    Can someone confirm for me if I was to keep the phone for 1 to 2 years will I be able to KEEP the phone or would I have to still trade it in on order to get a new phone? Thanks.

    Hmm good question. I would assume if the phone was paid off then you would be able to keep it. But in the same hand they want u to trade in your older phone in order to get a newer one. In reality the jump program probably wouldn't be good for u if you plan on keeping a phone for longer then a year. If the phone was paid off then you could just sell it on eBay and take that money to buy a new phone.

    That would be crap if they did require it to be traded in. It would be good because I get to pay monthly on the device and not all at once though.

    T-Mobile's normal plans also allow you pay off the phone over time with installments also. The jump program just gives you the ability to upgrade in six months with out having to have your current phone paid off already. But if your not gonna upgrade often then it's not really worth it in my opinion.

    I was just trying to find a way to use the payment plan and also retain the device as well. But I did forget about tmobiles normal plans. Thanks for the reminder. I have a grandfathered plan with them so I'm trying to decide if I want to change that to one of their new plans without having to trade in the device. It seems tmobile is the only one (possibly sprint when they release their program) where you can retain your original phone (but not the jump program sadly correct?)

    If you use the regular device payment plan you can definitely keep your device. Edge let's you upgrade early. When you upgrade and there is still a balance owed you will need to turn your old device in.

    You can choose to pay off the remainder of the phone and keep the device. If you upgrade after paying half of the device then a trade in is required, or optionally you can choose to pay the whole cost and keep the device
