    JOD pricing? it is t minus 13 hours now and there is still no JOD pricing?

    • Ismael Rentas

      Here’s the JUMP! On Demand prices for the Galaxy S20 series:

      Galaxy S20 128GB: $249.99 down and $30 per month
      Galaxy S20+ 128GB: $449.99 down and $28 per month
      Galaxy S20+ 512GB: $599.99 down and $26 per month
      Galaxy S20 Ultra 128GB: $649.99 down and $26 per month
      Galaxy S20 Ultra 512GB: $849.99 down and $24 per month

      • Here is a thought. Let JOD customers chose to pay less on the down price and more on the monthly. For example: How about the ability to opt to pay $35 per month in favor of a more affordable down payment? Just a crazy idea here.

        • Android_God

          It is amazing to me that 1 would buy a $1,300 phone if they can’t afford a down payment! It really makes one wonder what other poor decisions you are making.
          It isn’t T-Mobile’s responsibility to pay your down payment

        • It occurs to me there is a distinct difference between buying (jump) and leasing (jump on demand). It also occurs to me that every costumer has a right to their opinion without our insulting them. But what do I know? I only live paycheck to paycheck in your expert opinion. Even though I have employees of my own that I pay. I can pay $1000 to lease a phone costing $1500 total, and then return it 4 months later if I thought that was a good financial choice, but I do not.

        • Ryan Loftus

          I can easily afford to pay for this phone outright with cash but it is absurd! The price of this phone is a freaking house payment! It’s a lot easier to justify a higher monthly payment than a giant down payment. I don’t think you realize there are people out there that do have money and can afford it but don’t feel like putting this much money down for a cell phone when they can Finance it interest-free over a couple of years. The part I don’t understand is I have $5,000 available credit on my T-Mobile account but they’re only willing to lend me 750 per line. That’s what’s pissing me off

        • steadymobb

          Well imagine this – you pay $0 down on a $1300 phone. Then, using JoD, you JUMP! to another phone 3 months later at $0…Tmobile loses money. They now have a $1300 phone that someone has USED (even if only for 3 months) and made 3 payments on…they were losing money before which is why they started having people put money down on JoD…add with it the OUTRAGEOUS costs of phones now ($1k+)…and thus, we have this.

          Back when JoD was introduced, phones were not $1k

          It’s not TMobiles fault. They started losing way too much money on these expensive phones. If the monthly payment was $80 people would bitch about that too

        • Ryan Loftus

          I never said 0 down. 200 ish would be good. 1300$ phone with 200 down and some monthly payments that phone is now 1000. I guarantee there’s people out there willing to buy that refurbished phone for a grand. And on a side note that $1300 phone didn’t cost tmobile that much. They can make profit on this but apparently it’s not enough.

        • steadymobb

          Just get it on EIP then. $0 down.

        • Ryan Loftus

          Its already done…. 200 down plus tax

        • steadymobb

          Damn u went for 512?! Congrats should be a beast

        • Mike

          Your reply is stupid af . JOD isn’t buying it’s leasing fool.

    • Steve Alvarez

      Yeah there is, he added the prices on the first article, when the new Galaxy S20 series was announced. If you go back to like the 12th or 14th of this month and find that article, he revealed the prices there. For JOD prices I think we’re like $700,$749, or $799 down, and $29 monthly. Something like that.

  • Kilroy672

    I want $300 of my phone when I place my order not a Virtual Express Prepaid Mastercard card. Because in the end your still paying full price for the phone- the Virtual Express Prepaid Mastercard card which doesn’t take anything off the total price of the phone .

    • Michael Duggan

      I feel that same way! I want it to be my down payment!

      • Android_God

        If you’re that hard up for cash that you can’t come up with a down payment maybe you shouldn’t be buying a $1,300 phone

        • Kilroy672

          Not everybody wants throw down either $449 or $849 for a down payment.. that’s alot of money .

