    There was a rumor Tmobile would ship beginning the 14th, and when i asked a rep, they said the release date is the 21st but it "could" ship earlier
    That's what they all say I don't think they're able to let you know it's going early that would be great though if it does. Make sure you have your myups setup on your phone LOL to track it

    Exactly lol, even though it's just a rumor, the fact that Canada is already confirmed to get it earlier leaves no reasoning for Tmobile to not do the same

    Just because there's an article stating some country is getting it early means absolutely nothing until phones start shipping. Until then it's just rumor.

    Rumor has it is that 1 month after launch date T-Mobile will remove $130 deposit for S8+ on JOD. This could be false but something worth thinking bout if your holding out.

    I hope Legere uses these current $130 down payments to hire more reps because if he does remove that requirement so soon after launch he's gonna be fielding the same negative feedback he's getting now.

    I agree if they go remove it I don't think 1 month after launch is the smartest move. I can see removing it before the announcement of Note 8

    I went to see the phone again at T-Mobile and the General Manager and Reginal Manger was there and they both said that what the plan was but havnt found anything about it so I think it's B.S. I can't see T-Mobile doing that especially after 1 month.

    Ughh the more I see the S8+ the more I want to cancel my S8 order and get that one. I gotta keep telling my self it's a 6 month rental until the Note 8 comes out. I'll gladly pay a deposit for that. Lol

    Yup it could be a move a sale technique to get people that are on the fence but until Tmobile release something I don't believe anything a rep tells me. I learned from the Note 7 mess that they don't know any more than we do.

    I have Jump On Demand also but I still pre-ordered the S8+ (knowing I'm getting the Note 8) and put down the $130 deposit because at the end of the day I'm a phone junkie and addict plus $130 isn't that big of a deal to me.

    Back in the day I would buy phones at full retail price and then deal with trying to sell it when something new was launched which was a pain. Now I just pay a little money, use the phone and then do a swap when something new comes out with Jump On Demand.

    Like my wealthy friend ALWAYS tells me...you have to pay to play and that's so true!

    Officially have my S8Plus Orchid grey on preorder now. Had quite a technical issue when I cancelled the regular S8 Preorder to get the S8Plus. But on the bright side Tmo gave me a 50% account credit and now my line is a regular eip with Jump instead of JOD which I like

    ]over on reddit, someone on r/tmobile said that they got word that JOD will no longer be offered after 4/30

    no idea how legit, but they said that was the end for new people, existing would remain on a grandfathered in plan

    here is the link:

    Not sure where you heard or read this, but I asked T-mobile earlier and they deny knowing of any promotion. If you had literature of a promotion, I would put some faith into it. Not willing to wait another month to find out it was false information.

    Me too. I'm ready to pull the trigger on the S8, even though I don't really want it. I'm hoping it's only a 5 month rental. I agree with the deposit on the Note8 as well. Although I vehemently disagree with their money grabbing tactics, I would relent because I would keep it a year.

    Things change? So he starts the video by railing against Verizon and how they go back on their promos and now he's doing the same. That's hypocritical. And people should just be ok with that?
    I'm sorry if this has already been addressed but are people actually complaining about the $130 as if that's T-Mobile trying to get one over? Because if that's the case, it seems a bit silly.

    I am confident that T-Mobile is trying to keep the phone payment to $30 or less. In order to do that with an $850 phone and 24 payments, you have to reduce the amount borrowed by $130. Sure, I bet they feel better getting that money up front as an equity payment given what has to be a substantial amount of bad debt but it's hardly unexpected. I'd rather have that anyway than a $36 monthly payment although as an interest free loan, I can see how people might choose otherwise.

    So when the N8 comes out at $925, expect a down payment of $200 or $205.

    And if you don't like it, blame Samsung for the price of the phone or yourself for wanting all the bells and whistles.

    You have clearly been sipping to much Legere Sunday Slow Cooker Kool aid.

    JoD was launched as a "walk out the door without paying a penny for your new smartphone" up to 3 times a year plan. They tried to do the down payment thing on the Note 7 and the backlash was immense so they relented and stopped requiring the down payment after 2 days.

    Now they are back at their antics again. There's still backlash but the difference this time is the reps are able to persuade people to the S8 with no down payment. With the Note 7 there was no other similar option.

    If the $6/month difference in monthly price between a down payment and no down payment has any effect at all on your monthly budget, people have no business buying a $850 phone.

    For people that use JoD like it was intended, a down payment of $130 for someone who switches phones even every 6 months, raises the monthly cost to lease the device to about $51/month.

    JoD isn't profitable for T-Mobile, I'm sure. But Legere spends a good portion of his day on social media ranting about how the other carriers go back on their promos, stick you with hidden fees, etc. So now he's changing JoD, which is going back on his word, which is exactly the thing he rails on the other carriers about. That makes him a hypocrite right now.

    Wow! T-Mobile IS trying to get a cash grab. It's obvious, not silly. If they were doing the customers any favors, the down payment would be an option, not a requirement. They word it like they are doing you a favor. If people are angry over this, what does that tell you? No favors to the customers.
    JOD should not be considered a loan. It's a rental program. If you want to keep it for 18-24 months, then JOD is not for you. If you'd rather pay $56 per month for the 6 month ownership of your phone, that's your choice. At least it's a choice, though.
    From my perspective, for whatever reason, they want to keep both the S8 and S8+ at $30 per month. Obviously, they will sell a lot more S8's because of this. I also don't think $30 per month is their ceiling.
    When the Note8 comes out, I think $35 will be their limit and they will require a down payment for the rest.
    So, for $900, it would be $60 down and $35 per month.
    Of course, that's assuming JOD is still around and they haven't killed it off yet.
    If anyone is dumb enough to put $200 or more down on a JOD, shame on them. I don't think even T-Mobile has the nerve to make those terms.
    Basically, they are slowing killing off JOD by changing the terms to be ridiculous to accept.
    This reminds me of how Verizon got people off of their upgrade programs and pushed them to 2-year equipment purchase loans on paying for phones outright.

    I ordered the S8+ Samsung and Samsung has already charged my card. My T-Mo order is still pending.
    I as well ordered my T-Mobile S8 plus from Samsung and my account has already been charged and cleared. Says "Preparing for shipment". Not sure how much longer it will say that but I check everyday to see if it has changed. I ordered the first day pre-orders went live also.

    So you order directly from Samsung? They might process the charging of the account different than TMO does. TMO doesn't charge unless a shipping label ahs been created and it is getting ready to ship it out. Not sure how Samsung handles this or how soon it will actually ship for them though....
