    Agreed. I don't understand why everyone is in uproars over the 130.00. You're getting an outstanding phone and your carrier is allotting many who normally couldn't afford such an expensive phone to pay it down over time.
    JOD's are not meant to be paid off. That's why people are in an uproar. For JUMP, this makes sense. For JOD, it's not.
    So, you either don't care T-mobile is doing a cash grab or haven't figured it out yet.
    As I pointed out before...over 6 months, you're paying an extra $100.

    I am glad you want to pay the $130. I am quite sure the S8+ going to be awesome.
    But why pay it if you don't have to? Last I checked 0$ better than $130. I am on JoD and charging to use JoD should not happen.
    Exactly. Thank you.

    Things are not going to be the same forever and the amount of people paying the $130 is not having any backlash on Tmobile part so from the business side why change anything because a few people are upset. If the Note 8 was not coming out I would have paid the $130 but since it is I stuck with the regular s8.
    The Note8 will be at least $130 down, probably more. Every day they are changing the language. It's not base models now. They are saying the more expensive phones have down payments. So, you're paying $310 to use an S8+ for 6 months instead of $210. Then, you will pay at least $150 down for the Note8. So, in 6 months you would be paying at least $495 for the lease of these phones instead of $245.
    I can't see why more people aren't upset, honestly.

    There are more than just a few people upset. All you have to do is look at Twitter or Facebook to see that.
    But more people are still putting the money down so you have a choice. People are paying the deposit so why change it. If the Note have a deposit I'm sure everyone will pay that to.

    Nobody is being forced to order this phone. Those that do order it are doing so on their own choice. I for one believe the phone is worth the price and am looking forward to it. I went through the Note 7 return two times and my next best option at the time was the 7edge which to me doesn't compare.

    There are a lot of upset people. The problem is many people are ordering the S8 instead because the reps are offering that as a no down payment alternative and people are going for it. So the customer leaves the call with no down payment and feeling pretty good but didn't get the phone they actually called to order. So the amount of people that complain is probably less than the Note 7 because the reps couldn't persuade people into a similar device with no down payment because there wasn't a similar device.

    So what part of #uncarrier are you going to be OK with Legere changing or getting rid of next?

    The regular jump isn't a bad in between. Once you pay half the device off you can jump to another one

    You are right. Nobody is forced to pay it. However, there are to many people drinking the Legere Slow Cooker Kool aid and not realizing he is going back on his word, just like he criticizes the other carriers for doing.

    Well in my case, I prefer T-Mobile over all of the other carriers and I'm willing to put up with a few things like this.

    I'm on the original grandfather JOD plan. Not planning on changing any time soon. How many jumps do we get in one year? 2or 3? I read somewhere in these forums that we JOD has 3 jumps a year. I thought that's not right we get 2...right?

    3 jumps per 12 month period dating from your first jump

    So basically you could use the first jump let's say to get the S8 and wait 6 months and get the N8 and then after that 6 months and use again..?

    I don't believe there is such a thing as a grandfathered JOD plan. You either have JUMP! or JOD. The terms can change at any time. There are 3 jumps per 12 months. However, they are making it more expensive to do the 3 jumps per year because they are not honoring the zero down anymore. Which, I am sure, is their end game. Sounds a lot like Verizon, yes?
    My point with one of the reps on Twitter was that they could consider "allowing" no down payment on accounts with good standing or honor the terms at which you signed onto JOD. But, they don't.

    Once I get onto the Note8, I will be back on the yearly upgrade cycle as I was before the Note7 debacle.
    At least that way, they can only get me once a year.

    I mean I have the "original JOD" plan after they initially launched it way back when. I was told a few years ago they don't offer that anymore. That is why I will never change my plan. My wife has the other "jump" where is only every 12 months. Which I don't like that.

    It's just JOD. Nothing has changed. This isn't Verizon... Oh wait. After promising you could walk out the door without paying a penny for your new phone, now you can only do that with some phones.

    I been using JOD since the s6 and it has been working great for me getting every galaxy and the little time I had with the Note 7. If you are upset about the deposit don't get the s8+ plan and simple. He didn't say JOD would be 0 down forever so get over it.

    How about you not tell people to get over it?

    And if he's going to change the terms, then he should grow a pair and come and say it's changing. Oh but wait, then he can't bash other carriers for that. So he just stays silent and sneaks it in.

    I am a phone junkie....like most on these forums. I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile just because of JoD.
    I have 3 JoD lines and one Jump. If they keep tweaking JoD I have no problems switching back to VZW.
    They have better coverage in areas i go hiking and fishing and in buildings.

    Imho...they should not charge a down payment for JoD, considering as JoD customer we will be switching phones anyway. They are in essence charging us a JoD tax to use JoD.

    I paid the $130 to preorder the G8 +. I will wait to see how it goes witht eh Note 8 later in the year...but if they continue along this path....I might just switch my lines to VZW. Better coverage and unlimited data and I might just buy my phones outright on VZW. It might turnout to be the same price in the long run.

    Exactly.

    I have 6 lines, 5 of them currently on JOD. But that's soon to be 4. I ordered a S8 (that was supposed to be mine until my GF claimed it) directly from Samsung. I'm going to take her phone and Jump it to another phone, and then return it before 14 days to get out of her Jump.

    After she claimed that phone, I ordered a S8+ but I had no problems telling them that the down payment was just a money grab. I did luck out a little because the rep couldn't get my card to process and I had to go dig another one out of the safe to use so he gave me a $50 credit for my trouble.

    Because of another large credit I just received from them for another issue, I didn't have a cell payment in March and won't have one in April either. 3 of my 5 JOD lines will be at the end of their 18 month lease, so I might take that opportunity to say See Ya to T-Mobile.

    All I'm saying is things change all the time and you have a choice to accept it and stay with it or move to something different at the end of the day it's is just a phone people. They not forcing you to get that phone or any other phone. If you don't want to pay the $130 It's plenty other options for phones out there that is 0 down payment.

    In other positive news both these phones looked great but neither wowwwed me. I still pre ordered the s8 because it's better the s7 edge and I got 3 jumps so why not but all this did was make me more anxious to see the Note 8

    There's nothing wrong with things changing if the CEO, who prides himself on bashing the other carriers all over social media, comes out and says 'we didn't want to but we can no longer offer JOD with no down payment on certain phones'. But no, he just does it and continues to bash the other carriers for going back on their promos while doing the same himself. He's a hypocrite right now and should be labeled as such.