        • dcmanryan

          That’s more fuel in the fire for the you can’t afford it argument.

    • Android_God

      If you’ve got credit cards that you’re paying interest on you can use that Express card to pay down those.

      • Mike

        Using credit cards isn’t smart usage factor will ding your credit score with the phone being over $1k

        • dcmanryan

          Not necessarily. If I’ve got a card with a $25k and spend $1500 it will not affect my score. Being below 30% of your max credit limit and you should be fine.

          Using a credit card you’re not going to pay off immediately is idiotic as TMobile charges 0% interest and most credit cards charge quite a bit of interest.

        • Mike

          How many ppl have a $25k limit on their credit cards not many. Plus I had the option to increase my credit line to $20k and I declined $10k and a $6k credit line is more then enough for me. Plus you unless u plan on paying it right off before the grace period you’re better off financing thru T-Mobile which is interest free.

  • joremero

    no, they are too expensive
    even samsung.com offers more for trade in for a note 10 for example…but I would need to pay $500 to go from my note 10 to the s20…why in the world would I do that?
    edit2:samsung.com trade in also saves you in taxes…not with tmobile

  • And again the hate for existing customers! Must Add a new line! Stop this madness T-Mobile

    • Android_God

      Totally! You would think T-Mobile would want to extend an offer without having the caveat of adding a line given that I would be committing to T-Mobile for 2 years!

    • Matt Ferguson

      I can’t be too mad at them since they have continued to allow me to have my grandfathered unlimited plan for $90 for two lines and recently said I can add up to 12 people to my account that for the last few years was capped at 5 total.

    • Tmo_User

      Where does it say you have to add a line?

    • WONDROUS5000

      this does not require any new lines. deleting your comment would help the community.

    • Bklynman

      Only if you are going to buy 2,u have to add a line.

    • Brandon Robinson

      Giving you 70 percent of original msrp for a two year old, very used phone, with out adding a line, and yet you are still on here whining

  • Matt Ferguson

    That source page doesn’t show me the trade-in information. Where exactly are these values coming from for the various handsets?

    • Alex Wagner

      Hey Matt, I got these trade-in values directly from T-Mobile this morning.

      • Ryan Loftus

        No trade in for the Samsung s8 active?

        • AA-Ron

          Probably same as s8

        • Bklynman

          Look again,u can get $300.00 off for the S8.

        • Ryan Loftus

          Just looked again and still dont see the “s8 active “

        • Bklynman

          You look what AA,ask about. The s8,not the s8 active. Go to Samsung site itself,to see if they offer credit for it.

  • Francisco Peña

    I like that I’d get $500 on my S9, but then I’d have to wait 6-8 weeks to get that card. While I can use the $500 to pay down my phone, it will do NOTHING to lower the monthly rate, nor that downpayment (for me I’d get the 20+) on JoD. All it would do is shorten the over time I’m paying.

    This is tempting, but not wanting to pay down $450 DP means I’ll pass, and just wait til next year when the phone is lower in price.

  • I think that T-Mobile has kicked JOD to the background, which is a shame because I have been with T-Mobile for 6 years now, even when egregious errors were made costing me loads of money and on my account, just because I have the consolation of leasing a phone. With the current down payment of JOD phones shooting through the roof, I have to look for a carrier that can offer a similar program or a manufacturer who lets you lease. T-Mobile is becoming a career for a select few as far as good devices are concerned. If you want lower grade devices, at least for now, you may be lucky for one more year before even those prices shoot up. It is all so disappointing.

    • Mike

      JOD is a joke now. You’re better off getting ATT next . Sprint use to have great lease deals but the service was too horrible at the end of the day.

    • steadymobb

      Well imagine this – you pay $0 down on a $1300 phone. Then, using JoD, you JUMP! to another phone 3 months later at $0…Tmobile loses money. They now have a $1300 phone that someone has USED (even if only for 3 months) and made 3 payments on…they were losing money before which is why they started having people put money down on JoD…add with it the OUTRAGEOUS costs of phones now ($1k+)…and thus, we have this.

