel better about it. I'd prefer no money down like is advertised, but if I recoup some with a credit, it's not as bad.

    Probably should. I also hate it when these stores offer to install the glass protector too. Like when my dad bought Zagg HD screen protector at Best Buy for his S5 they put it on and it ended up having some specs of dirt under it.

    But yes then I'm probably better off having the phone shipped directly to me and popping the SIM card in myself. I just hate having to stand there to get waited on too. Up in St. Louis where I lived they had Tmobile stores everywhere. I had 3 stores within about 3 miles of me so waiting was never an issue because they got so many stores they are never swamped unless you go to the one in the mall.

    I'm on my mom's plan so I had to bring my mom with me, but last time they let me buy the phone without her there since I wasn't making any changes to the number or plan. She hated waiting a long time when I bought my Note 5.
    I never understood the obsession with reps opening the box up right then and there. At least ask. In the past they just tore into it and I had them give me a new one on one occasion. They'll give you a story about how they have to set it up but it's a simple phone call if you take it home sealed with you.

    Actually if you look at the first link, it says $69.99 down. The Note 5 64GB was $100 down.

    It says $69.99 for EIP. I haven't seen anything except the DM from the rep on Twitter that says JoD will require down payment. It's not very uncarrier to advertise no money up front for JoD and then require it.

    And they can't get away with calling it a premium model because it's 64gb. There isn't an offer for a lower storage option. And my V10 is 64gb and a down payment wasn't required.

    But anyway, if they do in fact give a bill credit if you don't complete the 18 month lease, it's a wash. If they take my down payment and pocket it, then JoD is almost not worth it.

    This rep is telling me the down payment is not pro-rated back when you Jump to another device. So I replied with... You are telling me that if I get the Note 7 and decide in a month to use another Jump to another device that it will cost me $69.99+$33.50= $103.49 plus taxes to own the Note 7 for a whole 30 days? That's real uncarrier for the customer isn't it.

    Maybe this is your confusion. The post says EIP, but the link to the tmobile site does not say EIP. Unless I missed it, could you quote it for me?

    ETA I only found this

    Equipment Installment Plan: Down payment & unfinanced portion required at purchase. Must remain on qualifying service in good standing for duration of EIP agreement.

    Yea it's no different than buying an unlocked phone at best buy and putting the sim card in yourself.

    It's EIP when it's 24 monthly payments. It says $69.99 down, 24 payments of $32.50, that's EIP. Jump on demand is 18 payments and then a residual.
