T-Mobile has just announced its new JUMP! program that is “designed to provide customers with total protection for one of their prized possessions: their smartphones.” What this does is let you upgrade your phone not once every 2 years, but twice in one year. Yes, that’s correct, twice in one year. Here is how it works:

  1. Buy a new smartphone on a Simple Choice Plan using our Equipment Installment Program.
  2. Enroll in JUMP! for $10 a month when you add Services to your order.
  3. Upgrade as soon as six months after enrollment.
  4. Trade in your phone each time you upgrade so you can get the same great price as new customers for new phones.

And when does this come to the masses? July 14th. Of course, this is an extra $10 a month, but hey, to me that’d be worth upgrading every 6 months instead of 2 years. This all comes as the continuation of T-Mobile’s rebranding of itself as the “Uncarrier“. With the new JUMP! program also has come a new ad compaign, of which one commercial can be found above, and the others can be seen below.