      Back when JoD was introduced, phones were not $1k

      Blame phone makers, not tmobile

    • Bklynman

      I am wondering how the merger will effect the phones Sprint sells,if you go to their site,you will much more section than Tmo. Also they sell Samsung windows tablet. Which Tmo doesnot. They sell Samsung A50,which is great midrange phone I would buy in sec,for only $350. 6.4,4/64. Great camera. Tmo sells nothing close to it in terms of specs.

      • My guess is that they will let Sprint operate independently under their current brand with the phones they have, just like Metro does. The two carriers will share infrastructure such as broadcast frequencies and cell towers. They will also share the same management. I have to look it up but it looks like Sprint uses CDMA while T-Mobile uses GSM phones currently.

        • Bklynman

          So u think Sprint will continue to be around operating as Sprint?
          I thought that they were merge together form only one carrier under Tmo name. Yes Sprint uses CDMA,I believe they use sim card now like Verizon phones do,not sure how they work with sim card and CDMA at the same time. Maybe someone on here that understand this better than me can explain that. Also maybe someone can explain what does Tmo does with all the phones that are return to them,they sure as heck don’t sell them on their site for used phones,no one one who works for them or used work for them ever answer this question.

        • Daniel Moore

          Nope Tmobile just wanted them out of the way ans increase Tmobiles revenue

  • Android_God

    All of the whining about down payments! It’s pretty amazing how many people are making poor decisions with their money and then they want to bitch and moan about it

    • CarlKL

      Exactly my thoughts. If you cannot pay cash for it upfront, likely you cannot afford this phone. People confuse wants with needs all the time. Livin’ paycheck to paycheck..so sad.

      • Francisco Peña

        Not everyone wants to dish out $1100 for a phone out right, even if they have the money.

        I will B and whine about a $500 downpayment for a phone as its excessive if its a finance option and not paying outright.

        If you can pay for it outright and not worry, then great for you. There are plenty of people that can’t, and maybe this phone is a replacement for a phone they’ve kept for 4 yrs, and plan to keep this one another 4 yrs.

        • Bklynman

          That being the case,just go out buy A Note 9,last I look on Tmo site,they were still selling them,for half price when it 1st came out,for
          $665. I did that too,held on to my Note 3,until,until the Note9 came out. Just get a credit card,just use it to buy a phone with it. Then when the phone is paid off,sell it,go out buy another yrold fllagship,do the same thing again. I am hoping finally that Tmo will be starting to sell mid range phones with 4/64/6/128, 5.7-6+screens thanks to Moto.

        • Francisco Peña

          When I got my S9, about less than a yr later, Samsung was selling new S8’s for $350 on their site. I ordered one for the wife. Now if these were our previous LG phones, they’d have bootlooped by now.

        • Daniel Moore

          exactly you can even buy Note 9 for $500 and under

        • steadymobb

          If you plan on keeping it 4 years then it sounds like an investment and you’ll get your money’s worth. Phones didn’t used to be $1300… They are now but there are PLENTY that are not that are still great phones. Samsung has some good mid range phones and you also have the S10 and OnePlus

          Price isn’t that bad on EIP

        • Former YU Guy

          you are making a bad financial decision if you don’t pay for the phone out right on a credit card. most credit cards will extend the warranty a year if purchased outright, but not if financed. This helped me many times on a number of LG phones that boot looped where the credit card company refunded my money when the phone was out of its manufacturer warranty and phone repair places basically said it was irreparable without replacing the whole phone.

          of course one could pay for extended warranty, but that’s possibly even more irresponsible spending.

        • dcmanryan

          Have to disagree with you unless that credit card is paid off ASAP. Financing a phone through a carrier rather you can afford it or not is at least interest free.

          The best advice is cash is King.

