Also, t-mobile announced today a program that they call jump which will allow you to upgrade your phone twice a year; don't know all the details but you can research it on your own.
Jump: Phone Upgrade Twice a Year | Just Upgrade My Phone | JUMP! | T-Mobile

Buy a new smartphone on a Simple Choice Plan using our Equipment Installment Program.

Enroll in JUMP! for $10 a month when you add Services to your order.

Upgrade as soon as six months after enrollment. So basically pay a good ol 60 bucks before you upgrade.

We renewed ours at the beginning of the year and we're still tied into that BS cancellation fee-per-line thing.
I've been paying for my moms family plan for 8 years now with T-Mobile and am looking to pretty much branch out on my own seeing as how no one but work really calls me.

Pre-paid seems to be the better arrangement nowadays.
You can sign up for the Jump program even though you are still in contract. The program is separate from the plans.

sure I'd like to sign up for Jump, but not for $10 a month. But then again, it doesn't surprise me. America isn't the land of the free anymore (wait, what, has it ever been?!) ha.
nvm