        • Daniel Moore

          Exactly and if anyone noticed many of last years phones are almost half off, Remember that S10 plus that everyone had to have can be found now under $500 bucks. I have a paid off Note 10 plus, do they think im going to take a two month old phone with 256 memory and 512 sd card and jump to a new model when mine can run circles around the S20 in many ways. Why is everyone jumping on the newest model and many dont even use 1/2 of its features $1400 is a lot of car payments or Rent payments. Dont get me wrong if you want it buy it. Do the homework you can find better deals directly from Samsung

      • Joe

        The American way. “How much down and how much per month”

  • tmo_repatl

    I think what a lot of people aren’t realizing is that the max T-Mobile will finance a device is $720-$750. This was implemented when contracts went away a while along. The problem is that the device prices have increased EVERY year since then and T-Mobile has done nothing to change the amount they’ll finance thus leaving customers left to cover the difference. ALL promotions/discounts etc are done after the point of sale.

    My advice would be to wait about 2-3 months after the devices are released. Head over to Swappa.com and purchase them for at least $200 off of retail. Use PayPal Credit and pay it off within 6 mths with $0 in interest.

    Either that or take complaints up about the cost of devices with the manufacturers not the service providers (since service providers won’t change the amount they’re willing to financing)

    • Albert Orange

      ? Um… they are offering them for $0 down on EIP. They are financing these phones for a lot more that $750.

      • tmo_repatl

        I’m currently at work and have not been presented with information about the Galaxy S20 devices being $0 for any customer (I could see the S20 being $0 down for super well qualified)…do you have an article or link stating such (I’m always willing to stay informed on the latest updates)? The point that I was attempting to make was that as the price of devices go up so do some of the down payments…and T-Mobile can only control how to make it more comfortable for customers to get the device (BOGOs w/add a lines, rebates after trade ins, etc.)

    • Manbearpig

      I ran into this when I want the Note 10+. I have a S10,S9,G7,Tab S4 and a Galaxy Watch. They said even though I was on the JOD my limit wasnt enough to get the phone without a massive down payment. Needless to say I was pissed.

    • Mike

      T-Mobile needs to reevaluate there EIP terms. If you’re well qualified or had service with T-Mobile for so many years then customers should be able to get $0 down . Every other carrier offers $0 down on all phones.

  • Jesse Wisener

    No BOGO(ish) price if I just want to buy two phones outright on my existing 3 line plan?

    • Mike

      Tell me a carrier they’ll do BOGO on a new flagship device without adding a line so I can switch to them

    • Ja D

      ..

    • Albert Orange

      Hopefully Costco will match it. Lots of times, the match corporate T-Mobile’s Samsung offers, but they do a 1 time payment on a prepaid VISA instead of bill credits….. then you can cancel the line after you get the card!

    • WONDROUS5000

      Why would T-Mobile voluntarily lose thousands of dollars for no reason?

  • Praisedeath

    jod customers have to pay more than the eip, looks like I am done. If I have to out down 850, I might as well buy it instead.

    • Daniel Moore

      Go direct to Samsung you get 700 on trade in plus 200 to buy accessories

  • Mike Sage

    I’m not seeing the BOGO deal anywhere on Tmo site

  • The Great Brian First

    If it wasn’t for this site, I might not have known about the $200 deal. That doesn’t come up on T-Mobile’s site when pre-ordering, just the $500.

    • WONDROUS5000

      It’s a Samsung promotion, nothing to do with T-Mobile. Visit Samsung’s offers page in Mobile and check it out.

      • Reagan1

        So, if you buy thru TMO, do you still get the Samsung $200 promo/deal?

        • WONDROUS5000

          yes.

        • Erick Saint

          How do you claim this credit if you’ve already pre-ordered through T Mobile?

        • Andrew Singleton

          Shop Samsung app once you receive the device

        • Erick Saint

          Thanks!

  • Gwen French

    How do we submit for the $500 rebate? I pre ordered the phone in store and it should be arriving today but I can’t find any info on the rebate.
